This is my miniblog, I will post random stuff here

Since a few day ago I finally got a RPI 3. I've been
busy configuring the new RPI and installing my headless
server while hoping the SD card wouldn't corrupt. Now I
am finally done, and if the SD ever gets corrupt again I
can write the last SD image to my sd and restart my RPI.
This way I can be within 15 minutes back online. :)

The mysql server used around 233mb of ram which is a
bit too much for my like. Now I migrated all SQL
databases to an external server which is great. at
least I dont have to export a daily SQL backup 
anymore, but only the home dirs and www dirs.

The weather api was broken because Yahoo decided to use
a new api mechanism with OAuth. I could not be bothered
by creating a Yahoo account so I just searched for a 
new weather API on the net. Now I use the API provided 
by http://forecast.io/ :)

This week the new Raspberry version 3 came out. I like
the neat little machine but I think I will skip the RPI3
and go for the ODroid-C2 instead. I like the C2 better
because its sports an 64 bit cpu and it does have 2GB of
ram, EMMC and no shared lan/usb. But the best thing is
that it can run Android so I can test my created apps 
also on my TV. :)

Oh nooooo, because of a power shortage my RPI got
corrupted again. Oh well, within 15 minutes it's up and
running again. I am happy that I have 1TB storage on
Stack, this is where I do all backups. I mounted the
cloud storage with webdav and just use it as any other
HD. Sometimes its a bit laggy but it's not much of a
deal because I can also run programs from it :) I also
backed the 'UP' kickstarter project. The UP is also a 
SBC but with an Quad core Atom X5-8300 and 2GB ram with
EMMC. I actually backed this one because the CPU is
64BIT and have 1GB ethernet.

After my other RPI got corrupted a few times I ordered
a RPI 2 and I migrated everything to the new Raspberry.
The cause of the corruption was probably my old Samsung
charger that gave 0.7A 5V. Right now the RPI is powered
by a 2A 5V charger. I also mounted /var/log and the /tmp
directory in tmpfs to minimize sd card writes. On the
other RPI I copied the / filesystem to USB storage but 
this time I will keep it on the microSD :)

Added Snippets page, you can find it in the menu above.
I also don't have to work anymore for the rest of the
year.. Party on!

Tomorrow is my last day of work for the rest of the
year! I probably start resuming my Android development
again. Last time I coded I ported some projects from
Eclipse to Android Studio. I also have a site with more
info about my apps @ http://android.maymar.nl/

Added random messages in the header. Still need to add
a lot more different ones. Just refresh a couple of
times to see some of the random messages. The site font
was changed to 'Ubuntu Mono'. Also validated HTML5+CSS3

4 days of work to go till I have a small holiday till
New Year! I also updated the site and put the pre block
inside a div while aligning it to the left. It looks
like its working now. :)

Did some more work on this site. Soon I will make this
site responsive and center the main content in the 
browser. I checked a movie on Youtube about the cool
Bitcraze Crazy Flie 2.0 and it really looks great. It's
a programmable drone with GPIO which can be programmed 
with Python for example.

Worked on the Raspberry site. Created the first few php
pages and randomized the logo color. Almost the whole
site is written in Nano. I use JuiceSSH on my Android
to connect to my RPI. You can find the SSH client at 
the Google Play Store. It's past 04:00 at night so I'm 
going to fetch some sleep. :) Cya!
