Matrix Synapse server setup guide
The last few days have been A Lot. I would like to start this blog post before I go anywhere else with it with some encouragement for those who have the means to do so to donate to any or all of these bail funds for protestors or find other ways to support your local BIPOC community.
New self-hosting experiments
As I’ve detailed previously on this blog, I mostly maintain my own web services. Stuff like my website, mail server, so on and so forth - I’m handling it with my own preferred architecture rather than outsourcing to a managed provider. Recently, I’ve been on a kick looking at what else I could take on on my domain, or what makes sense for me to explore.
On content ownership
A quick one today. I wanted to touch on why I chose to redevelop the site as opposed to, say, just moving over into Medium or Blogger or something where I could just write and not worry about maintaining the website1. I did give serious thought to scrapping the content and just setting up redirects to Medium for a while.
