Ramblings of an IT geek

Butterflies

Beautiful, aren’t they?  Never really thought about it?  Probably!  And why on earth are you blogging about butterflies? Good question, and one that probably needs addressing right now! (more…)

CrashPlan Pro

CrashPlan Pro

It doesn’t seem that long since I last blogged about CrashPlan, mainly because it isn’t!  I’d mentioned it previously in other blogs but wrote specifically about how I use it here at the end of May.  So what’s changed?   Quite a lot actually, yet at the same time very little! read more…

SSL Reverse Proxy Jail

Reverse Proxy Diagram

I’ve written a few blogs about this subject too (most recently here), so after several attempts which worked, but were a little messy, I’ve done a bit more research.  That’s led me to create a single jail to work as a both a reverse proxy with SSL.  I’ll be using all the same tools as before, so NGINX for the reverse-proxy and Certbot to create (and hopefully automatically renew) the LetsEncrypt certificates.

Where have you lived?

Along a similar theme to the Car blog, I got to thinking about all the places I’d lived in the last 45 years.  Again, these are places I’ve spent at least a few months living at, and not just a few weeks visiting.  I’ll save that list for another blog!

Queensferry Crossing

You might have seen a previous blog with pictures of the iconic bridges crossing the Forth at Queensferry, but if you haven’t we live pretty close by and whilst we don’t use the bridges that often, we get to see them from time to time.  Over the past 18 months construction has been underway on a new bridge, which opened to traffic on Wednesday last week (30th August).  It was closed 2 days later to allow 50,000 people a ‘once in a lifetime opportunity’ to walk across it, and I was one of those lucky people! read more…

Kylie

Another calendar related blog, this time spanning back much longer than Star Wars Lego.  This is my 15th, yes, fifteenth, Kylie calendar and a Christmas present I always look forward to the opening!

I’ll update this each month so you too (is there anybody out there?) can enjoy the pleasure of glimpsing Ms. Minogue every morning 😀

Back to School!

Fringe

Is there another city anywhere around the world which transforms so dramatically for a month each year?  I don’t think I’ve visited one, or at least not one that changes quite as much as Edinburgh does during August when the Fringe comes to town. read more…

Lego(land/ Builders)

 

This is one of those posts I’d saved as a draft, but not got around to writing!  I thought about it again a couple of weeks ago after a visit to Legoland in Windsor, although still didn’t get around to it.  Today was my daughters 5th Birthday party, and we’d arrange a Lego Masterbuilders party, so thought I’d try and blog about everything at once! read more…

Concrete Holes

Just before my daughters 2nd birthday, we bought a swing set for the garden from Dunster House.  It seemed like excellent value, and other than having to get it delivered to a friendly Dive Centre in Eyemouth (long story, but it was free delivery there and about 1/4 the cost of the swing set to get it delivered at home) it’s been pretty good.  It was easy enough to construct, and at the time I decided just to use the metal posts hammered into the ground, rather than concrete in, as she was kind of light and we didn’t have many visitors using it at the same time.  Earlier this week all that changed when we had four children (from about 4-10) playing on it and my partner holding it down as it was moving so much! read more…
