I think I might try to start doing a little ‘Link Round Up’. It will just be a list of links. Mostly News, Tech, or Gaming that I think are interesting or worth sharing. Maybe add a comment to them, but keep it pretty light over all.
For now I am going to say it will be a weekly thing (Lets hope I remember).
I had a little chuckle when I read one of the release notes in the latest LibreELEC 9.0.0 Release.
Changeable SSH passwords and a default firewall configuration have been added to combat the increasing number of HTPC installs that can be found on the public internet. The increase is partly due to simple maths; our userbase has grown so the number of users inappropriately exposing their HTPC to the internet has also grown. The static password for libreelec is present on most/all password dictionary lists so it’s important we start encouraging users to change it (the first-run wizard will prompt when SSH is enabled).
That’s a really fancy way of saying “We have more people that don’t even know how to plug the thing in, let alone configure it.”
So I have had several other blogs over the years, the most successful of them has been MonsterHunterNews.com.
I still love to play the Monster Hunter games, but don’t nearly put as much time into them now. It’s a fair amount of work to keep that site current and up to date in the Monster Hunter News Scene. I have facebook pages, twitter, GNUSocial, Tumblr, YouTube, and who knows what else.. Its a very social driven site I guess..
I have been playing with the idea of dropping that blog and either just sitting on the domain, or sell the domain name. It has a ok ranking right now for a little known site. I don’t want to get into selling the content or the social groups, so would just delete all them.
Its hard when you have spent so much time doing something to stop doing it.. Even if you know its the right thing to do, you still feel like your giving up or walking away.
Would also like to just keep a minimal of online spaces to work in. I could post Monster Hunter stuff here if something really catches my fancy. Or just update casually on my progress in the game.
