Should I do a upgrade script?

I have three Ubuntu servers, reverse proxy with nginx, nextcloud and wordpress.

I thinking of creating a simple upgrade script that runs every wednesday night.

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade -y and then reboot after that.

Is that a good idé?

Tasker: Total Automation for Android - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 02:07

Don't laugh, but here comes Lazyperson... and I'm always looking for stuff to improve in my existing tasks:

I have a task that turns up (or down) my radio's volume by running AutoInput actions a set number of repeats, say 10 times, with a 300ms wait between this AI actions. Works like a charm. Using an app, of course.

But as you can imagine this could lead to getting to a volume level that is not the desired target if and when the volume was adjusted manually by, say, 3 steps (for whichever reason). My ocd demands the target volume to be always the same...

I now thought of using an AI Query to check for the desired target volume which is displayed as a number in the radio's app (when changing the volume). That also works.

Now I want to change my "volume up/down" task to use an AI Query action and run the AI inputs as many times as it is needed to reach the target volume. I believe I would need to run a for loop for that? But those are yet beyond my comprehension and I would kindly request some input as to how I would go about this?

Let's use the target number of 38. The current volume level number could be 28 or 32 or even 48.

Thanks for some input. :)

System Monitoring Advice

I have a VPS that has several services running across several users (small scale, <20 processes). I'm trying to find a way so that I can:

  1. Start them all up immediately on reboot (I understand I can use systemd? Will I be able to save output from the processes somewhere?)
  2. View information on these processes. Including CPU and RAM usage. Preferably in a web UI. Also noting that some of these processes spawn threads and I want to be able to monitor them as a whole (so a project may have processes A, B and C, and C spawns threads on and off. I hope to be able to see CPU usage of this project as a whole maybe, and also processes A, B and C (with its child threads), in a graph.)

Kubernetes soundssss like it might be what I want? But I'm not sure. I'm very lost heh and any help would be greatly appreciated?

App Suspended!

Developing Android Apps - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 01:39

The flappy bird clone I made was about to hit 100k downloads and suddenly I got a notification saying it’s suspended, then I appealed but unfortunately they told its impersonating a popular brand (Flappy Bird). My app was titled Flappy 2 - 2018 and icon was similar to the original. Is there anyway to get it back? Cause other Flappy Bird clones available on PlayStore are poorly optimized and they don’t work like the original... Btw is it allowed to upload the app to Apple AppStore with the name “Flappy”?

What is stopping Linux community to create softwares like Adobe products and Microsoft Games?

Linux - Sat, 10/20/2018 - 01:32

In my childhood, I'm very much good with Windows 95, 98 and later on continued to 2000, XP, 7, 8 and now 10.

When I'm using Windows XP SP 3, I come across Ubuntu in a local Telugu language newspaper and found it interesting. At that time Canonical supplied free CD's through post and I ordered a one, installed and found it really hard (I'm around 14 at that time).

Now after a long gap, Installed Ubuntu 18.04 and been using it since last two months (formatted Windows). I frequently use Adobe products like Photoshop, Premier etc. and for printing purpose QuarkXpress and Adobe Pagemaker.

Gaming wise, Microsoft won my heart with Age of Empires the Rise of Rome, in fact all AOE series, Firefly Studios Stronghold, Captain Claw and many more.

Whereas, after shifting to Ubuntu, though I'm missing all these, I tried the alternatives. for Photoshop, I've chosen GIMP, but not as effective as Photoshop, but still it improved a lot. For Pagemaker, QuarkXpress I've tried Scrible, but not that effective again. For Microsoft games, I believe, there is no alternative yet, including Steam games.

I wonder what is stopping the Linux community / enthusiasts to build the best alternatives to the Adobe / Microsoft products? Adobe designing products, Microsoft games are heart of Windows, I believe.
