Currently in the process of recording interviews for a new podcast about the people in science, about the human aspect of academia, the joy, successes and hardships of doing a #PhD, a #postdoc, making a career in research. Are you currently doing a PhD? A postdoc? A master student looking into entering academia and uncertain of what to expect? And you have opinions on academia and a story to share? Or know anyone? DM me, I'd like to hear your story.

BACKUPS. ARE. IMPORTANT!
Reinstalled proxmox. Opted to go with LVM volumes merged together instead of a ZFS pool (as I suspect either the hardware RAID card I'm not using or the 14gb of RAM not being quite enough for ZFS).
I was able to restore all of my containers from the NAS where I backed them up.
What are some things that every computer user should learn? What things do you wish every computer user knew? What are some of the biggest benefits that individuals and/or society could reap if computer users learned these things?
Please boost, I honestly want as many serious answers as possible. Feel free to answer variations of the question for different levels of "computer users", such as programmers, office workers who use a computer 4+ hours per day, phone-only users, etc.
I'm looking for a Desktop app, not a place to store them. I've got storage sorted.
Just need a nicer way to manage them than staring at a list of file names.
I'm looking to move some photos out of Google Photos.. but I don't know into WHAT?!
Ubuntu is main OS.
Willing to self-host something but looking for ease of use mainly. Something I can use to sort/tag/display.
Minor edits would be nice (crop/rotate/etc)
Any recommendations before I head to Search Land™?
Here's a real life hack you may not be aware of -
Many city and county governments in the US have a mandate to dispose of surplus stuff via various mechanisms, and you, as a member of the community, can often get furniture, tools, electronics, and more, cheap or free, if you follow their offerings.
Might be time to pull the plug on the Pi Hole. Kept running afoul of the Wife Acceptance Factor in its usage.
Perhaps if I could split out the malware from the ads but many lists are a mix of both.
The main issues have been the redirect links Instagram and other sites use. The links break because of the random ad-tracker they use.
Breaking links isn't going to be accepted in this house.
Are you in the US and have been prescribed stimulants (e.g. for ADHD or autoimmune stuff)? FDA is seeking public comments (deadline 11/19), here’s a commenting guide from a friend who’s a disabled lawyer fighting all the crap that makes it harder to get the right medications.
