Install brew. Follow instructions on https://brew.sh/ Install virtualbox # brew install virtualbox Install docker-machine # brew install docker-machine # brew services start docker-machine If you want the machine to run at boot (rather than at login) Move your launchd configuration file homebrew.mxcl.docker-machine.plist from $USER/Library/LaunchAgents to /Library/LaunchDaemons Add a user directive: <key>UserName</key> <string>robcos</string> Make sure the permissions are right: # sudo chmod root.wheel homebrew.mxcl.docker-machine.plist Install docker # brew install docker Create a virtual machine # docker-machine create --driver=virtualbox default Setup docker environment (you will need this every time you open a new shell) # eval $(docker-machine env default) Setup your “default” virtualbox to forward any relevant port. Settings -> Network -> Adapter 1 -> Nat -> Advanced In my case I forward 1880 for NodeRed, 8123 for HomeAssistant and 8080 for
I'm jetlagged so what do I do? I install Box Backup on my NetGear ReadyNas NV+. A while ago I have in fact built my own little datacenter in my loft. There I store all my music and most importantly the backup for all the pictures that I take. It is a raid 5 so if one of the disks breaks down, I can still recover 100% of the data. But what happens if it gets stolen or something really bad happens? I will loose everything so I need to have another backup copy of my data somewhere else. Meet www.boxbackup.org : The backup daemon, bbackupd , runs on all machines to be backed up. The store server daemon, bbstored runs on a central server. Data is sent to the store server, which stores all data on local filesystems, that is, only on local hard drives. Tape or other archive media is not used. The ReadyNas NV+ has a Sparc CPU and at the moment there are no official builds for this platform so I had to build it myself. It took a while to find the right setup so let me shar
I have almost filled my yellow book with vaccinations. You get it when you contact NHS and make an appointment with your closest travel clinic. I went to my usual surgery Sterndale in Hammersmith. The nurse recommended to get Hepatitis A and B, Typhoid, Rabies and the compulsory Yellow Fever. Some of them require more than one shot so make sure to start your treatment at least 3 weeks before you leave. I am also going to get an anti malaria treatment but for that I need another appointment. The injection are almost harmless so don't be scared. Be scared of the bill though as some of those vaccines are not free and cost up to 40£ per short. And yes, you can also use private clinics as Nomad (STA Travel) but it will cost you more.
