rate how terrible is this idea: moving my Nextcloud data to Wasabi (set it up as an external storage)

so the thing is I set it up on a cheap VPS from Aruba, but can't expand that 20 GBs of storage

inb4 just set it up on raspberry pi with a hard drive at home - Aruba is 4,92 PLN, unlocking ports on my router is 4,99 PLN (seriously, there's no user config and everything has to be done by ISPs' employees during a call), and apart from the hardware costs it would have power outages every few months and network outages almost every night

@selfisekai and disk outages every time you kill your disk by using it with a rpi

@michcio I take 2 HDDs to school in my backpack everyday and nothing happened yet 🤷

@selfisekai i mean if you're not keeping them spinning 24/7 with a questionable phone charger i guess it's fine

@michcio external power supply? lmao, taking power from USB port

@selfisekai exactly what i mean, powering a disk through a wobbly raspi which is in turn powered by a wobbly whatever
@selfisekai that sounds like a fun ISP from hell. Do they do cgnat or something?

@Dee they use config provisioning for all devices so every time a router boots, it connects to their servers first to get a config and

@selfisekai an alternative for paying 4,99 for unlocking ports, you can try using reverse SSH port forwarding, I do it on my raspberry pi, and it doesn't work __that__ terribly.

@redsPL @selfisekai or you could pay 4.99 and have one bottleneck instead of two

@314 Setting up the port forward might be more cumbersome tho. Remember that @selfisekai's parents might not be the most optimistic people about hosting a server at home, probably 24/7, and IDK if she'll be able to talk to the ISP herself.

@314 @selfisekai I'm looking at it mostly from "ISP will make problems" perspective.

besides that yeah, port forwarding would be easier

@redsPL @selfisekai i mean i'm nitpicking your english this time, not the idea. i understand why forwarding is better in this case, it's just, you don't say something is "more cumbersome" and follow it up with explanation of how it's easier (so less cumbersome)
@redsPL @selfisekai sorry for the silly complaining, i'm in program semantics and verification class right now so i'm very picky about semantics i see

@314 @selfisekai Oh, yeah, sorry. I haven't slept well last night, so I might be writing like a ten year old

@314 it's almost 250 times more than my internet access at home

@selfisekai @314 @redsPL netia has shit router but at least you can forward ports, got cheap ass tp-link router and i have bit more freedom

@Jeder the thing about Multiplay is you can't change your router, it's connected to optical fiber directly
@314 @redsPL

@selfisekai @314 @redsPL what i have done in my house is that i still use netia router as a modem and i connected that tp-link router to it and netia router is working in bridge mode, i didn't even think about replacing it
