So much DNS goodness
DNS, or the domain name system, is an essential component of modern internet communication. It allows us to reference computers by names instead of IP addresses. In this series, we will cover the basic ideas behind DNS so that you feel comfortable wor

If you ever wondered what the software for landing on the Moon looked like, it's now available on GitHub. Even if you can't read 1960s era assembly language, there's some amusing commentary in the code itself:

# ASTRONAUT: PLEASE CRANK THE SILLY THING AROUND

and some slightly worrying:

# TEMPORARY, I HOPE HOPE HOPE

back on to tightening up my backup process
 
I have been setting up a small hypervisor server using KVM/QEMU, managed via libvirt.

I have a few guest systems running nicely now.

The only thing left for me to do is set up domU image backups. - I plan to use duplicity (http://duplicity.nongnu.org/) to sync my backups to amazon S3.

If a virtual machine is running its image is always changing so a normal rsync incremental backup wont work, so you need to either pause the VM or find a way to stop the image you want to backup from changing.

Below seems like a nice method;

If anyone has any other suggestion please comment :)

Blueberry Zero by +Sean Hodgins 
Do you ever have those moments where you wish you instantly had access to a Linux terminal? or maybe you have a sudden idea for a python program and you just can't wait to start writing it on a Pi? Well this is for you! The Blueberry Pi harnesses the power of Bluetooth SPP, which is essentially a virtual serial port over Bluetooth. When you connect a SPP device to a PC, Mac, Linux, or Android device, you can communicate with it as you would if...
