Please refrain from sharing links to my website for articles that may assist others. With Win7 support ending (yeah, who runs a webserver on Win7...), I have to disable my server effective tonight, till I have a chance to move to another OS. It will probably be some time before I can make the move due to work. Thanks.
Also, interesting to see that a label is now required here, that's kinda funny and confused me for a moment.
Go Linux... or Android...
I would go Linux, but, the way the site is setup makes that a pain... I have been using LetsEncrypt, and they have an auto-update function for Windows ISS that updates the certs before they expire. I also have a few hidden directories that only I and certain friends can access for... sharing enjoyable retro things which is located on a shared drive, and I have zero idea how to do that under any linux distro. The first time I setup the website was on Ubuntu and quickly went windows for ease of use.
I can just imagine what it will be like migrating things over to a new OS. If you don't already have one, don't forget how I was able to get Windows 10. You could probably do the same thing.
