    Resolutions 2015

    2014 has seen allot of changes in this site. NxFIFTEEN has always been my personal site where I could write more freely about the this that interest me, even thought that usually revolves around: Linux, technology and health. I love to write, I may not be great at it and my spelling leaves allot to be desired, but love doing it. I know few people will ever read what I write I like to believe my tu Read More...

    Content Api

    Since I started use Hexo for my site allot of things have been easier. Like creating an API to access the site contents. It was a nightmare for me in Drupal 7 and in the end I gave up long ago but thanks to the work of John Wu and his plugin hexo-generator-api generating a REST-ful JSON API with read-only access to all the sites contents has been the the simplest things I've worked on so far.

    Agedu: Clean Up Wasted Space in Linux

    After using a computer for long enough we will all eventually run out of hard drive space, it really is just a fact of modern computing. The big question is what do you do next?

    Overclocking Raspberry Pi

    As your can see for yourself I've rebuilt the site, again. I've code named this new iteration Alpe d'Huez, but it's really version 8. So NxFIFTEEN Alpe d'Huez, what's the point? I've washed my hands of CMS installations. I started blogging almost from day one and used WordPress 1.0 then at some point switched to Drupal 5. The thing is, this site is so parse on content t Read More...

    Scheduled Server Downtime June Fri 18th...

    Preamble Regular users of NxFifteen will be aware I tend to give little or no warning about service downtime. In most cases this is because the setup I use is working the way it should and needs no messing with, but things go wrong and I scrabble to get everything back up and running. This time is different. On Friday the 18th of July i am predicting an extended service outage. At the moment I can Read More...
