Bowers & Wilkins DM22 fix cabinet, filters, grill clothing

Found these speakers for a handful of euros so i bought them with the idea of cannibalise them for the tweeters to use for a pair of tweeterless DM5.

AKAI GX-260D

So, i found this beast and i bouhgt and I’m gonna clean it up and fix where needed (mainly capacitors i guess).

Letsencrypt is broken on Debian Jessie

You need backports,

so first add the jessie-backports to your favourite apt source.list

# Backport
deb http://http.debian.net/debian jessie-backports main

Then apt-get update, and then install back letsencrypt forcing the use of the backports:

apt-get install -t jessie-backports letsencrypt

That’s it,
