    There's a new link on the Forums view just below "Post thread..." that says "STH Merch Shop." It goes to some site called "TeeSpring" Is that legit? Is it something you're testing @Patrick and @William ? The stuff on that site is using the STH logo so if not you should ask them to take it down.

    Does anyone have a recommended way to run netdata on Proxomox?
