Nvidia Shield testing to resume ... soon

A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I was getting an Nvidia Shield -- finally! -- and would be trying it out. Well, I changed direction when I decided to try it as a dedicated Plex server. I didn't like how that went, and switched back to setting up a Raspberry Pi as a Plex server instead. That went well.

But what about the Nvidia Shield? Well, I still have it. I removed the family member's credentials from the device, did a factory reset, and have now set it up for me to use. And I will use it. Eventually.

You see, I have a day job. And sometimes the job runs into the night. Not as much as things used to, but still somewhat. Mostly a day job. But I do have that job. And I have some other projects I've been working on.

I'm setting up and using a Linux laptop because I never have before. I've done Linux desktop, but I've installed it on a laptop, and am trying that.

I'm also very happy with the family member's Plex setup using a Raspberry Pi, and I'm now looking to move my Plex content over to a Raspberry Pi as well.

And, I'm beginning to get a little burned out from trying to do multiple projects at the same time, so I'm gong to focus on just one and see it through to conclusion, then start another one. In the meantime, I'm taking breaks and watching some TV. I mean, I put all this time and effort into setting up for streaming that I might as well use some of that.

Right now, there are three things in front of me.

  1. Using a Linux laptop as a primary laptop for a period of time.
  2. Setting up a Plex server on a Raspberry Pi.
  3. Using Nvidia Shield as a primary streamer for a period of time.

Sure, I could do all three at the same time. Or at least two of the three. But like I said, I'm starting to burn out a little, so I'll focus on one, along with simply enjoying streaming.

I don't know which I'll focus on starting this weekend. But I'll pick one and see it through. But whatever I do, I'm going to take my time and simply working it in to my Streaming Life. I'm neglecting that too much, and that will change.
