Doing backups the easy way. Plugin your USB drive and let the Pika do the rest for you.
Setup new backup repositories or uses existing ones
Create backups locally and remote
Save time and disk space because Pika Backup does not need to copy known data again
Encrypt your backups
List created archives and browse through their contents
Recover files or folders via your file browser
Pika Backup is powered by the well-tested borg-backup software.
Currently, scheduled backups are not supported. Excluding files from a backup via regular expressions and alike is not implemented yet. Pika Backup is designed to save your personal data and does not support complete system recovery.
Some time ago there was dismay on Mastodon (and Pleroma ?) instances about data scraping. Before that happened there were privacy concerned people automatically deleting their own toots, limiting them for example to the latest toots for thirty days. With Lemmy things are different since Lemmy is a link aggregator rather than micro blogging, and Mastodon has boost option (Called replay with Pleroma ?). However deleting your older comments (but not posts) automatically would be really nice for privacy reasons.
More and more software pops up, like https://bonfirenetworks.org/ and the hometown software of friend.camp admin. Is there an overview somewhere that shows the initial ideas, features and future wish-list features of Fediverse AP software ? For example, Pleroma seemed to have been started by coders who were fed up with some Mastodon restrictions (or bloat maybe). They have later build in ssh and gopher (and BBS alike) support.
Apart from this for my own curiosity it is an idea to make a comparison sheet for people who like to self host. For example, click on self host on VPS or SBC at home, then when the user clicks on SBC only light weight options would be shown (not Mastodon).
How to put UBO in medium mode ? I cannot figure this out from the docs. And how to disable or enable certain domains like one could do with the discontinued uMatrix, from animated *figs* this looks possible ?
I wasn't aware of this :(

Wow. The probably most popular on-line shop in Holland and Belgium is selling Linux laptops, with currently a choice of twenty laptops with Linux preinstalled, prices go from about 500 to over 3000 Euros. They usually partner with other companies to deliver the products. The names of these Linux laptops companies were unknown to me till today.
(Not wanting to "spam" in favor of them, only wanting to share this development, but if you want to fact check, try "linux laptop kopen" without the "" in Duckduckgo, and choose Belgium for country, and you will probably see that big name as the first hit).
Read about this in mainstream news. Hard to believe and scary how many websites were unreachable due to this. In Holland three banks, the railway company and the national police websites were among them. "Internet expert Bert Hubert" wrote (On Nitter) that he was very surprised as Akamai is known to never gone down so far. More comments here : https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=27920665
