A small site for a small family


Pi-Hole is a tool we have added to our network to improve security and control online.


Our home network is not something we can share with family except when they are visiting. But, when they do, we have the cutest, tiniest, little device making their internet experience just a little bit nicer, a little bit faster.

New mail server

A pre-announcement of a service upgrade being prepared.


We are always keeping an ear out for new tools, additional tools, which might be useful for family members. One which is popular is a complete e-mail package, including spam scanning, anti-spoofing, webmail and support for mobile and desktop clients.

Nextcloud news

Some recent updates and additions to our Nextcloud instance

#Nextcloud is a massively important tool in my life, and a few of our family members as well. And the past few months have seen a lot of new functionality and two recent upgrades; time to explain some of the shiny bits.

Pixelfed redux

The Pixelfed experiment failed.

Twenty-four hours or so of testing and researching, and the one thing a photo-sharing site needs turns out to be missing. Sharing with the internet.


Photo sharing is a thing we want to do. We are giving Pixelfed a try.


Photo sharing is for everyone. Whether it is brag shots of the (grand)baby, obsessing about fashion, cats, or documenting police brutality, a platform to publish photos to the online world is huge.
