Tech Life Overview

The apps, technology and systems I use. I try to use things that protect my privacy and are security conscious. This usually means open-source software, or self-hosted solutions. I will update this as things change.

Instant Messengers:

Social Media:

Blogging:

WriteFreely (self-hosted): It's a very minimalist blogging tool. I found WordPress has way too many options, and buttons to fiddle with which distracts from actually blogging. This blog is hosted on this.

Apps

Ad Blocking

Computers

Phone

Xiaomi Redmi Note 5: I thought I could install LineageOS on this cheap Chinese phone but unfortunately I failed. Xiaomi makes it really difficult to install custom things on their phones and hardware. Avoid! In the future I will find another cheap phone that can have LineageOS on it, or will buy a good phone like a Librem5.

Home Server: Yunohost

All self-hosted things are running on my YunoHost server. I will make more detailed posts about this in the future. Self-hosting is not so difficult anymore. Installed apps: * Pi-hole – DNS ad/spyware blocking * Nextcloud – file storage/sharing, built-in CalDAV server * Transmission – bittorrent client * WriteFreely – blog * Searx – meta search client * Tiny Tiny RSS – RSS client
