Rclone rcat and cat



Good afternoon all, and just before we all enjoy a great weekend...

I know world backup day ( http://www.worldbackupday.com ) was two weekends ago, but I thought I would share this BRILLIANT little trick I found.

I hit the 400K file limit on my Backup Google Team Drive 2 weeks ago, which is a problem, to say the least.

Then I thought about it and figured that the worlds best cloud sync tool should have thought about this already, and someone has.

Turns out rclone has rcat into the cloud or cat from the cloud!

This means you can do something like:

tar -zcf - Backups/Folder/ | rclone rcat gdrive:/20190412.backup.tgz

and then to get it back:

rclone cat gdrive:/20190412.backup.tgz | tar -zxvf -

Enjoy!!!

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. /etc/netdata/node.d/snmp.conf: { "enable_autodetect": false, "update_every": 5, "max_request_size": 100, "servers": [ { "hostname": "10.1.1.1", "community": "public", "update_every": 5, "max_request_size": 50, "options": { "timeout": 20 }, "charts": { "mikrotik1.cpu": { "title": "CPU ", "units": "percentage", "type": "line", "family": "cpu", "dimensions": { "used&

Double Bunk in Caravan

With our family expanding, we faced a challenge of adding another berth in our caravan, but I did not want to make it permanent. 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 .

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
