    yes i know, but i can live without nextcloud &co for a pretty long while, I cant without email. I mean on my nextcloud is more sensitive data but not having acces to my email would really really hurt my life :-) but yes, in the end, i want to learn these things, and the only way to learn it is to do it i guess.

    But i will look more troughly into the gsuite/oauth offerings, as i might have some misconceptions there

    thank you for you answer. but it suffers the same/similar problem i mentioned above and i can never afford 5$ per user per month just for SSO :-/

    thank you for your answer. part of the whole idea is to have and give a local alternative to the big datasilos, so gsuite is out of question. And looking just now at AuthO which belongs to a 6 billion US company does not instill good feelings either :-)
    Is there a free/libre alternative? I would prefer having no SSO at all than use one of these two. what do you think about using the built in solutions of every service? its a lot less confortable but it seems i can fuck up a lot less.
    And yes, i dont do email myself, i let migadu do it for me. as that is to critical of an infrastructure.

    I'm setting up a server with nextcloud, plex, matrix and some other things I don't yet know, for some friends and family, (about 20 people if I get lucky)
    and now I heard of a thing called single sign on/unified login. (Login to different services with the same user/pw and/or login once, access to all services)

    so far I found out about Keycloak https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Keycloak

    is this what I'm looking for? does anybody have experience in this? Are there other/better/simpler solutions for this?

    something like this https://www.gpucheck.com/gpu/amd-radeon-rx-590 <-- this one I use or https://www.gpucheck.com/gpu/nvidia-geforce-rtx-3050-ti is still a good deal, and you can play anything you...

    something like this

    https://www.gpucheck.com/gpu/amd-radeon-rx-590 <-- this one I use
    or
    https://www.gpucheck.com/gpu/nvidia-geforce-rtx-3050-ti
    is still a good deal, and you can play anything you want. and you can switch and sell later (1-2 years) and get something at a reasonable price that blows away any console you can buy atm.
    like with any console generation before, they might be competitive when they are new, a bit down the road they have no chance to keep up.
    And if you factor in costs for games which are a lot cheaper on PC you break even fast.

    there is reasons to buy a console, there are different ones to buy a pc. I would get a pc because there you still have the slight chance that you/your kids might learn a lot more than just play games.
    If you just want an easy (as in ease of use) way to play games get a console. if you want to play together, get a switch.

    That only applies if you want an Uber-PC, just get some midrange components and you will have a nice gaming rig for 1000.- including screen and peripherals. You dont actually need the BEST GPU TM and the BEST CPU TM. thats just some "PC-Masterrace" bullshit.
    a decent midrange PC will still outclass any/most Console, is upgradable, you can do whatever with it, not just game and watch videos, the selection of games is crazy, eg Steam, Itch.io, Humble Bundle. and your kids might actually get an interest in IT and learn some stuff besides "just" gaming.

    most universities have some help and organizations for foreign students. so you wont be all on your own in a new place. check in with your local students-union or whatever it's called and do the same with places you are thinking about going to. often they can help you with a lot of stuff (getting a place, regulatory stuff, finding friends) and the whole thing will feel a lot less overwhelming fast. good luck my friend.

    edit: something I learned on my first travels, ask as many people for help/advice as you can until you find what you're looking for or find what you actually needed. if your friendly and polite nearly everybody will be happy to help you, and even if its just directions to somebody who might know

    I still might have some pics on my externals disk of the around 500 hour mark but will take a while until I get back home. more than a month :-/ I'm sorry but I bookmarked your comment and might actually remember to send it/post it here or the new thread.

    It was a beautifully organic looking factory with hundreds of trains tousands if not millions of belts :-) every item was automated, used every kind of powersource, used every sort of defense, defense and repair itself was automated. most of the things where nicely decorated, but there was not really any order to it, similar to how vaclav is building his factories, lots of trains and belts all over the place.
