Another Saturday, another post about the Dragon Touch X10

The server and the ME572c
The server and the ME572c

The difference today is that while this post will eventually end up on the DragonTouchx10  website, I am writing this using my Asus Me572 directly onto the Dragon Touch X10 powered web server that is sitting 30 miles away.

I continue to be impressed at how well this server runs! No glitches so far. No it is not the be all, end all, server solution, but it runs damned great!

So if it can do this imagine how well it can run your normal Android apps.

RSS Multi-Importer Plugin issues

Info=I-1This was one of the best little plugins out there, because it imported feeds and auto-posted them quite nicely while leaving links back to the site they originated on.

For some reason mine no longer runs when my cron command hits the site every 15 minutes or so to make stuff happen. It works fine if I manually fire it off.

While there are other plugins out there that do the same thing I would love for someone to help me figure out why this plugin has ceased to function properly.

It’s Thursday and here is another post about my little test server.

1126306_fuel_gaugeSo as I always do on Thursdays I post something to my dragontouch website. Today I have chosen to write the post on the actual dragontouch test server.

Since I am home all day today I chose to leave The Server active for the entire day. I’ve left the server in “never sleep” today. So far after being on for 5 solid hours it is still at 70% battery.

Not too bad for a relatively inexpensive 10.6 inch tablet. I did however unplug the mouse and turn off the Bluetooth keyboard.  Because I have to leave the machine awake, the screen has been active all day so that the tablet does not go to sleep and lose Wi-Fi connection. So this is a pretty good test of battery life on this tablet. I activated The Server this morning around 10:30 a.m. and it’s now 3:50 p.m. so that is pretty good battery life as far as I’m concerned.

A quick update here, it is now 5 pm and the Tablet is still at 50%. That’s 6.5 hrs of solid running.

Tonight’s treat is a series of images of delicious turkeys!

Happy Thanksgiving!
Happy Thanksgiving!

So I don’t really have any tech info or specs to talk about tonight, so I thought I would just post gratuitous images of delicious turkeys for everyone to salivate over.

I’ll be eating turkey and taters and all sorts of other stuff tomorrow and while I know there are folks out there who will be starving, I am  simply not going to concern myself with them tonight. Bottom line is, I can’t send them the excessive amounts of food I will be eating and therefore and I not going to worry about fixing the world for 1 day.

This one looks great also…

Damn, I am getting hungry!

…and a couple more…

Happy Thanksgiving folks!

PS: All that being said, if anyone has a clue how to keep the Wifi on always, without the tablet being plugged in will be honored forever in my mind and on this site and throughout the universe! (or something like that…)

So a short list of what this little server is running. It won’t amaze most folks, but it is impressive.

multitask_header
It really isn’t that difficult.

This little KSWeb based server is running on a Dragon Touch X10 (or my BLU Studio X phone) android powered server. The base server runs MySql, PHP and Lighttpd.

Sitting on top of that is WordPress 4.3.1 with a short list of plugins that includes:

  • Jetpack -includes stats and image hosting.
  • Updraft Plus -to run backups to make transition from tablet to phone server easy.
  • SI Capcha – to eliminate some bots.
  • Optimize Database – to shrink the db every few days.
  • Feedzy – to provide the cool RSS links to other sites I run.
  • WP Sendgrid to send email to those who register.

So that would be the current setup. Questions, comments? Register and post or leave a comment.
