Working in your Homeoffice - Part II

Terminal Server - A look back The second part of the home office series is about terminalservers. The concept is quite old and we can’t avoid a short excursion into the past: It leads us back to the late 40s and 50s of the last century right to the beginnings of computer history.

Nextcloud Backup with tar

Installing a Nextcloud instance is a snap. There are numerous tutorials and, on better NAS systems or hosting providers, even ready-to-use appliances that can be easily clicked together. When it comes to data backup, my observation is that the sources are rather limited and I would rather not use the few manuals that are available on the net.
