    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...

    Thanks, dude! I'll give it a whirl.

    Tool for archiving / downloading a YouTube playlist?

    I have a YouTube playlist of just about 900 'videos' (songs) that I'd like to archive locally. It's music that I can stand, and I'd like a local copy to shuffle through. Are there any decent tools available that will do this? I can rip them one by one, but that would take way too much time...

    Jeeeze. I joined WHT in January of 2002. ( http://www.webhostingtalk.com/member.php?u=303925 ) I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't of looked it up. Fifteen years in the industry in some fashion or another, mainly as a consumer.

    The cesspit / chat thread.

    Looks like tomorrow morning there will be a very good pass of the SO-50 satellite. I've made contact with it once but it's not common to get great overhead passes like this. "SO-50 carries several experiments, including a mode J FM amateur repeater experiment operating on 145.850 MHz uplink...

    The cesspit / chat thread.

    Sweet tea isn't only for the south. I grew up on sweet tea, it was made by the gallon. I still brew some in bulk occasionally, usually in the summer months. But I'm a sucker for just buying a bottle when at the gas station.

    Probably better than the Leinenkugel and Taco Bell's mexican pizza I just ate.

    Someone reported a comment in this thread. I won't say who reported what, but let me just say this: Think about what you're posting and who all may be able to see it in the future. With that said, no action was taken because I felt like no action was needed. I'm all for free speech, and I'm...

    Where is the consumer hosting market going next?

    There is still money to be made servicing little shops and restaraunts. You see a new sign in town for a place you've never seen? Pop in! Tell them what you can do for them, whether it be a simple website with their menu that you can update once weekly for them to display new specials or...
