    Note, I’ve also added GitHub, but there seems to be an issue with the configuration in the sense that the redirect appears to hang. I’m unsure as to the origins of this, but strongly suspect it may be related to 2FA being enforced on the account (GitHub), and so it falls over at this point.

    I’ll keep testing this - if you have a GitHub account that doesn’t use 2FA and want to try it, I’d certainly appreciate any testing you carry out, along with the results you get.

    Last September, I received an offer from Sam Altman, who wanted to hire me to voice the current ChatGPT 4.0 system.

    He told me that he felt that by my voicing the system, I could bridge the gap between tech companies and creatives and help consumers to feel comfortable with the seismic shift concerning humans and AI.

    He said he felt that my voice would be comforting to people.

    After much consideration and for personal reasons, I declined the offer.

    Nine months later, my friends, family and the general public all noted how much the newest system named “Sky” sounded like me.

    When I heard the released demo, I was shocked, angered and in disbelief that Mr Altman would pursue a voice that sounded so eerily similar to mine that my closest friends and news outlets could not tell the difference.

    Mr Altman even insinuated that the similarity was intentional, tweeting a single word “her” - a reference to the film in which I voiced a chat system, Samantha, who forms an intimate relationship with a human.

    Two days before the ChatGPT 4.0 demo was released, Mr Altman contacted my agent, asking me to reconsider. Before we could connect, the system was out there.

    As a result of their actions, I was forced to hire legal counsel, who wrote two letters to Mr Altman and OpenAI, setting out what they had done and asking them to detail the exact process by which they created the “Sky” voice. Consequently, OpenAI reluctantly agreed to take down the “Sky” voice.

    In a time when we are all grappling with deepfakes and the protection of our own likeness, our own work, our own identities, I believe these are questions that deserve absolute clarity.

    I look forward to resolution in the form of transparency and the passage of appropriate legislation to help ensure that individual rights are protected.

    @Panda if you used the Ubuntu PPA, I think this only goes as far as 6.x if I recall correctly.

    @Norrad Are you looking for anything in particular? I only ask because Sudonix uses a number of custom functions which I wrote, but all are available on GitHub and fully supported here.

    @Panda it really depends on what hosting package you decide to go with. You’re right though - it’s usual for cPanel or in some cases, Plesk etc to accompany hosting packages.

    However, if you order a vps package, it’s quite common for this to be nothing more than a Linux server with no control panel whatsoever.

    Which package did you order?

    Now, “SBF” is beginning a lengthy prison sentence of 25 years for what prosecutors have described as “one of the biggest financial frauds in American history”.

    25 years for stealing billions of dollars? Seems pretty lenient to me 😠

    Clearly, this early estimate was completely wrong

    The 30-year-old founder of FTX is being held on criminal charges over an alleged “brazen, multi-year” mass financial fraud, and faces up to 115 years in jail if convicted.

    I personally think that 115 years is more appropriate and even that will never compensate those that have lost their life savings because of this man’s greed and narcissism.

    @Hari Yes, that’s one (of many) I would recommend. It’s going to be easier to do this under Windows and the fact that you are already connected using SMB is a huge plus.
