Bucket-NAS: Set up an encrypted NAS on Odroid-C2 or Rasbperry 3 with OpenMediaVault (OVM)

This note explains how to set up a cheap Raid 1 NAS with an Odroid or Rasbperry board and two USB-harddisks using OpenMediaVault.
Only very cheap and largely available hardware components are used. When very high availability is required it is recommended to hold available a second Oroid/Rasbperry board with a mirrored SD-card containing the NAS operating system. In this way the system has no single point of failure.

Contrairement à d’autres méthodes didactiques les exercices introduisent directement les bases de la programmation orientée objet en respectant le concept de programmation "Architecture Modèle/Vue/Contrôleur".

Note taking with Pandoc

Markup languages like Markdown, ReStructuredText, textile, txt2tags or mediawiki are perfectly suited for fast note taking. Type your notes with your favorite editor, chose your favorite markup language 1 and view them with Chromium, Chrome or Firefox 2.

All you need is the pandoc-note script, the Pandoc format converter, an editor of your choice and Chromium, Chrome or Firefox as live previewer. If not available, pandoc-note also works without pandoc.
