Keep your recipes with Mealie

To keep track of recipes we use for cooking and grade them so we can either cook them again (or in worst case scenario never again), we started looking for a nice app to self host. And we found, we believe, a nice one in the name of Mealie. It is a nice clean interface,…

Bitwarden Update

Updated mail settings, which comes in handy if you forgotten your password or making use of other functions. Happily using 1Password for a long time, we started to get annoyed by the business model, where you either have to pay for every new major release, or start paying a monthly fee. By chance I ran…

NGINX Proxy Manager

It was brought to our attention that this nice solution was a good thing to try out. And of course we did, finding out that it is indeed a very welcome upgrade from the nginx/letsencrypt solution we were running since the beginning of our server.

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.…

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…
