Love it! Feel free to look around it's still very much a work in progress and relatively new, so if you see anything not right let me know!

Yeah, it's decent! There are a few rough edges around though... It took me a decent 2-3 weeks to get the thing running in the first place as there was a tonne of undocumented configuration variables that need to be set...

It's a good place to find like minded people and aggregate content across heaps of selfhosted blogs - that's the vision anyway!

Hey Guys,

Amateur self-hosting tech here. I'm looking to dig deeper into the community and hopefully break boundaries that hold me back due to location, lack of resources and unfair consumer practices with the knowledge i can gather from all corners of the net. Happy to be here.

Thanks again!!

Love it! Welcome. Hopefully you'll get to know a few people on here! We've got some real wizards when it comes to self hosting software / home projects / Homelabs etc. Let us know how you get on. If you get time we'd love to hear about some of your own self hosting tech / labs / containers etc!

Cheers,

Alex.

Hi All.

I'm from South Africa.
I've been playing with Plex and other selfhosted containers for a couple of years now. And I still get excited when I find a new container to test....

Loving it!

Awesome! South Africa is on my bucket list. One day... If you have some time i'm sure there would be a few of us who would love to hear a post about your own setup / containers and servers for Plex et al. Cheers, Alex.
