My Evernote Alternative: Running TwoStairs Paperwork on a Raspberry Pi

I've been looking for a self-hosted evernote alternative for quite a while.

Since my interests in what can be done on the Raspberry Pi, I wanted to see what kind of self hosted Evernote solution I could come up with that would run off a Pi on my local home network.

Subsonic 6 Raspberry Pi Zero Streaming Media Server

Subsonic 6 Raspberry Pi Zero Streaming Media Server

I've written a fewRaspberry Pi tutorials, but when it comes to music, I wanted a media server that could play my music library anywhere I was at (with an internet connection, of course). The RuneAudio Raspberry Pi works well for music when I am sitting by the Pi and can jack in with my headphones or speakers, but if I'm at work, the Rune Pi can't pipe the tunes to me at my desk from home.

For this, I've chosen to run Subsonic, a free media server that can handle both audio and video files, and stream them to any web browser on the net, or a dedicated phone app.

While I could play my music on my phone or from the laptop, it's pretty cool to have your own server sitting at your house that you can play your music from anywhere you are, and accomplishes my goal of having a single source for media. I don't have to move media files to every device I have anymore. I just load the files to the Raspberry Pi and I'm done.

Run Your Own Self Hosted CRM With SugarCRM On A Raspberry Pi

Having a good CRM is a no brainer. SugarCRM is an excellent SalesForce alternative if you're looking to save money.

Running SugarCRM on a Raspberry Pi costs less than $5 a year, and best of all, you own the data.

When I was freelancing, I used SugarCRM to manage accounts, contacts and relevant information through the engagement as it has all the features that both freelancers like myself and outside sales people need for collecting and retaining customer information.

Rune Pi: Raspberry Pi Rune Audio Music Player

Rune Pi: Raspberry Pi Rune Audio Music Player

In my last post, I mentioned that I use an Original Rasbperry Pi Model A (2012 version) as a Rune Audio music player.

I use this little contraption both at home and work to play all the music I want, and it keeps my phone free to make and receive calls.

I found it annoying that the Samsung S4 doesn't automatically mute incoming messages and notifications when I'm jamming to music through the earbuds. Since I get a lot of notifications, the music cuts out just so that the phone can ding at me. Hate that. Also when calls come in, the music again mutes and pauses.

You just can't rock it out when the music keeps cuttin' out like that, so I found another solution.
