» Debian Wheezy Mail Server – Postfix Dovecot Sasl MySQL PostfixAdmin RoundCube SpamAssassin Clamav Greylist Nginx PHP5. Linked to for the excellent diagram showing how everything fits together. Unfortunately my experiments with Postfix have not gone well (multiple virtual domains, email coming is identified for a local account but then shuttled to a different domain's catch-all account anyway...)     #

» Trailer Nite, all movie trailers all the time.     #

» Frozen Landscapes Tell a Winter’s Tale in New Photographs by Kilian Schönberger. Stunning.     #

» TrigBoard, a single-use type IOT device. It has one job, send you notifications based on some sensor data. I like the idea but at $30 I'm not sure about it, I can buy the ESP8266-01 devices for $3 and just program myself. I might get one to tinker with though.     #

» Dog-POV: Canine Speed Indicator. Hah, clever!     #

» Spice Hunting: Sumac. I have one recipe that uses it and can't figure out where to buy it in town...     #

» tmux can't create socket: Permission denied. Running into this on my home cygwin installation, the fix is to add a single line to your .bashrc: "export TMUX_TMPDIR=~/.tmux/tmp". Obviously you need to make that directory as well, but once that's in place tmux works like a champ.     #

» NASA | A Year in the Life of Earth's CO2. That's pretty interesting (especially look at Australia, they have so little...)     #

» Export a Command Line cURL Command to an Executable. Huh, simple enough.     #

» This enormous underground salt mine in Romania has been converted into an incredible amusement park. How the hell did I not know about this when I was there??     #

» MPEG-2 license key. Unlocks the ability for your Raspi to play MPEG-2 (with hardware decoding). Only a couple bucks, worth it if you need that sort of thing.     #

» Dialect Survey Results: COLORADO. That is super interesting, and while I've lived here a very long time I also don't pronounce everything with the majority...     #

» The Banana Trick and Other Acts of Self-Checkout Thievery. I don't know I've ever stolen from a self-checkout but they have made me rage. King Sooper's software is loads better than Safeway but neither is worth a crap to someone who knows what they are doing (self-checkout is at least 3x slower than having someone check me out, simply because the software will not keep up with me.)     #
