Our Blog about choosing, setting up and maintaining an internet server and other IT issues we encounter during our activities.

We initially make these pages for ourselves. By making a good note of everything you encounter during a migration, you avoid encountering the same problems next time. Or rather: that next time you make the same choices that (in retrospect) were unwise. Besides, maybe someone else can learn something from it too...

We keep track of this in the form of a blog. Technical language will be inevitable, and will usually not be explained. Server management is primarily a technical matter, which should be left to those who understand the technology.

At the top of each contribution is the date on which that contribution was posted. This also places the contributions in time. For example, if I write somewhere about certain software that it has a "steep learning curve", that is an opinion that I had at that point in time, not a recommendation that always applies to everyone. As an example, I couldn't imagine a life without Virtualmin now, while I had to take quite some time to discover that fact.
