Migrating from ownCloud 9.1 to NextCloud 9.0

Submitted by Tha-Fox on 2016-08-03

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.

Installing geshi filter

Submitted by Tha-Fox on 2013-10-14

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.

Starting to make some changes to the site

Submitted by Tha-Fox on 2013-08-22

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.

Growing RAID array

Submitted by Tha-Fox on 2013-07-12

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.
