About My Pi
This is a Raspberry Pi development server owned by Derwent Ready. I use this to develop various desktop applications, games and web projects.
This also doubles as a place where I host all my non-business/fun projects but due to the developmental nature of the site no functionality is guaranteed and all software/web pages are provided as-is with no warranty.
This server runs on Cherokee Web Server, a C10K capable web server.
If you'd like to know how to setup a home-based web accessible server using Linux/a Raspberry Pi you can read my blog post about how to install Cherokee on a Raspberry Pi. This is a bit out of date now. I followed it up with a short series on how to install Cherokee on Raspbian with one long command. You may also need the follow up: Temporary Fix For Cherokee on Raspbian and Quickest Way to Install Cherokee on Raspbian - Addendum.
This server also runs on Hiawatha.
If you're looking to start an actual website consider hosting it with Hawk Host. They have been my hosting company since about 2009 and they're pretty good. It's not unlimited hosting but the limits are generous and the pricing is good.
Pi Count: 12
Raspbmc256 - June 2012
My original 256mb Model B Pi. Was the original Drentsoft Development server but was replaced by GimliPi. Became the original TronicsPi but was stolen as a Raspbmc media centre.
GimliPi - Sept 2012
The Drentsoft Development server
Raspbmc512 (Formerly GloinPi)
An XBMC media centre Pi. It was originally destined to be a database server to test having database and web servers on separate computers but... things happened...
The Drentsoft electronics experimentation Pi
The Drentsoft electronics experimentation Pi... with a Plus! Yeah I bought it just so I could say I have one, now it's my secondary "projects" Pi :)
Bought to replace TronicsPiB+ on a rover project to free up the more impressive B+ for other more intensive applications.
GimpliPi2 - Feb 2015
A Raspberry Pi 2 Model B bought to replace GimliPi for more serious development work. It couldn't have come at a better time I had just considered replacing GimliPi with an Intel NUC device costing a fair amount more and using quite a lot more power.
Raspberry Pi 2 Model B - Unnamed
Undecided what to do with this yet.
Pi Zero - Dec 2015
A Raspberry Pi Zero that I bought because at this point I might as well complete the collection. I'm not QUITE sure what to do with this one. I'm thinking of using it to power a magic mirror or a tiny robot.
Pi 3 - 01 March 2016
The latest GimliPi. I hope it's more stable than GimliPi2. I'm considering getting another for playing with the built-in Bluetooth and Wifi support.
Tiny Pi B - May 2016
Another Raspbery Pi Zero that's become the camera streaming server for my 3D Printer.
MycroftPi - September 2016
A Raspberry Pi 3 I bought specifically to make a Mycroft AI.
