OT: Old Smartphone becomes ultimate remote

From: Phil Sieg 
------------------------------------------------------
Happy New Year!

I, like many of you, have struggled with a large and growing collection 
of remotes everywhere I have a TV.

I finally figured out that my phone is the ultimate remote control. Then 
I figured out that an OLD UNUSED smartphone was an even better choice so 
it can stay with the electronics for the wife and kid to use as well.

SO my old android phone is now:

TV Remote
PLEX Controller
Chromecast controller
Marantz Receiver controller with Marantz app (Denon and some others have 
receiver apps as well)
Netflix Remote
Hulu Remote
Logitech Harmony Hub interface

So when I sit down I nab the android remote, launch the logitech harmony 
app and tell it I want to either: Watch TV, Chromecast, Listen to music. 
When I choose the hub executes a macro that turns the appropriate gear 
on, switches inputs and gives me unified remote ability from either the 
smartphone screen or the Harmony remote. i.e. when in TV mode the 
channel up and down is my cable box while volume is my receiver.

PLEX is my goto for most of my streaming, so I set the system to 
chromecast, launch plex on the android remote, start my show, and send 
it to the chromecast which turns the plex app into a graphical remote 
for controlling the stream.

By setting the phone to Airplane mode and then turning BT and wifi back 
on I can get 3-4 days out of the battery. Since it is a handset with 
wireless charging, I just set it on the charger each night and it stays 
charged.

The glue that binds all of this is the $100 Logitech Harmony Hub which 
is a brilliant product well executed with fantastic build quality to boot.

This is a poor description of what has turned into an elegant solution.

Hope it helps another person in remote hell.

HELP! Ubiquity Unifi...

From: Phil Sieg 
------------------------------------------------------
So I just set up my network in the new house.

I ordered a 3 pack of the ubiquity unifi long range AP's.

Installed 1 on the middle floor (3 floors), and I have full signal 
EVERYWHERE in the house.  Tomorrow I was going to put up the other 2.

Question: Is there such a thing as over-saturation of signal? I have 3 
and I have a "box" in each ceiling that needs to be covered. I am not 
opposed to using them all and NEVER EVER having weak wifi again unless I 
am 2 blocks away.

Gimme the straight poop guys.

EPB rocks and a Pro-Tip

From: Phil Sieg 
------------------------------------------------------
I am having a great day.

In my new house (been building for a YEAR now), EPB came by to hook up 
the internet & TV locations. I asked them if they could put a "few" ends 
on my CAT5 pulls... They said SURE!

So 18 cat 5 runs = 36 ends. Next I said can you tone them out and label 
them please? They said NO PROBLEM SIR!

Can you test each one? ABSOLUTELY!

Pro-TIP if you do a house, remodel, business wiring and you get EPB... 
They will do all the hard shit FREE and be nice about it!!!

They just gave me an entire day of my life back!

Another Red Hatter on the LUG....ME!!!

From: Lynn Dixon 
------------------------------------------------------
Hey gang.. Just wanted to announce that I accepted a Sr. Cloud Consultant
role at Red Hat.  I am in Raleigh this week getting all hired-up!

For me, this is a dream job, and I will be working with some cool
technology.   One thing my manager discussed with me today is how Red
Hatters are expected to contribute back to the communities, and that LUGs
are a great way to do that.

So, I'll try to post some cool things about CloudForms (ManageIQ)
OpenStack, RHEV (oVirt) and other "cloud-ish" technologies, probably using
my official Red Hat email.

Likewise, if any of you guys know of any groups in the area that discuss
cloud technologies, let me know. I'd like to get involved with them.

OT local cons was: Swap meet

From: Rod-Lists 
------------------------------------------------------

I have not made one at the the Choo Choo at all.
In two different instances I tried to work with the Chattacon group or at least a certain rep but both cases the plans fell thru.
May be that rep.

I mean bringing potentially 500 LARPers would a win/win. Could not get a group discount though.
Then there was the web page mess. I could NOT get any Content or feedback from the person I was talking to.
Lee picked that up finally.

Haven't been to Conooga Perhaps it time we checked it out.

Part time sysadmin work

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
I occasionally post here looking for people willing to work, on an
as-needed basis, doing remote sysadmin work for me (mostly in the form of
monitoring infrastructure and jumping in if something goes down in an "on
call" scenario if I am traveling or otherwise unavailable).

