The Struggle Was the first Scroobius track I discovered and I’ve kind of listened it to death. Introdiction and Let ‘Em Come are both really strong tracks too, so give them a listen.

Spiral Draw

I’ve been on holidays for a few weeks now. While on the train from Torino to Venice I decided to make another little 2D canvas toy. This one is based on a video that went viral a while ago. Also source.

So this weekend I was inspired by this video. I decided to make a canvas toy that emulated the behaviour. Also (messy) source.

Deluge Server Setup (feat. Upstart)

This is a quick run through of how to setup Deluge on a headless Ubuntu box, with Upstart taking care of keeping it alive.

Deluge is not as well maintained as a package on Ubuntu as say Transmission. So the first thing to do is get the latest version from the Deluge teams PPA

$ sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:deluge-team/ppa
$ sudo apt-get install deluged deluge-console

Notice we’re using the daemon version of deluge (deluged) as this is a headless setup. Now unlike most daemons deluged doesn’t come with an init script of any kind. To solve this I wrote a little Upstart script.

Place this script in /etc/init/ making sure you change delugeuser to the user you wish to run deluge under. Once thats done, start it up…

$ sudo start deluged

Now we need to configure deluge to work with remote clients (you may wish to skip this step in favour of connecting through an ssh tunnel if your box isn’t behind a NAT). As the user you are going to be running deluge as, run the following.

$ deluge-console

then in deluge-console

config -s allow_remote True

Finally setup a deluge username and password.

$ echo 'username:password:10' >> ~/.config/deluge/auth

Now you’re all good to go.
