General psa that blades in the dark is a stellar ttrpg
Was GMing a session of blades in the dark several months ago when a simple "meeting with a shady figure" scene ended with a 10 minute completely in character role play conversation between a me and a player.
It was thoughtful, story relevant and so solid that all checks and mechanics fell aside and we just hashed shit out. That doesn't happen all the time but when it does it reminds me why I love tabletop rpgs
Specifically a rye old fashioned with cinnamon bitters. Hella good.
Misplaced trust issues because "cloud backup services" have instilled fear in me that I _need_ them to keep my shit alive. But also, I know drives fail, break, get stolen, lost, etc.
I don't have many "sacred" files really, given that its mostly just checked-in dev files in version control, but I have wedding photos, etc, which I'd like to keep stored away and not in git.
Does anyone have a local backup solution that they trust? I've got hella mistrust of hard drives, probably unnecessary so - but I trust cloud services even less regarding longevity.
I self host a nextcloud instance, but for stuff I want to keep in storage, I don't have a great solution. Right now it's just in nextcloud and also on a media server in my house + backed up via a service. Is just plopping it on an external SSD gonna be ok? HDD? Ugh. Trust issues.
Also my team at Stripe is hiring a product operations manager! We're looking for someone in SF or NYC
Please apply if you're interested! Underrepresented folks absolutely encouraged to apply.
Whatever language you're writing software in is probably fine.
