Almost every computer needs some sort of case, so last year i alos ordered a Pi Box from Adafruit. Just like the Raspberry Pi its been sitting in a box waiting to be opened. Thanks to the smart design of this thing it was a breeze to put together. I think i spent more time taking off the protective coverings than anything else. I really like this case.
When the Raspberry Pi came out last year, i bought one. I had no a idea what i was going to do with it but i like tiny computers and i like linux so surely i needed one. Well its been setting in the box just waiting for me to open it. So now i finally have some time to play with it. I’m planning on getting it setup this week and see what all the fun is about.
I remember seeing or reading this somewhere but now they have a site up. Lots of good information.
“The Ops Report Card is a list of 32 fundamental “best practices” or “capabilities” that high performance sysadmin teams do. Use it as a checklist to examine where your team needs improvement.”
This is the best book I’ve read all year. I couldn’t put it down, as a person in the security field it was a very captivating tale.
I like to rip my DVD’s and put them in iTunes to sync with my phone or iPad. I’m sure I’m not alone and over time I’ve slowly added movies here and there as needed. You know the process rip the dvd, encode, add to iTunes, add the images, blah, blah. Its a long process if you do it right. So while searching for a better way to rip some of my TV show DVDs, I came across the best tutorial I’ve ever seen. Its all wrapped up in automater and I can’t save thank enough for how much time I think this will save me in the future.
