The other week we picked up an old Dell Poweredge 2850 2u server.
This to feed the urge for a homelab.
In order to start a homelab , the people love network diagram. so i made one of my home situation. which is visable here.
When i bought my new laptop in Januari, i installed ubuntu 14.04 on my old one. This due to the fact that i just love my IBM T61 laptop.
After a few week, i found out that i am working more and more on the T61 that on my new i5 windows machine. This had more reasons. first SSH sessions are way easier from a terminal instead of running a separate application like Putty. and when i just a fast machine to make my nas do something or search stuff on the web and want to have bigger screen then my Z1 experia. The ubuntu machine is quite fast.
So back to Whatpulse, I’ll explain more about whatpulse in a later post. but for a TL;DR; Its stats whoring with your keystrokes and a lot more data…
Installing was a issue due to the large number of packages you need, but the knowledge base on whatpulse.org was pretty straight forward and got it finally working. YAY!
So when we ordered the VPN last tuesday, the prime objective was to have a IRC Bouncer working, so that it can reply the missed messages while my machine was offline.
After looking around, i found a few howto’s that use the ZNC software and eventually used the following article to configure everything.
So yay, happy chatting on Quakenet.org #NijNtje ^^ hows that for oldskool stuff
So today I installed wordpress to keep track of progress and use as placeholder.
The main domain (www.l4urenz.nl) is still redirected towards tumblr. but might find another purpose for this in the near future.
This site is just the little frontpage of the VPS hosted by Fast4you.
Ordered on 16/06/2015 and installed with Ubuntu 14.04
Running 512mb and 75 gb disk space.
Plan: Use as little play around server to broaden my horizon on Ubuntu server usage and to see if there is really a private need for a VPS.
- ZNC irc bouncer installed, not woring yet
- Apache/sql installed, running
