We’re closing down, for good.

I chose WordPress as my option due to pricing limitations, and boy was I wrong. Without business tier plans, I can’t do what I want (and that’s a bummer). This blog will cease to exist once the plan rolls out and is completed, and I will migrate away from a hosted website to something else,…

GNUCash. Its awesome.

Now I am no financial guru when it comes to matters pertaining to financial solutions (or am I?), but I’m quite content with GNUCash. GNUCash, for me, is a simple management solution for finances that extends past the capacity of using Excel as your budget tracker (not that you should do that). The reason I enjoy…

After a year of Windows, we’re back!

So, tonight I’ve decided it’s time to take a break from gaming (yes, that’s the reason why this blog has been dead for months) and get back into a bit of coding, system automation (via the use of coding, obvs) and Linux. Yes, that’s right; it’s back, the superior Operating System/Platform is back. Apart from Discord…

My New Backup Policy

It’s been a while since I shared with you why backups and me do not mesh, and I even went as far as asking cloud services to encrypt my data for me. Today (well, it’s actually 1am in the morning, so this morning) I am going to share with you a slightly improved versioning of my backup methods.…

Let’s chat about how you chat.

In the modern day, there are a plethora of instant-messaging applications at disposal to allow you to communicate, send photos and videos, and share your location with family and friends. The same is true about the Government housing all this data. So, I thought I’d add some context as to what you can do to improve…

EncFS; easy, fast and reliable?

Implementing a secure file-system in current-day computing is an imperative function, especially with Crypto attacks on the rise. My personal method to ensuring data integrity on a Linux Box is EncFS (you may prefer GEncFSM). EncFS is a Free (LGPL) FUSE-based cryptographic filesystem. It transparently encrypts files, using an arbitrary directory as storage for the encrypted files. EncFS uses an encrypted and…
