Self-hosting: still getting better

19 February 2017

Several years ago, I began to self-host some services and it's quite fun to do. Today, as I'm now working as a devops/sysadmin I will explain what self-hosting is, its pros and cons and how to improve practices.

Solus may be the solution to Linux's problems

27 November 2016

It's also a good way to find somebody you just met at a party or an old friend with whom you lost contact some years ago. However, I find Facebook has a much worse impact than a good one and I think we should reduce our usage of it.

Getting free with Fairphone 2

09 September 2016

Among the reasons why I bought the Fairphone 2 is its engagement about open source. I wish with this phone to rely the most possible on free software and to control everything on my phone. This way, I'm not obliged to always buy new hardware because of software updates even though it's still working. Also, I can use the services I wish like my own cloud (powered by Owncloud haha!) instead of Google's, Apple's or Microsoft's clouds on which I don't know what is happening. Good news: Fairphone released its own open source operating system based on Android called Fairphone Open.
