Regarding Google Drive:Hi all! After some years checking the development of the Pyra, and being very interested in the project, I finally made my pre-order yesterday
I really love the philosophy behind the Pyra: being open, having replaceable parts, being both computer and handheld console. I am however not the best with informatic-related stuff to be honest, and have 0 experience with linux (although I am very willing to learn). Therefore, I would like to ask some specific questions regarding uses I would like to have on the Pyra:
1- I am a language nerd and on my pc I make customizable keyboards to use special symbols, especially Norse related (e.g. ǫ, þ, ᚠ) or IPA symbols. How good is unicode support and to switch between keyboard configurations on the Pyra?
2- I use google drive a lot to share documents between my computers, mostly pdfs and office related (presentations, excel sheets, word processors). Are there good alternatives that would work for Pyra and a windows pc?
3- I've seen many people can easily code on the Pyra, mostly thanks to the good keyboard. Are there good Python and Julia environments and interfaces that can be installed on the pyra? Like anaconda, pycharm, jupyter, spyder etc. What about the use of dabases like sqlite?
4- I plan to use my Pyra also to watch TV/youtube/play music now and then. How well do you think it will be possible to use mainstream services like netflix, watch national TV, youtube, spotify? Probably it should be decent on firefox, but I am not sure.
I believe that's it so far, thank you very much in advance, you seem like a very nice community
PS: sorry for the very noobie questions
Yes, it's really convenient.Yeah, Nextcloud is amazing. And you can usually install it on the cheapest webhosting packages available from most hosting companies.
And the install of Nextcloud doesn't even involve any technical skill with most standard hosting companies. You ge a Cpanel account (control panel for managing your account, emails, dns, installing php based apps, etc), and with one click you install Nextcloud and set your default username/password and you are done.
More people should know about this.
Awesome. I used to be a Kopano reseller. One of the best email systems I have ever administered.Yes, it's really convenient.
On Hetzner, the installation is even easier as it is already done for you and you got full admin rights to install Add-Ons.
But I've got a VM Cluster online, which I administrate myself and a VM Nextcloud host, Collabora Host, Rocket Chat, Jitsi and Kopano on different VMs.
Proxmox is great. I use it at nearly all of my clients and in different cluster setups.I host my Nextcloud on a server sitting in the corner of my dining room, running Proxmox and two VMs.
Yeah, Kopano and Zimbra both.Awesome. I used to be a Kopano reseller. One of the best email systems I have ever administered.
Just install a low voltage, fanless PC with Proxmox and integrate it in the cluster, then you won't loose quorum.I have four nodes in my cluster, one of which has a VM that acts as my gaming PC. Only two nodes stay on all the time so during the night I often lose quorum.
Okay, I'll have to save up for that. Thanks for the tip! I wouldn't have thought of that.Just install a low voltage, fanless PC with Proxmox and integrate it in the cluster, then you won't loose quorum.
A litte N4000 Intel box or stuff like that does wonders in that regard.
