    Always nice when you're Googling something, and you find your post from 6 ears earlier. Almost six years to the day, too. Anyway I was looking for this!

    Post Your Rides!!

    I bought this for shits-n-gigs, kind of. May fix the paint and make it my daily driver. IDK. I didn't find it... It found me... :D

    Pi-Hole + Squid Proxy on Raspberry Pi = Fast(er) internet

    So I live out in the country, and I have metered monthly bandwidth. Speeds really aren't that bad for commercial Wi-Fi, though due to monthly data caps I wanted to make sure that I can save as much bandwidth as possible. I was already running a Pi-Hole on my Raspberry Pi for almost a year, and...

    Bitcoin a pyramid scheme?

    Uh-oh, may trigger some people with this one. Personally I don't understand enough about Bitcoin to hold a strong opinion of it either way. I own a little (and I mean little) bit of it, but I don't keep up with the news or really care. I'd rather have 'real' money, and being someone who also...

    WHMCS vs Kayako vs Zendesk

    What sort of automation are you seeking? You can do automatic replies, closing of tickets after a period of inactivity, etc via kayako.

    WHMCS vs Kayako vs Zendesk

    For a support desk, I really enjoyed Kayako. WHMCS is nice, and perhaps it's changed over the last couple years since I've last really used it, but Kayako at the time (for a support desk) was much nicer and simply had a ton more features that came in handy for a large company. Keep in mind that...

    vpsBoard's Future

    Jonathan's right. The site was basically dead and I didn't want to keep paying for a small fleet of servers and didn't really have the time to consolidate everything. I 'closed it' to archive it, but the major plan was just to scrape the site and serve a HTML only version on some cheap shared...

    What are you using Raspberry Pis for?

    Nice. I'm wondering how the actual USB webcams perform versus that of a PiCam or other camera board module. Would you be able to get a higher frame rate with one versus the other? When I do the whole weather station thing I wanted to have an outdoor camera facing the sky and field behind my...

    What are you using Raspberry Pis for?

    My Pi has been running great as a "Pi-Hole" (see above). Think my other one will get some use as a weather station... stay tuned. :)

    Monitoring home network traffic... Solutions?

    Anyone here have a good recommendation on monitoring all at-home network traffic? I moved out to the country side and aside from Satelite Internet (no thanks) my only other option was the slightly better Wireless Internet from a local company. Better speeds and reliability, but I still have...

    In case you're wondering what Pi-Hole looks like.

    What are you using Raspberry Pis for?

    I've recently dusted off one of my Raspberry Pi's and decided to put it to work! Right now it's connected to my home network serving as a DNS server for my router and running Pi-Hole to accomplish that, I'm blocking ads, trackers, malicious domains, etc at the network level instead of using...
