Running a Quake 3 Server on a Raspberry Pi

Quake 3 is a classic, so much so that there are still servers running to this day. This is how to get a Quake 3 server to run on a Raspberry Pi – cheap and easy!

TalkTalk IPC6023 YouView FIX

TalkTalk introduced a bunch of multicast stream internet channels to their YouView box for free recently, but I, like a whole bunch of others have had various issues with the IPC6023 error and apparently by the number of topics on forums the support teams have no idea why or how to fix it.

Ice Spear Queen Support Build – Path of Exile

OpenShift missing environment variables – AHHHH.

OpenShift makes me angry, I’m getting that out there right now. Okay, so I recently had to create a snapshot of an OpenShift application so I could upgrade it from a small gear to a medium one for extra grunt, however nobody told me anything of the process other than the basic commands to create and restore the snapshot. (Shameless plug to tutorial on snapshotting)
What I ended up with was a million errors in the php.log claiming the the MySQL environment variables didn’t exist and a website that wouldn’t connect to the database. Yay. Not helpful.
