Any fun self-hosted app or useful services you guys use on your own server?

For some weeks I have started to host my own git repository with gogs and take continious development into my control with jenkins and feel pretty neat.

Now I understand why my grandmother loves to raise her own food even when she could buy everything in the supermarket.

    Mailserver, webserver, 2 minecraft servers at the moment.

    But its on a vps, not at home. My server at home died 8 years ago and I found it easier to use an vps instead.

    @AI-Overlord Do set up your own mail server, especially if you can reserve a domain with your last name.
    All I say is firstname@lastname.tld ;)

    @Voxera I have one with postfix as well.

    I once used for a school exercise. Exercise was to send a spam mail to ourselves, first to our school mail (worked fine), then to any other mail server (usually gmail, but I used my own instead). When my mail server screamed at me (I can break rules, too. Goodbye.), I had a good laugh.
