@aeveltstra @greyor @resynth1943 @emanuel Very interesting to read. I am trying to do similar things myself. Effort involved in hosting all your services, as well as protecting all devices (while keeping them usable) was an on/off task for 3yrs. Settled on a complex setup involving multiple isolated VMs including pfSense, Nextcloud, LOOL (compiled from source), Mastodon, Mailserver and various other things for backup /monitoring etc. Managed to squeeze it all into a (fast) NUC with < 40Watts.
