Well, wasnt the last week fun....

Around Thanksgiving (US), I had to rebuild a VPS. I opted to try out Amazon's Lightsail (verdict -- its cheap and OKish). Nothing about it Google liked, mail being a big one, but really it blocked all access. After finally having a chance to putz with it, apparently all I needed to do was give each program on the node an app password and now things are peachy. No method existed to say, "No thats me, log me in dammit!" Repeated blockings after repeated attempts by me to get SOMETHING to work, until I added in the App Passwords. Considering this is a static IP I am a little annoyed and perplexed.

I am not sure though, I am glad I kept my cool. Slowly over the last two years I have been dumping Google items for others. I really came close to the last straw moment when getting Email was no longer doable.

Google, stop pissing off your employees that are actually competent. The documentation pages are not great (and I did tell you so), and there is nowhere to get help. I dont care if you are partnered with Red Hat for compute clusters, Amazon and others are too and will get the sales. The instant you prevented me from searching ammo on your Shopping site, no more sales. The list goes on, but you are now down to a tertiary email at best, G+. Duck Duck Go can do search.

And frankly having to be a computer nerd to figure out how to get email is ludicrous.

For those looking to replicate somehow what I have implemented:

Mail backend is "Mail in a Box"
Office suite is from Nextcloud
Webmail from Rainloop
Replaced ChromeOS with straight up Linux
Chromecasts have been getting replaced by Fire Sticks.
Androids have been getting replaced by Kindles or Linux friendly small formfactor units.
Search, DuckDuckGo.
Phone is still android. But since it is tied to nothing now, I can go to Ubuntu (less likely) or KDE Plasma without me giving two shits in the slightest.
Youtube has been somewhat replaced by Twitch, but I have hopes with the new licensing to see more of my crowd over there.

This is what happens when you insult me and my intelligence -- I walk with ALOT of money and money by proxy (recommendations).

The best men's groomers I have had the pleasure of patronizing. And the only in town that hasn't butchered my beard. I find the pricing quite fair, service excellent, and a rather flexible appointment system.

Quite a pleasant place, although it gets crowded fast with how much they have managed to pack in that storefront. When I say alot, there is ALOT of variety, including seasonal stuff. If you can think of it its there. The one negative truly is get 5 people in there and its a crowded zoo. As for the candy quality, I personally only had some of my purchases, the bulk (literally) was for a few friends, which never complained about it, rather asked where I got the volumes/oddball find each time. Their chocolate bars are great, and of course its hard to jack up a gummy worm, or milkballs.

Very nice shop, with talented staff. Although, I generally have my firearm choices made prior to stopping in, they have helped nudge me from time to time. Great indoor range. Shot pistol and rifle here.

I went for their 4th of July special, and was very pleased. They have a vast selection of locomotives and cars to view, including some very old equipment. The staff is rather knowledgeable and well versed on the what, why, and history of all the equipment.

Great group of people. Called and got great service, promptly showed up to tow my vehicle away. Definitely recommend, and will use (God forbid) in the future.

Great attraction for kids. Has a roller coaster, boat ride, archery, cork shooter fun, slingshot shooting, merry go round, a kiddie train, a live action show, and pony rides. The museum was pretty thorough too. For $15, I can't complain one bit. Very nice staff that did a great job acting too.
