ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XI GENE Build 2019

About every two years I like to upgrade my pc. As with most of us cost is always a major factor in choosing components. After reading many reviews this is what my budget could afford to go with this time around. It is a very reliable system and performs very well for my needs.

Dynamic DNS with Cloudflare

CloudFlare is the perfect dynamic DNS host because, unlike the other major ones, CloudFlare is completely free. Unfortunately if your ISP dosen’t allow use of a static IP, maintaining regular internet uptime can be quite annoying. Using a curl / systemd based solution to check and renew my IP if it changes works well with my Ubuntu / Linux box.

CommonMark for WordPress

Markdown provides an efficient way to create formatted content for the web in plain text. Unlike a WYSIWYG editor, you use special characters to indicate which words and phrases should look different. Markdown syntax was designed to be readable and unobtrusive, so the content in Markdown files can be read even if it isn’t rendered.

No-IP Dynamic Update Client on Ubuntu

No-IP is a dynamic DNS service that is very reliable and easy to use. If you have, like my current setup, a home server box connected to your internet service provider and do not have a static IP, then you need to use dynamic DNS service to periodically check for changes to your IP address and update the Dynamic DNS database to reflect that change.
