Plex Web Interface Stopped Responding

Plex Server on my Ubuntu 14.04 went totally apeshit one day and would not load the web interface. Why?, I did not update the VM, it was silently just hammering along day by day.

Debian fucking stable here we go

Spooling up a new VM and installing Plex and mounting samba took 10 minutes, my copy pasta keyboard skills were so epic that a full size orchestra could not keep up.

Phew, Plex does want to show me the web interface. Brilliant, now let’s just log into my account..


And then it exploded, some strange update in Plex got the webinterface to hang when connecting the Plex server to a Plex user account. Fuck it I’ll let it be in “non-botnet-mode” for a while, can still watch my stuffs anyways.

On a positive note the ffmpeg package in deb-multimedia is more stable than Ubuntu’s.



Ivan’s Lollipop rom for Mi 3 is getting good

Just tired out Ivan’s Android 5.0.2 Lollipop rom for the Mi 3. It’s actually good enough for daily use because he fixed the deep sleep issue which caused the phone to suddenly reboot.

The only bug left seems to be that the NFC still does not work. Had some problems with the Play Store that it could not download several apps at the same time, but the bug went away when I tried to look at the problem (wtf).

You need to install ClockworkMod Recovery to be able to install the rom.

Déjà Dup with Google Drive

Warning: This could likely kill your cat and eat your backups.
The backend is not enabled by default for some reason. But if you want to try out Deja Dup with the Google Drive backend these instructions might work.
I am currently testing it out myself on Ubuntu 14.04, it’s a bit slow but it does work.

Install dependencies:

Clone deja-dup

Edit libdeja/BackendGDrive.vala

In the deja-dup root:

Now Google Drive will appear in the drop-down menu and should work with absolutely no guarantee that it’s safe.

Good luck!
