Love Services that KISS!

         · ·

One of these days… When I find the time or more importantly find the idea of creating a super simple creative service that is not only useful for developers but maybe useful for the masses! Of course my plan would be to open source it as this is the only logical way of constructively writing software… An example of a simple creative service would be something like https://maildrop.cc which is something EVERYONE could use and would use if they only knew about it!


A Personal Calendar, Finally!

     

Personal Calendar So this is my first article written using Forestry.io default front matter editor feature, so excuse me if it’s all f’d up! Anyway, not only am I utterly and completely stoked with my newly launched Data Storage Platform - File Server / Project tasking (Kanban) / Bookmarks / Password Vault / CalDav Calendar / Contacts. Not only has this platform allowed me to drop at least 4-5 paid services I was subscribed to, but all my shit is fully encrypted!

Estimote LTE Beacon It’s a small, wireless beacon that can compute both its precise indoor and outdoor position. It can talk directly to the cloud and last multiple years on a battery. Estimote LTE Beacons are designed primarily to seamlessly locate assets and vehicles when they move between indoor and outdoor environments. Their secure firmware/cloud software is crafted to provide true “proof of location” and “proof of delivery.”


Installing Vim8 with lua-interp Feature

     

Compilation Circa 91’ Bonanza Alright now, I know I’ve dealt with this a couple times if not more, and by “this” I mean having a Vim8 install without the Lua interpreter feature! And it’s fuckin ridiculous that I’m having to compile a 25+ yr. old text editor from source to get auto-complete to function properly. Hence why I am such a flamboyant Sublime Text Editor cheerleader! However, not getting into that debate at the moment (don’t wanna kick you while you’re down), I’d rather focus more on a solution such that one could carry on with his/her tasks, whether it be on a server (in my case), container, or workstation.


Linux Utils Quick Reference Guides

     

Linux Filesystem Octal Formats Ok, I’m mostly doing this for my own references, because even after all these years of working purely on Unix based systems (mostly Darwin) I tend to forget the exact options I need. In the case of this first one, it’s not like I ever memorized every octal code besides maybe 755 and 644 for web server files. You pretty much never want to set the permission of a file to 777, perhaps only in rare cases and I mean super rare!
