I just want Samba media server and Dropbox-style file server (Nextcloud) with reliable/secure file storage (protected against drive loss, corruption, accidental deletions, with disk encryption) on trusted hardware.
Is that so much to ask without a bunch of hoop jumping?

5 years ago I enjoyed setting up new servers, getting them how I wanted them, with backups, redundancy, encryption, and all my desired services etc.
Now I'm just filled with 'ugh.'

Well, 3 years to the week since drive 1/4 failed in my home server's RAID10, drive 3/4 has just failed, and my server's dead. I have backups from this week, so no data loss. Just the kick I needed to migrate to the replacement under my desk.

What do people use for animation instead of Adobe Flash these days? I was discussing animation with a friend just now and it occurs to me I have no idea what the current options are. (I'm thinking making short animated videos with custom characters.)

Got my quarterly sexual health check and PrEP prescription today. The doctor was a little rough during my blood test and I have a nice bruise now, but it was otherwise pretty painless! Regular checkups for some of… instagram.com/p/B1DmAPOHrXV/?i

Thinking about the boundaries of a sex worker/client relationship this morning, and what it feels like when a client is indicating they are developing feelings for their worker.

Download and upload speeds before and after switching to NBN. Slower downloads, but significantly more consistent. I guess I'm relatively satisfied with this.

This one's gonna hurt tomorrow! Probably pushed myself a bit far even though my pace was fairly slow. Oh well, guess we'll see! ift.tt/2KJkBGr

Ok, @Qantas@twitter.com, how the fuck are you supposed to enter your details “exactly as they appear on the passport that will be used for your trip” if you don’t even list all the possible values for gender on a passport.
Fix your shit.

Hey, @TilerSupport@twitter.com, these dollar amounts don't appear to add up :P

Hey team! I'm looking for remote work at the moment in the realms of composition, sound design and audio implementation, or anything related to that knowledge.
Hit me up if you get any of that going, or you want a chat :)
Sharing appreciated.

Googling whether it is illegal to be gay in any of the places I will be visiting on this trip. The news is not good in re: Singapore!
