Moving to Home Assistant

I am busy moving away from my VeraEdge installation to a Home Assistant running on a Raspberry Pi 4. This is because it looks like the maker of the VeraEdge was bought and it is slowly being phased out.

For this I am using the following parts:

SeedBoxes

A seedbox is a dedicated server at a high speed datacenter with a public IP address for the downloading and seeding of bittorrent files. Persons who have access to a seedbox can download these files to their personal computers at any time and from any place that has an internet …

Former United States President Dwight Eisenhower was responsible for putting together one of the most important yet fundamentally simple to understand concepts in time management. Eisenhower's Urgent/Important Principle is a tool to help decipher what tasks need to be addressed more immediately than others. Anyone who uses the principle …

Mail Archiver ideas

We use it for receiving junk e-mails (i.e. for those times where we need an e-mail address for sign-up to a service).

Windows administration from the command line

libmspack

Recently I found this Open Source project. Apparently it recently gained support to unpack Exchange Offline Address Book files. What I don't know is after you unpack it, how would you use such a file. Intriguing but apparently falls a little bit short. Probably would need to try it out …

Diskless Archlinux

I am still to test this recipe

Server Configuration

First of all, we must install the following components:

  • A DHCP server to assign IP addresses to our diskless nodes.
  • A TFTP server to transfer the boot image (a requirement of all PXE option roms).

Program Documentation

So these are my ideas on how to document projects. There are three types of documentation types:

  1. User guides
    Targetted and end-users of the software and people who want a brief overview.
  2. Man pages
    Again targetted at end-users but also sysadmins. Usually to address a specific feature.
  3. API level documentation …

Remote Bridging

Sometimes we need to connect two or more geographically distrubuted ethernet networks to one broadcast domain. There can be two different office networks of some company which uses smb protocol partially based on broadcast network messages. Another example of such situation is computer cafes: a couple of computer cafes can …

Automatically adding systems to an AD domain

When using virtualisation it is very common to create template VMs that can be cloned from. This makes deployment much easier than having to install a new VM from scratch. Unfortunately, the cloned VMs lack any Active Directory memberships and the VMs have to be manually added to the AD …
