December Update: Merry Christmas and Happy New PineTab

Merry Christmas, happy holidays and a Happy New Year to you all. This month’s update has a different formula from the usual – aside from the announcement of the PineTab2, most of this month’s content is dedicated to looking back at this year and taking a sneak peak at what’s to come in 2023. I […]

So then, somewhat uncharacteristically, this is a response post to Martijn Braam’s blog in which he explains why he left the PINE64 community. Let’s get one thing out […]

My DIY low-power 6 SSD NAS based on the Quartz64 ARM board

ARM SBCs have been around for a few years now. They were made popular and accessible mostly by the RaspberryPi released in 2012. I’ve been enjoying building countless projects around these boards : web servers, home-automation, camera recording, IM bots,… A new trend has recently appeared in the SBC world : the PCIe slot!
