The Techpad has moved to someplace new and shiny.

Please go to the new cubiclenate.com as this one is going to just rot away, erode, become a former shell of itself, not that it was anything to begin with.
Welcome to CubicleNate's Techpad of likely less than useful information to most people... unless you like things Linux, vintage computing or the obscure. 

I recommend a Base Application Set for all openSUSE Linux installations. These are bits of software that openSUSE will not include automatically for some legal reasons.

  • Documentation for Nextcloud on openSUSE I get some kind of  strange satisfaction out of updating documentation for openSUSE. I find that the more I use openSUSE, the more I go through and update the documentation for the applications I am using. I don't have any real development skills and I want to give back to the openSUSE project so I have decided to do what I can do... document!!!  I had some downtime while listening to the Ask Noah Show he brought up the work required in updating a Nextcloud server for a clients I and decided that I would go through and see how the documentation was for running Nextcloud on openSUSE. It needed some updatesI started at the SDB:Nextcloud site ...
