HomelabOS v0.7 - Release Notes and Installation Video

2020-05-18 Code
Today we released v0.7 of HomelabOS! HomelabOS is an effort to make it as easy as possible for anyone to host their own cloud-style services, either at home, or on a server they control in the cloud. The goal is to provide a few simple commands to the user, and handle setting everything up for them as easily as possible.

Connecting a Grandstream HT80X (HT801 or HT802) to Twilio

2020-01-28 Tutorials
I recently had to connect a Grandstream HT802. It’s a small device that can give you an analog phone port when all you have available is ethernet ports which are connected to the internet. It is certainly not plug and play, and is clearly intended for use in a more enterprise setting. It’s what we had, and we needed it to work, so I got busy researching how to do it. Continue reading

Introducing tckr.html - A simple calculator strip. Like ticker tape, with variables.

2020-01-28 Code
I’ve been wanting a tool lately where it functions kind of like a blank text document, but when you type some math it actually evaluates the formula for you, letting you save the output for use in further equations. So, last night I built it over the course of maybe two hours. It’s simple. It does what it says on the box. It’s portable (just one .html file). It’s easy. Continue reading

tor_ssh.sh - One command to enable SSH access via Tor to any Ubuntu server.

2019-03-01 Code
At Grownetics we install onsite servers at our clients’ facilities so they can continue to use the system, even if their internet goes out. These servers have fail over connections, and may change connection at any time, and due to the onsite nature of things, we may not be able to have ports forwarded or expect there to be a static IP. In these cases a VPN is a nice thing to have, and we use Tinc for this. Continue reading

Simplest Journal Solution

2019-01-29 Code
This is my simple journal solution. Put the code belowe in your ~/.zshrc or ~/.bashrc Type a j from a terminal, type some notes, save and exit. The script creates a file in the format of ~/journal/2019/01-29.md and automatically pushes it to git. EDITOR=vim journal() { mkdir -p ~/journal/`date +%Y` $EDITOR ~/journal/`date +%Y`/`date +%m-%d.md` (cd ~/journal/; git pull; git add *; git commit -a -m "Update `date +%Y-%m-%d`"; git push) } alias j=journal Easy, simple, effective.
