How to fix slow Slow Upload speeds on SoYouStart ARM Storage Servers (Debian 9)

On the 11th June 2018, OVH massively dropped prices on their ARM-based SoYouStart storage servers. To people looking for a cheap dedicated server, these offers are very attractive as for just £5.99 per month, you can get a server with a 2TB hard drive and an unmetered 250Mbps connection.

Today, I will be reviewing Quorn Cocktail Sausages, which are a vegetarian alternative to normal pork sausages.

Getting out of the Goolag part 1: Getting away from YouTube

/wp-content/uploads/sites/5/2018/03/Goolagpart1-1.mp4   If you have been keeping up with what’s happening in the YouTube community, then you know just how badly Google has handled YouTube since buying it in 2006.

Heat Em Up Southern Fried Chicken And Chips Review

Heat Em Up is a range of extremely cheap microwavable snacks manufactured by Summit Foods LTD. Today we will be reviewing the microwavable Heat Em Up fried chicken and chips.   First impressions and cooking: The chicken burger comes in your pretty generic cardboard tray, just like the supermarket own brand ones do.

Some issues I see with hate speech laws

Seeing what is happing all over Europe with the political extremes rising up I was thinking why are they a lack of moderates coming out then I thought maybe the “hate speech” laws could be making them too scared to speak up as they fear going to prison for laws that could ban anything the people in charge don’t like (In the UK people could get between 6 months to 2 years in prison for “malicious” or “grossly offensive” that are both up to a judge to decide what counts so all you need is one corrupt judge then anyone who disagrees with the government could go to prison).
