Fair point. I rolled the dice and have been happy with this one, but you're right on both accounts. StarTech is a trusted brand and $20 is pretty affordable.

Don't pay almost $20 for just a cable, pay $3 for this. it's an enclosure you can put your 2.5in sata drive in to connect it with usb3. I have several, work like a charm https://a.co/d/8Z2VPso

If you deployed with docker composr you just change the image and hit redeploy. Super simple.

Why not switch your registration to cloudflare. They are awesome as long as you want to use their DNS.

I too would like to know the difference between the two.

Sure wish there was an easy way to do this with Lemmy.

Just configure your outbound SMTP to use sendgrid or some other. SMTP provider. I realized this isn't 100% self housing then, but you could still self host the inbound mail. Self housing outbound SMTP just isn't worth it for most people IMHO due to spam lists.

Does lol like the prices have gone up a tad, but I just looked and could still pick up a Wyse 5060 with 8gb memory for about 33 USD shipped. Doesn't seem to include power supply or ssd so add about $10usd each for those maybe $55 or so.

Can't say what prices are like in Europe tho.

Thin clients off eBay. I picked up a Dell Wyse with 8gb memory, 4 cores, 16g emmc, and a 256G M.2 SSD for about $40. Includes the case, power supply, power button, etc. Still uses very little power. Install the x86_64 version of dietPi on that and it's been Rock solid running my docker projects.

Also picked up and HP T620 with similar specs. Haven't started using it yet but I expect similar results.

Much better deal than RPi and for most use cases equal or better able to do the job.

Great for daily mindless scrolling.
Still has a ways to go before it's as useful as reddit was for searching for specific information tho.
