So where have I been? Well I have been at university doing university things like drinking, partying, going to my classes, learning new things in relation to programming, working on robots for the university team projects, lots of things.

I originally planned to only be away for two weeks, I thought how busy I was would stop after a few weeks, but no I'm...

How to SSH Tunnel!

Introduction

After reading many various posts on SSH tunneling I failed to find a decent one that really explained how to do it without giving you a wall of text to read, so I have decided to write a little tutorial!

What is an SSH Tunnel?
An SSH Tunnel is a way to send unencrypted information over an encrypted network, i...

Sorry I haven't blogged in so long! Between my education and the weather here in the UK I have been quite busy.

So what's new I hear you cry? WELL I have NOT electrocuted myself (maybe a little) anymore! :D

I have moved over to using Linux all the time now and I no longer use Windows! Those who know me know that I am a huge fan of Linux but I must jus...


Day 7 - Skype, Mutt and Nano

pythonmutt, email, skype, nano and 5 more...
One of the main reasons I don't actually use Linux is due to the lack of alternatives for some of my favourite software such as Skype or Notepad++ [before anyone mentions WINE, the answer to it is just no, just no. A flat out absolute, undeniably definitely no.] now I don't exactly keep it a secret that I love the Command Line Interface (CLI) almost as...


Day 6 - KadyTorrent

First of all I must just say that I wanted to call it something less arrogant but seeing as Kady is my middle name and I wanted to call it kTorrent but wasn't sure if there was already a kTorrent out there (googling is so much work!) I called it KadyTorrent, now why am I going on about torrents when I should be mentioning about a raspberrypi? Well I did m...


Day 5 - Electricity is shocking!

Posted by Sundance, 10 January 2014 - - - - - - · 2921 views
accidents, electric, buzz
First of all I would like to say that I may or may not have electrocuted myself but if I did do so it was for research purposes and not an accident at all, I am not stupid* enough to touch two wires that when connected will produce a current. Albeit it was only a small current I did feel it and it felt good.

* Subject to daily basis and amount of alc...


Day 4 - Media Server

Due to having to wait for my cables to arrive in the post I was messing around with some old tech, I found enough parts to fix my old laptop and did so, giving it a 1.5TB HDD I have turned this laptop into a Intranet / media server and it certainly does the job!

As for my RaspberryPi I started to write the Python Script for it to check for emails and le...


Day 3 - You've got mail!

python, led, programming, mail and 1 more...
So I was thinking last night what could I really use my Pi for? Well I have came down to two logical conclusions the first being that I will use it as a downloads center with a 1.5TB HDD mounted on it and the second idea is to connect two LED's one will be red and will flash repeatedly when I have an unread email in my Mail.Ru account the second will be a...

Essential Apps
Today I installed the most essential app known to any linux user, cowsay ! I thought it would be a cute addition to my little Pi, currently I have been thinking of things I would like to code and a few things have crossed my mind, such as making a miniaturized web server to render my website scrapes or even develop a chat client / make a...
