Reflection on my recent career change into IT.
It has been roughly two months since I started my new position at work as a sysadmin. I'm beginning to build confidence now that I've got several successful projects under my belt and I'm enjoying the work even more than I expected to. The feeling reminds me of the excitement I had when just starting to use linux and open source software. (1/4)
Personally, I don't care that Mastodon isn't grotesquely huge like our centralized counterparts. They may have millions of users, but its worth fuck-all if I can't meaningfully connect with any of them. Divisive, metric-driven algorithms that encourage conflict to generate revenue for shareholders is not MY social media... #MastodonIsMine.
How would you describe your social experience here versus elsewhere? (2/2)

People who enabled server-side encryption on their #nextcloud instance: There is a big ugly confirmation warning about performance impacts when enabling encryption. My instance is running on 1024mb of memory and a single cpu core, I realize that is pretty weaksauce and will likely increase resources in the future.
How much of an impact did you notice?
What specs would you recommend for an instance that is serving only family members?

Update: Server's IP has been removed from Spamhaus' blocklist (again) and I was sucessfully able to send mail to gmail w/o them flagging it. 👍
Great. My IP is back on the Spamhaus blocklist. Re-opened ticket.
Setting up a personal email server is akin to driving on a Möbius Strip with speedbumps. They never end.
New project: I found my chicken, geese, and turkey automated water cannon repeller. Getting tired of washing the porch off every day.
Alright now my mail is being received at protonmail with no problems. gmail is still filing it into spam. I'll try again tomorrow, maybe it'll solve itself
