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.
I skipped the article but was quite taken by this comment from here :
> According to this article just 5% of the world’s power plants account for almost three-quarters of carbon emissions from electricity generation.
> I think this may be one of the most encouraging bits of news about AGW that I've seen in a long time. 5% of electric power plants (about 1500 plants) is a lot, but it's a manageable lot. This gives us a clearly defined area of attack with a very high ROI. It seems to say: if we're going to get serious about saving ourselves, start here and go all in. The paper lists the top 10 polluting plants... unsurprisingly many of them are in China and India, but at least one is in Germany. If Germany wants to set an example, there's where to start.
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). Such a sheet could make it easier for people to self host. Or is that already available ?
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 ?

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).
