Creating a Local LAN with Zerotier

Matthew 0 Comments

I have been meaning to create a video about this for some time.  I am a tech fanatic, and when a better solution than Hamachi crossed my path, I was instantly indulging myself with its vast capabilities.  Zerotier is an amazing application.  It can be used to create a Local LAN so that gamers can play legacy titles like Warcraft III and the like, but it can also be “privatized” giving you full control over who has access to your network.  I have tested it on Windows and Linux, and use several personally created networks to play games with my friends back in Ontario, as well as administer my web servers, and lock down SSH to use only the internal network.…

The wonderful world of IFTTT (IF This, Then That)

A little while back, I noticed that Instagram stopped supporting its ability to post to Flickr… at least I think it did.  I mean a lot of my pics from Instagram can be found on Flickr… But in any case, at this time there is no link between the two. And as I use Instagram whenever I don’t have my real camera at hand (I love the filters), and my website has a Flickr stream, I started to look for a way to connect them.

Now be forewarned, what I am about to present is a tool that can connect all your counts to each other, so be warned that you will have to yet again provide your credentials to a third party site. …

The Wonderful World of Linux

Its been a while since I made a post to my blog. I really should keep up with it. So in an attempt to do so, I decided to write about what I am currently engulfed in: The Wonderful World of Linux. In my life time I have used all major operating systems. In my younger years, before college, I was raised on Mac, up to OS 9… I never got into OS X as by the time it was released, I had already switched over to Windows. Throughout College I mainly worked on Windows and started to dabble in Linux, mind you back then they didn’t have the amount of flavours you have today.…

My favourite Local Ottawa Artist is about to release her second CD, which is also her first Solo CD.

As many of you know I have followed Danielle’s career for years, and have posted a few articles about her earlier work with the band Go Long (!) which has since been disbanded.  I started following Dani several years before when she played with another local group called Far From The Trees, and I fell in love with her soothing voice and eclectic style.

In the years since I have seen her music career soar,  she is one of the most talented local singers I have ever met, and even though I moved to Montreal, I have kept in touch with her and followed her career from afar.…

PCG – PHP Code Generator for CodeIgniter

Matthew 0 Comments

If you are like me, you hate coding the basics, the add, delete, modify, view commands that are the basis of all applications, also known as CRUD (create, read, update and delete).  It’s the first thing you do when creating an application, then you create your custom views, and forms.  For me, its a keystone step in creating any application, and I hate it.

In walks PCG, the PHP Code Generator, which is CodeIgniter based.  I have been using CodeIgniter for over a year now because I find it quite simple to use. PCG takes the simplicity one step further by allowing you to create the CRUD portion of you script in 5 easy steps:

Step 1: Settings

pcg1
Simply Name your project (Website Title)
Give the URL (Must be a fully qualified domain name, IPs don’t work, I tried)
Supply your admin login and password

Step 2: Design

pcg2
This is where you get to create your modules, it creates all the pages you need to complete the CRUM for each module.…
