Days 2-7: #20dollarlaptop

home, internet, media, technologies, technology

As many #pine64 reviewers noted in late 2016, support for the #pine64 is very much a diy affair. Even late in 2017, MfL has had to assemble our own set of resources for setting up the board. The good news is that there is a lot of helpful information out there; the bad news is that it is not all in one place. The best place to start is the Pine64 wiki: http://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/Main_Page Norm24’s schematic overview of the board has been an invaluable resource.

Where To Buy: Refurbished Vitamix Blenders

appliances, food, home, on sale

MfL has tested out several blenders, and we consistently find that Vitamix really is the industry standard. While certainly worth the investment at the retail price of $400 – $500, this is a major purchase. As a result, we were excited to learn that Vitamix is now selling refurbished models for $299, a significant discount off the price of the new models. Even better, the refurbished models come with A FIVE YEAR WARRANTY included in the sales price.
