MikroTik – Backing Up Your MikroTik & Routerboard Config

Another great script that will email you a copy of your MikroTik/Routerboard device config. You can find the source on the MikroTik Wiki below.

Some notes about the script on the MikroTik wiki and below.

  • I had to modify the script on the MikroTik website, it had used /tool e-mail set address instead of /tool e-mail set server.
  • Ensure that you specify an IP Address for sending an email, a host name will fail.

I’ve moved the code to GitHub just because its awesome and it will track changes! The latest code is available at https://github.com/jordantrizz/mikrotik-scripts/blob/master/backup

/export file=([/system identity get name] . "-" . \
[:pick [/system clock get date] 7 11] . [:pick [/system clock get date] 0 3] . [:pick [/system clock get date] 4 6]); \
/tool e-mail send to="your@email.com" subject=([/system identity get name] . " Backup " . \
[/system clock get date]) file=([/system identity get name] . "-" . [:pick [/system clock get date] 7 11] . \
[:pick [/system clock get date] 0 3] . [:pick [/system clock get date] 4 6] . ".rsc"); :delay 10; \
/file rem [/file find name=([/system identity get name] . "-" . [:pick [/system clock get date] 7 11] . \
[:pick [/system clock get date] 0 3] . [:pick [/system clock get date] 4 6] . ".rsc")]; \
:log info ("System Backup emailed at " . [/sys cl get time] . " " . [/sys cl get date])

Please note: The code above was incorrectly formatted and may have had some characters changed or stripped when it was first posted. I have since updated the above code and it should be correct, if you have any issues then post a comment. -Jordan @ 09/12/12

Auto Bounced Messages Management vBulletin Module Helps Purge Bad Email Address On Your Forum

I was browsing through my mail spool on my machine, and I noticed that there were some messages in one of my accounts for a vBulletin forum. After further review, it was some bounce backs that had accumulated from users that didn't have a valid email address. I then started to do some Google searches for a vBulletin module (vBulletin's search is horrendous and practically useless) and found this module.

Apple releases iPhone 2.0.2 Firmware/Update

It has only been a few weeks and Apple has already released an updated firmwave for the iPhone. Could this mean Apple isn't going to sit on bugfixes, are more updates going to be released in the same short time span. A couple of weeks is really short, however a couple of months to improve some iPhone features, fix bugs or release new functionality is something that should be embraced.
