Cursed Pyotr Croptopkin with abs and midrift showing 

Been setting up a Banana Pi to replace my Raspberry Pi to receive our files using scp, and as a .

Installed Armbian Buster, an excellent OS project supporting over 300 boards, and has an awesome setup tool including hotspot config.

Couple of difficulties along the way, their "headless" OS needs tweaking to actually be headless cuz by default you need to enter a new password on first boot before even ssh access is possible! Needs an ext antenna too.

Default DNS over HTTPS (#DoH) in #Firefox is admirable, tunneling DNS through #Cloudflare is dangerous, as @ungleich sharply summarizes: "whether you trust Cloudflare or not, you'll end up directly supporting centralisation by using DoH in Firefox.

Please contact me about any questions, remarks or other feedback!

So here's a TL;DR:

@vrsmd Here's an example of a gImageReader (a Tesseract-based linux one) and a pay service. gImage reader's result has not been able to get the layout sized and positioned correctly and the text is not continuous and selectable.
