Proxmox VE is a complete virtualization management solution for servers. You can virtualize even the most demanding application workloads running on Linux and Windows Servers. Checkout their page: proxmox.com

Due to lack of better backup functionality I prepared patches to support differential backups in Proxmox VE. These patches are in use for over a year.

Lately I came across a very common problem: how to install debian in virtualized environment automatically. You can always do that by hand, manually. Download Debian Netinstall image, and go through all installation steps. After searching I found out a useful tutorial on the web: Creating a KVM virtual machine using debootstrap. However, it’s still a few steps which needs to be done. Can’t we do that better? That’s why I prepared bash script that automatizes the debootstrap process.

I moved this site from WordPress to a static site powered by Octopress. Why? First, it’s more secure as there’s no need to maintain web hosting system, update WordPress, plugins, etc. In addition the site management is beatifull. You simple write all posts, project pages and portofolio pages using Markdown. It’s much more simpler than using not-that-best web html editor or writing everything by hand. With Markdown you get pretty simple syntax so you can simply concentrate on writing!

For the most Wordpress To Jekyll Exporter was good enough. It still required some handwriting and fixing, but in general conversion process was rather simple.

If you would like to start using Octopress check out this site: http://octopress.org/docs/. It explains all caveats when using this pretty amazing bloging framework.

Old site (WordPress based) is still available at: http://wp.ayufan.eu/

Recently, MikroTik released new routerboard, the RB951G-2HnD. I got my device on Monday. It’s the new SOHO router with twice faster CPU, twice more RAM and NAND then present in RB751G-2HnD. In my personal opinion, it’s definitely the best home router i’ve used.

Just as always, when I get something new, I try to break the things :)

Recently, I got interested in the new Windows Phone 8 platform. The new version brings the native-enabled or the native-only apps, which allows to write and run C/C based apps.

I were thinking about porting my ayuine2c to the WP8, but there was one problem. The project it’s written in Qt and by that time, no such port existed. I started by looking at: aknights-qtbase and Qt 5 on Windows 8 and Metro UI. Then after few sleepless nights I managed to compile all of the qtbase modules (core, network, gui, widgets…). I did some tests, and guess what, it works. There’s still a lot of functionality missing and not everything is tested as it should be, but in general works, quite well :)
