What I'm Hosting

Photos

This is my photo gallery running on a Piwigo instance. Take a look at some of the photos I'm proudest of and see what I've been taking recently.

E-book Library

Instead of scouring various sites to find the one e-book I've purchased (looking at you, Humble bundle), I am self-hosting in one location using an calibre-web container

Comics Library

Much like my e-books, I wanted the digital comics I own all in one location. Instead of Calibre, this is hosted using a Komga container reverse-proxied using swag.

Email

Life's too short to run your own mail server - But not if you're using Mail-in-a-Box! It's how I've configured email for this domain.

Prometheus

How I'm monitoring performance, checking for errors, and just generally keeping tabs on my self-hosted fun.

Alexander Gracie
Alexander Gracie
Former Linode System Engineer

I was lucky enough to work with Steve for several years at Linode. Steve produces consistently high quality and reliable work. The customer is paramount in his judgement, his honesty and thoroughness in communication creates an excellent customer experience. Steve's experience as a seasoned Linux administrator shines in his creative solutions and in the mentorship he provides to his peers.

Former Armed Gamer Freelancer

I have known Stephen for several years now, and he is a pleasure to work with. I was always given clear instruction, reasonable deadlines, and more than adequate compensation. His manner is professional, respectful, and genial and it's clear that his projects are well thought-out and backed up with enthusiasm. Stephen is excellent at managing groups and ensuring that we all had what we needed when we needed it. 10/10 would recommend to a colleague.

Dave Sylvia
CEO of RGB LAN

Steve is a passionate worker and a loyal friend. I have known Steve for 10 years and worked with him for 6, and in that time, he has never let me down. Steve runs all of the social media and marketing for RGB LAN, a charity gaming event that we created together. His department requires near-zero oversight because I know it’s in good hands. If he ever runs into a problem, he comes to me with solutions instead of questions. His ever-evolving skill-set is an invaluable asset to any organization.
