@feoh @TheGibson
I have similar experiences
>What, you don't use google? But it's free!
>What, why don't you use whatsapp?
(deleted it right now after a few days of locking all non-running web access)
>Why do you pay for your cloud?
>Why do you download everything?

People call me paranoid when I'm just trying to have privacy in my own home. If I'm providing information, I wanna know who's asking.

Solar powered micro datacenter in the work: the autonomous Datashedter ( need a better name, or sleep a bit more before naming things ... )

- 400W solar panels on top and a bunch of batteries for up to 4 days operations in the dark.
- Fiber uplink to main building.
- Wifi backup Uplink.
- the 3 Ham antennas in the picture are used for emergencies at crazy distances in case of all down in a 150-1000miles radius ( 1k miles is very very low bandwidth ofc ).

- DYI isolation in the work
- Moar shelves inside and probably power box overhaul.
- Testing/testing/testing.
- Migrating some services there ?

it should be fun to self host stuff :)

I just created a #BASH #script to convert a #Markdown file into PDF, EPUB, and ODT files using pandoc. It automatically adds metadata like title, author name, and date to the epub files.

I once embraced UBNT and Unifi, but the AP's sucks, and the switches is dangerous. I understand why people and companies prefer Cisco.

Spanning Tree is a joke, and it is more of a joke on a Unifi switch,

The worst thing a company can buy for their Enterprise Network is a Unifi Switch
