Make Sure to Download Your Flickr Photos This Weekend - Because this Cloud Service will be deleting everything over 1,000 of you Photos if you are on the Free Account #flickr

Day 18: I got back into the challenge and finished the setup, including some port forwizardry required to expose my servers to the internet through 2 routers. Fun!

Somebody made the perfect developer survey – sadly on Twitter, but the results are hilarious.

Before I go ruining my instance, is there any way to give a user their username back? I assume I can do something with the database but I'm not 100% certain.

Friend made an account, I promoted them to admin expecting to have to option to demote them if needed but I found that I didn't. So I had them delete their account then remake it. Only to find that their username was taken.

Anyone know how to fix this so they can have the same username?

(please boost 🙏)

date -d "+ 20 years"|| date -v +20y # Tomorrow at 01:37:04 UTC is the halfway point between Y2K and the Unix signed 32-bit epoch rollover on Jan 19th, 2038. Think it doesn't matter? Consider that Raspbian OS for Raspberry Pi's is still 32-bit.

Note to self: fully switch to GitLab before this happens. 🤦‍♂️

Day 17 (yesterday): I installed (also on ) to an old computer to improve our home network security and isolate the servers from the other devices. I didn't do any of the major setup yet since I need to order some network cards and a switch first.

I'm kind of nervous about this but I think it's finally ready.

What I've been working on over the past few months is, in part, my website. I've added a few pages, changed some things around, and done a lot of CSS work. It's a lot cleaner than it used to be.

In addition to that (and this was the real time-sink), I'm now 9 different applications available for anyone to use completely free of charge. is now a Libre Hosting provider!

Day 16: I didn't have much time, so I just cataloged the info from the 4 servers in a spreadsheet. Hopefully I'll get to tomorrow...

Day 15: I helped debug some gyro sensor code for a highschool robotics team my brother is on.

Does your school give the data of your children to a random cloud provider in another country? Or does it what the capital of Switzerland does for its 35.000 students, keeping their data safe and secure in their own #nextcloud?

British Political Joke.... 

Day 13, a very lucky one! I was busy this week but I got back into the challenge today and it went great. I gave up on booting from (grub2-install: error: unknown filesystem.) and tried :ubuntu: instead, and it worked the first time! Tomorrow, I plan to install it on the other 3 nodes in the server and start playing around with on some real hardware. I can't wait!

made my old moto x new again! And I'm not being sentimental, I mean that I finally have the latest android features (like split screen) and security updates!

Any recommendations for software/configuration?
