Brief Update for 2016-05-112016-05-11
I haven’t been too active here or on my daily coding project1. So
what’s been going on?
Honestly, not too much. A lot of Dark Souls. I mean watching VaatiVidya2 and EpicNameBro3 while also playing through Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition4 and Dark Souls II: Scholar of the First Sin5. I love that series so much. I’m not very good at it and I don’t like everything that the games do or that the community is interested in; but overwhelmingly I am completely entranced by it.
Besides videogaming and family business, I’ve been doing a little bit of software tinkering. However, this tinkering is a lot less on the programming side of things and much moreso on the configuration and setup side of things. I’ll document these things more in the near future. Here’s a quick summary of what I’ve been playing with:
- Mumble Raspberry Pi Server - SSD Nodes VPS for my domain name and to forward network traffic to my home servers - X-less Arch installation on my Dell Mini 10 (ie., console-only)
And some things I’ll be playing with soon:
- Much more console-land exploration on Arch - Sabotage and/or Tiny Core Linux exploration - Linux From Scratch study - More electronics (when I get my AliExpress shipments) - More home servers - Linux Kernel programming study - Linix Framebuffer programming study - Rust language study
And more family time, more workout time and more Dark Souls. :-) I plan to write on all of this stuff and I think having my new setup on the Dell Mini will help achieve this goal.
