Since people are going on and on, that #Selfhosting is not just running a script, let me clarify this:
Self-hosting is like gardening. Yes, it needs time and love. But mostly for making new stuff or big changes happen. When you do it properly it can boil down to a few minutes a week, as you maybe just need to water your plants in the garden.
It's a hobby, not everyone needs to do it. There are professional services as alternative, but it's nice to share with friends.
@sheogorath yeah, and when you (or others) depend on it and something breaks unexpectedly it can burn down your whole weekend.
@amenthes As it can happen in your garden, when a tree falls over.
I don't know why we make such a big deal out of it.
