@systeemkabouter You inspired me. I setup an Raspberry Pi 4 with two disks in RAID 1 and install Nextcloud now. 🙂

Currently only for testing.

@systeemkabouter I struggle with self-hosting. But I like the idea. I shy the ongoing effort.

Mir currently idea is it to go with an Nextcloud instance hosted by Hetzner. I asked for opinions in an other thread [1].

@Karlitschek Maybe you have some information for me?

Some Background. I plan to use a Hetzner Nextcloud instance [1] and want only to store data with end-to-end encryption.

@systeemkabouter @aral I realized that also a few weeks ago when I played around with my old MacBook Pro (Early 2011).

Some more questions from an Apple user:

- Can you suggest me an good iCloud Drive alternative?
- On macOS I'm using the really awesome banking app MoneyMoney [1]. Are in the Linux world good alternatives beside GnuCash? Also paid ones.

@aral Thank you. I'll put it on my testing list:

- Fedora (I like vanilla GNOME)
- Elementary OS
- Pop!_OS

@aral Thinks like that hold me back from switching from macOS to a Linux distribution.

What ist the state of end-to-end encryption?

There is an official site [1,] but in the app itself it is declared as in alpha state [2].

Periodic reminder that Gitlab still doesn't have any semblance of a working notification system.

You'd think it'd not be that hard to just do what Github has done since forever...

@ss @nextcloud Either way, I want to use Nextcloud.

A Synology makes the storage stuff (RAID, failover) much more easier than a Raspberry Pi I think.

@fatboy Why? In the last comment a good solution is provided.

"... I would just not define any default NTP and DNS servers ..." [1]

@tbernard Or I store everything offline and make multiple backups to different hard-disks. Then I need no more of those "service providers". 🤔

@tbernard Thank you. I have expected an answer like that 😭

So since there is no hassle-free freedombox-style device at the horizon I will give Nextcloud on a Raspberry Pi a try. And when it NOT work I go and buy an Synology. And then I go and search for a service provider with that "good incentives" which I can trust ...

@tbernard Thanks for your great post "Doing Things That Scale" [1]. Since I read it in January I stripped down many customizations. The fish shell is awesome 🙂

You wrote that self-hosting is also a thing which isn't scale. What is your personal solution to that? Do you use mainly commercial services?

Currently I try to get rid of (Calendar, Contacts, Drive). My first thoughts were to go with an Raspberry Pi or an Synology NAS.

@mray I have a long history with self destroying disks 🤪

So I want a solution for replacing defect disks easily without much manual effort.

Thanks for your input 🙂

@mray What I really like on the Synology way is the easy an automatic disk handling (SHR, RAID) with ready to go hardware.
My idea is to use Docker on the NAS and avoid the Synology software packages.

Or is there an user friendly way to build a NAS with an Raspberry Pi and multiple disks?

What I forgot to say: I want mainly use Nextcloud Hub.

I want to get rid of services (Calendar, Contacts, Disk).

Is a Synology NAS a good step in the direction of and ?

@lunduke in your Linux Sucks 2020 Edititon [1] you asked for the meaning of systemd logo?

I think it's creator @tbernard can answer you every question about it 😉

And there exists a very good site to explain the systemd brand [2].
