LEGO on my Laptop: A Neat Way to Organize Peripherals

I was recently inspired by a reddit post where they used LEGO on the back of a Surface Pro 3 to help organize their peripherals while on the go. Since my primary machine is now a laptop and I am near a LEGO store I figured I would give it a shot. I used a green baseplate and whatever flat brick material I could find and created this monster:

Raspberry Pi 2 + rTorrent/ruTorrent + NGINX/PHP-FPM = Awesome

Every time I go to rebuild a home server of any type I always forget which guides I used in the past and what steps I had to take to get any software running. Now most of what I need is easy to setup but some things take a few more steps. One guide I am always looking for is a mostly from scratch install of rTorrent with ruTorrent on NGINX with PHP-FPM. Since I never seem to find one that meets my specific case I decided it was time for me to write the guide I needed.

In this guide I will be building on top of a base install of ArchLinux ARM on a Raspberry Pi 2. If you have any questions about the steps below, please feel free to comment!

humans.txt

I am sure I am about 4 years behind the curve on this one, but I recently came across the neat concept of ‘humans.txt’. The basics of the concept is a extra file which is not intrusive to the code or experience of the site. It is located at the root, just like the much used ‘robots.txt’, but lists the authorship, how to contact them, where to look for their work, thanks to those who helped, and even the technologies used to build the site.

Using the standard found on the humans.txt site I have built my own file and placed it on the few sites I have written. You can see the current content of the file below, or see if it updated here.

Outings in New York City: The Fourth

So, I just realized it has been over a month since my last post but it never seems like that much time has past every time I think about it. I figured another few shots from our time outside the apartment might be in order, so here we go with a few pictures from The Rambling, a single section from Central Park. These were taken a few weeks ago and feature an amazing little rock climbing dog we met as well as a few good shots of the nature to be found in Central park.

Also, be on the look-out for a new post coming up from our visit to Arthur Ashe Stadium during the US Open. As always, feel free to share this post or comment to let me know what you think and you can email me if you would like to have a large copy of these images.

Outings in New York City: The Third

Sometimes you take a picture which you just absolutley love, and this is one of them for me. Though I can’t take all the credit for it as Haley had to tell me to re-take it from this particular angle. The best part of this image is that it was just the beginning of our day! For the third installment of Outings in New York City we have the Egypt installment at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I think I have a couple of good shots in the bunch, but let me know what you think by sharing this post or commenting and as usual you can email me if you would like a larger copy of any of the images. Starting this out with my favorite, a shot from the 23rd Street subway platform on the way to the MET:
