If you'd like to mirror files (in my case, web app accepting file upload) between two servers, what would you use on #FreeBSD? HAST, minio, ceph, ... something else?

You're in lockdown and can't stand the boredom? Download and read a DRM-free copy of my DNS book, and you'll never complain about isolation again. ;-) mens.de/:/book

FreeNAS Hardware Guide
In celebration of the upcoming FreeNAS 11.3 release, we have brought together the wisdom of our engineering staff and top blog posts to produce the first comprehensive FreeNAS Hardware Guide to complement the official hardware requirements and the community’s highly-detailed Hardware Recommendations Guide.

Wanna break free from #Google?


Here are some recommendations:

Instead of #gmail, I use #disroot (disroot.org). with #k9 (k9mail.github.io) and #thunderbird (thunderbird.net) as clients.
Instead of #google search, I use #searx (Searx instances), #duckduckgo (duckdukgo.com), and #startpage (startpage.com).
Searx instance FuckOffGoogle.de has the most suggessive name. 😀
I recommend setting it as a default search engine on publicly used computers (at your school, work place, internet caffees, etc.) 😉
Instead of #youtube, I use #peertube (joinpeertube.org) and #invidious (Invidious Instances).
I also use #firefox #addon PeerTubeify to get redirected to peertube if a #video is available from there.
Instead of #googleplus, I use #diaspora (diasporafoundation.org).
Instead of #chrome, I use #icecat (Icecat), #firefox (Firefox), and #tor #browser (torproject.org).
Instead of #chromeos, I use #Parabola #GNU #linux-libre (parabola.nu) and #linuxmint (linuxmint.com).
Instead of google #calendar, I use #nextcloud / #owncloud calendar (nextcloud.com).
Instead of #googledrive, I use #nextcloud and #syncthing (syncthing.net)
Instead of google forms, I use Framaforms.
It is only available in French, which unfortunately I don't speak, but that does not stop me from regularly using it. B-)
Instead of doodle, I use Framadate.
Instead of #android, I use #replicant OS (replicant.us) on a Technoethical S3 phone.
#FSFE has a good website freeyourandroid.org about liberating your device.
Instead of #googleplay, I use #F-Droid (f-droid.org).
If you want to reach all apps from Google Play, I recommend #yalp store (YalpStore), but be warned that most of the apps there are not #free-software.
Instead of #googlemaps, I use #openstreetmap (openstreetmap.org).
Instead of google street view, I use #mapillary (mapillary.com).
For text #chat, I use #xmmp with my #disroot account, with pix-art messanger #fork of #conversations (Conversations) on mobile and gajim on desktop.
For video chat, I use #jitsi (jitsi.org).
#Framasoft and #diroot offers plenty of other great services. See degooglisons-internet.org/en/l… and disroot.org/en/#_white-bar
Finally, I recommend you to spread/share your desire, successes and difficulties (both online and offline) of getting free from Google and #GAFAM ( #Google, #Apple, #Facebook, #Amazon, #Microsoft) in general.

What did I missed? What is you favourite alternative? and why? #freesoftware #foss #floss #open-source #opensource #linux #gnu-linux #fdroid #technoethical #mobile #software #privacy #surveillance #freedom disroot.org/en/services/email

Project Trident 19.08 is now available: project-trident.org/post/2019-
This includes the XFCE desktop and the "vesa" driver fixes from FreeBSD

Listening to a great episode of #BSDNow where they discuss #FreeBSD, #OpenBSD, and even #ZIL along with other goodies. Be sure to give it a listen! 👍👍👍

The iXsystems TrueCommand looks really interesting for managing and instances.
