what hardware is ideal for a beginner looking to self-host on Yunohost?

As explained previously, this instance is still running on the Lemmy dev's free hosting offer which was graciously extended (thx!) a bit for me to look into transferring it to my own server. I haven't been making as much progress with it as I hoped in recent weeks (due to various factors), but to be honest the little work that I did put into it made me realize that I am really not a big fan of the tech-stack that Lemmy uses. As I have been running and using some other Fediverse software, I also realized that the communities-only nature of Lemmy is isolating it from the rest of the Fediverse and to be honest I am not too happy with the homegrown community lately. So I am seriously considering a reboot of using a different software and now might be a good time for it as there are only very few active users of this instance and I have to transfer it to my server soon anyway. Options that I considered are Pixelfed (for a more creators/artist focussed instance), Akkoma (to be closer to the main Fediverse) and the new Kbin. The linked roadmap convinced me that Kbin might be the best option. It uses a tech-stack I am much more familiar with and combines Lemmy like communities with Mastodon like microblogging. So while I have not 100% made up my mind yet, consider this an early warning that this instance is probably going to undergo some major changes and if you would prefer to stay on Lemmy, it might be better to migrate your account somewhere else. However Kbin is in theory compatible with Lemmy, so it might end up not such a big change after all. Do note however that there is no migration path, so accounts and communities would need to be re-created. Let me know what you think :)

Ah shit, here we go again

Junk Drawer Phone as a Music Streaming Server
By installing LineageOS on a galaxy s7 the old phone was turned into a self-hosted Navidrome server, with this approach you can use old smartphones like single board computers. The problem with this could be that depending on the model the battery could overheat if you leave it charging. It would be interesting to have a list of which smartphones are compatible with this approach.
