@emanuele @nolan Haha, there's so much "of me" inside your blogpost! +1 for #lineageos without google and a phone which is a few years old (free #covid app fork #cctg @CCTG ), #nextcloud #selfhosted locally, smart TV without internet access. Yes, it's a bit more work but I'd do it again and I'm learning new stuff all the time. What kind of trouble is #nextcloud giving you? By the way, you can always get to your stuff using a #VPN 🙃
@M4x @emanuele I'm running NextCloud on a Raspberry Pi; it's a bit underpowered for it. And the UI is not great, especially the Android app which is slow as molasses. Plus it only works on my local network. I know I could set up remote access through VPN or some other means, but it's extra work and extra security attack surface so I haven't bothered.
I'm using the VPN stuff which comes with my router (FritzBox) so no #selfhosting work there.
@M4x @nolan My LAN services run on a #TrueNAS box (an HP MicroServer actually). I am not a big fan of QNAP/Synology's NAS and I really appreciate the jails on #FreeBSD which really are a step forward on mantaining the services isolated, clean and updated.
The VPN is running on an EdgeRouter by Ubiquiti.
