      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 know we have guys with Pi's and wide interests. With the holidays, some of us actually get some peace and quiet, and it's a great time to get that idle gear you bought this year doing something useful. Raspberry Pi's are probably sitting around unused by many of us, so I thought why not promote getting them doing something . Nice little devices, with the right software. So, we all know Pi's can run Kodi and related AV TV zombie causing tasks. Blah. There is other stuff, that's what we want here. Ready to download to copy to SD card and BOOM the Pi becomes useful. Accepting recommendations from others to append to this list. Here we go, my list of Pi distros folks might enjoy: Apps: https://arkos.io/ http://ubos.net http://dietpi.com/ (mininalist OS loaded with more traditional apps) http://blog.hypriot.com/post/heavily-armed-after-major-upgrade-raspberry-pi-with-docker-1-dot-5-0/ (Docker focused Pi) https://yunohost.org/#/install_on_raspberry Firewall / Router / Security: http://www.ipfire.org/ https://github.com/m6urns/i2pberry (i2p - alternative to ToR) https://code.google.com/p/torberry/ (Tor Distro) http://docs.kali.org/kali-on-arm/install-kali-linux-arm-raspberry-pi (security distro) https://github.com/ccrisan/motioneyeos (DVR / security cam distro) https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/3815507/pivpn/pivpn-2015-05-05-raspbian-wheezy.7z (softether distro for Pi) https://piratebox.cc/raspberry_pi:diy (Pirate Box - local sharing via wifi) Music: http://www.pimusicbox.com/ https://volumio.org/ http://www.runeaudio.com/ Other: http://rbb.antitree.com/ (ToR optimized for Pi as a bridge) http://raspberrypi-hacks.com/7/turn-your-raspberry-pi-into-a-fm-transmitter-hack-radio-frequencies/ https://www.trustwave.com/Resources/SpiderLabs-Blog/Wardrive,-Raspberry-Pi-Style!/ Free Magazines: http://magazine.odroid.com/ https://www.raspberrypi.org/magpi/
  2. I know a lot of the folks around here were fans of Crunchbang distro... for older hardware, minimalist GUI, etc. Crunchie tossed in the towel earlier this year. For a long time the dev and releases were really delayed. Someone else has picked up Crunchbang and running with it for the future. They have a release ready for your downloading and install pleasure: https://crunchbangplusplus.org/ vpsBoard member @Munzy has set up some direct downloads (Crunchie+ is doing the Torrent download only thing): https://cdn.content-network.net/mirror/crunchbangplusplus/1.0/
  3. I have a HP mini netbook with Atom N2800 processor and 2GB RAM. It came pre-installed with Win7 starter (32-bit) and it works great. With my itching to use Linux, I installed Linux Mint 13 (XFCE) as dual boot and it works fine. But I cannot feel it as smooth as Win7 runs. Running Linux Mint MATE edition was awful. Appreciate your suggestions for any other Linux distribution that is well optimized for my Netbook's configuration.
