https://tasks.org/ does it with CalDAV, and you can share different CalDAV calendars with different people, fo example in Next cloud fairly easily, but also with Radicals, a bit more manual.


How often do you reinstall your OS? In practice never, I installed Arch around 8 years ago on one computer and that’s the install I have today still. I copied it twice to a bigger SSD but that’s kind of it.


A container does not have an IP, only a network card has an IP. Containers normally use a specific port which normally is not changing like 8080 or 8123, etc. I think you misunderstood something with your setup.


In my life it was either I could not save anything or I could save a lot, the expenses are basically the same but the income changed. Once the income was higher than the expenses the saving happened automatically and are steadily growing over time.


Are you reusing one postgres instance for all services?
I have many services running on my server and about half of them use postgres. As long as I installed them manually I would always create a new database and reuse the same postgres instance for each service, which seems to me quite logical. The least amount of overhead, fast boot, etc. But since I started to use docker, most of the docker-compose files come with their own instance of postgres. Until now I just let them do it and were running a couple of instances of postgres. But it's kind of getting rediciolous how many postgres instances I run on one server. Do you guys run several dockerized instances of postgres or do you rewrite the docker compose files to give access to your one central postgres instance? And are there usually any problems with that like version incompatibilities, etc.?

Mine has always been slow. I started on a raspberry pi but later on a NUC and even on my VPS at Hetzner, it was always like you describe. Because I only used it for calendar, adressbook and sharing a few files I replaced it with Radicale for CalDav and CardDav and Syncthing for sharing files.


I have too many photos to sync, but I have two different Document my own and family documents, so that I can share the family documents with my spouse.


I’m syncing my KeePassXC db with Syncthing to about 6 devices, have been doing so for years. And a second db which we share at work.


Why do you need so much ram in your NAS?


Yes I did stop using computers during that time. While I had my Amiga in school only nerds had PCs, so I didn’t get one, even though I was programming on my Amiga with AMIGABasic and so on. I guess it was mostly because I started doing normal teenager stuff once I was 16 like motorbikes, cars, playing music, going to the clubs, etc. so there was no time and no desire to use a computer. Only once everyone seemed to have internet at home I started feeling left out a bit. for some months I started usincgcomputers in Internet Cafes and then decided to get a used PC.


In my case work and private OSses align quite well in the timeline, Raspberry Pi’s I didn’t put in here.


No, I just didn’t have a computer. I bought a MTX 80C and later a Ford Fiesta mk3, I also bought some Technics SL-1200 so I sould pretend to be a DJ:

In the end I just didn’t have the need nor time for a computer.





SmartTube -> Settings -> About -> Enable global search (firmware support needed)

If you click that it will download a app which will function like a gate (it places it in instead of the original YouTube app which it deletes) and sending everything which normally goes to the original YouTube app to SmartTube instead. So global search works, the promotional stuff on the homepage also gets opened in SmartTube and so on.


I am using a Chromecast Ultra, but that only works if you’re ok with using google hardware and software.

I set it up so that smarttube is my default youtube player. I use the stock Netflix app and no jellyfin.

I would like to use PeerTube on it but there is no client where you can log in to your account.


Since my upgrade to 0.19 I really struggle to keep my servr online. It sounds like what is happening to me too. The whole server beco.en unesponsive after the load goes to 100. After I kicked NextCloud from the server in only kept happening every coupple of days. Let’s see if this workaround helps to fix it. If not then I’ll remove swap.


I don’t use it for dementia but just as aregular reminder for myself but it shows the same things you mention hike Date, time todays calendar but also weather andl other things which are 9000 to know. And I also use HomeAssistant for it.


Yes port forwarding with everything else works well, I have no problem with port forwarding, running a lot of services from home.


I wanted to do something similar for a long time but somehow all my atempts failed. I tried the build in into a Fritzbox but my laptop never could connect. Later I tried the wireguard addon in homeassistant but same there.


I set up Radicale with the normal deb package, I like that more because it will be automatically updated.


I’m trying radicale now, it seems to work with the clients I’m using, even HomeAssistant. What I like about it is it’s simplicity, it just stores stuff in the file system. But yes setting it up is a bit finicky. I installed the debian package and that makes it a bit better.


So I tried Baikal, there is one problem with it. HomeAssistant promisses that it works with Baikal but there is a bug preventing it from working since 2021 and it’s not fixed yet. So this prevents me from using it.




What CardDav and CalDav server do you use?

You can set up a empty instance which federates with that channel and the result will be that you share your server bandwidth with them.





Did you think about just letting someone else host your apps like:

Or generic providers like https://yunohost.org/ which have one click solutions for many different software.


I bought a NUC which took 5 W idling that was quite amazing.


