Stoofperen Recipe


◦ 2 kg Gieser Wildeman pears
◦ 500 ml red wine
◦ 250 ml water (or wine if you have enough, this is just to make things cheaper)
◦ 1 Star anise or “Illicium Verum”
◦ 1/2 tbsp cinnamon
◦ 4 tbsp dark-brown sugar that contains inverted sugar syrup. We call this “basterdsuiker.”
◦ Few drops of vanilla extract
◦ Few drops of almost extract
◦ Handful of Sultana raisins

◦ Tea egg
◦ Thick-bottomed pot
◦ Timer
◦ Measuring spoons
◦ Measuring cup

⁃ Peel the pears as thin as possible
⁃ Quarter the pear and cut the rigid stem lines, core and butt out
⁃ Place the pears in the pot
⁃ Place the raisins in the pot
⁃ Put the anise in a tea egg and place it in the pot
⁃ Pour de wine and water in the measuring cup (or just the 750ml wine and no water)
⁃ Add the Cinnamon, vanilla- and almond extract and the brown sugar
⁃ Stir well so the sugar and cinnamon is well dissolved in the wine
⁃ Pour the wine in the pot and make sure that the amount of wine is enough to cover the pears

Bring the content of the pot to a boil and then put the lid on it and turn the heat to low. Just enough to keep it simmering.
Keep it at this heat for 90 minutes and GENTLY stir it at the 45 minute mark.

When done, let it cool down and then you can divide it into storage containers. Be careful, the pears are now soft and fragile.

This recipe is made to my personal flavour and you can always give it your own variation to it!

[Solved] HP LaserJet 300 colorMFP M375nw scan to network folder fails

“Cannot connect to the network folder. Ensure the shared folder name is correct”

TL;DR: Switch SMB 1.0/CIFS support ON in Windows 10. Share folder to everyone. Maybe use the computer’s user/pass. Done.

My HP LaserJet 300 colorMFP M375nw suddenly stopped scanning to a network folder in Windows 10. After many hours of futile searching, I have found the solution.

Perhaps it is not the safest solution, but heck it needs to work. Now.

If you have not changed anything to your share folder, please proceed to step 2.

Setting up your shared folder is a drag in Windows 10, since you can basically do it in multiple ways with one showing something differently than the other.

1. R-Click the folder that you want to share
2. Click Properties
3. Click the Share tab
4. Select Everyone in the pull-down menu
5. Click Add
6. Select Read/Write on the right of the Everyone entry
7. Click the Share button
8. Click Ready or OK
9. Close the Properties window

1. Open the control panel
2. Click Programs and Features
3. Click Programs and Functions in the top right corner
4. Click Add/Remove Windows Features in the left column. (the one with the shield ,I am translating this from Dutch)
5. Search for SMB 1.0/CIFS support and check that box
6. Click OK
7. Reboot

Thing should be working again and if not, do check if the shared folder address in your printer’s share panel is correct.

New FTP user for unRAID

  1. Install ProFTPd by SirG
  2. Create folder where the FTP user should have FULL access to
  3. Go to USERS tab
  4. Click ADD USER
  5. Create username
  6. Create password
  7. In the DESCRIPTION field enterftpuser [PATH WITH LEADING SLASH]
    So for example:
    ftpuser /mnt/usr/myfolder
  8. Click ADD
  9. Go to SETTINGS tab
  10. Click ProFTPd
  11. At “Enable ProFTPd:” select YES (*)
  12. Click APPLY
  13. Service should be running. If not, start service
  14. DONE

(*) In case you already have the service running, click RESTART to activate the new user.

The server can now be accessed by SFTP and port 22.

Change W10 password

One day, a friendly wolf said:

so all you need is a usb stick with a windows 10 installer, boot to that, click “Repair my pc” after it asks you for the language -> open the troubleshooter -> open the command line interface

then switch to the C drive
then cd Windows\System32\
rename osk.exe osk.old|
rename cmd.exe osk.exe
close and boot windows normally
click the On-Screen-Keyboard which now opens cmd.exe
net user “username” *
type new password

make sure undo your rename of the cmd.exe and osk.exe things after you’re done

unRAID Docker image corrupted solution

Warning: This method worked for me and I used this source for it. Proceed at your own risk. Also I need to note that I do not use Cache in any form.

The problem:
You have rebooted your unRAID server and your docker service is refusing to start. What you may see is the following:


Apr 2 02:25:30 Tower emhttpd: shcmd (264): /etc/rc.d/rc.docker start
Apr 2 02:25:30 Tower root: starting dockerd ...
Apr 2 02:25:36 Tower kernel: BTRFS error (device loop2): parent transid verify failed on 23757324288 wanted 2572174 found 2572201

Apr 2 02:25:46 Tower kernel: BTRFS: error (device loop2) in __btrfs_free_extent:6805: errno=-5 IO failure
Apr 2 02:25:46 Tower kernel: BTRFS info (device loop2): forced readonly
Apr 2 02:25:46 Tower kernel: BTRFS: error (device loop2) in btrfs_run_delayed_refs:2935: errno=-5 IO failure
Apr 2 02:25:46 Tower kernel: BTRFS warning (device loop2): btrfs_uuid_scan_kthread failed -30
Apr 2 02:25:51 Tower emhttpd: shcmd (266): umount /var/lib/docker
Apr 2 02:25:51 Tower root: umount: /var/lib/docker: target is busy.

This of course, made me extremely nervous. Luckily this only meant that my docker file got corrupted. It happened most likely while I was moving it while the docker service was still active. Yeah, it happens.

It’s fairly simple, but it takes a little bit of time.

  1. Go to Settings -> Docker -> Enable Docker, and set to No, then click the Apply button (this disables Docker support)
  2. Go to the location of your docker image and rename the file to docker.img.bak – The file may be in

    I’m asking you to make a backup, because in all cases, safety first. “Why didn’t you have a backup in the first place?”, I hear you say. Yeah yeah, we all make mistakes every so often! D:

  3. Go to Settings -> Docker -> Enable Docker, and set to Yes and this creates a fresh and empty Docker image. The docker service should now be started. You can see this as this on the docker settings page:

    and on the dashboard you should now see an empty docker field.

  4. Now go to the Apps Tab, Previous Apps Section. Then check off all of your previous applications and hit “Install”

I recommend to do it one by one so you can double-check the settings and clean up the unused templates after you’re done. If you want to make a copy of the templates, FTP into your server and go to


After you have restored your docker apps, you’re done. Check all the things and make a backup 😉



How to GIT


git pull

make new local branch:

git checkout -b [name]

make changes, then add all:

git add .


git commit -m "comment"

push changes and create new branch:

git push


git checkout master
git pull
git checkout [USER]
git rebase master

Step 1. Fetch and check out the branch for this merge request

git fetch origin
git checkout -b [USER] origin/[USER]

Step 2. Review the changes locally

Step 3. Merge the branch and fix any conflicts that come up

git fetch origin
git checkout origin/master
git merge --no-ff [USER]

Step 4. Push the result of the merge to GitLab

git push origin master

(In this case [USER] is foxsan. And you are not him.)
