Android Oreo on Nexus 6

I finally found out sadly that [l suspected this initially since the zip file was for Nexus 6P], that l cant run/push Android 8 aka android oreo to an unlocked old Nexus 6.

I need a Nexus 6P or higher. The creative hacking was fun though… ¬†ūüôā

Opensource – Get Canon EOS DLSR shutter count – Gphoto2

Looking into below, using an interesting blog post l found online from Christopher – click here.

Essentially l am trying to see whether l can get the shutter count of a Pro Canon DLSR camera without using any paid shutter count software.

Progress so far:

Success! – on a Canon EOS 7DMark II:

Above was obtained by – taking off memory cards, boot into Linuxmint, connect via usb 3 cable the camera to the pc, power up the camera, run the command in a linux terminal.

Good article(s) of Christopher:

Ants in Nature

After a little auto color correction using DaVince, as well as an audio 6db clamping using Adobe Audition, below is a short video using some clips l shoot using the Sony A7 with a Canon 28-135mm lens, as well as my LG G5 cellphone.

These clips were shoot in Park Forest, Eatonville, WA. I cant get enough of how super busy ants are when you view them up close.

Force Linux Clock reset with NTP – Raspberry Pi

My laptop and most of my workstations, dual boot say to W10, Ubuntu/Linuxmint/Kali etc.

I find the time changes back and forth between when logged into a unix OS and Windows OS.  Below helps me from Linux reset the time using ntp.

Useful commands:

sudo apt-get install tlsdate
sudo apt-get install ntpd

sudo service ntp stop
sudo ntpd -gq
sudo service ntp start

Below for setting the timezone when l used my raspberry pi
sudo dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

Alternative option:
sudo tlsdate -V -n -H encrypted.google.com
