Fire Stick

Get Downloader from the Amazon app store
pia for firestick (this also works on the Shield to get ad free Terarrium TV)
code 67724750 for "Downloading Pirate" files

I am totally impressed with the $19 Fire TV Stick I grabbed on Prime Day. Terarrium TV and Kodi work surprisingly well. Pushing streaming beyond Netflix and Prime can be fiddly so starting with a cheap Fire Stick will allow you to test your technical pain threshold before spending more. It's no Nvidia Shield but very workable. I really did not expect it to work this well.

HD streams are hard to find these days. I just tried Real Debrid and so far, it is a winner. There is a way to use PayPal for RD on the RD site. It will direct you to a third party reseller that does accept PayPal. It is not clear that you can use a credit card through PayPal but it worked for me. English is not their first language :) They charge a premium for PayPal but I think many credit cards would reject the sale to the foreign vendor. And I would prefer not giving my credit card number to these sites. I may be a Real Debrid convert.

Group Policy Editor Added To Windows 10 Home

I bought a new laptop awhile back that came with Windows 10 Home.  I don't use Group Policy Editor all that often but I do occasionally. It was irritating not to have it. I read about adding it but results seemed mixed. The following site said they had nailed the process and it worked flawlessly for me.
