Welcome pfSense and so long and thanks for all the fish IPCop!

After 10 years of great service I just upgraded our SOHO firewall from IPCop to pfSense. IPCop was a great servant for many years but pfSense is now the undisputed leader in Open Source Firewalling. pfSense now has a much more active community and is more feature rich. Best part is it still runs great on our old Pentium3 with 512MB RAM. Things sure have come a long way since running the firewall on an old 486 with LRP (Linux Router Project) booting off a floppy!

tmux - Great replacement for screen detachable terminal multiplexer
Posted by Paul Rimmer / Saturday, June 22, 2013 (15:43:32) / (324 reads) Programming

tmux is a great replacement for the venerable terminal multiplexer screen. These tools are a must for remote development in that if your session gets closed, accidentally or intentionally detached, you can simply reattach and carry on from where you left off. Applications keep running while you are detached so nothing is lost. Good video of screen vs tmux face-off here.

OBi100 + + Google Voice = Cheap Phone Bill in North America!
Posted by Paul Rimmer / Tuesday, May 28, 2013 (01:29:03) / (329 reads) Technology

For dollars a month you can have unlimited North American calling with e911 and tons of features. You use your internet connection as access to VOIP services. In my case I went with due to their good reputation and Google Voice for free outgoing calls in North America. If Google ever starts charging, it's incredibly cheap to use for outgoing as well. I picked up an OBi100 ATA (Analog Telephone Adapter) for $30 on Amazon and I was off to the races. I plan to switch my old line number over to this soon, which is free with anveo if you pay a year in advance. That's probably 1 current phone bill+taxes. Check below for some useful links.

Switched from Hudson to Jenkins Continuous Improvement Build System
Posted by Paul Rimmer / Wednesday, August 03, 2011 (21:58:13) / (1304 reads) Programming

Since Jenkins appears to have superseded Hudson and most if not all new bug fixes and functionality seem to be on Jenkins I've migrated to the Jenkins project. They've both proven to be invaluable in catching bad check-ins on the day they are checked in vs. the day a major release is required as Murphy's rule would dictate. Highly recommended and compatible with numerous verison control and build systems.

Automating The Espresso Machine
Posted by Paul Rimmer / Sunday, August 22, 2010 (17:42:15) / (3051 reads) Technology

Yesterday I hooked up an external X10 universal module (managed by Homeseer) to control our La Spaziale Mini Vivaldi II espresso machine. Now we don't have to go downstairs every morning to turn the machine on. On weekdays the unit now comes on at 5am and off at 7am, and on weekends its on at 5am and off at 3pm for our morning and afternoon shots. Great little mod!
