Hello friends, I am slowly getting into selfhosting and trying to convert my old Lenovo X230 laptop into a homeserver that I will use for backups, cloud storage and a few services for my friends.

What’s is your setup? What are you doing with it or what are you planning to do with it?

P.S.: The laptop screen is usually turned off of course :)

Don’t have a photo right now, but those cheap black plastic shelves are exactly rack size so I have one with a nice 28 port switch and a colorful assortment of old HP thin clients, some ARM boards, a few old laptops and a NAS.

Medium term plan is to try and run everything off 12V and connect it to a small Solar PV system. Already got the picoPSUs for it, but the PV panels will have to wait for next year.
