Expanding disk on Linux can always be a pain. Most guides I found requires a restart, which is not always that popular on an production server. This guide was written as we had to expand a disk on our internal webserver at work, running Ubuntu server 16.04.
After problem upgrading to v0.65, I moved my Home Assistant (HA) to docker. Trying to upgrade in virtual environment (VE) was giving an error message that i needed Python 3.5.3.
It’s about a year ago since i wrote about a panic button setup with the Fibaro Button and Telldus/Tellstick. As I moved my Z-wave devices to Home Assistant, the Button scenes hasn’t been supported and therefore my button has been put away until now.

The default car-stereo has radio, cd and cassette, which is not that bad for this old car. In the first 6 months of this year (2017), Norway has switched from radio/FM …
Using default git-commands are easy enough (if you are used to it), but this month I have started up two new projects on a clean computer. Setting up git for the first time is not a big issue, but I always start Googling – so this is a simple “from scratch” guide for starting with git on a clean Windows-computer …
