This is an interesting expirence for us https://www.datacenterdynamics.com/en/news/ovh-fire-while-police-investigate-cause-ovhcloud-promises-free-backups-future/ we lost our #xmpp chat server in this fire.
Makes me think about the project and the #geekproblem that has blocked the last 10 years of rollout. Our #OMN plan has ALWAYS been home hosting of our content. BUT this has been BLOCKED due to security issues that to me are beyond pointless - looking at this fire you can kinda see the point in my view. Beyond pointless...
@witchescauldron Sorry to hear that you lost your XMPP server in the fire.
This is why we support decentralised platforms like #Peertube as much as possible. Its only a matter of time until there is a #federated version of #MicrosoftGithub/#Gitlab. That is the next frontier for #ActivityPub in our view.
We could imagine #FDroid being an influential node in the network. Maybe even the network will share the apks they produce also.
Nonetheless, a very, very exciting project.
Not to mention decentralized backup. In my opinion there are a couple of fundamental areas #selfhosting solutions still need to work on, including encrypted, automated offsite backups, load balancing and ease of installation / management (eg checking for blocked ports, routers without NAT loopback etc).
That said, #Yunohost is making excellent, steady progress.
