The Coca-Cola machine with multiple drink selections and a touch screen

The Coca-Cola machine with multiple drink selections and a touch screen

Hi everyone, Today, we will see a Coca-Cola machine that is found on some fast-food restaurants. This machine is different than the usual drink dispenser as this one only has one dispenser. So you may wonder, how does it dispense the drink you want? The answer to that lies in the touch screen and how it is made internally. These machines have a touch screen that allow you to select your preferred drink. It also dispenses ice via the handle…

Creating a Windows 11 ISO for version 22000.376

Creating a Windows 11 ISO for version 22000.376

Hi everyone, Yesterday, Windows 11 Cumulative Update KB5008215 was released. As usual, I attempt to download the UUP files to create and archive the Windows 11 update. One thing of this update is that it was not released under the Cumulative Update section but as an “Upgrade to Windows 11 (22000.376)” UUP. For some reason, when attempting to create the Windows ISO image using this “Upgrade to Windows 11”, it seems to download invalid files, and the whole process fails….

TEGIC Block 01 Battery Issues

TEGIC Block 01 Battery Issues

Once again, I experienced a battery swelling issue. This time with the TEGIC Block 01 Power Back I received about 2 years ago and was a Kickstarter project I supported. The battery swelling issue happened on its own. The unit was fully charged before and didn’t present this issue. However, last week, when I attempted to use it, I noticed it got swell. The battery swelling seems to affect one side more than the other. It seems to be swelled…

Creating a Windows 11 ISO for version 22000.318

Creating a Windows 11 ISO for version 22000.318

Hi everyone, On the past few days, I struggled on making a Windows 11 ISO for the version 22000.318. For some reason, uup-converter-wimlib failed to create it and it seems it may have to do with some weird downloads. Yesterday, we got the version 22000.346 and I also downloaded the UUP files for it. uup-converter-wimlib was able to create an ISO for this version, so clearly something is wrong with the 22000.318 files. In fact, looking at the UUP file…

The cable has a length of 12 inches, which should be enough for most installations….
