Upgrading Samba 3 to 4 on FreeBSD

Since Samba 3.6 finally became end-of-life on FreeBSD, I’ve been forced to upgrade to Samba 4 on my servers. Luckily, it was a relatively painless update. # portmaster -o net/samba43 samba36-3.6.25_1 # mv /usr/local/etc/smb.conf /usr/local/etc/smb4.conf # mv /usr/local/etc/samba/* /var/db/samba4/private/ Finally, in /etc/rc.conf replace samba_enable=”YES” with samba_server_enable=”YES”. You can now restart Samba with the command: # […]


Reducing the number of disks in a ZFS pool

In the past I’ve shown how easy it is to expand a ZFS pool by adding extra disks. While this is the easiest way of expanding your storage capacity, it does come with a downside: From that moment on, you’re stuck with the larger number of disks, as ZFS does not have an easy way […]


Van Saar Necromunda gang

I finished another set of models, namely my old Van Saar Necromunda gang. Two leaders, six gangers, four juves and four heavies/specialists. It only took me about 13 years! Again, old metal models. I kinda like them, although they are eminently unsuitable for a game like Necromunda. With a gang, equipment changes constantly, and the […]


Deathwing Librarian

When the new seventh edition rules for Warhammer 40k came out, with its renewed psychic face (welcome back, second edition!), I decided my Terminator Librarian would be a good choice as a first HQ unit to finish. It’s the old 1995 metal model, sculpted by Jes Goodwin. No conversions this time, just the original model, […]


Tau Brute Squad

My local gaming group is running a Kill-Team tournament, so I needed a Brute Squad. Looking at the options, a Tau Drone squadron seemed to be the cheapest option (gun-drones come with basically every Tau unit on the market, so they’re almost free on Ebay). For the leader I got an old metal Shas’ui model […]


Fixing NextGEN Gallery and wp-typography compatibility

I figured out what broke the images on this site a while back. I run several plugins on this wordpress site, among which are NextGEN Gallery (an image gallery plugin) and wp-typography (which cleans up typography and styles certain parts of the text). However, a patch of NextGEN gallery a while back broke the compatibility […]
