I've been looking to upgrade my custom PC build which has been running strong since 2015. Going to move over to an AMD Threadripper 32-core CPU from my 4-core i5-4690k.
These are the components I'm planning to get but I'm waiting on updates from AMD this year and the following reviews before committing to the build. It's a beast.
#WordPress Group and Column blocks that have CurateWP
2.0 blocks within them will present new controls, allowing you to change multiple CurateWP blocks at once!
Check out this early demo:
Linode makes it so easy to setup your own dynamic DNS through their API and CLI tools.
Makes it easy to expose specific services on a homelab and use Let's Encrypt SSL certs.
Decided to use an old Macbook Air (2c/i7/2GHz) with a broken backlight as my cheap #homelab with my EX2100 NAS for now.
Setup OpenVPN, Portainer, Nginx Proxy, Pi-hole, and Nextcloud so far.
External access only available through VPN but I may expose some services in the future.
Personal philosophy on selfhosting
There are a lot of things I would like to selfhost and play with but its clear that I just don't have the time to do all of it. With every extra server, service and layer complexity that's more and more time and difficulty setting up and troubleshooting and fixing if things go wrong. Maximum simplicity and utility gained in the least amount of time is where I get excited.

As I've revealed in my last Patreon post, I've been working on adding end-to-end encryption APIs into Mastodon as an upgrade to the direct message system.
Any and all technical details available at the moment are here:
An implementation guide for app developers is being worked on.
New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.
Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.
It will take some work.
If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.
Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.
Today marks the beginning of my journey away from Twitter and Facebook as my primary social media presence.
I'm starting this instance primarily for family and friends in an effort to help them make the journey.
My hope is that someday Mastodon and the #Fediverse become the norm.
