Kids, gather around so I can tell you a story. A story of heartbreak, and frustration, and 'OhMahGerdWutTehF00kzRurThinking!'

I got a case yesterday where a user couldn't ssh to his EC2 instance. Simple enough, I see these quite often and I just about have a playbook to run by for these. *just about*, I say.

Yesterday I spent a decent amount of time troubleshooting with the user. Mostly emails back and forth (which would have gone faster, but the user and I both...

News 150318
I have made a perfect (as I think) Linux ARM system for Raspberry Pi 2. I call it RaspEX. It is based on Debian Jessie (upcoming Debian 8), Ubuntu Vivid Vervet (upcoming Ubuntu 15.04) and Linaro (Open Source software for ARM SoCs).

What is Raspberry Pi?
The Raspberry Pi is a low cost, credit-card sized computer that plugs into a computer monitor or TV, and uses a standard keyboard and mouse. It is a capable little device that enables people of all ages to...

I've been bashing Comcast a lot lately, but today an even stranger "let's piss Jonathon off" event took place. See, we use Comcast for internet service only. I'd like to be in a position to go with fiber, but until we buy that dream house up on the hill, I'll have to settle (to be completely honest, Comcast isn't all *that* bad as I have written them up to be).

Won't work for embedded videos, though, as "youtube"...
