My home and code server now has 2 TB of SSD storage and 16 GB of RAM. While I’ll be using the storage for backups, etc., I’m not quite sure what I can use the 16 GB of RAM for yet. What else can I run besides Home Assistant, AdGuard Home, Drone and Tailscale? I still have my VPS running my websites,…

Weirdly enough, the name Tailscale caught my eye and I decided to investigate what it is. I checked their website and it seems that they use Wireguard to do the kind of configuration I explained some time ago. I’m curious: besides the easyness of use, what other advantages do you see on using Tailscale over a manually configured Wireguard network?

Well… I moved recently and was thinking about setting up a VPN with my new fancy router. But I discovered something: the ISP put me behind a giant NAT. Didn’t even know that Carrier Grade NATs were a thing and it never happened to me back in Portugal. Suggestions? I want a simple way to access the network remotely: just for the machines, not for the Internet.
