I started the year with a big month of problem solving. Nothing really exciting, I mostly did home maintenance: cleaning, DIY, hard drive replacement, archiving, power supply replacement, setting up a home server, making better backups for all devices at home, centralizing family photo albums, converting media, etc... etc... It was a bit of a never-ending rabbit hole once you started down it. But a pleasant one, because all the various little improvements were immediately rewarding.

I would feel very represented by Pepper dual-wielding hungry rabbits (or beavers) while facing an army of thundering yaks to shave 😏️

Now that I think of it, there was some prior art expressing the overall concept, using a different type of rodent to face a bunch of henchmen (and a cow)… in case this helps: youtu.be/4bAPlP2HX7o?t=107

oh! How did you solve the family photo albums? I’ve been looking for a good and Open solution for that..

@BartV Hey, yes. It was long: I had 5 sources, 24K photos, and archive up to 1900. All albums were merged, all files renamed+metadatas (with exiftool). Then I made a home server Debian + Nextcloud (docker) with the Nextcloud app "Memories". My phone and the one of my wife received an external SD card, and I sync now the 24K photos on all devices (our computers, phones).
I lost a lot of time because of bugs (eg. Trying Ubuntu serv + Nextcloud Snap), or testing galleries without exif date support.

which backup software are you using, I use kbackup. I'm also having issues with the PSU, will probably buy a new one.

@mhunt Hey! I tried all backup software with a GUI, but none of them was simple enough for me (for launching it, for deciding a source/dest, for accessing the data).

I finally made a bash script with rsync following this great blog post: earlruby.org/2013/05/creating- The author even share a full script in the comment here earlruby.org/2013/05/creating- . Mine is just this a bit rewritten. I exectute it with apps.kde.org/kcron/ daily now during lunch hours. So far, I'm happy about it.

What hardware are you using for the home server? I've been wanting to set one up but I don't know what to use.

@thomy2000 That was a long quest: I wanted something cheap, that doesn't consume a lot, fanless (no sound), and with a bios that can reboot auto after a power cut without pressing a button. I choosed a Asus PN41 asus.com/us/displays-desktops/ , I found one for 265€ on a website selling refurbished hardware. I'm happy about it so far. I hope it will have a long life being always connected and runing hidden under my desk. πŸ™‚

Sounds interesting. I've been looking for good, efficient hardware for a while but finding something that will stay reliable and easy to maintain isn't easy. The fact that it can resume after power loss sounds interesting. Even less maintenance that way.
