Just curious, how many of you are selfhosting? I mean actually running services from your home machine and not renting a vps or a server.

I'm currently running a few services from home like and well... etc.

Often I feel paranoid somebody is exploiting my mistakes and gets access to my home network.

Currently I run host with separate unpriviledged container for each service. as firewall and reverse proxy.

Everybody around me seems to think it's weird and unnecessary to turn all the electricity devices like computer, phone and wifi off for the night.
Then I don't understand why should they be on. Well for the phone I understand if you need to respond to emergency situation but I have no such responsibility.

But of course my server runs 24/7...it doesn't really have to but I'm lazy.

There is now a Mastodon instance for publishing scientists: FediScience.

Everyone is welcome from PhD student to professor, as well as researchers from outside of academia. You are welcome to stay afterwards, but it is also easy to change to another server.

There will be a lot of science talk on this server, but there is no need to only talk science


Boosts are appreciated to let others know about this new instance.

Learning about conteiners. Using as a base so I guess I'm not on GNU/Linux atm.

I'm becoming increasingly lazy with server management. Before I was doing everything from command line, now I just use

I guess I'm part of the rpm-family now since my daily driver is and server .

Nas is still but zfs on linux is starting to look very promising so might change that one point.

for the times I feel like tweaking but I'm still not comfortable enough to use it on daily tasks.

Moved my calendar and contacts to .

was a bit overkill since I had no use of its other properties.


is too reliable (boring) so my server now runs .

On serious note I had to reinstall anyway so why not try something new.

Compiling isn't that bad if you install minimal system and use binary packages for browsers.

But I wouldn't have patience to use full blown desktop with my hardware.

every now and then I rice my desktop but always end up going back to almost vanilla and in kde plasma.

What is your choice for a firewall?

Currently running in but thinking about switching to dedicated hardware and vanilla Linux/FreeBSD/OpenBSD.

ahh new kernel for gentoo. Time to optimiza in order to save a couple of megebytes disk space :P
