    It works just fine! Setting it up was relatively easy, too.

    I had a few snags, but I documented everything here https://wiki.gardiol.org/doku.php?id=services:fittrackee

    So, overall its mature enough for daily usage but:

    • FitTrackee only support gpx based activities so your indoor swimming or indoor bike will not be imported
    • Garmin link seems to be working only for one user, I didn’t investigate, but its not clear how to sync more than one user. Which is weird since fittrackee itself is multi-user.

    I hope the devs keep up the great work and those limitations will be removed.

    I want to go directly to the source, i mean, if i want to resolve, for example www.polito.it, i want to ask “it”, then “polito.it”… This is what Unbound should be doing.

    Instead, i can resolve it:

    server /etc # dig it @127.0.0.1
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.16.48 <<>> it @127.0.0.1
    ;; global options: +cmd
    ;; Got answer:
    ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 59860
    ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 0, AUTHORITY: 1, ADDITIONAL: 1
    
    ;; OPT PSEUDOSECTION:

    ;; QUESTION SECTION:

    Instead i cannot resolve polito.it:

    server /etc # dig polito.it @127.0.0.1
    
    ; <<>> DiG 9.16.48 <<>> polito.it @127.0.0.1

    Nothing appears in the logs. It resolve fine using 8.8.8.8 as upstream DNS.







  • I I agree with everybody else saying that the email server should not be self-hosted. But I have a specific exception to this rule, which I was keen to try, but I never did this or take this with a pinch of salt.

    I do self-host on my services, but at the moment I keep myself hosted email on a public server, not on my home server.

    Since I am using a tunnel to access my services from outside, my home server is actually using my public server ip. moving my email self-hosting to my home server would not actually change the front facing IP address of that email server, and no harm would be done to my mail server.

    But is it really worth it? Probably not. Since I would still need some kind of backup email server out on the internet for the rare situations where my home server is cut from the internet due to power outage or ISP being down.

    You want full reliability for your email server. So your home connection without UPS or backup connection isn’t going to cut the cheese fully.

    So, I would suggest you don’t self-host your email on your home server. You can still self-host your email, but on a public server. Be aware, though, that is a difficult task which will require lots of effort and many months to get it done right and accepted everywhere.
