How-to: Setup private wiki

Some people where interested in using a wiki for taking notes, so I wrote a guide for setting up a wiki. I’m still figuring out how to best use the functionality provided for taking notes, but I will probably write some post in the future about that as well.

A quick word of warning: If you decide to run this on your own server, you should make sure you are aware of the risks. Unless you have some experience running servers you should consider getting a hosted wiki.
Also I’m not sure any of the configurations mentioned in this guide would be considered “best practice”. If anyone has suggestions for improvements or problems with this setup, I would love to hear them. If you have problems with setting up your wiki, feel free to contact me.

Now we got that out of the way, let’s get started.

For this guide I will be using Ubuntu 16.04. I will also assume the server has (s)ftp installed (if not DigitalOcean has some good guides on this).

New Year’s Resolutions 2017

My resolutions for the new year are:

  • Start working out again / living healthy
  • Reading to learn / for fun, not to tick a box (read slower)
  • Build / making things, enough “tutorial” content for now
  • Start working on startup / company ideas more concretely
  • Write more

For each resolution I will be settings specific, measurable goals to keep myself accountable. I will be doing this over the course of January, so I can start acting on these goals the first day of February.

Top 10 books of 2016

For some reason I didn’t read a lot when I was younger. Last year my reading habit really took off. To get myself to continue this trend I set a goal by participating in the Goodreads reading challenge. This is a challenge where you decide the number of books you want to read before the end of the year. I set my goal at 50 books. I have finished my challenge this year, but which books where my favorites? (Note these are not books released in 2016, I just read them in 2016)

PicoCTF 2013 – In Hex, No One Can Hear You Scream

Points: 90

Text: While flying through the outskirts of the Ripley system, you notice a distress signal from one of the outer moons. It appears a ship has crash-landed near a 16-sided pyramid. The lone survivor, a docx file, tells you that a malicious programmer has embedded an egg in his chest and he’s afraid that it’s going to hatch. He offers his assistance if you can help find the egg.
