Our Cloud

Having our own server, we found some pretty nice things to do.

For starters, we created our own timemachine for backups of our Apple devices.

Of course this great site

A great free product like NextCloud, and much more . . .


We play around with creative solutions for all our needs!

We like to experiment with our server and at the same time provide a stable environment. This is a delicate balance, but we like it that way.


Important Bee’s

These Bee’s are the ones that make and keep the hive buzzing . . .
