### 2020-11-02 let's get started
After the advocating for gemini of ddevault i finally setup a gemini space on my machine to tinker around with it.
The move to our new house should be completed in a few days. Although there much left to do in the upcoming months, i hopefully will have more time to do some coding stuff again and add more content to this gemini space.

+# my self-hosting setup
+My gemini capsule is - in company with some other services - run at a server at my home. This site describes the
+The "server" is based in a small basement room in my house. There's no need for a air conditioning as we have rather stable 16 to 18° Celsius down there.
+Connection to the outer world is served by a asynchronous DSL connection with 100 MBit down, 30 MBit up stream.
+The machine itself is:
+- Celeron J4105 quad-core accompanied by 8 GB RAM
+- 2 SSD: 128 GB / and 1TB /data
+- small case with integrated power supply
+- idle power consumption (whole system): ~9.5 W
+I prefer the KISS principle, thus i use a very simple partitioning scheme with ext4/xfs. No LVM, btrfs or other fancy tools - the benefits of this are not relevant for my use case. In case of a failure it is very important for me to be able to access the data without complicated toolings. The failure is enough stress, no need to increase it even more with tools i'm not familiar with.
+A UPS will so be added to the setup.

+gemini is great for people who'd like to be indepented and self-host their services. For whom it may interest i've added a description of my setup. See the *info* section below.
### 2020-11-18 gemini gets interactive
Out of curiosity i started to implement a faq engine to be used with a cgi enabled gemini server. of course this utilizes SQLite, a project which i'm a great fan of. It will be open source and hosted on SourceHut, have look at the links below for the repo

gemini aims for simplicity, but there's ongoing chat on the mailinglist to add this or that feature to the spec.

+=> hosting.gmi What looks my self-hosting setup like?
Perl maybe considered oldschool by many, but it is still very good in text processing - which is the very core of gemini. Therefore it is obvious to use perl for cgi with gemini.
