As I was fiddling with some automation scenarios at home, I thought of putting the Synology Network Attached Storage (NAS) to good use. That is, in addition to all the photo backup stuff it's already doing. At the end of last year, I wrote a blog post about building a simple system to maintain evergreen notes, based on Hugo, Docker, and, well, that's it - there are only Markdown files in the mix. Evergreen notes in this context are nothing other than a personal Wikipedia of sorts.
I love infrastructure and anything that has to do with it. That is - I love tinkering with different services and see what I can do to make them play nice with each other. I also like being efficient with what and how I deploy, and recently something dawned on my - I am spending way too much money on hosting my personal blog, that is 90% text. A recent analysis brought me to the number: 30$/mo.
