LED Configuration With OpenWRT

I still had an unused obsolete PCEngines WRAP.1C board lying around. I had never tried OpenWRT on x86 (back in the early to mid 2000s, my WRAP ran LEAF Bering uClibc).

So I set up a SixXS IPv6 tunnel endpoint on the WRAP, and while reading the OpenWRT documentation, I stumbled over the mentioning of LEDs. Turns out that OpenWRT can trigger some boards’ LEDs on a number of events - which let me configure two special purpose LEDs instead of the two unused-by-default in the WRAP’s array of 3 GPIO LEDs.

How to Rescue Data Off the Disk Inside a WD MyBook Live NAS

Got a WD MyBook Live NAS with a broken NAS circuit board? Want to rescue your data off the standard 3.5” SATA disk inside the NAS enclosure? Tried mounting the block device on your Linux system and just got the kernel saying EXT4-fs (sdg4): bad block size 65536?

This article summarizes what I had to find out while I was in that situation.

Lausanne’s Pont Bessières with the Cathedral in the background.

Originally, there was just the road bridge. The metro bridge was only recently inserted below the pre-existing road bridge.

I love both ideas: Inserting a second bridge into the first one, and having a two storey bridge at all.
