I have been looking for some time to get notifications from my Evo 3D to my PC because i have a bad habbit of leaving it in the lounge room or office when i get busy around the house or leaving it on silent so it doesenteven viberate when i get home from tafe, This App nullifies my noob in these situations because after yu have setup some basic stuff it will notify you about Phone Calls, TxT Messages, even battery state.
The setup is Incredibly Simple and as easy as pointing and clicking for the most part it even supports encrypting the notifications if you were using it on a public network.
Things i Have Tested and Work:
Wifi Broadcasting (Great for reciving notifications on more that one PC within a network)
Dbus Notification Support with the Naughty Library in Awesome (Needs a bit of tweaking)
And So far im super impressed with the functionallity and stability of the application and its PC Clients and is S.A.N.E Notification Method.
I rate this app a Perfect 10/10 for simplicity tonns of options and fantastic usability i highly recommend giving this app a shot :D
So, I've just finished up setting up this brand new blog. Before I've always run a WordPress blog, but since WordPress is kind of over-kill with all it features that I don't need, I've decided to try something new, so this time I am running a static blog with Jekyll.
Jekyll is a simple, blog aware, static site generator. It takes a template directory (representing the raw form of a website), runs it through Textile or Markdown and Liquid converters, and spits out a complete, static website suitable for serving with Apache or your favorite web server. This is also the engine behind GitHub Pages, which you can use to host your project’s page or blog right here from GitHub.
So after I started using jekyll, I don't need any database server, because everything is stored in static files. It also means I can use whatever editor I want to use (nano or vim) to write my blog posts in markdown.
So if I want to publish a new post, I simply do:
rake post title="Super awesome post"
That will generate a new markdown file, which I then just edit with my desired editor and then do:
git add .
git commit -m "Added new content"
git push origin master
The actual git server is github but this is optional you can use any git server you like or use RSYNC or FTP or even SCP the options are virtually limitless. My Blog Repo
With a Cronjob to automagicly pull the repo from github every 5 minutes (the time limit is purely optional i set 5 minutes for testing purposes)
*/5 * * * * cd /srv/www/setkeh/ && git pull
And that will push my new post over to my server and it will be live on the internet.
I love this solution, it's so simple and it super lightweight, since all the web server will need do is just serving some static files, and not generating dynamic content in some scripting language and fetching content from a database server, like it would do if I used something like WordPress.
If you want make your own blog like this, make sure to checkout Jekyll and Jekyll-Bootstap as well as my examples setkeh-blog.
Some Really big changes coming soon now that everything seems to be working so please take the chance to check back soon :)
