Nextcloud Intro Video released

The first video in this series took some time to get recorded and produced but it will be released on the second week of December as editing is being completed at this time.

The availability is getting better. I recently ordered a 8gb model to replace the 4GB model running Nextcloud. Recent updates have squeezed the memory for caching (2gb at maximum) resulting in the collaboration server not able to load.

In the next few weeks, the server will be replaced to be used for the second video to be released in January.

This is a inexpensive and reliable solution to backup your phone data to another computer using a small computer that can easily sit next to networking equipment as well as your entertainment center.

Many aren't familiar with the product because it is a product that is supported for educational purposes from a non-profit organization in Great Britain that is used by many for security systems, networking equipment, robots, and even lighting for the holidays that has been around for 10 years.

Many have chose to buy computers simply as a status symbol or bling but never had a budget for another computer to back the phone up. This is a solution that is reliable, secure, and easy to use once the one time setup is completed.

COBOL Support

As the result of fewer programs and apps that have been transferred over to cloud servers and newer systems, COBOL support will be provide in the future for businesses and government agencies that need assistance that had increased as the result of Covid-19.

COBOL programming was one of the first structured and compiled languages learned when attending ITT Tech back in the 1980's. It was the educational facility in the Seattle Area teaching and even students from the University of Washington took courses from the school that was taught by business professionals that setup the IT infrastructure for Safeco during the 1960's and 70's.

Since the 21st century, many apps have been produced using Visual Basic, C#, C+=, and C as well as Java and Python, COBOL apps continue to exist in many Fortune 500 companies with COBOL compilers still being supported by IBM and HP to use the applications on HPE and Microsoft Azure cloud servers for running reports, sorting records, and data entry tasks as it was intended to do since it's release in 1960.

In February, COBOL compilers have been installed on a Raspberry Pi system to work with Gnu COBOL while the Windows Server will be working with Micro Focus COBOL with Visual Studio using flat files to go through curriculum provided by Linked In Learning and IBM.

During 2022, there are going to be some test to see if a COBOL compiler can work with MySQL data tables. Some versions have options for SQL server capabilities as well as ODBC support that can work with current data needs that have changed in the last 60 years.
