Better days coming hopefully.

Posted 07-16-2013 at 11:14 AM by peonuser

Started working with some Arduino circuits. Digital, analog and pwm. Built the tv out interface, but it does not work with ethernet ugh. Had a real nice project planned. in any case I was able to do web page scraping. Installed the ide for Arduino on the laptop.

Changed the root password on the Beagleboard.

Already had motion working on the RPi. The RPI basically only uses digital. Might experiment with r2r before getting some adc and dac chips.

Feet in the Fire

Posted 07-15-2013 at 02:16 PM by mosiac

I didn't even realize that this site had a blog so I thought I'd get started and post something. I'm a Linux / Windows / VMware admin who got thrown into the mix instead of gently let down into it (something I'm sure many people are familiar with).

Anyway today's major issue was trying to figure out how to calculate space used by log files generated by a database over a specific date.

Well I knew that "df -h" would give me all the space used on a drive...

I've changed the domain name of my site

Posted 07-15-2013 at 05:53 AM by Pyplate

I was using a free domain name supplied by noip.com, the dynamic DNS provider that I use. This looked unprofessional, and it was hurting my search engine ranking.

I bought a new domain name, and instead of using a dynamic DNS service, I just pointed it to my external IP. My ISP is known for hardly ever changing people's IP address. It's a risk to not use a dynamic DNS service, but I think it's a small risk.

My site currently uses a CMS that I've written myself....

A new version of the Ultimate Linux System

Posted 07-11-2013 at 11:21 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)

ExTiX 13 64 bit is a remaster of Ubuntu 13.04 released on April 25, 2013. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). After removing Unity I have installed Gnome 3.8 and Cairo-Dock 3.2.1. The system language is English.

NEWS 130711
ExTiX 13 has been downloaded in thousands via Sourceforge.net. Today (130711) I have uploaded a new version (130711) with Gnome 3.8. This new version of ExTiX 13 is bug free (as far as I know) and uses the latest kernel 3.10....
