1. 2022-05-10 Change of email service provider

    I've changed my email service provider to Migadu from Google Gsuite.

    After 2 years, I've found I paid too much for email hosting.

    I also used storage provided by gsuite for backup purposes, fortunately never needed to use it.

    Migration of my emails was easy.

    Changed over DNS settings with …

  8. Debian Jessie(8) end of life

    Special release

    Jessie was my first version of Debian I've installed on my acer laptop back in 2015.

    Nowadays, all my things run Buster, but it's still awful to think how fast time goes and Debian releases come and go.
