I prefer to use Kodi on my Raspberry pi, its simple and running very well.
Unfortunately there is no native support for Spotify – Marcel van der Veldt to the rescue.
Marcel put up a nice music add-on for Spotify, it even works very will with Spotify Connect/Streaming devices.
- Download and copy the Marcelveldt Repository zip file to your Kodi box
- Open Kodi -> System -> Add-ons – > Install from zip file (if you copyed to another folder then the repository folder, the use “browse in root file system”)
- Install and wait for add-on enabled notification
- Go to install add-on from repository and select Marcelveldt’s Beta Repository.
- Select Music Add-ons
- Select Spotify
- Select Install
- Wait for add-on enabled notification
- Select Spotify
- Select Configure
- Add your Spotify username and Password
..And you’re done! 🙂
You can access your Spotify playlists from music add-ons.
Your device will also be visible for streaming to/from – I tested it from my iPhone 7, works great! 🙂
Need to add multiple subdomains with LetsEncrypt?
maybe Certificate for WWW and non-WWW?
do a dry run, to test it
./certbot-auto certonly -d originaldomain.com -d www.originaldomain.com -d new.originaldomain.com -d new2.originaldomain.com -d new3.originaldomain.com –dry-run
I tested it with apache2 works great!
There seems to be an issue with Trend Micro and Windows Defender after Windows/ Defender patches has been applied.
The quick workaround is to deploy are registry key:
The dword value should be 1: DisableAntiSpyware
In case it does not exist, go ahead and create it.
Restart and you should see things start working again.
If you have the issue, you should be able to deploy it using Group Policy Preferences.
NOTE: You can also enter safe mode and create the needed key.
The long awaited UI is finally scheduled to release.
The UI features a small set of changes, but with simplified navigation and user friendly pages.
- Navigation added
- Limited posts pr page
- User friendly search and navigation bar
All portals will be updated within april.
Powering devices trough USB is getting more and more common.
If you, like me, have multiple devices like Raspberry PI, Thinker Board, mfi etc etc.
You might want to use one single device to power them all, but what to use?
I’ve tried a few now, some of the devices not delivering the needed effect to the devices, unfortunately.
I ended up with a 50W 10 Ports USB Power supply.
Output: 5.0v-10A (each 2,4 max)
Input: 100-240VV -1.4A 50Hz-60Hz)
its most commonly referred to as a traveling adapter, but works like a charm in your home “datacenter” or for charging multiple devices in your household.
I’m powering 5 Raspberry Pi’s (RPI3), 1 Tinker Board and 1 mFi Port.
For now its been running for 2 months with no issues or power cycles needed.
The OEM model is £10 off ebay.
Also available on Amazon

So it was time for a reinstallation, time to cleanup and maybe rethink a few things. I installed Windows 10 1607 Enterprise x64.
I had my old storage space running, but wanted to add an additional disk.
I had to move some disks around, hence the disks was required to have the same block-size. When running the storage space wizard, I marked the disks to add and create the new pool from
I wanted to go for ReFS this time (some comparison here: http://thesolving.com/storage/refs-vs-ntfs-comparison/)
When trying to format the storage spage, it would switch to deleting storage space and show the following error: The parameter is incorrect: (0x00000057)
I recall having seen a similar error in Windows 8, the solution was then to create a registry key, to allow for formatning over non mirrored volumes, specifically for ReFS.
Funny think, it was still needed.
Add the key, reboot and retry.
A simple tool to extract and use the Windows activation key from BIOS.
The tool will extract the key Windows Management Instrumentation Command-line.
The key extracted will be install and activated using Windows Software Licensing Management Tool.
Tool is command-line based.
Can be used with your favorite client management tool
Came across this error today:
HTTP Error 500.0 – Internal Server Error C:\PHP\php-cgi.exe – The FastCGI process exited unexpectedly
I was working on a Windows Server 2012 R2 with IIS installed.
After installing PHP 5.6 the error occured when trying to access any php files.
So apparently you need VC++ 11 runtime for PHP 5.5 or newer.
the solution was quick, download, install and iisreset (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30679)
Make sure you download and install the x86 version (vcredist_x86.exe), PHP on Windows isn’t 64 bit yet.
If you’re running PHP 5.4.x then you need to install the VC++9 runtime (http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5582)
I know that there are some questions about, how to include msvcr120.dll/msvcp120.dll into your project.
If you want to drop that dependency. If you compile the program in release version, in Visual Studio 2013/2015 and do not depend on any VS-specific commands (
#pragma etc.) or precompiled headers etc.
If you want to compile it to one single release .exe and provide it to user WITHOUT demanding enduser to install VC++ Redistributes for VS
You can statically link the runtime to your project by setting the
/MT flag. You can find this option in Visual Studio 2013/2015 under Project > [ProjectName] Properties… > Configuration Properties > C/C++ > Code Generation > Runtime Library. Make sure to only set it for the Release configuration.
