Make it last.

Don't throw away that old router yet (especially if it has dd-wrt or the like). The reason why I say that it allows you to set up an intranet (private network). Why would you need such a thing. Say you want to set up several computers, but did not want the network traffic to hit your internet network and slow it down. For example a gaming network. We are now using an intranet for the home automation network. The real world does not need to see or have access to what we are up to either.

My brother wants me to come over and watch the super bowl with him. He says he has something super for me. He sometimes has ulterior motives. Why do I feel like a mouse about to try to get the cheese from a trap? I do want to watch it on his new bigggg tv.

Took a spare p3 and built a web server to use with the web browserized Insignia Infocast (aka the Chumby). I nicknamed it the Poor-man's Ipad. Found some code that allows for an on screen keyboard for pages that are accessed....

One button internet shutdown....

Posted 01-30-2011 at 03:23 AM by peonuser

The U.S. congress is thinking about making it possible to shut down the tubes here in the US. That scares me that they would think it would even be needed to be done here. Is there something we are not being told?

"Tech world stunned at Egypt's Internet shutdown‎"

What if that were to happen here, could you survive? This is something to consider for those who insist to be all cloud based. Could you convert to an short term intRAnet? What options are...

Upgrades never end.

Posted 01-30-2011 at 02:52 AM by peonuser

You have to keep up with the Jones with software. This is especially true with server upgrades. Upgraded Wordpress and that was pretty much a snap. Ledgersmb does not work any more because of php issues, but then I never really used it. Probably have to replace with Sql-ledger. One of the reasons for getting phppgadmin working. Moodle needs to be upgraded. Have a lot of classes installed in it. Have to backup the data. Want to start using Drupal, may just tank the existing 6.x install and go for...

Does Ubuntu have any quality control?

Finally made phppgadmin work with the help of LQ and a lot of other sites. Wanted to use phpmyadmin for remote management of psql databases. What a challenge. I think I changed every spec in as many files. Went through every log known to man (or at least most admins). had to make the port specs agree. Made sure the port was open with nmap. The real kicker was I had to go into a couple of php files and update the code because some of the code was deprecated. I made sure and use pdfit (a firefox plug...
