Raspberry Pi Wireless host

[post to come eventually]



  • Custom hostapd doesn't seem to install as on-boot service correctly, had to force installation
    # update-rc.d hostapd enable
    update-rc.d: using dependency based boot sequencing
    update-rc.d: error: no runlevel symlinks to modify, aborting!
    # insserv -v -r hostapd
    # insserv -v -d hostapd
  • RTL8188 or my device or whatever doesn't support multiple bssids. So sad.
  • Next step: openvpn routing link to main smrshnet

Ducks and databases

Thing I learned today:
Duck typing is a cute name for the very powerful (and lazy) object typing method of not caring what you're handed and running your code on it anyway.

First pull request on someone else's project on github.

Because it's good for you.


That is all.

Edit: I have been using Ubuntu almost exclusively since starting my new job, 2 months ago. I love it. It definitely requires a little bit more comfort with the way computers work than a cotton-candy operating system such as Windows or OSX. However, once you get over the intimidation of a black terminal (and practice a little with vimtutor) it's really a very nice operating system for the up-and-coming technical elite. I'm sure once I get more comfortable with it, I may find that I enjoy some of the more "Hard Core" Linux flavors, as I believe Ubuntu is considered "cotton-candy" in the Linux world. However, for someone who is just getting their feet wet in the Dark Side Hot Tub, I'm quite pleased.
