Building LibreOffice Online for Debian

LibreOffice Online is a very cool project by the fine people at Collabora to bring the LibreOffice core functionality into a web browser. In effect, it’s a Free Software version of the Google Docs suite of productivity tools, allowing one or many people to edit and save documents in a browser. The software builds on the LibreOffice core code, and currently is only distributed as a Docker image, obtainable from the link above.

Build A Raspberry Pi BMC

NOTE 2017-03-21: This post is still a work in progress - check back for updates! IPMI BMCs are pretty ubiquitous in the datacenter and enterprise computing, because in a warehouse full of computers, finding and walking up to one just to reset it or check its console is quite daunting. The same goes for a home server: it may just be in my basement, but in a closed-up rack it becomes a huge hassle to manage a machine without IPMI.


Welcome to my new blog, build in Hugo! Hopefully this one will stay online a little longer than my previous Wordpress-based sites! On this page you will find posts about cool stuff I’m working on, things that interest me, and general tech news and my opinions thereof. I hope you enjoy your stay!
