I can't express how happy I am to be using self-hosted services instead of stuff coming from the likes of big tech. It's a big relief and I find myself feeling more free every day.
@brandon I feel the same. I'm similarly hoping the Pyra handheld will be finished this year ... Hoping to replace my Android phone with it.
