Recently I had to sort some pictures before taking them to the print shop to be printed, so I decided why not mess around and hopefully learn something new in the process :D
New year, new website… again. But this one may be here to stay.
Solving a series of problems starting from an idea to a fully working system is why I love my work. It makes me happy.
This guide will require a few things.
- Plex - Just download plex and install it with your preferred package manager.
- Basic command line understanding; or not? - I will try to make this as much copy-paste as possible, but your config will vary. This will, of course, be a guide for Linux, but all of this should also be possible to do on Windows.
- Anime. Which you probably already have if you are looking at this :D
How many of you use Google Drive?
It’s integrated into Gmail, every attachment you open gets added to your GDrive, not to mention they share the space, so every file and email in Gmail also goes against your 15GB cap.
Google regularly scans and data mines every single word and file you have in your Drive, juicy food for their ever-learning AI, but that is all to make life more convenient for us? Right?
Let’s start all the way from the top, the master key to your whole digital life, the one thing every website wants. Your email. Everything goes through your email, so it must take top priority.
I have decided to take control of my own data.
As a person who has Google deeply embedded into my life, this is gonna be hard.
If something is free, you are the product.

I reverted back to dual boot. Windows and Linux.
Over the last 2-3 years, I have been listening to various podcasts, most, if not all Linux related… I have probably tried every single one that even mentions Linux, but in the end stopped listening to most, only a few remain…
