Raspberry Pi 2 + rTorrent/ruTorrent + NGINX/PHP-FPM = Awesome

Every time I go to rebuild a home server of any type I always forget which guides I used in the past and what steps I had to take to get any software running. Now most of what I need is easy to setup but some things take a few more steps. One guide I am always looking for is a mostly from scratch install of rTorrent with ruTorrent on NGINX with PHP-FPM. Since I never seem to find one that meets my specific case I decided it was time for me to write the guide I needed.

In this guide I will be building on top of a base install of ArchLinux ARM on a Raspberry Pi 2. If you have any questions about the steps below, please feel free to comment!

I am sure I am about 4 years behind the curve on this one, but I recently came across the neat concept of ‘humans.txt’. The basics of the concept is a extra file which is not intrusive to the code or experience of the site. It is located at the root, just like the much used ‘robots.txt’, but lists the authorship, how to contact them, where to look for their work, thanks to those who helped, and even the technologies used to build the site.

Outings in New York City: The Fourth

So, I just realized it has been over a month since my last post but it never seems like that much time has past every time I think about it. I figured another few shots from our time outside the apartment might be in order, so here we go with a few pictures from The Rambling, a single section from Central Park. These were taken a few weeks ago and feature an amazing little rock climbing dog we met as well as a few good shots of the nature to be found in Central park.

Also, be on the look-out for a new post coming up from our visit to Arthur Ashe Stadium during the US Open. As always, feel free to share this post and if you would like to let me know what you think or request larger versions of the images you can email me.

Outings in New York City: The Third

Sometimes you take a picture which you just absolutley love, and this is one of them for me. Though I can’t take all the credit for it as Haley had to tell me to re-take it from this particular angle. The best part of this image is that it was just the beginning of our day! For the third installment of Outings in New York City we have the Egypt installment at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. I think I have a couple of good shots in the bunch and if you would like a larger copy of any or want to give me a few notes, feel free to email me. Starting this out with my favorite, a shot from the 23rd Street subway platform on the way to the MET:

Outings in New York City: The Second

About two weekends ago Haley and I took a trip out to the Brooklyn bridge and actually remembered to bring the camera so we have a few more pictures for the world. We took a subway down to City Hall in NYC and walked from the Manhattan side over to the Brooklyn side, taking the time to get a few good shots from under the bridge. Just like last time, if you like them then feel free to share this post or comment here and email me if you would like larger copies. Enjoy!
