Topic of the day: why not both
I got this new thing. my own server and for now it runs pretty well, i've learnt a lot of things such as install/ delete/ making subdomains and so on. Yunohost is pretty straightforward, the only thing i did in CLI is port forwarding because i don't know how to do it with the admin panel. For now i just installed a fileserver for stuff that i wanted to share here, a Calibre server+web interface, Searx instance and a Owncast server
I asked myself if i need to make the change and put my website there too. but i pretty like neocities so far and i'm learning stuff, and i dont want to let this project behind me. It taught me stuff. I still need to figure it out how this works on my own platform.
At the moment i'm just wondering how Pleroma and Matrix works. Twitter misses me but i can now make the big jump into the fediverse. I'm not that new to it i used Diaspora for 2 years and Movim a little bit, and stopped because the pod admin didn't make updates. But i wonder how the other stuff is doing. I saw the fast rise of Mastodon, i was envious of people from Pixelfed because i always wanted to be in cool kid club 😎
I learnt really fast that to be a "true believer of the internet freedom stuff"™ is to have your own server. and yeah i'm so fucking overwhelmed with this feeling of being all-powerful and in the same time really powerless because of the knowledge everything needs. I'm worried about getting confortable and losing it.
My first question with the whole:
shoulda keep my neocities website, or nah?
I'll keep this. and make my more serious page for my server. both. Both. Both is nice.
