I got an HP OfficeJet 7500A Wide Format printer for free and decided to try it out. It is a wireless printer and every operating system I'm using (Arch Linux, MacOS and Windows 10) worked without a hitch except for one thing: printing. I thought I would face problems with Arch and scanning over network but the only problem was paper mismatch.
I noticed that one of my packages from AUR didn't want to upgrade itself. After a while I noticed that archlinuxfr repository had an older version of the package. For some odd reason I decided it was time to try some other AUR helper and ended up installing pacaur.
The installation was very easy because I had yaourt already installed.
After I read about Frank Karlitschek leaving ownCloud, Inc. and creating Nextcloud, I've been pondering whether I should migrate to Nextcloud or continue using ownCloud. The latter has been working for me just fine except the Music app, which I've replaced with Youtube. As a home user, the enterprise features aren't my concern, either.
I have many posts that include lines from configuration files. I have previously used custom CSS to make those lines more readable. Now as I migrated to Drupal I wanted more generally used solution. I found some discussion around this theme from here: http://drupalmotion.com/article/syntax-highlighting-drupal After taking some time to familiarize myself with the matter it was an easy decision to choose GeSHi. It is perhaps a bit of an overkill for my needs but I have some spare CPU cycles and hard disk megabytes so why not.
I finally made my decision and Drupal is my platform of choice. I could have gone with the Wordpress as I thought in the beginning but then again I believe that if I at some point want to do other content than blogging then Drupal is more versatile.
The site needs to be renewed. The reason for this change is to write posts in English too, as that would require more custom code and I don't have time for that right now. To save my time I've decided to go for CMS. I'm pondering between Joomla, Drupal and Wordpress. Each of them seems to have their own pros and cons but right now it seems that the Wordpress will be my choice due to rapid deployment and lots of plugins to choose from.
It's sad but true that the need for hard disk capacity grows at least as fast as the disk sizes, maybe even faster. I've personally experienced this with my new camera that produces photos that are about four times the size of the older photos. Recently when I checked the free space status my /home was 94% full and most of the space was taken by photos. Then I decided that it was time for me to learn growing RAID array.
