Install Synchronet BBS on Ubuntu Server


Synchronet Bulletin Board System Software

... is a free software package that can turn your personal computer into your own custom online service supporting multiple simultaneous users with hierarchical message and file areas, multi-user chat, and the ever-popular BBS door games.

Synchronet development began as a personal hobby in 1990 for single-tasking MS-DOS compatible computers and Hayes compatible modems. The program was sold commercially from 1992-1996 after which time it was released (with source code) for both the 16-bit DOS and 32-bit OS/2 platforms to the public domain and development by the author was ceased.

In November of 1999, the author found a renewed interest in further developing Synchronet, specifically for the Internet community, embracing and integrating standard Internet protocols such as Telnet, FTP, SMTP, POP3, IRC, NNTP, and HTTP. Synchronet has since been substantially redesigned as an Internet-only BBS package for Win32 and Unix-x86 platforms and is an Open Source project under continuous development.

Synchronet Version 3.1x for Win32 and Unix (Intel-x86 architecture) can be previewed on Vertrauen (Home of Synchronet BBS Software).

In this article, i walk you through installing the Synchronet BBS Software on a Ubuntu Server.

DD-WRT on the Senao EnGenius wireless Access Point / Client Bridge


Senao EnGenius EOC-5610

I finally broke down and bought myself my very own all-in-one outdoor wireless access point. I decided to pick up the Senao EnGenius EOC-5610 because it obviously supports the ever so powerful DD-WRT firmware. This thing is really tricked out. Not only does it utilize the Atheros AR2313 wireless chipset (yay for aircrack-ng), it also has a built in 8db internal omni-directional antenna and 8mb of storage if you ever wanted to capture some yummy wireless packets.

In this article, i walk you through installing DD-WRT Professional on a Senao EnGenius EOC-5610 wireless access point / client bridge.

The Perfect Server - Ubuntu Linux 9.04 32bit


What is the perfect linux server?

The perfect linux server to me is something that can maintain all of my downloads, whatever it may be (Torrent, newsgroups, soulseek, ect) that can be controlled and accessed from VPN, LAN or Internet via HTTP... and have it all running when it boots up! (That was the hardest part actually)

In this video tutorial, i walk you through installing:

- Webmin (HTTP Adminstration of your server)

- Torrentflux (HTTP Front-end for Torrent downloads)

- SABnzbd Plus (HTTP Front-end for Newsgroup downloads)

- irssi (Text based IRC Chat client)

- Museek (Soulseek music download daemon)

- Eggdrop IRC Bot (*does the robot*)

- Hamachi VPN (Free and easy VPN solution that even my grandma can understand)

Update: Runes of Magic on Ubuntu Linux


In my previous post, i walked you through getting Runes of Magic running on Ubuntu Linux via Wine. Recently, as most MMORPG games have, they updated their client and i found that it broke the game running on linux. When i would launch the game (client.exe) it would just show the background animation and not present the usual EULA and Login. A quick wine registry hack solved this issue.

Chromium on Ubuntu 8.10 / 9.04


Google Chrome?

No. Chromium. Chromium is an open-source browser project that aims to build a safer, faster, and more stable way for all Internet users to experience the web. This site contains design documents, architecture overviews, testing information, and more to help you learn to build and work with the Chromium source code. Google Chrome is built with open source code from Chromium.

Right off the bat, Chromium wanted to import all my settings (Bookmarks, Saved Passwords, ect) and i was able to dig through some of the new options, like setting the theme to match your GTK+ theme! Also, as you may already know, this thing is blazing fast. Pages load into individual processes as well, so if a pages freezes up and crashes on you, just that tab goes away - not your entire browser!

In this article, i will walk you through installing the open source Chromium web browser on Ubuntu Desktop Linux 8.10 and 9.04.
