Ive added some great new songs to my show as get back and are getting calls and interest from all over the coast. Ive also invested in a great light show including a DMX light control unit.  I also got a spinning pin spot and a smoke machine a laser and another larger floor LED flood panel. The laser isnt in action yet as i didnt knwo you needed a cut out switch to make the unit active but thats currently in the post!! We have sat down and looked at the unit and had it fully functional but need to learn how to program scenes and chases which is the next step and then we have to learn lisa this.. but we have a few weeks before we really need to take the full light rig. Im booked through january and into february but the calls come every day so please any bars / hotels or people wanting to play there parties please make sure you get in contact well in advance id hate to disapoint. I also have been gigging with my rock and roll band the twisters! we are three pice band – upright bass player and drummer and banging out a load of great catchy rock and roll tunes!  Keep a eye out for me as GET BACK or WAYNE PAUL WARD or THE TWISTERS on around the costa del sol.

Tech Time!…

Really enjoying the samsung note 8 its really moving mobile phones into the computer line. Im pretty stock with it and im just waiting for a dax and ubuntu for samsung note 8 installer … but hey thats another blog when i get my hands on it …

in a word presenting > ANTERGOS


I decided to switch from ubuntu after really they make big offerings and pull them and make to big changes for me. After buying a ubuntu tablet and a ubuntu phone for me and lisa and them just drop  them after a year was pushing it.. then they just pull unity and replace it with gnome just like that!.. i was pissed when they pulled ubuntu one but carried on. They just gone to far for something thats just not that great. I looked for a new system thats kick ass and geared towards gnome and i found antergos. Antergos is a arch based distro without the half day of setting up the arch system…

Ive been there done that wore the t-shirt running gentoo. The system sets up what i consider to be one of the most solid, responsive and versatile linux system ive used to date, bearing in mind i was there at the beggining! i tried antergos in a virtualbox and was planning on using it for a week maybe… a hour lated id made a bootable usb and installed from the live usb which pulls the latest installer and installs the latest version from the internet with all the packages you need !! steam.. office and you get to pick the desktop you want to run! awesome – as you can see i went with gnome! After running and trying it our for a day i could this was the one a proceded to setup my main computer / server and this went great as well! i did notice that gnome file share doesnt work out of the box which ive had a moan about on the forums but any way i followed this tutorial … ohh and i must say reboot after doing all this or it doesnt work – look here

A few things about antergos its rapid and can see the difference compared to ubuntu in speed and bloat … take it this way on the ubuntu xps laptop with ubuntu loaded the fans just run all the time red hot.. since antergos the machine is like new and havent heard the fans! and one other differnce of course is no apt-get install packagename !! i now get pacman -S packagename   nothing to hard about that!!! take a look at the OS its amazing!

We are still selling craft ale with craft on the coast – we mainly sell 3 monos and la catarina but have other beers in stock check out our website which is also growing database of craft ale bars in the costa del sol! http://craftonthecoast.es/

Any way we offer you peace and love for 2018 – and hope. If you have anger please replace this with happiness and love. You get one chance at this life. Again peace, love and hope.
