oh fuck off.

with rare situational exceptions, every neatly packaged proprietary software thing which seems both convenient and non-intrusive will eventually go down this path.

the network is simply too accommodating an environment for assholes to resist exploiting to its fullest for doing bad things, and to a first approximation assholes are the determining factor in running every business bigger than a lemonade stand.

@brennen Wait. NAS service in the cloud? -____-

@brennen Have you checked out alternatives? I’m pretty happy with Nextcloud running on Debian at home. I just stuck a bunch of hard drives into an old HP desktop.

@euclid yeah, i kinda made the decision to go for something polished and purpose-built out-of-the-box last time i was thinking about this - and it _is_ a nice product, but the decline was inevitable. when this one dies or becomes entirely untenable 'cause of software updates, it'll probably be debian on a custom built box full of drives.

@brennen Understandably. I chose Mac as my daily driver. The offline analyzer seems to be the beginning of more similar decisions Apple will chose. I'm thinking my next PC purchase will be Lenovo with Fedora. The Nextcloud setup has been rock solid however.
