Hi, I'm Joseph. I'm 25 years old, a owner; , , married, have 2 kids & a dog, & living in the .

I'm a user that enjoys & deploying alternatives to popular services - my latest being .

I came to PH for vacation & ended up not wanting to leave after doing work with . Now I help kids living in poverty & my wife & I are trying to adopt one - an 11 year old girl named Rian.

I need some suggestions on how I can parse a website in PHP that has CloudFlare captcha. I normally use simplehtmldom, but that's triggering the captcha page to display. Tried curl with details set, like a user agent, and that also triggers the captcha.

I think I've reached the point in which maintaining a Google-free phone isn't worth the hassle. Planning to reinstall the stock ROM.

Any negative thoughts on sapper + svelte before my site is rewritten in it? We were originally going to use Gatsby but performance on sapper + svelte seems better.

I've tried a lot of software because of Fosstodon that I probably wouldn't have if I didn't see so many others using it. It's been a good experience. Out of everything I've tried since joining here, I think Tiny Tiny RSS is my favorite. The powerful filters let me easily see the news I care about.

@Gina you're the one that uses Wekan, right? Does it have features like this?

Finding a project management tool for my needs has been difficult. I was using Kanboard for a while but it's ugly even after some CSS tweaks and hard to follow.

I'm currently leaning towards ProofHub but it isn't perfect for my needs either.

I need:
- an easy way to keep track of projects, due dates, status, and time
- templates for tasks with simple checklists
- the ability to have tasks on a project that a client can see, and also private tasks in that same project that are just for staff.

How have you all been? I've been away from Fosstodon a lot lately. I haven't done much tech related other than set up Gitea and work.

Vorta keeps randomly saying "Borg binary not found", and then I have to restart it to fix it. No more automated backups for me :(.

Anyone with a lot of netdata experience feel like helping me with it? I need to set it up on multiple servers but keep the web UI password protected and / or only displayed at 1 URL for all the servers. Not sure how to do it.

I need a Single Sign On solution that's free or has 1 fee rather than a per person fee, and is easy to use. Any suggestions?

I just put silicone no-tie shoe laces on my sneakers. This is the future - maybe.

What's the simplest way to redact text in a PDF?

Dedicated IP on a VPN doesn't help me with PayPal. I can only withdraw to my old bank. New bank keeps getting flagged.

@hugo actually maybe if it's a dedicated IP, PayPal won't detect it as belonging to a VPN. Maybe they base it on logins from the same IP rather than the organization associated with the IP. I'll give it a shot in the morning.

This goes back to my PayPal issues. Still getting flagged every time I try to withdraw and now can't withdraw even after talking to support. Support tells me to go back to the US or give my password to a friend and have them withdraw for me. Pro security.

I need a VPN with a residential NY IP address. It shouldn't show as belonging to a data center. Any recommendations?

Giving Wavebox a try as my all-in-one messenger. Not sure how I feel about spending $4/mo for a browser though.

I've been trying to withdraw from PayPal for over a week and it keeps getting blocked. Support says to try again on Monday. If I needed that money immediately I'd be completely screwed.

Getting a lot of responses that require access to 1 of my devices. I do sync between my devices, but if I need to suddenly evacuate, I might not be able to grab my devices before I leave. I'd then lose access to everything, including bank accounts.

Struggling to think of a good way to keep backups of my KeePass database. All my passwords, including the password for off-site backups, are randomly generated and stored in KeePass, so currently without my KeePass database, I can't restore a backup of my KeePass database.

I could create a Google account with an easy-to-remember password and store it on Drive, but I also don't want it stored on Google drive, so meh.
