Calibre-Web

In or last two articles we announced the move from ubooquity to two other GUI’s to handle comics and books on our server. This article is about handling the books. As we already use Calibre, it was not such a big leap to Calibre-Web, as this is considered the GUI for Calibre. Just as with…

Komga

As mentioned in our last post, looking for a replacement for ubooquity as our comic book reader, we stumbled upon Komga, and we liked the way it looked. After some dry running we even decided to hook it up with nginx, making it possible to make use of it more secure outside our network. This…

LOG4j and other crap …

If you read about this, hear about it, and it becomes an item in the workplace, I admit, we got a little worried about our network. As big fans of ubiquity equipment, we have a dream machine to help us stay as safe as possible from the big bad internet. If you look in the…

Goodbye Ubooquity

As you know, we use ubooquity for reading comics and books, and are very happy with the way it works. But sometimes you get an irritating itch to change things. Ubooquity is simple, works as promised and served us for some time now, bet we were looking for a change of scenery, so we decided…

As explained in another post, the internet is not a safe place. Also we sometimes used the “.env” file for certain parameters. Another thing we played…

Samba Server

Now you know we are big Apple fans, so it should come as no surprise that we have an Apple TV (actually several . . .) So it stands to reason that we need to make our media files available on the network. Now there are probably more ways to do this, but as the…

rSync Server

As promised, the followup on the Synology versus our server solution. So we knew that the Synology liked to use rsync, so logically we searched for a docker to do just that, and found this one. It does the job, and the server is recognized by the Synology, and is happily making backups ever since.

Duplicati

Before there was this great server I build together with my son, I had a Synology to keep valuable data. And to make it even safer, I ran backups to the Synology of my long time best friend. Now I liked the packages that were on Synology, and for some time was playing with the…

Ubooquity

Another little gem in all its simplicity is Ubooquity. If you have books and comics, and you would like to be able to read them on-line, this is the best one we found.

NextCloud

We came across nextcloud in our search to have something to store files and/or share files, and it turned out to be so much more than that. And the beauty of it, is that it is totally free, as long as you do not use it commercially. It is packed with lots of features. Have…
