I am currently writing a list of good #FreeSoftware solutions for #remote #working in the @fsfe wiki:
I still need to polish the wording but if you already have input for me about what is missing, more sources or any other feedback is very welcome.
Just focus please on software that in particular facilitates remote working not any other usual work-procedures.
If you can , install your own #Jitsi server not to overload public ones.
Step-by-step example (30-60 minutes):
* rent a DEV1-M server on https://www.scaleway.com/ with Debian Buster (7,99 Eur/month)
* disable IPv6 (to avoid bugs later)
* reboot (!)
* note public and private IP
* buy a domain (gandi.net,..), and set public IP
* follow https://github.com/jitsi/jitsi-meet/blob/master/doc/quick-install.md (with NAT)
* reboot and enjoy!!

I'd like to make a special item on my game Improbable Island that you can only get by planting a tree. As an added bonus I'd like to give another item when the tree's one year old. I plan to require photographic evidence.
Is there a way to indelibly and non-detrimentally mark a young tree, so that people returning in a year can identify and photograph the tree they planted?
