I would like to invite you all to test the project that a friend and me has been working on for a few months.
We aim to offer a fair, cheap and trusty alternative to proprietary services that perform data mining and sells information about you to other companies/entities.

Our goal is that users can (if they want) remain anonymous against us - because we are not interested in knowing who you are and what you do, like or want.
We also aim to offer a unique payment system that is fair, good and guarantees your intergrity by offer the ability to pay for the previous month not for the next month, by doing that you do not have to pay for a service that you does not really like.

Please note that this is still Free Beta, and we need your valuable experience about the service and how we can improve it. We have no ETA when we will launch the full service, but with your help we can make that process faster.

With this service, we do want to offer the following for now:
Nextcloud with 50 GB storage, yes you can mount it as a drive in Linux :)
Calendar
Email Client that you can connect to your email service (
SearX Instance
Talk ( voice and video chat )
Mirror for various linux distros

We are using free software for our environment - KVM + CEPH on our own hardware in our own facility. That means that we have complete control over the hosting and combined with one of the best ISP in the world - Bahnhof - we believe that we can offer something unique and/or be a compliment to your current services if you want to have more control over your data.

    No admin access, but if we can write a secure plugin we can maybe solve that somehow :)

    First thing I noticed is, it's PHP.
    CURIOUS to know the reason behind this decision. Mind sharing?

    Where can i report typos ??
  • 2
    @Debugmed There's this address at the end of his post, so I guess that should be the one: feedback@operationtulip.com

    @Condor Oh? Didn't have any issue with one > 40 characters.
    He wanted some feedbacks, he's going to have some! Haha
  • 2
    @Jilano 256 characters here with special symbols 😛 maybe I should shorten it a bit. Kinda sucks that I can't use tulip@nixmagic.com as an email address anymore though, as it's apparently already registered 😔
  • 2
    @RantSomeWhere my password manager enables me to use such long passwords, so of course I use them.. lengthy because I can 😎
    (Seriously though, anything longer than 20 chars or so should suffice)
  • 1
    @Condor Fair enough, but I couldn't be arsed to tweak my settings whenever a stupid website would ask me for something shorter. Haha

    @Jilano emails are so slow ... i expected a slack or smth like that

    @RantSomeWhere
    $1-$3 is the price we aim at.

    @Jilano
    Anything, we need testing on every aspect.
    We are also open to suggestions
  • 3
    @Debugmed Yes and no. Since it's not their main job (as I understand it), you can't expect them to answer right away anyway, so emails are okay, in my opinion.

    @Linux Duly noted. I shall try to break things.

    @Linux create a feedback slack group :D

    Setup some non email based feedback collection mode, as it is a pain in the ass to go through all of them.

    @Jilano it is for archiving purposes :D

    @Debugmed

    @Debugmed

    What do you mean? It works now?
  • 1
    @Linux i mean, the ticketing system to report UI typos, bugs and stuff like that :)
  • 1
    @Linux I love the human-readable summaries in your Terms of Use xD
    Is this something you guys added, or is it standard in your country? (considering the humour, I'd say the former)

    You think so? It must be an illusion that we think that it is slow :p

    It is going to improve alot, when we get more nodes for ceph

    UPDATE,

    We are going to move the Nextcloud service to the subdomain "cloud.operationtulip.com" in the coming days.
