It’s been almost a month without a picture. Here’s an over view of what happened in that time:

  • Another version of iHog was shipped
  • Put out 3 YouTube videos about Git
  • Got a new computer (M1 Mac Mini) brief review below!

For the past week, I’ve been using the M1 Mac Mini as my main machine for live streaming, YouTube editing (only 1 video so far), and my coding machine. It’s been so nice to not hear my fans over my headphones. I haven’t run into any issues speed wise nor have I gotten the spiny wheel of death. I’ve been able to mix it in my full time job’s work flow also by using VS Code’s live share and there is still no noise.

This is my first non-MacBook Mac, and so far I’ve been impressed. I did spec it up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. I’ll probably end up wanting to get an external hard drive because 512GB doesn’t hold much video wise nor photo wise.
