• Openhab

    Since the ninjablock company has run out of money, and is not supporting the ninjablock anymore, and its cloud service is pretty unreliable (at the best of times) I decided to merge all my homeautomation items with Openhab. At the time I adopted this, it was the only major, multi-vendor...

  • Mini DLNA and bubbleUPnP

    So ages ago I found bubbleUPnP (also an andoid app). I’d put this in the category of cheap plex server. I say this because the main reason I wanted to use it was for its on-the-fly transcoding to play media to the chromecast. The android app is also really nice,...

  • Fun with cPanel

    Recently have had to set up a few cPanel servers, and here are some things I ran into while doing so. One isn’t necessarily cPanels fault, but it still took me a long time to find a work around for it :/ Key based login for SSH Common practice for...

  • TV dashboards with chromecasts and dashing

    I had some time, and we had some TV’s hanging on the wall wasting space. So I decided to create a dashboard that could put some useful information on these TV’s for everyone to see Previously we were utilising the chromecasts with Greenscreen, and it worked well, but had its...
