@alialiwa20050Today, I've started experimenting with some configurations for my Raspberry Pi (mini DIY server) to find the most optimal solutions.
I was comparing RealVNC vs xRDP (which I've been using for a long time), and found that the VNC protocol is likely the better option compared to the Remote Desktop Protocol (now it's my favorite).
I've tested different categories, mainly which one was lighter.
On my Raspberry Pi 4B, VNC had less ram usage.
Now this may not seem a lot, especially on my Pi 4 with 8GB ram, but VNC may make more of a difference on Pi models with less ram, such as my 1GB Pi 3B.
Out of the box, RDP has better resolution, but with some configuration, I was able to get VNC to display 1080p resolution.
Also, something that I found as potentially useful was the fact that you can connect your Pi to a VPN, simply whitelist the VNC port, and you could connect and login remotely to the Pi via VNC while it is connected to a VPN (I wasn't able to do that with RDP).
Next, I'm planning on testing out OpenVPN versus the Wireguard protocol on my Pi, because I'm thinking of using my Pi as a DIY VPN server (and a way to have access to my home LAN outside of home, with minimal port forwarding), in the near future.
@mikaeru0I write an article, I may publish it later. The title sounds not right, maybe i should do some a lil edit for it.
@matthewvandyke080Designing a new section. Plus also working/planning for the next thing for BrainDUMP. Super busy this week with finals and finishing school, so I want to be ready for when I'm done so I have things to do.
@karolina0My problem is this:
I change my mind.
I'm always juggling millions of ideas, Pinterest boards, program ideas, homework assignments... I live in a jumble of words in my mind. I borrow personalities, words, phrases - I take inspiration to make up for the fact that I'm too burned out to create my own, too overwhelmed to assign a simple 'yes' and 'no' to what I like and don't like.
Currently, I have seven (7) personal websites, and only one is finished. They're all half made, with different fonts, ideas, colors, aesthetics; different snip-its of the people who were in my life at the time that I made it. Last night, I wondered why I was struggling so much with picking a theme for my website and sticking to it.
I want my website to represent me: to be the corner of the internet where I show what's important to me. I want it to be a visualization of my values written in code, and with that changing so often... it's hard.
I know that this feeling isn't foreign to many people my age, and I've recognized that the issue was that I was making websites to reflect who I wish I was, not who I am. It may just be a personal website, but to me, it's also a reflection of self-acceptance and understanding.
I'm back on Scrapbook to get my life together, and for Day 0 (v2), I decided to create a moodboard for my new website. An array of fonts, colors, ideas, emojis - we'll sort them out later, we'll stick to them, and we'll make our own corner of the Internet. I highly doubt that my final website will look anything like this, and that's ok. We'll get there eventually.
