I keep wanting to make my own multipurpose server for all of my projects and maybe a node of Hubzilla for my friends and family, but whenever I start, my brain just shuts down and I stop caring. It just seems like too much effort to maintain. I know that at least one of the apps that I'm working on will need to have a nice, sturdy setup, but it's not quite ready yet to really look for a solution.
I like web hosts because they take all the questioning out of hosting contentâ€”they manage everything that my code runs on and that's awesome. But they get expensive really quickly!
I probably just need to get over the money block in my mind and start paying again. It's just such a pain to me.
