Pi-Hole with DNS-Over-HTTPS via Cloudflare

RaspberryPi LogoI was using Pi-Hole on my local network for some time on a VirtualBox VM that I had set up but recently removed it from my network as it was acting up and causing another possible fail point on my network that I just didn’t feel like troubleshooting at the time.

However with the release of the new CloudFlare 1.1.1.1 DNS, I thought I would revisit my Pi-Hole setup, this time actually running it on one of the many RaspberryPi’s that I have sitting around collecting dust.

Wyze IP Camera

Its been a while since I had an IP camera setup, but recently came across the Wyze IP Camera which is only $20 …. The price was kind of a deterrent at first until I looked at all of the features packed into this small/affordable IP camera.

Install ddclient on OS X

DynDNS LogoThe DynDNS OS X client has always seemed a bit clunky to me and outdated so I was looking for another way to use DynDNS with out that client. Thinking back I remembered that I used ddclient on one of my linux boxes from the command line a long while ago so I started looking into how I could implement that on my Macbook Air. I saw that Homebrew had a ddclient package so I got to work.

Installing HipHop Virtual Machine

HipHop Virtual Machine

I recently read an article about how you can install HipHp Virtual Machine (HHVM) for a 2x+ speed boost on your site.  The newest version of WordPress works 100% with HHVM, but unfortunately some of the plugins out there don’t. I decided the pros out weighed the cons and decided to install HHVM on my development server.  Outlined below are the steps for installing it on your own.

wget -O - http://dl.hhvm.com/conf/hhvm.gpg.key | sudo apt-key add -
echo deb http://dl.hhvm.com/ubuntu saucy main | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/hhvm.list
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install hhvm
sudo /usr/share/hhvm/install_fastcgi.sh
sudo update-rc.d hhvm defaults
sudo /etc/init.d/hhvm restart
sudo /usr/bin/update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/php php /usr/bin/hhvm 60
