Whatpulse on Ubuntu, Part 1

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!

ZNC bouncer for IRC

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.