Probably only a few weeks/weekends a year, very flexible, you have the
power to say "no"...

This would be Linux severs only.

I don't have it posted on https://developcents.com/jobs/ but feel free to
look at that for more about us.

Please contact me if interested.

Thanks,
David

tunnelblick OpenVPN client for OS X

From: David White 
------------------------------------------------------
Do any of you guys who use Mac have experience with tunnelblick? I'm
wondering what your experience has been, if you trust it, and if it does
the job.

I don't use a Mac, but will test the software shortly (early next week) on
my wife's Mac laptop.

I have a client who needs an OpenVPN client  - most of their hardware is
Windows based, but 1 laptop is a Mac...

Job opportunity in NYC

From: Nate Hill 
------------------------------------------------------
I miss you, Chattanooga!

I know I'm opening myself up to ridicule by posting a job in NYC on
Chugalug, but hey I can live with that.

I'm up here in NY running the Metropolitan New York Library Council now,
and I'm hiring a Digital Services Coordinator.  This is a *really cool*
opportunity.  I'm looking for a developer with some chops, but also someone
who can organize folks and help create collaborations, collisions, and
opportunities between digital library projects and the rest of the civic
activist / arts / creative technology communities.  Info below.

#############

http://metro.org/jobs/digital-services-coordinator-metro/

The Metropolitan New York Library Council (METRO) is seeking qualified
applicants for the position of Digital Services Coordinator.

The Digital Services Coordinator will support Digital Culture of
Metropolitan New York (DCMNY), an online collection hosting service for
members of the Metropolitan New York Library Council. DCMNY is currently
powered by Islandora; the Digital Services Coordinator will need to be
comfortable with Linux, Fedora Commons, Drupal, and custom PHP
modifications. The ideal candidate will be confident with this technology
stack and is up to date on other frameworks and repository solutions (e.g.
Apache SOLR, Ruby/Rails, Blacklight, Hydra). She or he will make
recommendations and lead a migration to a different platform should this be
advantageous.

METRO=E2=80=99s staff of 15+ people hosts classes and events for our member=
ship.
The Digital Services Coordinator will also collaborate with the METRO staff
to maintain the technical infrastructure for the office and community
space. This support includes but is not limited to: wireless network, VOIP
network, hardware/software support, technology purchasing, and Google apps.

Finally, the Digital Services Coordinator will have an outward-facing role
at METRO; she or he will engage with the New York/Westchester technology
community beyond the library world. Civic hacking, big data, data literacy,
physical computing, the IoT, and gigabit fiber networks are topics that
should get you excited and light you up with new ideas. This outward-facing
role will lead to new initiatives, new opportunities, and new perspectives
at METRO. The Digital Services Coordinator will be central to their design
and implementation.

The ideal candidate is a curious, creative, and communicative technologist
who will be responsible for supporting and developing a wide variety of
services at METRO. Vision and leadership come from all levels of this lean
organization, so the ideal Digital Services Coordinator will combine
humility and grace with expertise and authority. She or he identifies as a
capable programmer and believes in beautiful, concise, and well-commented
code.

The Digital Services Coordinator will have some opportunity to work
remotely, but will need to be on site regularly in our space on 11th street
in Manhattan as well. METRO is a fun and collaborative workplace full of
energy and enthusiasm.

METRO offers a competitive salary and excellent benefits. Salary is
commensurate with experience.

METRO is an equal opportunity employer. To apply, please send a .pdf copy
of your resume and cover letter along with any other material you would
like considered part of your application to info@metro.org

.



About METRO

METRO is the largest of nine library councils in the state of New York,
with METRO serving all of New York City and Westchester County. These
councils were founded in the 1960s to facilitate the sharing of resources
between different types of libraries and archives: academic, public, art,
museum, corporate, and more. In the past, programmatic efforts have been
primarily focused on the discovery and delivery of physical materials.
Today, METRO is increasingly oriented toward the digital, in work ranging
from collaborative digitization projects that engage our diverse membership
to the administration of the Empire State Digital Network, a service hub of
the Digital Public Library of America. In addition, METRO offers a wide
variety of classes, lectures, events, and other professional development
activities.

METRO aims to serve as a laboratory and experimental space for our growing
membership, combining new developments in librarianship with emerging
technologies drawn from parallel fields. The Digital Services Coordinator
will help drive this innovation.
