"Police are warning students and universities not to access Sci-Hub, an "illegal website" that allows users to download scientific research papers normally locked behind expensive subscriptions."

So I installed raspian (ugh) on rpi4, attached 2tb external hdd, formatted it to btrfs installed samba, and I'm doing backups. Works well so far, 71mb from 2gb of ram used, small load (~0.13).
