For example, I 3d printed a box over my outlet to protect my cables from my bed pushing against it. In addition, my cables never fall to the floor so they’re much easier to grab.

            I have is as a docker in my UnRaid server. However, from what I’ve heard, the easiest way to get NC up and running real fast is in a Ubuntu server and installing Nextcloud from Ubuntu’s snap store. I can’t confirm that, but it seems legit, since it came from a DistroTube video in YouTube.

          Do you need to buy a domain and figure ddns for nextcloud?

          Last time I tried to use their ootb docker container it was hard to use it just from internal network.

            You will probably have to get a domain, but some of the ugly TLDs can cost few bucks for a year, so it’s not that bad.

            As for being able to access your Nextcloud from outside, if you don’t use it to share large amount of data often, I recommend looking into Cloudflare Tunell. It’s pretty easy to set up, and allows you to not only put a configurable firewall in front of your Nextcloud instance that you can for example geoblock traffic from other countries, but you also don’t have to deal with port forwarding, DDNS, or exposing your home network directly into the internet.

            The setup is simple, you just download their cloudflared service, install it with a token generated in their web management (that ties it to a domain and tells it what port it should expose) on your Nextcloud machine, and it will automatically connect to Cloudflare server that will act as a port forward, but without you having to expose anything on your home network directly.

            I don’t really access my Nextcloud from the internet that often, don’t use it to stream or share large files with large number of people, so I never had issues with it. But I’ve been told that it’s against Cloudflare ToS to use it for large data sharing, streaming or high-volume data transfers, so keep that in mind.

            But it’s perfect for accessing my Home Assistant and Nextcloud when I need it.

            You can DDNS and use duckdns or something like that. You should be fine.

          Yes, but actually no, if you want to access it remotely. DONT OPEN THE WEB PORTS TO THE INTERNET, rather use a vpn like wireguard to connect in to the home network.

          Also, backups.

        Not OC, but I’m using Kagi and super happy. Before I use Kagi, I didn’t realise how bad Google result is. Its results are poisoned by ads and SEO nowadays.

          I still am using Google and I hate how useless it has become since SEO started to become a thing in the last 5 or 10 years. Maybe I should try Kagi. Does it have location specific search results

              Yeah, since about 2016 it has started to get really bad though. I remember when I would be looking for a solution to a computer related issue, all the top results were super useful Tom’s Hardware and AnandTech forum posts. But of course nobody does SEO for forum posts because they’re just trying to help people not make money, so instead now all of the probably AI written crap is in the top results which half the time is only barely related to what I searched

      Also good is to always put something back where it should be. Like my work badge is always in the front pinch of my laptop bag and the first thing I do when I finish work is put it back into that pouch.

    Overstock.

    Buy two bottles of cleaner. One in the kitchen, one in the bathroom. Tool box lives in the garage, but I have spares in the kitchen drawer. Trash can in every room. Extra shoelaces sitting on the shoe rack. It doesn’t take up a lot of space and it makes life much easier when you don’t have to look for something.

        This is such a generational thing. My parents and grandparents would get shoes and have them resoled periodically. With a little care, a pair of shoes were expected to last decades. You used to see shoe repair shops in every neighborhood. I can’t remember the last time I brought a pair of shoes that could be resoled.

        it depends. I live in a studio, I still have a kitchen trash and bathroom trash, paper towels and cleansers in both. it’s just easier knowing I’ll always have quick access to clean up a mess. like cat vomit.

        ideally I’d also have a flashlight and first aid kit stashed in both places, but those have been less necessary and so fell off the critical re-supply list.

      Adding to this buy extra phone chargers for your work desk, car, suit case, and sofa so most any time you have a charger and cable ready to go.

    Labelled bag clips on all the stuff in the freezer. When something runs out, the clip goes onto a bit of string, hanging from the bottom of a cupboard. Instant freezer shopping list.

    Edit to note: The only weakness is that you only add things to your shopping list when they run out. The workaround is to have 2 bags of everything, though this wouldn’t suit everyone.
