      Current state of vpsBoard   02/04/2017

      Dear vpsBoard members and guests:

      Over the last year or two vpsBoard activity and traffic has dwindled. I have had a change of career and interests, and as such am no longer an active member of the web hosting industry.

      Due to time constraints and new interests I no longer wish to continue to maintain vpsBoard. The web site will remain only as an archive to preserve and showcase some of the great material, guides, and industry news that has been generated by members, some of which I remain in contact to this very day and now regard as personal friends.

      I want to thank all of our members who helped make vpsBoard the fastest growing industry forum. In it's prime it was an active and ripe source of activity, news, guides and just general off-topic banter and fun.

      I wish all members and guests the very best, whether it be with your business or your personal projects.

  1. I have no clue if this is the proper place to post this, but I shall try! I'm looking for the best self-hosted project management system. (web based) Any experiences so I don't have to go through the trial and error stage? XD
  2. https://vimeo.com/87249046 So what did I build? My servers <-> Internet <-> Rapsberry Pi <-> Arduino <-> Shiftregister <-> blinking things Cronjob running a Ruby script This script does: Load list of ips and loop through list doing: Ping ip Try to login via ssh (key based) Check if other sessions are open Check if logfiles should be checked (logwatch report with bad words) Save short status to byte array Write this array to the EEPROM (512 bytes!!) of the Arduino (serial) Loop within Arduino Load array of status bits Loop through array For each item Increase counter and refresh digit display (count + 1) Check status of each byte Enable or disable LEDs So the digit display is showing which server status is currently displayed (0 to 9 - so 10 servers). The 6 LEDs (red/green/red/green/yellow/yellow) do show: Ping status (red bad / green good) Service status (red bad / green good) [if every required service is running or not] Other sessions are open (yellow) [so someone is playing around] Logstatus (yellow) [Hey I should look at those log files] I am still searching for a good 16 bit shift register (maybe the STP16C596A) and I want to add a 4x16 LCD module too. The Raspberry Pi is able to handle the stuff too but can only work with 3.3V input/output where the Arduino can handle 5V input/output. It is a pain to work with resistors for each single GPIO of the Raspberry Pi: And - of course - you save a lot of energy because the Arduino is more energy efficient. I like the idea of separated areas of responsibility: Raspberry Pi doing all the network and analysing stuff and Arduino doing all the electro-technics. I toy with the idea of buying a USB hub to connect several Arduinos with one Raspberry Pi. One Arduino for the LCD/LED stuff One Arduino for the temperature/light/movement stuff One Arduino for a touch button pad - each button for one action like ssh login and calling scripts, etc. Yup your right - I am currently running riot on this electro stuff. Edit: Added video link.
  3. Project Management System

    So, out of curiosity what's your preferred Project Management System? Team management, work management, etc.
