Tools for Selhosted Heroes

I have been selfhosted some services for about 10 years. I started with Plex and a blog, and it slowly grew from there. Now I host a bunch of services.. But some services are harder to host internal on your network then others. The two big ones in my mind is backup and monitoring. Last weekend I finally found some providers that checks all my boxes ✅.

Projects I support

Fiio BTR 5 Linux

Just a quick writeup about the fixes that needs to be done to enjoy the fantastic little dac/amp on linux. USB Cable When using in cable mode, pulseaudio suspends the source if you are not playing anything on it. This results in some nasty disconnect.
