1. Offline remote backups

    I've got 1.1 TB of data that I mirror and backup every single day. This is data that would cripple me, either professionally or emotionally, if lost. No, it doesn't contain the bloated dvdrip collection I made since we've found we rarely use it at all ...

  2. Javascript, PHP, Python. Pain.

    Ever since I suffocated my dreams of being an indie game developer about a year ago and left (was chased out) to pursue other interests (ran like a yellow bellied coward) I've been dealing mostly with data analysis / content discovery. In fact, I recently stealth-launched the first site to ...

  8. Opt out of prism

    Time goes by, people forget or ignore the fact that everything they do online is stored, analysed and read by foreign governments. Maybe because it's too inconvenient to prevent or maybe because they think "well, I have nothing to hide, what do I care if they read my e-mail ...

  9. Old games in wine

    Hello, my name is Anders. And I'm an old-game-aholic. A common complaint in gaming under linux is that games simply don't run there, a fact that has become incorrect in the last few years as all of my favorite games have native linux clients. But what about older ...
