In my grand scheme of “abuse all the low-power computing things!”, I’ve moved my crashplan backups over to the Raspberry Pi 2 (rpi2 for short). Installation is relatively painless: download the installer from the crashplan site, and unpack and execute. I installed mine under /opt/crashplan.

Back in the day I used to have one router in the house: the D-Link DIR-825, flashed with OpenWRT. Configured with two SSIDs – one for internal network use, and one for guest access – the latter being separate from the internal … Continue reading
After the latest lan-party with some friends, where we played a lot of Rocket League, it dawned on me that this game (and numerous others) is probably a lot easier to play with a game controller instead of the mouse/keyboard combination. And as I have the Continue reading
