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 think my rclone sync was maxing the CPU and that's why it wasn't mounting. I've lowered the transfers and checkers in my rclone command now.

Remember the days when you could read someone's message without them knowing you read it?

The second run of Vorta seems to be getting all the files, and it's uploading super fast. This would have taken at least a week with a standard backup service and it's almost done after a few hours.

I'm not sure how much I trust it though after the first run missing most of the data. I'll have to keep an eye on it. I'll give borgmatic a shot if I have further issues with Vorta.

Best guess is that my attempt to copy it with rclone interrupted the process. Not sure on the proper way to use rclone with it if that's the case.

The directory doesn't even have all the files in it.

First backup with Vorta complete, but only 1 directory seems to have been backed up instead of all the sources I provided. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

People using rclone to put your borg backup on cloud storage, what command are you using? rclone copy? sync? Have a preferred script instead of a simple command?

Just started my first backup with Borg via Vorta. Wish me luck!

The server side was no setup at all basically, which I was very surprised by. You just install Borg, and then you can set that server as a repo. No server configuration needed.

I've been liking Fastmail the past few months without downtime, but I'm realizing how expensive it can get. I wanted to create an email address for a family member on my domain, and then realized that'd be another expense. I'm kinda wishing I were using my own hosting now.

Nextcloud is back to not uploading large files after the last update. Never going to win with this.

Know of a good app to push NFC data to a reader? My building uses NFC to allow elevator access and I want to use my phone instead of a card.

So I might have been incorrectly blaming Nextcloud for months, for an issue that was actually hardware-related.

My host replaced my network cable and I've uploaded a 1.4GB backup of Signal every day for the past 4 days or so without issues. Large upload issue may be fixed.

Nextcloud Auto Upload doesn't like burst shots because they create a subdirectory and Auto Upload wants the new directory to be set up for Auto Upload. Anyone know of a solution?

New quick blog post about how you can use a simple bash script (really just a CURL command) to quickly organize your github repos.

Thanks #MiriamCollege #mapHER event for the opportunity to talk about #OpenData #OpenStreetMap , #QGIS and #Mapillary

These are the lucky #geoLadies who got the schwags. 😍

You ever get the urge to order a dedicated server with 32GB RAM even though you have no real use for it? Hetzner is making me drool a bit.

Favorite budget dedicated server or VPS host? I want to try Nextcloud on another host other than Kimsufi. Need at least 100GB storage.

Meh. Finally got around to updating my phone, and then find that Yalp doesn't work properly in Android 9. Now I can't install some updates because split apks aren't supported and neither is root install mode.

My phone battery life has been terrible lately and BetterBatteryStats isn't really getting me anywhere. :(
