  • Ubuntu 18 : Disable ssh root login

    After your initial setup of your Ubuntu 18 server, and that includes adding a couple of new users, including at least one super user that can sudo up, it’s time to prevent the root user from being able to login on ssh. The username is a default, and doesn’t have to be guessed. Note: Another…

  • Ubuntu 18 : Install nano text editor

    I’ve always preferred using nano over pico, and pico over vi, and vi for very low level file editing. Anyway: nano for most things. But it’s not installed by default on Ubuntu 18. And after getting a new VPS you probably have quite some configuration file editing to do, and in my blog posts I…

  • Ubuntu 18 : Add new super user

    Once you’ve ssh into the VPS as a root user, it’s time to add more users to the system. One for the day to day stuff, and one for server management related stuff. The first will be what we consider an unprivileged user, the other sometimes referred to as a sudo user. As user root,…

  • Ubuntu 18 lts : Barebone first login

    This is a small reminder that once you get a VPS with a provider (like RAMNode, etc) that you should not forget to do a few things. There’s of course the software (daemons, services, servers, tools, commands, etc) that you wish to install to get to your end goal (run a game server, or a…

  • mournfulness

    But not 12. I will carry you with me, Sasha, because you helped with the others to be one. “Before we were born we had no feeling; we were one with the universe. This is called “mind-only,” or “essence of mind,” or “big mind,” After we are separated by birth from this oneness, as the…

  • Happy birthday Sasha, you are 11 now.

    Geesh, I still remember when she curiously walked around the livingroom for the first time and jumped on my lap and gave me a cuddle. She was not even a year old. And now ten years later she is 11 and still giving me cuddles. She might be an old age kitty now, or at…

  • They’re just not willing to work on it

    and when the importance of the situation isn’t recognized, then either I am putting too much effort into it, or they’re not seeing where it can lead to. It sucks so much. The frustration of forcing yourself to get over something and lowering your guard just to get steps to moving forward, .. being rewarded…

  • Full Disk Encryption Please

    Before I begin, please note that this blog article is focussed on macOS, modern systems, and not a powerbook from 10 years ago, or a Windows 10 machine. Sorry. Let’s do this in two parts, one: Encrypt everything, this includes internal and external drives. And two: Have a backup duh. Let’s start with the backup,…

  • Auto make directories for each month

    Projects can come in any shape and form. From stuff for a friend, a screencast for tutorials, a blogisode or photoshoot. It doesn’t matter. They all have a few things in common: They take time to organize, because you have to import your data, process it, export it, archive it all and back it all…
