With all the talk of #Signal and #distributed #IM lately, I thought I'd go a step further: here's a roundup of secure off-the-grid messengers: changelog.complete.org/archive These all use strong #encryption, provide #privacy, and can be used without any Internet connection at all.

#briar is an interesting hybrid; while it uses #Bluetooth instead of longer-range #LoRa, it doesn't need any extra hardware and can route IMs over #Tor, #Bluetooth, or local #Wifi (even w/o Internet). @briar

OMG Y'all HairyLarry turned me onto Yunohost and holy cow! If you have been wanting to run your own server at home this stuff is the real deal. Integrated LetsEncrypt, email, and everything, even dyndns is setup for you if you use their setup. I'm really excited as it also has software I'd never heard of before like Grocy and Firefly III. Really cool project if you want to run stuff at home but you're tired of administering servers by the time you get home and just wanna push a button and go. Anyway, its the first excitement I've had in 2021. Oh they also have peertube and mastodon so I might move to a single user instance over there soon too.

So over the holidays my daughter asked for a gaming PC, so I asked her to do the work of spec'ing it out, learning about the components, and building it. She ended up buying a case that has no 5.25" drive bays and now I feel so old that this is even possible.
