Hey there, Are you new to these parts of the internet? If you are, then allow me to be your guide in helping you understand what Mixster really is and why this little corner of the web has become an integral part of who I am and the work I have been doing in open-source over the years. There’s a free ice-cream waiting for you in the end. Read on!
This generation’s social media consumption (read addiction) is exponentially increasing. It’s getting more & more diverse as time goes on and the dopamine hit wears off. I am part of this generation. It’s me, I am the problem, it’s me.
While we make bad choices with our private data to stay connected, I wanted to prepare and safeguard my data. Hence, yet another blog in the Future Vipul series on backing your “virtual life” hosted on popular “potentially secure” social media platforms.
It’s 2022, and companies still aren’t equipped to handle incidents better.
Incidents can be best defined as a breakdown of a well-oiled machine running on code in a carefully spun environment using complex configurations. Folks in the industry, developers, and customers alike know it all too well. An undesirable phenomenon so common these days that even after years of development, we haven’t figured out how to deal with it adequately. This post is not about how to solve incidents better but handle them well at least publically.
Back in April, my friend sent me this message on Instagram. And two weeks later, after rushed planning, I was on my way to finally cover these two cities. We cramped so much into this 10-day trip with so little planning that the satisfaction and exhaustion were well worth the effort. Here’s what we did, how things were planned, tips, and essentially me documenting my journey to help others plan their time in the City of Gold.
This is to document some rsync commands, a bash script here and there, and explain to Future Vipul how the backup strategy works for Vipul’s system. Future Vipul is a series on Mixster that I work on to document guides that I need again and again as I work. I firmly believe if even one person gets the help from this guide apart from me in the future then it has served its purpose. I continuously update this guide with more information as my own learning grows and I hope to see you down in the comments if you would like to contribute as well. I wrote my previous Future Vipul guide last year about dual-booting.
Fritzing is an open-source initiative to develop amateur or hobby CAD software for the design of electronics hardware, to support designers and artists ready to move from experimenting with a prototype to building a more permanent circuit. I recently started using it. The initiative has made the software pay-to-download but the source code is still open-source. This guide will take you through building Fritzing on a Debian based operating system and will require you to have a fair amount of Linux experience. If you don’t and have questions, feel free to post them below in the comments. Happy to help.
