It’s a sad day. Well, it was a few days ago when I found out that the best WordPress Authentication Plugin (IMHO), Clef, was calling it quits.
I received an email from Jesse Pollak over at Clef:
I’m writing to inform you that starting today, we’ll be sunsetting the Clef product with a final shutdown date of 6/6 (official blog post here). Everything will remain fully functional and maintained until that date, at which point the mobile apps will cease functioning and be removed from the Google Play and Apple App stores.
Although technically it is the 2nd of January, as I just got off work a mear 2 hours ago, it still feels like the 1st to me. That being said, the 1st of January 2017 marks the 5th anniversary of the day I took the biggest risk of my life thus far.
5 years ago, I made the decision to change my life, to start a new, to throw away all the saftey nets, and take a leap of faith. 5 years ago today (yesterday for all of you date and time freaks) marks 5 years from the day I decided to leave behind my life in Ontario, and move to Quebec.
In my parent’s generation, the advent of the TV was the big hit, and maybe a phone in every home (or at least your own line instead of a party line). Our generation, well those born in the late 70’s and 80’s (I’m a 79er personally) we have seen a lot of development in the area of technology… Going from CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) TVs to Flat Screen LCD/LED TVs, having a computer in every home, and some small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, and of course, cell phone technology, going from the brick (My father had one) to smaller cell phones to the advent of the smartphone.
We all know how easy it is to set up software RAID1 during install… but what if you had to do it afterward? Say for instance you only had one HDD at the time and decided later on you wanted to add a second drive and make it into a Mirror. Well, this tutorial will show you how to add a second drive of the same size (very important that they be the same size!) and create a RAID on Ubuntu 16 after installation.
Hello Again folks,
Almost everyone today has an email account. Be it for business or personal correspondence, security can be an issue. Email itself, inherently, is insecure. Although you can connect to your email provider over TLS or SSL, that does not mean your email is encrypted, it just means your connection to the server is.
For those of you who read my blog, you know I am an avid fan, and user of cloud servers. For a limited time, my hoster, Vultr.com, is offering $20 worth of server time (4 months on the low-end $5/mth server). This is a great offer for techs who want to play around with Linux distros, its great for developers who what to test out the programs. I personally use their services to host my blog (I started off with the $5/month package).
