…life needs a bit of a shake up.
So, with a bit of effort we have recovered almost everything from the server – everything except the little blog which was serving as the occasional brain dump of ideas and thoughts, rants, and vaguely philosophical musings.
Which is still stored on the disc, it is just I feel little motivation for the effort of digging through and restoring the wordpress backup. One, maybe two of the articles were interesting enough to save. It is easier, from this remove, to think of them as ephemera, however eidetic the internetverse may be feeling as regards my humble droppings.
Anyway, we have a new OS, one or two of the sites are nearly new, one or two additional scripts have been wedged onto a server which is already somewhat over-blessed with content and service apps. There are new device apps available to maximize some of these – for nextCloud, Piwigo (clients for Windows, Mac, Android, Linux, iOS…), WordPress…
We have several projects in beta testing, including media streaming, an unlimited/private webmail service, and distributed social networking. And we would like to hear from you regarding these and a possible forum-style site – if you are interested – and any other service you think our family/friends might need or use.
