Set up your own Mumble server for speaking with your friends while gaming

Rate this post

Sometimes I game with some friends. For the time we are playing Payday2 which requires a lot of teamwork. Chatting using the ingame chat system is not the best or fastest way, there is simply no time for it. That’s why I decided to make a Mumble server.

What is Mumble?

Mumble is like teamspeak, ventrilo or skype. It is a online “chat room” but with microphones instead of keyboards (VoIP, Voice Over IP), It’s like a conference call on the phone, but over the internet so it’s free. This makes it good for gaming, since you can speak about what to do in-game without having to use time typing and reading.

Why Mumble and not the other softwares

Some say, Mumble is the best.. But actually they are all great, exept Skype (It uses up all your internet connection so there is nothing left for the game).
I choose mumble personally because it’s open source, and the server can run on Linux.

D-link DP-101 or other print server IP reset

D-link DP-101 or other print server IP reset

So you found an old D-link DP-101 or other printer server that you need to use, but don’t know what static IP address you gave it years ago?
The solution is simple.
This also on other D-link print server models, if you did this on models that are not listed below, please leave a comment so i can add them.

Verified to work with:

  • DP-101
  • DP-101P+
  • DP-300U

The D-link Dp-101 is a stable parallel to network print server, but it does not have the feature of a “Reset to default settings” hardware button anywhere. If you want to reset the device to default, or change the IP address without knowing what it is now, you have to do it with D-link’s tool, and it only works on 32Bit computers!

Here is how you do it, with link to the software

MySQL data on secondary hard disk

MySQL data on secondary hard disk
3.88 (77.5%) 8 votes

Having your MySQL data on a separate partition is important, why?

Having your MySQL data on a separate partition is important because when your root partition fills up and no space is left, your system won’t be able to boot and might crash when running, you then have to boot from a recovery disk to remove files before you can boot on your normal system again.
This is critical for servers that you can’t allow to be down for an hour or two!

The solution

The solution is easy, you just move your MySQL data to a separate partition, and this problem won’t occur any longer, the only thing that happens when you run out of space, is that the MySQL can’t write any new data to the database, which is better than the entire system crashing and being unable to boot.
In this guide i will show you how to make the changes needed to get this problem resolved.
