    It's fast enough for me but I only really use Nextcloud as an upload box for other people to share photos and to be able to share files from my NAS so I guess it depends on what you want it to do.

    Basically at my router I only have port 80/443 (and some stuff for games but for simplicities sake let's pretend I don't) exposed and then Caddy is configured so that if a request for nextcloud.my.domain comes in it directs that traffic to the the nextcloud application running on some non standard port as you can only have one application running on the same port at once. You can do the same thing with Apache or Nginx, Caddy is just integrated with Let's Encrypt so it handles setting up SSL on stuff for me.

    I use Namecheap as my domain registrar and they support using ddclient for dynamic DNS.

    I run most of my stuff off of a 4gb Raspberry Pi 4 but I have an old Dell Optiplex box configured for Wake On LAN for when I run game servers and stuff for friends and need a bit more grunt/an x86 architecture.

    I run the following with Caddy in front of them to handle reverse proxying different subdomains as well as providing SSL automagically.

    +1 for the Ergodox-EZ.

    I ummed and ahhed about getting one for about six months and finally pulled the trigger. It took me a while to get used to but now it's so much more comfortable than using a regular keyboard that I bought a second one to use in the office.

    I'm currently chipping away at Bastion of Chaos by Bridgeburner. It's a slaughter style map with like >4000 enemies and the most gorgeous architecture you'll ever see in a Doom map.

    As someone who's listened to a lot of Happy Hardcore and the related louder, angrier, faster genre Gabber over the years, I've sat here for about 15 minutes trying to answer your question and honestly I don't really know how to answer. It's sort of musical junk food I guess? It's not profound in any way but it's not meant to be, it's music purely designed to dance to. I tend to listen to it when I'm in a bad mood or feeling tired but need to grind through work because I find it hard not to feel energised when listening to it.

    I also understand that it's great on ecstasy but I've never tried that myself.

    It turns out that one of the accessibility settings I had turned on disabled all aircraft damage. Now I've enabled damage it's better. I don't necessarily want an explosion but it's hard to judge if I stuck a landing or not if I can nose dive into the runway with seemingly no consequence

    Speaking as a casual the game is pretty fun. I played with some friends watching on Discord and trying to navigate my region based on roads and landmarks. It's a little weird that there doesn't seem to be any damage effects to the planes. I tried landing on my street and just kind of bounced off a bunch of buildings hilariously.

    Not sure I'd pay AU$100+ for it but with game pass it's well worth a go!
