Installing subversion on a DroboFS

DroboFSBefore I had my DroboFS I was using my local MSI Wind Desktop for my subversion repositories, but after some reading I found that you could install subversion on the DroboFS. The idea of having all of my repos on the DroboFS seems to be a great idea, after all its redundant while my server is not.
The README that comes with the subversion install for the DroboFS lacks a lot of detail for getting it up and running properly. I thought I detail my install process to hopefully help others get it up and running with little to no troubles. [Read more...]

Disable .DS_Store on network mapped drives

I always seem to misplace this little piece of code, so I thought I would make my own post on it.  Prevents those pesky .DS_Store files that OS X creates. Just run it from the OS X Terminal and you are all set.

Backing up music from 2 laptops dilemma

Up until now I have been using an rsync script to backup my iTunes library to my server.  This has been a great solution for backing up my single laptop, but the tides have changed and Kat is starting to add a lot more music these days to her iTunes.  That being said I really want to end up having a central location to backup all of our music while weeding out the dupes.
With out much thought my first idea was to setup the same rsync script on her laptop as I used on mine …. but that [Read more...]

TransNotifo

I use Transmission to download torrents on my headless Linux box.  I was tired of always having to remote into the machine via FreeNX, SSH or web interface to see if downloads had completed. I have been using Notifo for sometime to monitor the lighting on my snakes aquarium and decided that this would be a good use of Notifo once again.  So after a bit of research I came across a bash script example that allowed Transmission to log to a file upon completion of downloads. I then came across a script that would let you send alerts to Notifo from the command line …. So I combined them and was left with the following. [Read more...]

Auto reconnect to Screen session

I came across this bit of info which makes life easier. Just add this to your .bash_profile and when you SSH to the server it will auto attach to your screen session if you have one running.
