And I know that they have a somewhat rudimentary GDocs but I don't have anyone else on my server to collaborate with, so I just use LibreOffice.
It is VERY satisfying to be in control of my destiny, so to speak.
@reliant I suppose the next step would be to find a friend or two to have a offsite backup stored at
@levisan I am a fan of my Synology NAS. There is a cloud function with DDNS that enables you to host and sync your files on a local server. I have mine in my house, enabled with DDNS. Works great. YEah, I’m dependent on Synology, but I physically own the server and have the files 20 feet from where I work.
@FezzyWhig I got my parents to buy one years ago just for backup stuff and didn't realise what all it can do.
I agree, I'd be totally fine being dependent on them because my data would stay on my property!
@levisan I've used Nextcloud a long time. Installed, uninstalled, gone back to it, etc. It's an excellent product. Just make sure you have good backups if you use it exclusively.
