rathole – ngrok alternative

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

Some time ago I tried to make my Nitter instance available on the Internet from home via Tailscale, Caddy and an own building block in between, but stopped it again a short time later because it didn’t work that well somehow. Today I found out about rathole, and what can I say? It works great and seems to be much faster than my previous solution!

I’m currently “managing” (or better say storing) my photos using Nextcloud. Whenever I take photos with the camera, I copy them to a YEAR/MONTH based folder structure. Also the photos from my phone get automatically uploaded to a folder with all phone photos.

Nextcloud is my favorite cloud

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

I have just updated my Nextcloud install from Nextcloud 16 to Nextcloud 17. It’s a Docker-based installation on my Odroid HC2, which I use for a lot of self-hosted softwares. (Thanks to Docker I can forget about all things PHP!)
