## Which Raspberry Pi do I have?

Run
grep Revision /proc/cpuinfo

and look it up on https://elinux.org/RPi_HardwareHistory. For posterity I copied the table by the time of writing...!

## Remotely Press a Power Button

This blag post describes how to use a [Raspberry Pi](http://amzn.to/2wjICvo) to remotely "press" and potentially "hold" the power button on a PC. This is my first non-trivial (still pretty-trivial) hardware-related project. So don't expect anything too fancy. Would you like to know more?

## Snort on Raspberry Pi behind FritzBox!

I finally decided to set up a real router in front of my router. The main use cases, I wanted to cover were the following: * nice local domain names: Since I run a FritzBox (which is a pretty common plastic router in Germany), all local host names (sometimes!) get suffixed by .fritz.box. This domain cannot be configured to .something.awesome and the whole setup is quite in-transparent, that I could not figure out, in which cases, the suffix is mandatory when resolving host names. * play around with [snort](https://www.snort.org/). * bandwidth monitoring: to replace the current workflow of randomly killing machines, when the internet connection is slow and one needs bandwidth to do something important™. In this blog post I will cover nothing of this. Instead, I'll explain, how I set up a RaspberryPi to enable me to do all the above in the future. Do you want to know more?
