From Optimists To Optimists: Disney Imagineers and Tomorrowland

After I watch TRON: Legacy tonight (Friday night is my pizza/movie night), I did a search for the following in Google:

tomorrowland tron legacy wall-e optimist

I came across a headline that talks about Disney imagineers and Tomorrowland.

And below the article in the search result is my tweet about Star Trek and Netflix (and yes, you should read my tweets below my main tweet even if you do not have a Twitter account).

In the article about the movie Tomorrowland, I found it interesting that Disney created a game called “The Optimist.” It seems like the movie Tomorrowland debuted 2 years after the events of “The Optimist.” If you watch the movie “Tomorrowland,” you should hear that name called “Plus Ultra” and read what Plus Ultra is about. That is before Frank Walker, Casey Newton, and Athena stepped into the rocket in order to travel to another dimension, Tomorrowland.

I will always keep my spirit of optimism going for as long as I live. If only Tomorrowland wasn’t such an underrated movie.

My Comment To: 10 Tips for Hardening your Linux Servers

Update as of Friday, April 23, 2021

YouTube’s spam filtering algorithms censored my script below and whenever I posted a link to my comment in my website, YouTube automatically deleted my comment containing a link. That’s YouTube’s censorship at work for you. We Linux users have been censored off of YouTube for good. We should all thank YouTube for limiting our free speech and hindering us for openly contribute what we want to share. Please, content creators, for goodness sake, please do us viewers and contributors a favor and sync your YouTube videos to Odysee. Thank you.

(This post is a comment to a YouTube video: 10 Tips for Hardening your Linux Servers)

I can follow all 8 tips although the last 2 tips are for businesses. Plus, I’m using crontab to help me backup my ClassicPress website from my VPS server.

Crontab:

0 0 * * * /home/[REDACTED]/bin/backup-cp.sh

Script (~/bin/backup-cp.sh)

#!/bin/sh
ssh -p [REDACTED] [REDACTED]@graysonpeddie.com -i ~/.ssh/classicpress ~/bin/cpbackup.sh > ~/cpbackup/classicpress-$(date +%Y%m%d).sql
ssh -p [REDACTED] [REDACTED]@graysonpeddie.com -i ~/.ssh/classicpress tar czf - /var/www > ~/cpbackup/classicpress-$(date +%Y%m%d).tar.gz > /dev/null 2>&1
scp -P [REDACTED] -i ~/.ssh/classicpress [REDACTED]@graysonpeddie.com:/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default.conf ~/cpbackup/classicpress-apache-$(date +%Y%m%d).conf

The “[REDACTED]” is for obscuring the port number and username. And yes, I have had problems with YouTube deleting my comment when I was going to edit it because I think YouTube’s algorithms thought I posted spam but I did not. So there are times when I have to outsmart computer algorithms.
