and welcome to this blog of mine. Sometimes I feel like sharing something (imho) interesting with the world and this is the place where I put it.
Feel free to give some feedback, especially if I’ve made a mistake.
I’d like to receive mails at my TLD, which is a premium feature for basically all mail providers I’ve seen. Having access to a (virtual) private server opens up the option to run a private mail server though. This seems like a daunting task because of the many moving parts and security concerns. Luckily there are (external) NixOS modules for that - providing an abstraction layer on top of many packages and their configurations with sensible defaults:
I own an Xiaomi Mi A1 with LineageOS 15.1 (unofficial) and microG installed. There are three problems:
OTA wasn’t working when I installed the ROM, so no easy updates. Encryption had issues when I installed the ROM and there still seem to be some now. Encrypting on stock ROM is recommended. There’s a problem with Whatsapp and microG, when first running it. My aim is to install the official LineageOS 15.
I’ve been using NixOS for quite a while, but didn’t really commit to it at first. This resulted in Windows taking up most of my disk space and I tried to be clever with partitioning too .. which bit me a lot. And that’s the main reason for reinstalling NixOS this weekend: I need disk space! My root partition has a size of 10G, because that ought to be enough, when I’m saving large stuff like games elsewhere, right?
