How to remove Google from your life?

Mon, 2017-11-20 10:29

The headline is pretty straightforward. I just got a Pixel 2 and the fluidity and convenience of Google's ecosystem feels amazing.

But this year I began to realize how disturbing it is to give into a company that makes money selling your behavior. I just watched Citizenfour and realized I have to at least try something. Frankly, I don't think I'll stick with it.

But how do you replace Gmail? Autosaving Google Docs? Google Photos? And most importantly, how do I replace my Android device? I think I'll just have to accept the fact that there is no real solution and have to compromise certain electronic conveniences in my life.

Short question: Is there a WineDB-like database for Lutris scripts?

Mon, 2017-11-20 10:06

Browsing this sub lately and saw that some of us here have Lutris scripts to install games. I was wondering where did you guys get the scripts from.

Locked out of LFCS exam due to typo in sudoers file! Was that just bad luck?

Mon, 2017-11-20 04:07

After working for three n half years as Systems support specialist I decided to give my first Linux certification exam, I was attempting free retake of LFCS(Linux Foundation Certified System Administrator) because I couldn't make it in first time, at question 20 it was assigning sudo permissions to a user and I added to a file in /etc/sudoers.d/ and saved the file. I realized after that I had a typo in file and it was too late at that time because I sudo plugin was unable to parse that file and I was left with no Sudo permissions. I asked for the root password to Procter but they didn't know. I had around 40mins left for 7 questions to do which were really easy but I had no permissions to do pretty much anything to answer any more question!! I guess just being really unlucky.

Linux flavours in businesses

Mon, 2017-11-20 00:02

I'm often seeing jobs advertise that they use linux in their production systems, which is great, but there's always a something in brackets following it. For example "(centos)"

Why are places getting so hung up on a specific distro of linux being on their systems ?
