New Blog: A Plea for Patience From a Privacy Enthusiast
I found this post by @thenewoil very nice (and even inspiring). I definitely recommend reading it!
I normally don't link to blog posts here, but I felt like it so here I go!
On not caring about privacy
(I guess this happens in other social networks that I simply don't use, but also I had never messaged people I didn't know in real life on other networks, so there is definitely something different here!)
Pro tip: When you are working from home, use codimd.org to share your notes with all participants.
If you can't host it yourself, feel free to use our cloud, demo, instance. Even when it's a demo instance, it's persistent and should help you to get everyone ready!
Finally set up goaccess so it adds all the information from the last day once logrotate does it's thing and put the output behind a password.
For the first time I documented everything! I need to document how I set up everything else since I didn't do it back in the day. Now I realise it might be helpful in the future if something happens to the server or I change providers.
Self-hosting takes some time to set up, but so far very fun! (Documenting not so much)
I finally have my server running with a website, it also runs gotify and a couple other useful programs.
What are good ways to back it up? Just document how I set up everything?
The content itself isn't what I worry about, I am asking about the setup. I have heard about Ansible but have no idea what it does. Does it solve this problem? Maybe doing something with Docker? (also not very familiar).
Any knowledge welcome! I am a bit lost in this matter.
Do you know any methods to send notification to your phone from a server you are running?
I found https://gotify.net which looks great (self-hosted and FOSS!) but I wanted to ask in case you know of anything else I should look into.
