I was looking for an indoor herb garden solution that does not take up to much space. And I also wanted the option to move it to the garden in spring or summer. I checked out various options, for example this Vertical Garden. It looks fantastic, but it has a high price point and a large footprint.
So I ended up buying with this stackable solution. It’s affordable and made in the USA. There are two color options. Hunter green is a bit prettier, but the stone colored one allows me to label what I planted on the pot with a dry erase pen.
Everything arrived faster than expected so after I picked up my daughter from daycare we went to home depot to get some herb and vegetable soil. We were lucky and got a great deal ($2.30 instead of $12 a pack) so we got a few since we plan to plant mint in a few days, too. Fall/Winter is a good time to purchase these things.
Over the last 2+ years I have been traveling a lot through the United States and Canada. During that time I tried a lot of burger places. It took me a while to go through my photos, to sort and annotate them. Here are my top three locations. A lot of pictures and impressions are featured in the gallery below. I will continuously update this post, add new pictures and maybe expand the list of top locations.
This place features craft beers on tap and one of the best burgers I have ever had. Loved the goat cheese on it. I can’t wait until I can come back. The only downside is that this place is not open every day during lunch hours. However, their sweet potato tots with the honey mustard sauce are unmatched.
Absolutely fantastic. The owners are great, they make EVERYTHING from scratch and serve local craft beer. Amazing place!

I recently upgraded my Ubuntu 16.04 LTS to a pre-release of Ubuntu 17.10 since it comes with recent compilers. The clang compilers currently create faster binaries than gcc does. Also I wanted to use latest C++ features since I started playing around with libint (electronic integrals library) again.
With a new compiler, I want to be able to easily switch back. Here’s what worked for me:
sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/cc cc /usr/bin/clang-5.0 100
sudo update-alternatives --install /usr/bin/c++ c++ /usr/bin/clang++-5.0 100
This article describes how to convert Microsoft Word documents to reStructuredText. Everything should be done within a temporary directory with simplified filenames. So let’s assume you want to convert ‘am.docx’ to reStructuredText. The Word document can contain images.
Do not forget to search and replace .emf and .gif with .png in the .rst file with the editor of your choice (gvim or notepad++)
Check the build by creating a quick Sphinx:
run sphinx-quickstart (and follow the instructions)
copy the file over the main doc in the source dir
copy the media folder to source
run “make.bat html” to create the a website and check the result.
Memcaching boosts the performance of OwnCloud dramatically. Read about this here. My server is running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. PHP 5.6 and 7.0 is handled by Plesk. In my experience 5.6 is the most stable running with OwnCloud. APCU is supported by OwnCloud but was not present as a module in PHP (Only on the Sytem providing PHP 5.4). So here’s how you install it.
This is a follow up to my previous post on installing custom modules for PHP handled by Plesk. So I assume that all required software to build the modules is installed.
For PHP 7.0 simply run:
$ /opt/plesk/php/7.0/bin/pecl install apcu
PHP 5.6 is a bit more stable for running OwnCloud. However you will get an error that you need at least PHP 7.0 for installing ACPU. This is true for the current release (>5.0). So simply install the stable 4.x release:
This article is inspired by https://devblog.plesk.com/2015/08/adding-custom-php-modules-in-plesk/. It was written for CentOs/Fedora/RedHat servers having yum instead of apt. I run Ubuntu 12.04 LTS on a virtual server. Among other applications I host WordPress and OwnCloud here. Plesk allows to use newer PHP versions (5.6.x and 7.0.x) instead of the dated one (5.4.x) that comes with my old Ubuntu.
Here are the necessary steps:
Install required packages to compile modules for PHP
Be aware that there may be some other packages that you need to install that I did not list here since they probably were already installed on my server. If you run into missing headers this might be an indicator for that.
Install the memcached module:
$ /opt/plesk/php/5.6/bin/pecl install memcached
You will be asked for the “libmemcached directory [no] :”
The default is “no”. If you have no need for sasl answer:
If you need memcached with sasl2 support you can install it manually following this advice.
After the installation is finished you need to register the module with Plesk:
$ echo "extension=memcached.so" > /opt/plesk/php/5.6/etc/php.d/memcached.ini
$ plesk bin php_handler --reread
