Disdain for Plebs

I hear you haven't installed Devuan yet. What's the matter with you? Is Bill Gates your pal or something? Have you not got enough of the "windows is cool, kids!" and "I sure do love the surface pro!" yet? Or have you gone the other way? Did you become autistic and not resist the gentoo maymay hard enough? You can be free as a bird and all you have to do is press install. No datamining fuckery, no manually installing the keyboard drivers, easy encryption by default... Do you even know what absolute freedom feels like? It's as if Torvalds and Stallman are taking it in turns to spank you on the bum saying that you are good for taking it like a big girl, then they hand you a free as in not systemd ice cream. It's stunningly delightful.

Kinda worried about rooting it or changing the os, as I don't know how I'd configure the brickphone keypad. I've already removed the camera..

backups

What's the best way to backup data for a website? Particularly ones like image boards with lots of user posts.

Recently nextchan went down and had no backups so thousands of posts were lost. Hopefully if we can compile knowledge here we can share it and prevent a repeat!
