Pinned toot

Time for an !

I live in Canada, born and raised. I've lived in a tiny town, a large city, and a medium sized city, in that order. I think the medium sized city is my favourite.

I've been exploring computers and systems since an early age and over the past decade or so I've started putting more emphasis on privacy, security, obscurity, self expression, and how those things can be supported or hindered by technology. I'm not a professional coder but I've taken a few years of school focused on programming and computers in general. My main source of income isn't directly programming but it sure is made easier by knowing how to tell computers what to do for me!

The past few years have been filled with raising my two young kids, Python, Java, Raspberry Pi, home networking, reducing my internet footprint, securing my home network, etc etc etc, ad nauseum.

Anyway, I'm glad to be here with you fine entities, I hope to learn and share lots! I'm very easy going, so if you ever have any questions or comments, or if I do something that rubs you the wrong way, please let me know!

Phytoremediation is the practice of detoxifying an environment through several techniques, using living plants.

Some types of phytoremediation include:
• Extraction (plants pulling contaminants from soil and water via their root systems)
• Stabilisation (reducing the mobility of contaminants in the soil)
• Degradation (removing organic pollutants and breaking them down through plant metabolism)
• Stimulation (helping microbial activity in the soil to improve degredation of organic pollutants)

Je compulse la doc de #Nextcloud en ce moment et je vois qu'elle propose de faire l'installation sur plusieurs OS.

Par curiosité, sur quel OS as tu fait ou comptes faire l'installation de ton #nextcloud ?

Boost appréciés.

@mdbekhit For a free 5GB #nextcloud instance, check out cloud.owncube.com.

Man, the debugging logs in are pretty good! Took me a minute to find the log directories (Ubuntu snap install) but once I did they were comprehensive. Thanks!
