Cryptomator

We all have some files, that needs a little more encryption than the local machine encryption.

For years I was using Boxcryptor, but they have decided to go subscription based.

The basic requirements are Mac and Windows client, but also some way to access the files from Android and IOS.

Having single files and not a file vault that all the files live inside is very important. This help with cloud sync of the encrypted system. Rathe synchronise a bunch of small files, than one big one.

And so we have Cryptomator.


Free client-side encryption for your cloud files.
Open source software: No backdoors, no registration.

Now, we cannot determine if it is really open and no backdoors, but having a Github library with all the source code ( https://github.com/cryptomator ) does go a long way at making it trustworthy.

Give it a try.

Double Bunk in Caravan

A couple of options are available, of which one is simply to add a bunk to the single berth. We however did not want to cause any permanent markings on the interior of the caravan .

Netdata + SNMP + Mikrotik

Always wanted to see my Internet line usage as a gauge without having to log into the router.
So today I configured SNMP in Netdata to collect from my Mikrotik router.

CasparCG Simple Playlist

It is possible to build a simple playlist as a rundown in the CasparCG client. It will very simply play each item after each other that are on the same layer. In this very simple post I show how to build such a playlist including the very important step of activating the OSC.

The Open Sound Control (OSC) implementation is how the client knows what the server is doing and then being able to send new command back to the server when a piece of media has ended to trigger playback of the next piece. For more details on the OCS, please see http://casparcg.com/wiki/CasparCG_OSC_Protocol
