Hello? Is this thing on?

So here we are again, nuking my blog and redoing it. This time I’ve decided to go with Hugo paired with the Anubis theme (as very evident by the footer). I’ve moved all my services back to the cloud with a 1GB RAM VPS. Was a bit tough to cram all my services in there but it works and is actually one of the reasons why I decided to ditch Ghost. Don’t get me wrong, it’s an incredible platform but a lot of the things it offered, I Just didn’t need.

Lots of things happened in my internal network as a result. Internal services are obviously kept in my home network, but I’ve kept the UniFi controller in my home network and just used a cloudflare tunnel to expose it. Thanks UniFi for being an absolute memory hog. I also decided to move from docker-mailserver to maddy, was a breeze to set up and it has a very small footprint in my system. Along this I also switched back to rootful podman from docker. And also gave every publicly facing container its own IPv6 address.

Maybe I’ll get sucked back into the minimalist rabbit hole? Who knows. All I know right now is Hugo will be my main platform for now, probably forever. It just works.
