Tracking Users Online — Part 3

Posted by & filed under , , .

I’ve been lucky enough to get some time on my hands to put together a small release of the PixelServer project — and this is the post to accompany it. If you’re familiar with my posts from this series (see the previous entry here btw), you know that the code is hosted on Github under […]

Play Framework

Posted by & filed under , , .

This is a rather interesting find and I’m still looking into it — so hopefully will come back with more insights on it — but I thought I’d publish these things as I find them. So bear with me as I unravel this mistery — as of right now, unless I’m looking in the wrong […]

Server Migration

Posted by & filed under , , .

Some of you might have noticed, some might not, but I finally got off my arse to migrate my liviutudor.com domain to a proper hosting package. Gone are the days where I had 2 servers stuck under my desk at home — as much as I had fun X11-ing into my Linux boxes and adding […]
