Spotify Finally Caving In On Their Most Prominent Feature? Not Good

According to rumors that have been circulating around the internet over the past 2 days or so, it appears that Spotify is poised to give up the one thing that made them so special – unlimited music for free customers. Forgetting the fact that this model was pretty much the main reason for their growth, as well as a key trait in helping to reduce piracy among the masses, this isn't a good idea. Below the fold, I'll explain why.

Happy New Year, From Techman's World

I know it's a little late into the evening as I write this, but I want to wish everyone who still visits this site a happy new year. I don't have much on the table in terms of resolutions but I still do try to write about things when I can, and hopefully remember to. Personally, 2016 was a year that I really wasn't in the Christmas/holiday spirit. External life factors ruined that for me right before Christmas, really.

I've considered putting a few ads on the site to see if it generates a little revenue that I could use for the betterment of the site, but that's something I'm still thinking about. Either way, I wouldn't ask anyone to turn of their ad blockers for here unless they personally did it themselves. I know I wouldn't unless it was a small town person, anyways.

Techman's World Turns 5! 🎂🎉

I really don't post a lot (and I should really stop saying that because it's well understood), but I don't forget the important things. If you wind the clock backs ~5 years, that's when this site was created. That said, every 18th of December adds another notch to the metaphorical rope that is the life of Techman's World.

Fixing the site background

It's been a long while since I've submitted something here, and I apologize for the folks who have stuck around, or kept me in their RSS feeds. As always, I can be found pretty regularly on Techtronix if you all want to chat with me.

I've finally had some time to go ahead and take a look at the site again, and the first order of business that I've taken is to fix the background image. It no longer has that clunky looking background where the 2 gradient colors don't align properly. It's now properly uniform within the entire length of the site, and it looks properly on mobile as well.

Redshift Status Update, RX 480 Issues, and more

With the summer months slowly winding to a close, folks here who are somewhat attentive might notice something: Redshift still isn't a completed project. Come September, Redshift would now have been under construction for over a year. Sad, right? Well, I have some explanations for it that are rather frustrating.
