Raspberry Pi web server

Posted 06-13-2013 at 03:10 PM by Pyplate

I signed up to LQ a few days ago. I'm going to use this blog to document progress with my various projects.

I'm about a third of the way through writing a CMS in Python. The front end works quite well. It has built-in caching support and some SEO friendly features like meta page descriptions and tags. I've started on the back end, and I have a lot of work to do on it.

I'm hosting a web site on a Raspberry Pi, a small computer with an ARM11 processor running at...

Headcrab, and $NEWJOB

Posted 06-13-2013 at 12:38 AM by ttk (Unpopular Positions: One Geek's Take)

I haven't had time or energy to do much lately, because I started a new job. The first week or so will keep me tired and relatively inactive on my personal projects.

On the other hand, I may be allocating some hours to Headcrab development. Mutt is having a hell of a time with my new employer's IMAPS server. It keeps getting TLS packets with "wrong length" and falling into a craptastic state, requiring me to periodically quit mutt and restart it.

USB Receive and Rapid Parse, GPS Example

Posted 06-11-2013 at 09:17 AM by rtmistler

This is more of a general programming example which can be applied to other systems, in addition to Linux.

This is a discussion of an application programming scenario where a GPS device is attached via a serial USB connection to the system. Challenges faced in this project include:
  • Detecting a USB Serial Resource on your System
  • Configuring and Controlling a USB Serial Resource
  • Processing Receive Data from the USB Serial Resource
  • De-Framing GPS Data
  • Parsing GPS Data

Back a couple of blog pages
we were playing with color mixing and data clamping and all kinds of junk including comparing routines to mix colors by a floating point ratio.

This is mixcolors.c - named the same as the other version we were playing with and...

HOWTO: Set up Modsecurity on Debian 7

Posted 06-10-2013 at 08:30 PM by Rearden888
Updated 06-10-2013 at 08:43 PM by Rearden888 (typos)

There are many places online that explain how to install and perform initial set up for modsecurity on Apache. However, I haven't found anywhere that shows how to do it with the standard Debian packages and that respects the normal apt update process. The caveat here is that like a lot of standard Debian packages, the packages included in wheezy lag upstream by a few versions. This is obviously something to consider, especially when dealing with security related software. If you're like me,...
