Setup my Raspberry Pi 2 system as a dedicated Xlink Kai headless device, along with DHCP server for the Ethernet with the wireless card as the Internet connection, setting up the routing, and startup crontab for getting the Xbox connected to the Internet for gaming and setting the time and date automatically, starting Kai automatically, and starting the routing bash file.

Default settings, because 1024x768 and 2001 go together like bread and butter. However the pre/pro was reporting that it was receiving a 4096x2160 signal, so obviously the GPU was upscaling the image. Not sure if that impacts performance at all, but whatevs.

Setup another Raspberry Pi (3B+) in preparations for the Xlink Kai setup like the Pi 2B for another Original Xbox (the other 1.6b) so that I can do console linking online or in my house. Going to setup one more for the 1.0 system and make another Kai account for the system. I created another one for the second 1.6b Original Xbox for the Pi 3B+ system and it will have the same exact programs, bash files, and routing, except the DHCP server address will be different.

A lot of Raspberry Pi-ing going on. I'd set up my Pi 3B as a Pi-Hole fairly recently, but yesterday my Pi 4 4GB arrived and I've... done scarce little. It's set up, I messed with it a bit, but other than that... not much. It does 'feel' quite a bit faster than the 3B, though-- I did a little browsing with it and stuff-- and YouTube is so much better on it than on the 3B.

Not sure exactly what I'll do with it but I just knew I had to have one.

Installed Magic DOSBox Free on my Nexus 7 2013 tablet and that runs better than aFreeBox. I'm using an external keyboard and mouse for gameplay and it's really smooth (in some cases).

Also, I added 3 more lines to the wifi-to-eth-route.sh file on my Raspberry Pi 2B to shut the ethernet interface off, wait 5 seconds, and turn it back on once the routing and NATing initializes, including DNSMasq since my Original Xbox decides to use a different IP address than the one in the DNSMasq (since I have Xlink Kai to initialize at startup prior to the routing/NATing from the Wi-Fi to Ethernet) and not connect to the Internet for setting the time and date automatically once the power is restored (power strip turned off for a while, then back on).
