Hey akrabu and restic contributors!
@akrabu This is great to hear! Unfortunately it seems like this type of thing happens often, but the restic team doesn’t get to hear the praise they’ve earned. Thanks for reminding us to be grateful and share our stories!
@fd0 restic team and forum members: Thanks for all the incredible work you’ve put into restic and this community! I’ve not only recovered from a tight spots thanks to restic, but I’ve also gained a substantial amount of peace of mind! With restic and its rclone integration, I can back up my entire linux install incrementally in five minutes to several different cloud storage providers. I have the peace of mind of knowing that a simple 5 minute task can pretty much save my digital life! I hope you all can give yourselves a well-deserved pat on the back! For every 1 restic user like akrabu, who speaks up and reminds us to express our thanks, there are likely another 1000 who have also been saved but haven’t came back and thanked the community! I myself am guilty of this…
I hope all those who contribute code to restic and all those who contribute on the wiki and forum all can see how much of a difference they’ve made in people’s lives. A secure and stable backup solution is at this point the most important aspect of using a computer, and having one that’s free, open source, and community supported is a huge advent to the FLOSS community and much more generally to all those who use computers.
Thank you again to all those contributing on restic and in this open source community, you’ve saved me many times, and you’ve given me the peace of mind that is far too hard to achieve in this digital age. Congratulations on your work and your accomplishments!
