OctoPrint – a new attempt

It was not so simple to set up a Raspberry Pi as a 3D-print server as I had hoped. It started with issues with the WiFi-dongle, continued to a complete black out on all of my USB web cams and finally I gave up…

I have been hacked!

How could this happen? My website has been hacked in the beginning of this week! As a reaction my provider immediately took it offline, because a script on the server has been used to send out spam…

Is your Windows computer getting slow?
