@thumb @IslandUsurper I installed the latest debian, followed the guide at Linode on postfix install. https://www.linode.com/docs/guides/email-with-postfix-dovecot-and-mysql/
I also had to send an email to linode asking to open port 25 they did, then fail2ban.
I waited years before I decided to run my own email server. I have been running postfix on Debian now since December and I'm not looking back some guides on big cm cloud providers, do advise against it, but it's been smooth running and reading the guides took me about 2 weeks to setup. It would have been shorter but fail2ban took a bit of work. If any one is on the fence I say go for it.
How I feel when I have to do something complex on an embedded system with no high-level languages installed
I tracked down a bug today by compiling all our versions since our last release then applying a test in a binary search, I was able to track the issue down to a specific commit. Although I have not got a clue what the code does yet "I'm the new guy" I fell like I found a needle in a stack of needles. Go binary search what a powerful method.
No school district should buy devices for students without securing the right to sideload the apps they need on them – imagine buying 50,000 Ipads at public expense and then having Apple boot the app you rely on out of the App Store!
Likewise, no district should buy Google Classroom without securing a legally binding guarantee not to block interoperators who want to integrate other ed-tech services into the curriculum, with or without Google's cooperation.
I just introduced my wife to KeepassXC what a great app and relieves me of the mental burden of passwords. #cloudcankissmyass
