Pinned toot

I want to build home server. I can buy single-board computer up to $50. What can you advise?

Also it will be interesting to hear your builds.

Purpose of server:
- Storage of photos for four people;
- Hosting for mail;
- Hosting for important files.

Thanks in advance!

I love Fosstodon. It's the best internet community where I were.

What do you use for sound editing? I used Adobe Audition on Windows and heard only about Audacity on Linux, but I don't like it.

I want my laptop back. It was freezing by no reason. It could be in 5 minutes or even 5 hours. And it could be solved only with reboot. Therefore I took it to the repairman and it's going second week after it and he cannot even detect problem. Meh.

P.S. I made memtest, CPU/GPU stress tests, cleared of dust. So I guess it's smth with motherboard or WiFi adapter.

Ok. Yesterday I were complaining about policy of Google. Today's morning I have wanted to get Apple ID for uploading podcasts. And you know what? They even didn't allow me to sign up! I'm really crazy with all this shit. Why corporations always think that we are bots?!

I'm so tired with Google. Created an account for Google Podcasts and my account was banned in less than an hour! I have just added my RSS feed. I don't see good alternatives to it, except of Apple Podcasts. I guess Google will implement also ID card verification in future. Hope FOSS solutions, especially Federative ones, will be more popular in few years.

If somebody was interested in starting podcast without selfhosting then I found really good service. RedCircle. There're no limits for uploading, you can register with disposable mail, you get RSS feed and auto uploading on all major podcast services. Also you can earn on platform (if you have enough auditory).

(I am only trying to figure out how to register in Google without real phone number, dummy numbers from web sites don't work)

Thanks to @Decentralize_today I found Looks really neat for selfhosting.

Who knows how to make selfhosted server secure and private? I guess it's the main problem of home server and I am afraid to miss important points.

If you go out with your wifi turned on, then chances are anyone nearby can find your home address in seconds.

It have been a really hard day. Over 11 hours have been spent on Uni's tasks. What's interesting: more I tired more I am happy

There is no such thing as a backdoor that only lets the good guys in. Together with Tresorit, @threemaapp and Tutanota, we are calling on EU policy makers to rethink anti-encryption proposals that would introduce backdoors in encryption platforms:

Situation with open source charts is awful in my town. When I had finished only 300 quests I realized that I'm in the top 50 contributors of Ukraine.

P.S. StreetComplete

Ok. I started contributing in StreetComplete. It's really interesting.

I have a 'no arguing on the internet' policy which has served me well the past 10 or so years. Highly recommend it.

I have just downloaded wiki dump. Who can advise a reader for it? Thx in advance.

I want to install office. What do you prefer? Libre office, only office or something other?
Of course it must be FOSS and have good compatibility with Microsoft Office.

I find it really, really interesting how ODT and ODP are open formats and still Microsoft doesn't give a fuck about fully supporting its features and making Office compatible with ODF formats.
