I havn’t had much time or any reason to make anything at my little home-lab for a while. But I wanted to share and document a very handy little script, which utilizes jq to produce .a JSON string that can be used in a curl request. Jq is very handy […]
I’ve had a IPsec VPN server for a while now. But I havn’t bothered to get the configuration automatically updated when my dynamic ip address changes. This doesn’t change very often, but if my router reboots or if there is a power outage my ip address usually changes when my […]
I’ve come up with the idea of saving ESXi backups on off-site locations. But before saving full VM backups in the cloud for example, I want the files to be encrypted so nobody else can use or see them. The easiest way of encrypting would be to use the well […]

I’m not very active on Facebook, just writing a little now and then. So I wanted to auto-publish something randomly on my wall just for fun. I had a wordlist of Swedish words laying around for other fun purposes. Why not just pick a word from that list, and pick […]
I just run a small mail server for internal usage, but I wanted to test out with learning SpamAssasin some spam that I receive. Here is my simple setup, I’m sure there are other ways to do it, but this is easy and fast to setup. I use a MySQL […]
