  • 25 September - Bucket-NAS

    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.

    This note shows how to install the Estonian Electronic Identity Software on Debian 9.

  • 16 June - Java at school / Java à l’école

[1]Rabîndranâth Tagore: L’Offrande lyrique. Because I love this life, I will love death as much. I first saw this epitaph on grave near a chapel in Clairfontaine Belgium. The grave has been taken away many years ago but the words remained in my mind.
