I like to follow news sources using RSS, as it’s an open standard, properly federated, and it’s the most convenient way to read and track these sorts of sites. Unfortunately NT Gov hasn’t got RSS […]

“How I got a Feature Before I Even Asked for It” or “Open Source is Awesome”

To backup my server I uses a tool called restic (https://restic.net/) – It’s great. I’ve recently been testing out using MEGA (https://mega.io/) as the backend storage for my backups, and to integrate that with restic, you use rclone (https://rclone.org/) as a storage driver.
