@solderpunk Howdy. Wanted to suggest an edit to the orientation file if I could be so bold. In 2.1.2 Troubleshooting it could be mentioned for sftp only users that if there are having permissions problems they could transfer files with the command sftp put -p filename so transferred file has permissions of the destination directory. Tiny thing but might help someone. Ta!

Night night fediverse, see you tomorrow.

Thanks to the generosity of @solderpunk I've got a new gopherspace on gopher://circumlunar.space which I've now got to pull my finger out & use. Planning on doing weekly posts.

Why do our users insist on using the Libraries in Windows Explorer to save or open files? Causes nothing but bother in the long run it seems. Is there a way to disable it?

Totally forgot but I saw an Apple Maps car the other day and it looked like it was doing an Apple version of Google's streetview.

It's Freshers Week on campus and a colleague found this list a new student had dropped. At least they got their priorities right!
