Setting up ProjectSend on your Raspberry Pi 3 for sharing files – the LEMP way

Do you have large files that you want to share with your friends or clients? Do you keep your Internet connection on 24-7?

Compared to using Google Drive, Dropbox or other on-the-cloud file sharing software, hosting your own file sharing software when you never switch off your Internet has a few advantages.

Provided that your friends don’t share your files with others, your files stay at home and on your friends’ machines. Furthermore, you are only limited by the amount of storage that you have on your machine.

If you have a Raspberry Pi 3 in your house, you may want to consider setting up ProjectSend on your Raspberry Pi 3 for sharing files with others. This post shows how to do it with a LEMP stack.

A review of Logitech G710+; why I love it so much for coding

I had been using a Logitech K120 that I bought for more than three years for my typing activities. It was a value for my money and had served me through my debt laden days. However, it showed its age when its stiffened keys start to disrupt my typing pretty frequently to the point where I started to get physically tired from typing.

That was not acceptable to me as I spent most of my time in front of my computer. And hence, it was time for me to buy a new one as I had some budget in my hands. I had been hearing about mechanical keyboards for some time. In fact, people who love to game often turn to mechanical keyboards to quench their gaming thirst. Gaming can require a serious amount of typing, especially when played in a team setting.

I would say I am bias when it comes to choosing keyboards and mice; I always buy from Logitech. After some research, I settled on Logitech G710+ Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with Tactile High-Speed Keys.
