  • Fanless, slim-height signage system has Tiger Lake CPU

    Nexcom’s signage oriented “NDiS B360” embedded computer runs Linux or Win 10 on an 11th Gen Core CPU and offers dual 4K displays, 2x GbE, 4x USB 3.0, 2x M.2, and -20 to 60°C support.

    The next time you are sitting in your car trying to read the calorie count for the Naked Chicken Chalupa while the driver behind you gives you a courtesy honk, you might welcome a nice, crisp 4K display such as enabled by Nexcom’s NDiS B360. The Intel 11th Gen Tiger Lake UP3 based signage system measures only 36mm high, making it easier to fit into slim digital displays for EV charging systems, ticketing, tourist and museum venues, parking lots, reception counters, and advertising. With its -20 to 60°C operating range and 10 to 90% (non-condensing) humidity tolerance, the fanless system supports outdoor deployment.

  • QNAP Announces TVS-x72X 10 GbE NAS with 4K HDMI and M.2 NVMe SSD Support

    QNAP launched the high-performance 6-bay TVS-672X and 8-bay TVS-872X 10 GbE NAS with Intel Core i3 processors.

  • SG90 Servo Motor with Raspberry PI Pico and MicroPython

    Servo Motors are common electronics and diy components able to perform rotations (usually in a range between 0 and 180 degrees). You can use SG90 with Raspberry Pi Pico with easy MicroPython code as only PWM is required

    In this tutorial, I’m going to show you how to use an SG90 servo motor with Raspberry PI pico and Micropython.

    Elegoo SG90 Servo Motor
    Servo motor is a compact kind of DC motor equipped also with a set of reduction gears. Usually, it can rotate only in a range between 0 and 180 degrees with its “horn”, even if this accessory can be replaced with the 2 additional inserts available from its standard packaging.

  • How to install go1.19beta on Ubuntu 22.04 – NextGenTips

    In this tutorial, we are going to explore how to install go on Ubuntu 22.04 Golang is an open-source programming language that is easy to learn and use. It is built-in concurrency and has a robust standard library. It is reliable, builds fast, and efficient software that scales fast. Its concurrency mechanisms make it easy to write programs that get the most out of multicore and networked machines, while its novel-type systems enable flexible and modular program constructions. Go compiles quickly to machine code and has the convenience of garbage collection and the power of run-time reflection. In this guide, we are going to learn how to install golang 1.19beta on Ubuntu 22.04. Go 1.19beta1 is not yet released. There is so much work in progress with all the documentation.

  • How To Install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9 - idroot

    In this tutorial, we will show you how to install MongoDB on AlmaLinux 9. For those of you who didn’t know, MongoDB is a high-performance, highly scalable document-oriented NoSQL database. Unlike in SQL databases where data is stored in rows and columns inside tables, in MongoDB, data is structured in JSON-like format inside records which are referred to as documents. The open-source attribute of MongoDB as a database software makes it an ideal candidate for almost any database-related project. This article assumes you have at least basic knowledge of Linux, know how to use the shell, and most importantly, you host your site on your own VPS. The installation is quite simple and assumes you are running in the root account, if not you may need to add ‘sudo‘ to the commands to get root privileges. I will show you the step-by-step installation of the MongoDB NoSQL database on AlmaLinux 9. You can follow the same instructions for CentOS and Rocky Linux.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
