INDEPENDENT STUDY: NEXUS 6P Glass replacement. It didn't go well.

INDEPENDENT STUDY with Andy Cowen from

I broke my phone. I was in a rush, and the phone fell face first into the pavement. The case didn't help. So I used some tape and removed the shards that would have my fingers run red with sadness, and blood. Then I laminated it with another layer of clear packing tape to protect me and it while figuring out my next steps. I didn't have insurance on the phone, nor would a warranty replace the screen though it is only 7 months old. So I opted to try to replace the glass. This was my attempt to replace the glass on the NEXUS 6P. It didn't go well. 

INDEPENDENT STUDY: Swapping drives in a Synology Disk Station

Independent Study With Andy Cowen

Synology Disk Station DS2415+

This time on Independent Study,  swapping up from a 2TB disk to a 6TB disk in a Synology Disk Station. The OS is the latest DSM 6 for October 16th, 2016. Before the video, a 2TB drive was removed and a 6TB drive put into it's carrier and inserted and a S.M.A.R.T. short test was run to verify the drive wasn't going to immediately fail and the system would accept it.
