Yikes. I don't have enough money for rent this month.

How the heck do c++ streams work anyway. Are they even a real thing or the syntax magic.

Started cooking a bit more seriously. I'm gonna share the recipes on my website and probably blog about it. Its quite a bit of fun. I didn't take pictures but ill add them when i make these the dishes again. (Probably next week)

I've written up two recipes, both desserts:
Moong ka Halva and
Rice kheer.

Both super easy to make. Ill upload them when i have access to the internet.

Bonus: they are markdown files and im gonna keep them in an open directory so you can wget them in bulk.

The Ethernet Port on my Galago Pro might have stopped working... Thats not good.

I'm going with Block storage. Its much cheaper and faster.

Even though Object storage has pretty good transfer speeds, the latency kills it for nextcloud use.

Digital Ocean allows gradually scaling the storages, so I'm really only paying 50 cents this months, and i'll increase it as i slowly transfer the data back.

Yikes. The ObjectStorage is not holding up well at all.
I've got three options now

1. Stick to Digital Oceans which costs $5 for 250GB per month.

2. Switch to Wasabi Object Storage Which is $6 for a Terabyte per month. (And i think it allows scaling down, so i'll just use 100GB or something)

3. Just use Digital Ocean's block storage which is $5 for 50GB (and honestly enough for now. I only have 2GB on the server since i moved everything to a offline HDD)

I'd love an Always online machine to do some data hoarding... Sucks that i have to keep moving every few months :/

I guess that'll have to wait till fall.

Okay... Maybe Object storage is a bit too slow for use with nextcloud... It's making so progress in terms of sync. Maybe its the first sync thats why?

Lets see. If the first sync works well, i'll move the files i need synced quickly on local storage and archival files on the object storage.

I'm thinking of starting a video mini series that educates parents (and a subset of adults that look after children) on the ins and outs of parenting their child in a world where social media is so prevalent.

What topics/realms of interest would you like to see covered if I were to do such a thing?

Is this something you'd be willing to support financially/donate to? I would be doing it with or without funding, though funding would allow me to make it a little more polished.

Also, My arch install isn't working too well with my laptop (S76 Galago Pro). Having networking problems.
Gonna switch to Manjaro i3 Edition.

So, I'm migrating my nextcloud instance to digital ocean. Giving it a dedicated droplet and connected it to Object storage. Tired of moving stuff to my hard drive because I ran out of space on the server. Im gonna have 250GB storage for just $5 a month. Its high latency but its good enough.

Today I realized we already live in a dystopia.

Semester ended. Spent $15000 and learned absolutely nothing useful.

Does any one know about Scholarships in the US for international students? I can't find any that I'm eligible for. Most give $1000 to one student out of thousands. And pretty much every one of them require writing essay on their product or something (I'm really bad at Essays)

I just lost two hundred dollars (Someone stole it out of my wallet) and a phone worth $80...

I'm fucking up real bad. Need to earn this back.

What the fuck is up with phones being locked to specific carriers in the US.

Also, turns out I wasn't banned from Lunduke's bbs. The BBS just went down.

Okay So i set up my BBS and the reverse proxy to it!
Its live on telnet://
(on port 23 and 9000)
I'll start adding more stuff to it over the weekend. The cool thing is MysticBBS supports NNTP, FTP, and POP3 so i can basically access the BBS from thunderbird for quick updates.

I've been looking into BBSes a lot these days. Lunduke's BBS is a lot of fun to be in and its really easy to use too. Its something that I can use in 2019 as long as other people are using it too.

I was planning on setting up my own BBS, but i just want be be able to communicate with other BBSes through it. Lets see if i can figure this out. I'm using Mystic BBS
