Hi, I'm Carlo!


I've enjoyed technology for most of my childhood and was on the computer all the time playing games, animating, and coding in Actionscript, HTML, and Python. I've been doing other things recently though, mainly school, so I've lost touch on the tech side of things. I decided to join Geekzone to surround myself with a community of tech enthusiasts and increase my knowledge as I'm going to be a Computer Science student next year. I've also been wanting to buy a Kodi Box and have been looking at the Mi Box or Raspberry Pi so I'm in need of suggestions. Thank you for helping run an amazing site and I hope to have a good time!

I've had both - the Raspberry Pi is good for Kodi and tweaking, but the Mi Box also has Netflix and other similar services. I've had both, and ended up using the Raspberry Pi for a Pi-hole DNS server, and the Mi Box for TV, because of the separate remote and general wife-and-child-friendliness.
