    So here is an interesting one. What Linux Distro would I be able to install on a 1GB HDD, for just a web browser? Its a rather tight fit, and even a Debian minimal install won't fit.

    Hmm, I think 2018 started almost two weeks ago ago... *blink*

    Power went out last night for 6 hours. Its amazing and sad how dependent we are on Electricity.
    I would like to be less dependent on the "Grid", but milking 120 cows twice a day would be a bit difficult to do by hand, let alone cool the milk quickly.

    Compiling OpenWRT for a device takes *forever*. Who would think it takes 3 hours to compile a 3.5mb file. o_O

    Social Media feels like a never ending "Rat Race"...
    Everyone is trying to create a false cover for their life in hope of impressing their friends, and at the same time it takes away from their real life and real day-to-day friends.
    And all it leaves us with is nothing and a longing for more.

    This is quite a neat home "cloud" solution. Hopefully they live up to their claims. I wonder if it has a SSD or a HDD inside... https://daplie.com/

    I wish it were that easy to set stuff up manually. :P

    Not sure what #openmailbox was thinking...
    pushing a huge upgrade without giving anyone a clue it was going to happen or what the changes would be, taking days to finish it, still not finishing it, and allowing users to access it not properly working. No IMAP support on free plan, no email filters, JS overloaded site, no cheap plans, lack of user settings for things, no more Owncloud hosting...

    I'm probably forgetting things, but oh well, you get the idea. I want my email back!

    Just installed a Owncloud instance that is accessible from the WWW... kinda scared that i don't have it locked down properly because of how simple the install is. Its too simple... o_O

    Hmm, finally starting to get my brain around using Millis to trigger code in arduino... its really cool, but a bit dificult to get my brain around. Also realizing that the microcontroller cannot do more than one task at once. If its fading an LED, it cannot do anything else untill that LED has fully faded. Maybe its just my problem. :-p

    Its quite amazing how IPV6 DNS configuration settings will update in seconds, where IPV4 takes hours if not days. Maybe its just me...

    The countdown begins for Windows 7's life... 3 years to go. It has till January 14, 2020.
    That actually brings it quite close to when Debian Jessie reaches EOL. Interesting.
    Oh well, enough rambling.
