I have been having constant issues getting MPD going through the local alsa daemon and went on a search for an alternative, I have a setup with a 2 watt FM transmitter that transmits through out the house. I love the effect of being able to listen to the same song synchronised through the house.
Groovebasin is a web based music player with a built in MPD daemon, it also has automatic volume levelling, streaming support, file system monitoring as well as Last.fm scrobbling.
Instructions for installation is on the github page.
X Server on both Server and Client
SSH must be configured for X11 Forwarding, make sure that the directive below is set in /etc/ssh/ssh_config.
Remotely Displaying an Ubuntu Application
|ssh -X user@hostname|
To display the application on the client just run it from the command prompt.
For a faster connection you could run in trusted mode
|ssh -Y user@hostname|
With slower links you can also enable compression
|ssh -X -C user@hostname|
Ajenti will not run on Ubuntu Server 14.10 without some tweaks.
Some packages are missing that would prevent you from getting to Ajenti via https://localhost:8000/
So , here is how to install Ajenti on Ubuntu Server 14.10!
Quick automatic install
wget -O- https://raw.github.com/Eugeny/ajenti/master/scripts/install-ubuntu.sh | sudo sh
sudo apt-get install python-dev
sudo apt-get install python-setuptools
sudo easy_install -U gevent
If the Ubuntu Server installer has set your server to use DHCP, you will want to change it to a static IP address so that people can actually use it.
Changing this setting without a GUI will require some text editing, but that’s classic linux, right?
Let’s open up the /etc/network/interfaces file. I’m going to use vi, but you can choose a different editor
sudo vi /etc/network/interfaces
For the primary interface, which is usually eth0, you will see these lines:
iface eth0 inet dhcp
As you can see, it’s using DHCP right now. We are going to change dhcp to static, and then there are a number of options that should be added below it. Obviously you’d customize this to your network.
iface eth0 inet static
Now we’ll need to add in the DNS settings by editing the resolv.conf file:
sudo vi /etc/resolv.conf
On the line ‘name server xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx’ replace the x with the IP of your name server. (You can do ifconfig /all to find out what they are)
You need to also remove the dhcp client for this to stick (thanks to Peter for noticing). You might need to remove dhcp-client3 instead.
sudo apt-get remove dhcp-client
Now we’ll just need to restart the networking components:
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
Ping www.google.com. If you get a response, name resolution is working(unless of course if google is in your hosts file).
Really pretty simple.
In this article I will show you how I installed Plex Media Server on Ubuntu Server 14.10.
There are no nice packages on any Ubuntu repo, so we will need to get the deb file from Plex's website.
|$ sudo apt-get install gdebi
$ wget https://downloads.plex.tv/plex-media-server/0.9.11.1.678-c48ffd2/plexmediaserver_0.9.11.1.678-c48ffd2_amd64.deb
$ sudo gdebi plexmediaserver_0.9.11.1.678-c48ffd2_amd64.deb
To remove Plex Server
|$ sudo apt-get remove plexmediaserver|
Once you have installed Plex Media Server, you can access it remotely via the web frontend http://<yourservername>:32400/web/manage

I have had a hard time trying to find Australian vaping suppliers and have compiled a list to make it easier for myself.
The first e-juice supplier that I have used and came highly recommended by a friend of mine that has been vaping for a while. He swears by them and has stated that before vapour eyes, he only used US e-juice suppliers.
Having used them, I can attest to the quality of their e-juices. I have tried their Watermelon Crush and Beesting so far. Though the Watermelon Crush is nice, the Beesting is devine.
I have yet to try the Roasted Strawberries and the Apple Candies that I have bought in the same shipment.
Delivery was stunningly quick, with a personal hand written note on the invoice as well as an unexpected free 7.5ml doubler sample. One of the best quality service that I have gotten anywhere from any online retailer.

I have been asked this on a number of occasions, what is vaping? What on earth is that?
Vaping is the process of inhaling flavoured vapour, generally with nicotine. For the most part it is medical grade propylene glycol as well as vegetable glycerine with the addition of food flavourings to give it, well flavor.
For the most part it is used by used by current adult smokers with the intention of reducing or eliminating their cigarette intake. Due to the possible introduction of nicotine, this has been quite effective for some smokers in eliminating traditional cigarettes. There is also a trend of non smokers vaping without nicotine for the pleasure of it. At this point, there are no known adverse health effects to vaping, the positives are, the reduction in the intake of the 4000 off harmful chemicals in traditional cigarettes.
The subject in Australia is pretty controversial especially in Western Australia where I am from, where the sale of Vaping implements as well as consumables have been effectively banned by a High Court ruling.
This is due to a warped interpretation of a law banning the sale of "cigarette like devices", in saying that, personal importation of vaping equipment as well as consumables are perfectly legal.
Due to the relative unknown nature of vaping in Australia, there are still societal prejudices to vaping purely due to the fact that people associate vaping with cigarette smoking. I, in the short time I have been vaping, have been given dirty looks as well as been asked to leave premises for vaping. This is despite there being no laws against vaping indoors in the state of Western Australia.
I have added a few resources about vaping below:
Is a repository of information about vaping, retailers, calculators as well as my personal opinion about the subject.
You will also find my personal opinion of retailers I have purchased from as well as reviews of my purchases.
