Recently, I've been busy preparing various directories for additional archiving in Linux (it's about files from the /var/log/ location) containing archives of reports of performed operations in the system and running programs (services such as www etc.). Since I often use archiving to RAR format, I decided to see if it would work in this case as well.

I wrote a script that installs Nextcloud package (an alternative to other disk services in the so-called cloud), in Debian 11 (Linux). To work it requires only a clean system, everything will install and configure itself (so that it works on the local network, the operation outside must be configured by the user).
Here is the link: Nextcloud Debian Installer
It was created as a result of the fun with creating an audio track for a video.
Today I had the opportunity to update the firmware of the Mellanox ConnectX-3 card, and I thought I'd give a closer look at the process (it should work for previous ConnectX series card models as well).

To lighten the atmosphere, I've recently made this – somewhat filmic – piece. Feel invited:
I prepared new scripts package, that will install colorful and nice motd (message of the day) with some system informations.
MOTD is generated with scripts, that will be extracted to /etc/profile.d where you may modify them to suite your needs.
fail2ban and docker stats will not be shown if user do not have correct permissions for that.
The script runs on EL based Linux systems ie: RedHat, CentOS, RockyLinux, Fedora etc.
You may find more info here: MOTD dla EL
A new script for CentOS 8 was introduced in the projects, which is used to install and configure additional software and system to allow serving the website.
The script installs and pre-configures things like web server, database server, PHP interpreter.

I published a script that executes the installation of UNMS (Ubiquiti Network Management System) on CentOS 8 Linux / RHEL 8, despite the lack of support for those distribution by the manufacturer.
Installation manual and download link can be found in projects – "UNMS / UISP for CentOS 8 Linux installation script".
Some time ago I came up with an idea to move some folders on a Windows computer to another (bigger) drive. From that moment Corel (CorelDraw or Corel PHOTO-PAINT) welcomed me with a message:
Please reconnect the device that has the file is location, or choose a new folder. In the meantime, content will be saved in the Corel default location. You can move the content after the file location is restored.

Some time ago I bought a small portable speaker (i.e. one with a battery), which is used to play sound from my laptop or phone, and occasionally a TV set. I was looking for good middle and low frequencies. Before the purchase, I compared in one of the stores several devices of this type: Marshall Kilburn II, JBL Charger 4 and Xtreme 2, Sony XB43 and XB41. The test consisted in playing music from two phones connected via Bluetooth to two different devices at once. The same song was played, more or less in half, and subjectively Marshall did the best job for me. An additional advantage is the fact that it does not shine on the front, and the construction seems to be very good quality.
