Ubuntu MATE, Not Just a Whim

Fri, 21 Oct 2016 15:30:00 +0000

I've stated for years how much I dislike Ubuntu's Unity interface. Yes, it's become more polished through the years, but it's just not an interface that thinks the same way I do. That's likely because I'm old and inflexible, but nevertheless, I've done everything I could to avoid using Unity, which usually means switching to Xubuntu. more>>

Build Your Own Raspberry Pi Camera

Tue, 18 Oct 2016 09:30:00 +0000

During the past few years, my BirdCam setup has evolved significantly. As I mention in the UpFront section of this issue, I hope to get the stream transferred to a YouTube Live stream at some point, so I can watch the feathery show on my television. And although watching the birds is the end goal, I'm constantly on a mission to improve the quality and flexibility of my setup. more>>

Tue, 11 Oct 2016 14:15:00 +0000

You might remember a couple months ago my mention of Habitica, which is a gamification of your daily to-do list. One of my friends on Twitter mentioned an app he uses on Android called Wokamon, which ties in with your FitBit (or any of several other "step-counter" devices). more>>

The Peculiar Case of Email in the Cloud

Mon, 03 Oct 2016 12:00:00 +0000

Not too many years ago, if I wanted those services to be public, I'd simply port-forward from my static IP into my personal machines. Or, perhaps I'd set up a name-based virtual host as a reverse proxy if I needed to expose a Web app. more>>
