Raspberry Pi Time Machine and NAS Backs Up Data For You

Archiving data can save you in a pinch—but what if you forget to make a backup? This Raspberry Pi project, created by Curtis Gross, solves that problem by automating the process in a convenient NAS device. The end result is a Pi-powered time machine server with all of your data stored in archives.

My Favourite Secret Weapon – strace

Why strace?

I’m often asked in my technical troubleshooting job to solve problems that development teams can’t solve. Usually these do not involve knowledge of API calls or syntax, rather some kind of insight into what the right tool to use is, and why and how to use it. Probably because they’re not taught in college, developers are often unaware that these tools exist, which is a shame, as playing with them can give a much deeper understanding of what’s going on and ultimately lead to better code.

My favourite secret weapon in this path to understanding is strace.
