Well, I’m Florian Jacob, an avid Linux user and free software enthusiast in general. Let’s see what I’ll actually end up posting about - I won’t promise to write about any (tech?) topics in specific, but as I’m up to reconfigure my virtual private server from scratch, so I guess the next posts will be on how to self-host your own website, jabber & mail server, ownCloud instance and similar kind of stuff.
I strive to get a replacement for all that services one usually gets from whatever service provider or “the cloud” these days running on my own server. Later on my own hardware, if I can afford it. I’ll report the troubles I run in, and write guides on how to set up those services. So if in the end no one will actually read this blog, at least I sat down and documented why and how I did everything, as I’m sure I won’t remember anything when the server setup needs to be fixed in the future. ;)
Other topics I hope to write about include the great ownCloud project (maybe writing that sentence makes me contributing to the project more often again, I didn’t do anything in the last months I have to admit. :/ ), (game-) programming, and maybe even some gardening or tales from the newly-created pen&paper role playing group I set up with my fellow students a few days ago. Let’s see. :)
