Thunderbird and Evolution Email Setup

Posted 08-17-2013 at 10:46 AM by wmromine

After recently upgrading my Linux OS from Squeeze to Wheezy, I needed to re-setup my email, again. My Internet provider is Time Warner Cable ("TWC") with their RoadRunner ("RR") service. Debian uses Evolution for the default email access. Initially, I thought I would search the Internet for the setup instructions, and quickly discovered it was pretty much a waste of time. I have another computer that uses Mozilla Thunderbird, so I just translated the settings to Evolution,...

Raspberry Pi Server Cluster Performance

Posted 08-15-2013 at 04:36 PM by Pyplate

I've done some testing on my cluster. 4 Pies is definitely better than one, there's a big difference in performance between a single Pi and a 4 node cluster. You can read more detail here: server cluster testing.

Load balanced cluster with Raspberry Pies

Posted 08-13-2013 at 03:19 PM by Pyplate

I finally got around to doing it. I've set up a 4 node Raspberry Pi cluster. It's not that powerful, but setting it up has been good practice.

I used an old PC running Lubuntu as a load balancer. I just installed Apache and I'm using Apache's balancer module. I installed Lubuntu because I'm using a very old PC that has 512MB of RAM. The PC is more powerful than the cluster, but if I just used the PC as a server, I wouldn't have learned anything about load balancing.
