With the rise of multiple streaming services with varied content, there seems to be a push back to having your own personal collection of movies and shows. A person could go down the road of buying a small form factor motherboard, CPU, Hard Drives and install Linux, deal with local network issues to get the content available outside the house; not including upkeep on the physical as well as the software. Plex has a online server you can install and use to stream your own personal content online, ad free. A notice: THIS GUIDE DOES NOT CONDONE ILLEGAL USE!

Ubuntu 19.04's install process does not create a large enough swap partition to allow the system to hibernate, which Debian did.
Since the CyberCamps ended last week, I have had time to begin preparing for the Fall semester at Cabrillo College. In that time, I have also been gathering new resources and realigning the baycyber.net website for the academic year's vision and goals. In that time, I came across OWASP Cornucopia, a card game that piqued my interest. After getting the college to pay for the printing of the cards, I learned how to play.
The Bay Area Competitions Program is currently running as a hybrid cloud between NDG's Netlab+ and Google Cloud. In my research, installing Kali Linux to other cloud platforms (Azure has Kali ready to deploy; I have seen scripts to deploy on AWS) is relatively easy.
