I have a raspberry pi used to sync all my files (see post at: helpdeskheadesk.net/help-desk-) So I don't touch it much.

I let it run, download system updates (Debian Buster) once a month or so, restart, and go on with my life.

Today I'm realizing my org files haven't synced well for a couple of days... turns out, it runs Syncthing from *2017*!!!

has repos that are a bit out dated... but THIS outdated? I added Syncthing's PPA to all of my machines *besides* my Syncthing-dedicated hub... 🤦‍♂️ 😂

Now sorting through all the sync conflicts my 3 computers and Android are spitting at each other... fun.

By the way, pro-tip if you're using Syncthing to sync your org files (which is an excellent thing to do, if you ask me, my org files are too personal for GitHub or what not)

Use Synchting file's versioning. You can get backups of your org files this way for all kinds of "oopsies" like the one I just had.

Not a backup solution of course, but good stuff!

I'm totally ranting on and on at this point, but where else can I do it if not here...

is an excellent solution combined with something cheap, stable and always-on solution like a Raspberry Pi.

You can attach huge storage if you want, have it encrypted, and have all kinds of advanced features you won't get on things like or drive or what not. Better for the price, that's for sure.

oh, did I mention it has it's built-in ways to go around most workplaces firewalls (provided you already have the option to install and run it)...? And that it's encrypted in transit?

I mean what else do you need to sync your files... not having an iPhone, probably >.>
