So I’ve been looking for a list of emojis and their text counterparts for google hangouts. This seems like a fairly easy thing for them to publish, right?
Remember the Milk Syntax
So, like any modern person on the internet today, we all have our own workflows. Our own ways of staying on top of our responsibilities. One of the key aspects of this, at least for me, is a solid application for notes and reminders. I’ve spent a lot of time searching around and trying out different solutions. The one I’ve settled on, for now, is called Remember the Milk.
This is just a copy of my ‘to-do list’ for the RetroPie Raspberry Pi project.
Raspberry Pi Speedtest
# Pi Wi-Fi Speed Test Okay guys, so I have been collecting Raspberry Pi’s here at my home like crazy. I guess I just keep coming up with new projects to do, and the Pi is perfect for the types of things I’m trying to do!

Lynis - Linux Server Auditing
So you’ve got your system up and running the way you like it, but your wondering what else can I do to harden my server?
So an FTP server is often one of the first things people want to setup on a new server. I recently setup two, one on my Raspberry Pi for making a 2TB USB Drive available in my home, and another somewhat more secure one on my VPS to transfer files back and forth. So anyway, lets just right in.
These are called shell operators and yes, there are more of them. I will give a brief overview of the most common among the two major classes, control operators and redirection operators.
Here’s a great little program to keep an eye on your system files to make sure no one inappropriate is changing them! I like to have this run in cron once a week and send me a report. When your first changing your system / installing things, a lot of false positives will be tripped.
