So I did it … I now have managed hosting … #cloudways #linode

For the last several years of all of my business ventures I handled management of my hosting myself. My hosting has changed companies depending on my needs, bouncing from Linode, Digital Ocean, Chicago VPS, and back to Linode. And I've used multiple control panels,...

Set ownership of all #CyberPanel users’ web folders

The last time I wrote about this, I was a VestaCP user. I've since upgraded my VPS to CyberPanel, which I'll discuss in a future post. Either way, I *STILL* work on my websites as a root user on my VPS. When I copy over WordPress or other files they retain root...

When I decided to start testing Odoo two weeks ago, I decided that instead of Linode's $10/month 1 GB RAM KVM SSD VPS, I would shop for something a little more inexpensive. I could've gone with DigitalOcean's $5/month 512 MB RAM droplet, but during my shopping around...

#TVShowTime vs #Goodreads vs #MyFitnessPal … or Steve vs Wasted Time

Recently I installed an app called TVShowTime to keep track of what episodes I'm on of the shows that I watch, so I don't miss anything. I noticed after a few check-ins that it shows totals for the time you've spent on these shows. I began getting curious for how much...