It was running https://zoneminder.com/ but idling it used almost the same amount. It was a old PC my dad saved from being thrown out at his company. It must have been from around 2002 or something.


I personally think a NAS would probably be the easiest option and on top of that they are optimized for low electricity consumption, which a PC, especially when it’s older is not. It makes a huge difference because it’s running 24/7 for 356 days a year.

I used a PC once and didn’t realize that it took always about 300 W so at the end of the year surprisingly the electricity bill was much higher than normally.


I have the exact opposite experience but I use their snap which has been updating itself without a single problems or me needing to change any config file for the last 4 years or something. I never need to do anything, so for me the maintenance is the best part of Nextcloud.

I hate that its web frontend is so mega slow that it takes 8 seconds just to log in.

I still use it for calendar, documents, address book and specifically notes too, but I only use external apps for that not the web frontend and the apps on the PC and mobile phone are nice and fast.

I use Syncthing for synchronizing my password manager database. And there the maintainance is also very easy, it updates itself with the system and runs in the background without me ever needing to go to the webfrontend.

I’d say if it’s only for one thing, then I’d go with Synthing, because it does not need a server. If I’d use more features especially calendar and address book and perhaps even to share documents with other people then I’d go with Nextcloud.


Ok, I didn’t see the movie yet, I just assumed this is a funny quote from the movie.


I’m asking because I’m genuinely interested in understanding, it’s the first time I stumbled uppon the word “reactionary content” so I had a look what it means https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reactionary which in this context probably means:

In popular usage, reactionary refers to a strong traditionalist conservative political perspective of a person opposed to social, political, and economic change

Is the reactionism here in this meme that it through comedy tries to ridicule the “strong and independent woman” and thus promotes a political perspective of the patriarchy? Or am I now reading too much into it?


You must mostly be talking to douchebags.





I also gave up on Podcasts on the desktop and only listen from the phone.


Me too, I thought that gPodden was supposed to do that, but it doesn’t even do it between two AntennaPod instances. Syncing podcasts works if you select the same name as an instance when you’re starting syncing, but syncing where you’ve been listening doesn’t.


Ah, but all my old pictures are not available anymore …


So I wanted to try it and found that Synology offers 15 GB for free so I tried it and it was extreamly easy to do. Set up a bucket and then fill in the ENV variables in docker-compose restart and it works, impressive. I might really need to think getting a good deal and doing that for my other fediverse stuff like Mastodon, Peertube and Matrix too, I think it’s equaly easy there.


It depends on the site, back then there were a lot of table-layouts which were quite fucked up in the text-only browser. Nowadays there are non of them which is good, but nowadays there are JavaScript only websites which don’t really work well. You can install a text only browser and try it out yourself.


Back in the day, around 2005 or 2006 I did that and I had browse the internet in a text based browser for 2 days because KDE on that old machine took two days to compile.


My family name .name seems also not used for the last 15 years, so I asked if I could get it but the guy told me that he and his family are using it for their email-addresses. So then I asked if I could have the my-firstname@lastname.name email address and he agreed and I’ve been using it ever since. But yeah the domain would have been nice for my family too. Instead I got a domain with the name of the village we lived in as children and my parents still own the house there.

What Self-Hosted Single Sign-On (SSO) do you use?
I have a lot of different services which I self host for me and my family like: - PeerTube - Lemmy - Mastodon - Synology NAS - TTRSS - NextCloud - Matrix - HomeAssistant - etc. Right now every family member needs to create a user on each of those services and have a different password on them, which is OK when you use a Password Manager, but most of my extended family members don't. And they often forget their password and stop using the service because they can't figure out how to reset the password with each and every service. I would like to try to consolidate all of it with a Single Sign-On (SSO) solution but It's not obvious to me if there is one which is not overly over engineered for hundreds of thousands of users but small and lightweight, perhaps even easy to set up. I tried OpenLDAP but Jesus that was very involved.

Have humans adopted to high / low humidity?
Me and the fiance we always fight about the A/C or dehumidifier. For me coming from central Europe, as soon as the humidity goes over 65% I'm sweaty and hot and can't get dry, I hate it. She as a Korean seems never to sweat at all and even when the humidity is at 80% she seems to have no problems and thinks running the A/C is a waste of money. During the raining season I suffer a lot, not being able to sleep, constantly wet underwear, sweaty hair, sweaty chest and back, etc. She on the other side would rather open the window to cool down when it's raining outside and doesn't mind that the humidity at home will skyrocket. Is genetics involved here or just that different people are comfortable with different humidity?

I have all my photos in a Synology Photos database and want to do fun stuff with it. I'm getting the pictures from the Synology and upload them into Home Assistant. Make sure you have access to the database. Another script pushes them into a Matrix chat room. It's not very polished but works quite well for me with my family.
