Installing Pi-hole on an Orange Pi One
August 26, 2018 5 minute read

I recently integrated Pi-hole into my home network using an Orange Pi One and my TP-Link Archer C7 V2 router. I decided to outline my steps in case somebody else is wondering how to do it with that exact hardware.

Pi-Hole is an open source project that claims to be "a black hole for Internet advertisements", which means it is basically a local DNS with loopbacks for known ad servers. When you're done with this article, you'll have an ad-free experience for all the devices on your home network. Installing everything is a fairly easy process that will leave you feeling like a renegade from big data tracking.

Using Foundation for Emails in Windows Subsystem for Linux with NVM
May 24, 2018 2 minute read

Foundation for Emails was a revelation when it first came out. It uses NPM to help you build responsive emails that look mostly the same in various email clients. It inlines and compresses your HTML so you can pop it into Listrak and be done.

I use it at work all the time, but getting it to npm install is getting harder and harder. Zurb hasn't maintained it in a long time, which is a disappointment to many.

I recently spent some time troubleshooting this on a Windows machine with Ubuntu installed via WSL, and I'd like to share how I got it working.

We're throwing a benefit show next Saturday for our friend Tess, who was hit by a car riding her bike home from work. These are some of the best bands in town, so you definitely don't want to miss out! At Planet Sarbez (115 Anastasia Blvd).
