Website

It has now been around two years since CraftBian seized development, and i have therefore been thinking about what the best approuch would be to for the system to become End-of-Life.

CraftBian has from the beginning relied on some webservices located at my place, and since i do no longer maintain CraftBian, it would be best to shut down these webservices. However, since CraftBian needs those, it would make the system highly unresponsive since it would constantly be trying to connect and talk to these webservices.

I will therefore shortly release an update, which aims to completely remove all references to my webservices, and make CraftBian more selfsustained. Heres what is going to happen:

  • After this update, which will be version 1.6, the Update system will essentially be disabled, since it will no longer have anywhere to look for updates.
  • The automatic server creation feature has until now been using a webservice from cba.today to get the newest Minecraft server.jar automatically by automated code. This code will now be moved into CraftBian itself, away from the Webservice, adding a new settings menu to change the variables if/when Mojang changes their website.
  • The online documentation located on this page has been integrated into CraftBian it self for convenience

The update is available right now, and will be available for the rest of 2020, where after the webservices will be shutdown permanently

If you by 2021 happen to have not managed to update CraftBian through the web interface, and therefore experience a slow and unresponsive interface, due to the webservices being shut down at that point, you can manually update it by downloading the update here. To do a manual update in CraftBian go to the About tab -> Click the Update button -> Switch to Manual -> Select the downloaded file -> Click update

Thanks for anyone who have supported this project! It was a fun time and I learned alot.

I’ve been working on some templates for this site on pages that contains downloads which is now live. I have done this to streamline all my downlaods to “work in the same way”.

The new design is simply a box to the right in pages that hosts an application/mod/tool. In the box, you will find the points of interest when talking about software downloads, like download link, link to documentation, newest version number and so fourth.

Bought a new domain a few days ago, which I’ve been wanting for some time now, so i hope ill get it used.

I also have a new plan for the website. All my weekdays goes with programming, and therefore this site will probably mostly be used to stuff related to that part of my life.

In the next days i will upload some stuff i am working on, and also update the site with the things i want it to be able to do (forum etc.).

Oh and why i chose this wierd ass domain name? While it has nothing to do with the actual content of this site, it  simply comes from a phrase me and my friends have been saying to each other when theres something we do not want to waste energy on. “Cannot be arsed” is what it is short of (more explanation here). And with those new top level domains i just had to get this one.. Cannot be arsed today. Just wait for my new email address: daniel@cba.today oh yeah..

New website

I mainly made this website to host the documentation for Mod Pack Creator, but thought it would be nice to try out blogging too.

ut the Mod Pack Creator documentation can be found here

New PC

To try out the blogging part of this site i thought i would post the progress of my new computer project. Until before summer i had a big ass custom liquid cooled PC. It was built into a Corsair 800D so yeah, it was pretty darn big and a pain to move for LAN’s etc. This was my first pc with liquid cooling, and the end result looked like this:

Im not totally sure if it was because of the liquid cooling or because of the parts i chose, but i was very impressed of how well this systen ran. It had a Core i7 920 CPU which normally runs at 2.6 Ghz per core, which i had overclocked to 4.2 Ghz (4.6 Ghz at one point) and it ran without problems for around 2 years. Since then i have decided to go down the LC path again, but at the moment im running at a spare PC, which i intend to replace very soon.

But instead of going with the large case, which was my only problem with the old setup, i’ve decided to go the direct opposite route. Mini-ITX ! And ofcourse, completely watercooled. In the next blog post i will describe what my plan is in detail 🙂 .
