Did you know that can be configured as a fantastic Google Photos alternative too? NC can index the metafata of your photos, show them in events, on a timeline and even on a privacy respecting map!

Really, the time is here (and has been here) to move away from people farmers and reclaim your privacy. Once and for all.

As always:

Nextcloud: Round 3 (or 4 or 5)

I’ve once again started the process of installing and setting up Nextcloud on one of my servers. It occurs to me that my Nextcloud instances always die a slow death. Something about that piece of software, I think, sort of just falls apart over time. This time I’m attempting to future proof it a little bit more than the previous times, but honestly I fully expect it to go about the same as usual. Then again, historically I have installed all kinds of plugins (or apps) and was running it on fairly low powered hardware. Setting it up on some decently powerful hardware on this go around though. I’ll also try to be more conservative with the app installs as well.

I might actually set up two separate instances and federate them together. Perhaps if I maintain multiple servers they’ll survive a bit longer? Or I’ll just be creating twice the amount of tinkering and maintenance for myself.

Got the new deployment running smoothly and mostly done with performance tuning.

A few months ago, I persuaded a client to abandon an external cloud system and use Nextcloud on their own server instead. Powered by FreeBSD and ZFS, it has already demonstrated its strengths on a couple of occasions (such as in the case of a snapshot rollback). This morning, they expressed the desire to abandon the various WhatsApp groups they use for coordination and to use a solution "all on their servers." I was inspired and quickly installed both an ejabberd and a Matrix server (Synapse) - which they will probably prefer, according to the latest news they sent me - on two FreeBSD jails.

Today, we have the awareness and experience of what it means to give our data to large companies, completely losing control over it. We have the tools, so why not use them?
And I'm really happy when someone like them, thanks to their willingness to try "new" solutions, realizes the alternatives to the colorful, advertised, warmly recommended (by salespeople) "proprietary" solutions.
