Let's Fix Villages At Their Source
  • Did you take a look at VoxeLibre and how they implement villages? They recently announced to move away from just cloning Minecraft and now they want to build their own vision of the game. Maybe they are open for your suggestions to make villages a better experience!

  • Help for getting started with hardware
  • Yes, having friends who deal with hardware sounds very good.

    I learned a lot from this post about small form factor pcs having different mainboards than towers so I might get a micro atx for my old tower to stay flexible for the future.

  • Immich public roadmap
  • Thanks for the detailed writeup, I think I understood it properly now!

    Crazy that you have to pay for PhotoPrism to have more users!

    Maybe they add these features you want to Immich? Given that it's still in development.

  • I have a seagate external drive at home, do you know if that one can be opened too? But good to know, thanks.

    I will consider it, do you think a refurbished business 1L client would work too?

  • Help for getting started with hardware
  • Alright, I would like a NAS and (separated) a server with some small services (pi-hole or adguard, syncthing, jellyfin (getting the data from the NAS), and so on). I thought about running the small services with docker on a RPi 4 and the NAS on a refurbished business PC with SATA drives in the case (I checked ebay and there are mainboards with 4 SATA III connectors and PCI so I could even add more SATA connectors). In a second moment a backup server (maybe with borg) would be a good idea but I could also do manual backups with an external USB HDD for the time being. And I have a tight budget.

    This is roughly what I want to to with my system. A synology sounds nice but they are pricey and I'm not learning so much so I'd go another route if possible.

    Maybe it's best if I just hook up some USB drives to my Pi and get my hands dirty with that. If the performance is not too bad (like you said).

    This describes what I'd like to do. Budget is low and I don't have a lot of hardware laying around. For the capacity I don't know yet but for sure 6tb to start with. I'd like to try RAID (heard a lot, never tried it yet) and another backup (maybe something for the future).

  • This case looks good but is a bit out of my budget for now. But to understand this properly, the Node 304 fits a micro-atx mainboard? Which this one from gigabyte is, right?

    Most Dell and OEM parts won’t work on standard cases, FYI.

    This was very helpful, thank you! I would have spent money for nothing!

  • The link you posted is not working for me but doesn't matter. Thank you very much for the writeup!

    I found a few of these on ebay, refurbished business machines mostly. I think you can fit a drive or two inside there? The mainboards have SATA connectors. Maybe I could also take the mainboard and power supply out and put them in my old tower.

    Another thing I thought about was buying a mini pc, put it in my old tower, add a M.2 6xSATA card and put the drives in the bays of the tower.

    But probably I should just use my RPi400, hook up one or two big external HDDs (add RAID?) and start there. Then I can better decide what I want and need after testing Openmediavault for example. While talking about the RPi and booting from USB drives. Should I buy a cheap-ish USB SSD and boot from that and not from the SD card? What's the problem with SD cards?

  • Help for getting started with hardware

    I dived into the selfhosting rabbit hole once again and again I am stuck at the hardware part. I'd like to start small-ish to make it realisable. I thought about a NAS (Openmediavault probably). First I wanted to do it on a Raspberry Pi with an external hard-drive but then I read USB connected drives are unreliable and so on. Mini PCs are too small to house internal drives so should I go with a (refurbished) business PC from ebay and add some drives to it?But they usually come with Windows 10, which I wouldn't need but makes them more expensive. I also have at least one old PC case laying around but no mainboard or CPU for it, if that info might be important. Thank you in advance for helping a noob out!

    Edit: What I want to achieve: I would like a NAS and (separated) a server with some small services (pi-hole or adguard, syncthing, jellyfin (getting the data from the NAS), and so on). I thought about running the small services with docker on a RPi 4 and the NAS on a refurbished business PC with SATA drives in the case (I checked ebay and there are mainboards with 4 SATA III connectors and PCI so I could even add more SATA connectors).

    Is there a way to see all the posts/comments I upvoted?

    Or do I need to save all the interesting posts I want to be able to find again? Because Reddit has this feature iirc.
