A Path Towards Continuous Integration

Linux, Sever Administration, Technology

I recently got PHPUnit and Laravel Dusk tests to pass for AIP Demos when either running Dusk in an OS with a graphical environment or one that is using xvfb (X virtual frame buffer). I also got them to run on the container created by TravisCI. It took quite a bit of trial and error, […]

The Pi-Eyed Programmer

Linux, Personal Computers, Sever Administration, Technology
Updated:

Lately, I’ve been rather enthralled by the Raspberry Pi, as I’ve heard so much about them that I finally had to get one. My world has not been the same since. I have wanted to develop a deeper understanding of electronics for the longest time and this device has been the perfect context to open […]

macOS Sierra Hates Web Development

OS X, Sever Administration, Technology

So, there was a little change in the beloved Remote System Explorer plugin […]

OS X, Sever Administration
Updated:

The new OS X fails to disappoint with new quirks and bugs that I trust Apple will iron out in good time. A few people have shared their problems with pfctl and how its port forwarding no longer works with 10.11. I added some more tips to the AMP -> OS X page on this […]

a2enmod for Windows!

It’s been around for a little while, but win-a2enmod is one of the first actually useful pieces of software I’ve made, although it’s all PowerShell and Windows command line, so it could rightly just be called a script, but a fairly involved one. It is for managing modules and sites on Windows Apache, and I […]
