GlusterFS (GFS) is the open source equivalent to Microsoft's Distributed Filesystem (DFS). It's a service that replicates the contents of a filesystem in real time from one server to another. Clients connect to any server and changes made to a file will replicate automatically. It's similar to something like rsync or syncthing, but much more automatic and transparent. A FreeBSD port has been available since v3.4, and (as of this post) is currently at version 8.0 with 9.0 being released soon.
This is a technology demonstration and tutorial for deploying GlusterFS on FreeBSD. As a bonus this is an opportunity to play with Bhyve.
There is an official FreeBSD port, but there is no official 'supported' configuration or documentation for using a Unifi Controller behind a reverse proxy. This guide will hopefully save you time from researching and digging around for a solution. If you are not familiar with what a Unifi Controller is then you may want to have a look at Ubiquiti's products.
Installing additional Root Certificate Authorities on the Amazon's Fire TV is a simple process so long as you have the correct tooling. First connect to the Fire TV using ADB debugging, then upload the certificate files to the Fire TV, and finally run an action to install them.
This is a script for a FreeBSD X11 desktop running as a VMWare Virtual Machine Guest. It will enable smooth mouse, clipboard sharing, and auto-resize. Essentially it installs the emulators/open-vm-tools binary package and performs some configuration. If you prefer to have a fully configured desktop environment check out the Installation script for a FreeBSD based MATE desktop.
