BeagleBone Black: My Text-Based Brag Screen
Without the bloat
, my BeagleBone Black is operating smoothly
. I removed a lot of software that was not needed for my projects. It runs as a headless server, however a web server is not one of them. Other than being a server, it's my personal I.T. Security Officer, and is doing my network admin & system admin stuff for me; it's part of my aaps (autonomous automation projects). It maintains my Raspberry Pi and any other Linux systems I operate; automated detection, logging in, maintenance, etc. It does my Android maintenance tasks, too. My wife told me I'm becoming LAZY by making my BeagleBone Black do all my work for me while I sleep or watch TV.
Well, my hands hurt and I've been very tired, lately. My wife tells me to sleep when I'm tired, and I'm actually doing that while my BeagleBone Black is left online in "autonomous" mode. I've other disabilities that hinder my computer work, and so my BeagleBone Black takes over. The best part of my BeagleBone Black is that it only consumes 2 watts of electricity.
For "autonomous mode", it's using cron-activated scripts (CLISP & BASH). I've written lots & lots of scripts, with redundant backup scripts. My goal is for my BeagleBone Black to act as me when I can't.
It's actually easier to sleep when my BeagleBone Black is handling my computer-related duties. This will make a new classification for the BeagleBone Black as a "tool for the handicapped." #BeagleBoneBlack #Debian8Linux #AutonomousAutomation
