About 5 years ago I stopped pirating and started supporting companies by buying subscriptions or software ( mostly games, apps I use at work, tv shows / movies streaming services ). If it requires payment, I paid the price.

Companies started to screw both customers by delivering shitty products and employees by laying off ( I'm not in a big company, never will be but I feel bad for all the employees that are in this situation )

Started pirating everything, closed almost all of my subscriptions, currently building my home server for git, local ai and anything I need.

Now I'm planning to do some research to find some good replacements for cloudflare and a friendly host provider that is not all greed and doesn't have a history of massively laying off employees just because they overhired or overpromised.

Fuck you greedy capitalist pigs.

    Home server for Git? Or are you going to do it for all the services you need?
    What hardware are you using for this server?

    @gitstashio For now what I'm gonna use:

    - proxmox installed with 1 or multiple linux vms

    - docker

    - portainer

    - gitea for git

    - ollama + dolphin for ai

    - jellyfin for video streaming

    - wireguard for vpn

    - some no-ip ddns or static ip from the internet service provider

    The hardware will be a workstation with:

    - some intel cpu i5 / i7 with intel-vt

    - 64 / 128gb ram

    - a mobo that suports 2 network cards

    - 2 network cards

    - 4 HDD with 2tb or 4tb depending on the budget

    For now I don't have all the money to buy everything but month by month I'm doing progress.

    I know that at some point, some subscriptions are needed but not on those companies that had massive layoffs or a history of overpromising and underdeliver.

    This is applied only for personal use, for professional if the company requires it I'm gonna used it.
