I'm a father, musician, academic, work psychologist and former sysadmin. Skalman (Shellman) is a character in a Swedish comic for kids. He is an ingenious tortoise who invents all sorts of things, including spacecraft and time machines. He's also a know-it-all, and he slavishly follows his food-and-sleep clock (which is why people used to call me 'Skalman').
Anyone has experiences with Hostinger (https://www.hostinger.com) as web hosting service?
Q: web hosting
I want to move my blogs to systems I have better control over. I use a PHP based framework, some MySQL, and I need two or three domains/virtual hosts. I want direct shell access. I don't need much storage.
I have everything I need at the computer club at the university -- except for virtual hosts.
I don't want to self host. I don't know about modern services with virtual servers and stuff. I don't even know what I am looking for. Where can I find what I need?
The apocalypse is not imminent. It is already here.
"In annually sampled grasslands, biomass, abundance and number of species declined by 67%, 78% and 34%, respectively."
It's wet and snowing. Worst weather.
So, a few days ago, I went #dumpsterdiving, and found 10 pairs of ladies and mens underwear, sealed, in box. They weren't the cheap kind, but the more expensive one. I've also found (in no particular order on different nights): bedsheets, linen, pillows, pillowcases, ALL still unsealed in boxes/bags. I really don't get it. We talk about saving a planet, and we throw away things that are perfectly fine?
More XMPP experiences
I'm an old sysadmin (that's my alias @skalman) and I know I can fix this, but is it worth the effort? I want a communication platform that works out of the box, on phone, desktop and web.
More XMPP experiences
Since yesterday, I have tried to communicate with @Linuxtjej over #XMPP. It's... complicated. Using #Dino, #Conversations and #ChatSecure concurrently, we never seem to be able to send a message to each other that is readable on all devices, because #OMEMO keys does not seem to be properly exchanged. Not to mention group chats! And making notifications work on an iPhone seems like a mystery.
