Does It Make Sense To Self-Host Mail Server?

    πŸ“‚ Email,Internet     # ,     πŸ—¨ No Comments

I have operated hashemian.com for over 2 decades now, earlier on hosted servers and eventually on my own server. During that time the domain has also been email capable, accepting and delivering emails sent to/from addresses such as [email protected] This was also originally hosted but was eventually ported to my own server.

Building New PHP 7.3 on Old Fedora 14 Linux

    πŸ“‚ Uncategorized     # , ,     πŸ—¨ No Comments

I have mentioned before this server runs on old hardware and Fedora Core 14. That’s a 9-year-old OS which in terms of software, it’s like 3 times its life expectancy at this point.

    πŸ“‚ Internet     #     πŸ—¨ No Comments

Nowadays many people know of IP addresses.

With GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) being in full force since May 25, 2018, one must assume that the privacy and security of users are now fully protected. I think it’s an understatement to call that claim an over-exaggeration. GDPR is a European regulation designed to protect the privacy of European citizens, giving them full — Continue reading Β»

Google Finance Unusable Design

    πŸ“‚ Financial,Google     # ,     πŸ—¨ No Comments

Sometimes one wonders if giant companies like Google ever think about their end users when they redesign their properties.
