New page on my site describing my "personal cloud" and the stuff I have .
If you're self-hosting-curious, take a look - maybe you'll get some ideas, and maybe I can help you!

@cb good write up.

Why did you move from mattermost to xmpp ?

@tshrinivasan thanks!
I moved for a few reasons: xmpp is much lighter (in terms of system resources) than mattermost, xmpp is more open, there are more ways to interact with xmpp (many different clients, libraries in many languages), xmpp is more mature (it's been around for ages and is not likely to go away anytime soon)

Probably the biggest reason is all the CPU and RAM mattermost was taking up on my $5 droplet... I'm already running my pleroma instance there, and the server was choking!

At first I didn't think I'd be able to do what I envisioned in xmpp, but with some tips from some friendly folks, I've got things working!

@cb I love what you do and share, and am constantly impressed by how busy you are. Keep up the good work!

@Flophouse_Sam thanks for the kind works ☺️

@Flophouse_Sam um... * words ! (it's still early where I am ☕️☕️☕️)
