Today I learned a new thing. And another thing to Learn how to for my blog. Such a long list now...

Also, anyone know how to log basic things like in/out network bandwidth. CPU & RAM usage. What files people use on nginx, preferably also a country of origins.

Also I want it to be private, such that I can't track a singular person over time.

Or maybe I need a whole book about how to run a server as I'm just learning as I go along and learn from mistakes.

Also why I'm reinstalling:

My nginx config is held together with glue, and everything is in one file, I think. Add shit to it till it works kind of logic. Now I can't touch it or else 3 other things break. Then fix thoose and have another 3 things to fix...

Also my file structure is a mess. Filled with 777, randomly put files on /opt.

Everything is run by root.

Its a miracle that updates even work tbh. But I really want a more not scary server to work with.

I lowkey want to install Arch linux on my new VPS server (XMPP, Web). But the rational part of my mind screams how stupid it is for upkeep and how I rather should be rational and use something like CentOS instead.

But like, Arch is so up to date and simple *mmm*...

Are you not feeling motivated to go outside for a healthy walk? How about downloading the application StreetComplete from @fdroidorg and start helping out OpenStreetMap by adding missing data about the places around you!

I started today and it made my daily walks a lot more fun! It also motivates me to walk even more and visit new places that I wouldn't visit otherwise. :)

Microsoft has released their new Terminal application to GitHub, marketing it as another demonstration of their commitment to "open source". While the project is MIT licensed, did you know it is inextricably linked and dependent upon numerous proprietary SDK tools, headers, and the Visual C++ ATL.

Do not be fooled, see through the mirage of feigned support to undermine and sabotage the original ethics of the free software movement!

Is there a good that doesnt need you to send in a resume of your entire life.

Hetzner is crazy, asked me first for all my personal information, THEN my debit-card number, after all that they lock me out of the account asking for 20$ trough paypal to "verify" me litterly holding my just put in data hostage.

I can also send in a picture of more private things like my passport to verify myself for "free".

I regret ever signing up for this ransom-ware and giving them my personal info.

I have been saving up some CSS goodies and ideas for awhile now for my blog idea. I really want to challenge myself to create a modern accesible webpage with lots of nice features without any javascript. I got quite a bit of experience in using server side over javascript for many things already, so it wouldnt be too hard of a task to do.

I just have to settle on a design first 🀒

I dont know why i hurt myself in this way when I'm programming Show more

I need to find some modern fonts for myself that look great for UI πŸ€”

Always late for

But i wanted to chip in my shitty KDE setup before i break it by installing GNOME ontop of it, creating a nice mess for myself.

Also 4.4GHZ becuase im too lazy to stabilize 4.7GHz for linux.

@jex @nebunez To help you:
- Strong copyleft licenses usually require you to share your contributions under the same license, and to create derivatives under the same license as the original.
- Permissive licenses have minimal requirements about use of the software. They do *not* require licensing under the same license.
- Public domain is where no exclusive intellectual property rights apply.

What's your favorite type of license for open-source projects? Are you caring about sharing improvements and prefer the GNU GPL or do you want simple, permissive licenses like the MIT license?

Im only realizing now that im using mastodon as a type of forum style posting, rather than as a "social medium".

Too bad that i dont know about any good forums, or a forum to ask about forums. Reddit has been my "forum" for awhile now, but its extremely opinionated and up/down vote-fest.

So i just heard about AzireVPN azirevpn.com/ and after a bit of research it seems to be a good service from a privacy and security standpoint. Even battling my go-to vpn that is Mullvad VPN mullvad.net/en/

So i was wondering if anyone has any thoughts about this service, as it seems a bit superior as they own and set up all their servers in each location they provide. Where as Mullvad rents physical dedicated servers for most of their fleet.
