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.…

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. …

Ansible: reboot and wait for response

With my new job title of Linux System Administrator (more correctly “Administrateur Systèmes Linux“), there are some new things I have had to learn. One is the wonderful world of Ansible.

Thank you to gvenka008c and andyhky who’s answers were what i needed to piece together the correct metod.…

If you asked me 5 years ago what my 5 Year plan was… I would never have guessed I would have gotten this far.

I moved to Quebec on January 1st, 2012, with the hope of starting anew. After 32+ years living in Ontario, I took the bold leap to leave my Province and start a new exciting chapter in my life. But it doesn’t start there. It all started in 1999 when my best friend Eric handed me my first copy of Linux… Corel Linux. It was at this point, just before I started College, that I knew what I wanted to do.…

That nostalgic feeling… How things have changed….

In my parent’s generation, the advent of the TV was the big hit, and maybe a phone in every home (or at least your own line instead of a party line). Our generation, well those born in the late 70’s and 80’s (I’m a 79er personally) we have seen a lot of development in the area of technology… Going from CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) TVs to Flat Screen LCD/LED TVs, having a computer in every home, and some small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, and of course, cell phone technology, going from the brick (My father had one) to smaller cell phones to the advent of the smartphone.…
