#141239 Netflix uses too much bandwidth

Netflix uses too much bandwidth? Bullshit. Bandwidth isn't a limited resource.

#140710 LocomotiveCMS: What the actual hell?

Posted by Mo3 on 28 December 2013 - 01:51 PM

Alright.. nevermind.. I installed "wagon" instead of "locomotivecms_wagon".. "wagon" seems to be an outdated gem and lds.org used to be something else. Hahaha

Anyone ever used it?



#137698 [Backend Guy] Help making a user generator API

If you're still in need, I could code that thing for you in a few minutes using Ruby/Sinatra. Easily deployable to Heroku.

#137252 Anyone using a Raspberry Pi?

Posted by Mo3 on 19 July 2013 - 12:11 PM

If you have some time to kill, you will probably find great ideas here: http://www.reddit.co..._you_use_it_for. If you haven't, take a peek anyway, there's some incredibly impressive stuff done with it. And other VERY questionable, yet still impressive things. [NSFW!!]


I have one myself. It sits downstairs next to the wifi router and informs me about everything I need to know (storm warnings, state of our garage door, parcels that are trackable and scheduled to arrive today, account activity, important emails, my eBay watchlist, etc) using https://play.google....myandroid&hl=de. Basically custom push notifications for Android. 


You can also have it colocated for free: http://www.edis.at/e...ia/raspberrypi/

Pretty cool. I'm gonna compile it now and play with it.

#136924 Video.js+Nginx problems

Posted by Mo3 on 08 July 2013 - 10:14 AM



I'm currently building a neat website that has a background video in it (using video.js and bigvideo.js).


Now, the problem is that I can't seem to get my damn video to play, but other videos work perfectly.


Here's an working example:  





HTTP/1.0 200 OK
Content-Type: video/mp4
Content-Length: 19448241
Connection: keep-alive
Date: Wed, 28 Nov 2012 10:26:52 GMT
Last-Modified: Wed, 19 May 2010 04:26:19 GMT
ETag: "22f0a95f531d7b0e5f4d62111bd96129"
Accept-Ranges: bytes
Server: AmazonS3
Age: 24927
Via: 1.0 9738bd2dfc6066464e99b8ca42142fb8.cloudfront.net (CloudFront)
X-Cache: Hit from cloudfront
X-Amz-Cf-Id: zbaBnc5m5pdYKUgVND5CJ04ZschHm141tIWnCEu2Hdydd7tAFAlMBA==

Here's the one I edited and tried to use (and that won't work): 


HTTP/1.1 200 OK
Server: nginx/1.2.1
Date: Mon, 08 Jul 2013 14:57:00 GMT
Content-Type: video/mp4
Content-Length: 31584586
Last-Modified: Mon, 08 Jul 2013 14:46:07 GMT
Connection: keep-alive
Accept-Ranges: bytes

(Direct requests from cURL - loading the video via Javascript shows a 206 response).


I'm using Nginx on Debian 7 with php-fpm. 


This is what the requests look like in the Dev tools:




What could be the problem?

#136774 Best HTTP server for a simple static site?

Posted by Mo3 on 03 July 2013 - 09:46 AM

Well if you want to roll a little bit more extreme, there's always kHPPDd which runs in your kernel (and is probably already built in!), only serves static sites and redirects all other requests to Apache or Nginx:


I don't think there's anything faster than that.

#136754 I need urgent advice, and I don't really know where else to go..

Posted by Mo3 on 03 July 2013 - 04:34 AM

... I'm hoping for some follow up. As Reddit says: "OP - please deliver!"


Well, there ya go: We now know that my mother's absolutely insane too (something called Sissi syndrome or whatever, an atypical form of psychotic depression). My father is currently planning to defect to Switzerland in 2 weeks without telling anyone because he's had enough of my mother's crap and the whole situation. I'm gonna travel the world starting in November or December (I can work from everywhere anyway), starting off with the Netherlands for approximately 6 months. 


Yes, it sounds insane. I love it.

#136630 DigitalOcean (great EC2 alternative) & self hosted PaaS

Posted by Mo3 on 29 June 2013 - 12:37 PM

Holy crap I just caught this. They can't do backups on a live droplet? So if you turn automatic backups on, it forces a shutdown on your server every time?

Oh god no, I just stupidly assumed that the procedure's the same for both backing up and taking a snapshot. Sorry!

Whao, what website?

Will post it in the Bragspot in a few days. :)

My only gripe with DigitalOcean vs AWS is that you get exactly one network interface and it's public. On AWS, each EC2 node has a public IP and private IP. Private IPs can be used for inter-server communication between boxes within a region, they run across a dedicated 100Gbit line, and you don't pay for transfer. On DO, all network activity goes over public IP so there's more of a need to encrypt server-to-server data (you wouldn't want to access MySQL without SSL, for example), transfer between DO machines within a region count against your bandwidth allotment, and the network isn't dedicated so it's a bit slower (oversold or not).

Yep, that's a valid point you make there. I don't host bigger sites on DO though, just a few low- to medium-key sites and internal applications like Redmine or Postfix - in that case DO comes in a LOT cheaper and easier than AWS, for example.

Edit: @Mo, signed up with your referral just in case :)

Awesome, thanks!

Damn you.. I was JUST working on the exact same thing. No kidding.

#136496 DigitalOcean (great EC2 alternative) & self hosted PaaS

Posted by Mo3 on 23 June 2013 - 06:24 AM

I have two recommendations to make smile.gif

First, Digitalocean. Great alternative to EC2, you can spin up instances within seconds, their control panel is freaking AWESOME (very, very clean and intuitive) and the pricing is great, too.

Then there's Cloud66. It's a PaaS that lets you manage and deploy your Rails apps just like, for example, Heroku does - but on your own servers or cloud instances. Seamless integration with EC2, Digitalocean, Linode, Rackspace..

I use both for my soon-to-lift-off company. Maybe you'll find them useful too smile.gif

#136125 Electronic Music, anyone?

Posted by Mo3 on 03 June 2013 - 02:33 AM

Anyone know The XX? :) I've been listening to them constantly for the last weeks. So relaxing. So happy.

OH and I know the chance is slim, but will anyone attend the Pukkelpop festival? I'll be visiting Amsterdam with my girlfriend and go to Pukkelpop afterwards. A lot of great artists there, Eminem, The Prodigy, The XX (hehe), DJ Fresh, Killswitch Engage, Paul Kalkbrenner..
