I tried to quit Firefox. I can't.

TL;DR I’m frustrated by Mozilla, but don’t see many alternative browsers that have such noble goals as Firefox. Introduction I have a confession: I tried really hard to quit Firefox, but I can’t. I’ve been using Firefox since the single-digit release days, and I’ve been publishing my Firefox config for five years now. In a recent experiment, I used Brave Browser exclusively for three months, but ended up moving back to Firefox....

The 'best' way to run DokuWiki in Docker

Introduction I’ve been trying to get my homelab applications moved from running on VM/LXC to Docker. There’s nothing wrong with VMs or LXC containers, but I’m trying to manage fewer servers and “snowflakes” (even though I do my installs with Ansible). The application that started my homelab journey was DokuWiki. It’s a self-hosted wiki, written in PHP, that requires no database. You write in a Markdown-like syntax (not Markdown) and your data is stored in plain TXT files on the filesystem....
