As some have you noticed, my site (geekness.eu) has been suspended the last couple days. How? It all started when Torrentino was undergoing maintainence. I needed to move Torrentino to a server, so I could work on Torrentino a little more which I ended up parking torrentino.net and torrentino.info here (on my account).
Since my boredom has been growing substantially over the last couple days, I thought of building a SAN. Yes, a SAN, not a NAS. Get another web server running and put it in a round robin type config. Set up a SAN for centeralized storage (among other things), then yay!
Really, it's just an excuse to build more servers and use ports on my 24 port switch....
WorkSimple 1.2.3 was released the other day, improved on some things, 'optimized' some code.
Having to switch between computer to computer [locally] is tiresome. Yes that's right, rotating your head 75 degrees hurts after a while, nevermind the shift in your body.
I have a tri-monitor setup, plus two laptops. Moving my hands each time to keyboard sucks. This is where Synergy comes in. In short, it's software KVM, so to speak. That means no special hardware. Share one keyboard/mouse between multiple clients. Interesting, eh?
Here's a quick tutorial on getting it set up.
When I purchased my Linksys BEFSX41 I had two spare wireless routers a D-Link WBR-1310 and a WBR-2310 respectively. What to do? Turn them into wireless AP's (access points) of course! Increase your wireless coverage, look cool!
First thing's first, set up DHCP on your main router. For me it's the BEFSX41. Set your DHCP range, for example 192.168.0.150-199 giving you some room for wireless devices.
Jeez, almost been a week since my last blog post. Recently, I've been working on Sysode more and more. Numerous bugs have been fixed, yet there are more and more features everytime I work on it. It's open for registration, but more than likely your account will be deleted if you end up signing up.
I'm open for any feedback on it :D
'Drinking' from the /. Firehose, I came across numerous stories that TPB sold out. Couple minutes later after some Googling, it seems they sold TPB for 7.8$ million (SEK 60 million). I bet they'll be going the Napster way of things and make shitloads of money.
A new router wasn't really necessary, but I thought I'd get one anyway. I ended up purchasing a Linksys BEFSX41. Pretty cool router, it includes a firewall and VPN end point. What I thought was (for some reason) that the router would act as a VPN server. That's not the case. I'd need to run a server in my LAN for it to be accessible WAN wide.
Since you could do a round robin setup with a DNS server, could you not do the same but with a web server?
If you say "boots 'n cats" relatively fast, it sounds like you're beatboxing. Sorta sick right now, haven't really had the energy to work on anything (other than a little bit of Sysode).
Got my pi tattoo yesterday, pain wasn't that bad after all. It's like someone keeps pinching you in the same spot...and won't stop. Click here for a picture. Oh yeah, and it's me birthday today ;)
Finally, school is almost done so maybe I'll have a little more time for my projects and such.
I've been working on Sysode lately, and it's been coming along. It's still very beta, so register if you must.
Me birthday is on the 23rd, and I've been thinking of getting a pi tattoo, maybe shoulder blade or chest somewhere. If not, was thinking about a Blackberry 8330. The G1 is on Rogers and I'm on Bell for the next 2 years....
Anyway, finally get some time off so going to go play ET:QW
