I found this nice Android app today. Since I am setting up the monitoring of some servers using Nagios this app is very useful to me. The app is called Nagroid and it is completely free and the code is available at Google Code.

I reported some days ago that this page is not being generated dynamically online anymore. It is just static HTML!
I am generating all code offline. But since I love features like “comments”, I decided to use a third party service for that. I registered an account at Disqus because it provides the most simple user interface. I hope you will accept and use this feature even though data is being stored on external servers not managed by me. Maybe I will develop an comment option via a cgi-bin directory in the future but at first I will stay at Disqus…
The server is now running lighttpd. thttpd doesn’t provided enough features. Lighttpd seems to be a good choice for my requirements. It is a very small, fast and easy to configure webserver with a lot of features.

I found this in the ./images directory of hanez.org today and thought it must be online again… ;)

The Arduino and the Netduino are communicating over two digital IO lines. The animation is being synced over these lines. Rafel an I wanted to make the displays run. With success… but what next? Syncing both devices!
Since Rafael is developing on the Netduino platform and I am using the Arduino as platform, we had much fun putting these two devices together and let them talk to each other. This communication is used to keep the animation on both LCD displays in sync. There is a video below but it has a really bad quality. Focus your eyes on the LCD devices when watching it.
More information will follow in the next hours… ;)
I am restructuring this site and the server it is running on at the moment. I moved the site to a new server today. No script languages, database servers etc. anymore! Everything is being generated offline to static HTML since some days!
This website is just a mirror off what I am running on my local system. No backups of the server needed anymore, jehaaa!
The webserver underneath this website is thttpd at the moment but it is just an experiment. I am leaving the era of dynamic webpages so I don’t have any need for software like Apache anymore. thttpd is great but I am missing some features. I will give lighttpd a try in the next days.
The RSS and Atom feed has been moved. Update your readers! Maybe they will come back to the old place later but at the moment I don’t care.. The problem is, that I could not configure thttpd to read index.rss files like reading index.html automatically in a directory context. It is not a big problem but some more features would be great.
I will publish the state of the hanez.org server here and will then explain how and why the final solution looks like it is… ;)
