I imagine you don't have the STUN port open. I realize that's undocumented so I filed https://github.com/tailscale/tailscale/issues/3419 to update our docs.

How long before the Synology Package Center update?

v1.18.0 has a massive improvement for Synology, the ability to just hit a checkbox to get it to be an exit node. This change was made 5 days ago; how long should I expect to wait for it to show up in the Package Center?

Great suggestion. And if you want a managed solution there’s also Tailscale, which is based on WireGuard.

I think jrnl may be exactly what you're looking for. You can do quick entries directly from the command line or have it open your favorite text editor. It handles encryption, date and time stamps, tags, etc. I used it for a long time before I decided to switch back to old-fashioned pen and paper. As for syncing, I'd recommend syncthing, which is amazing in general.

I'm the author of that blog post. So,
- I did not use it as a backup system. Due to circumstance, my backups were borked and I was too busy/poor to fix them up. Syncthing was used to sync my passwords, Org mode notes, and a specific two-way sync folder with the phone. Importantly, the first two were read only, i.e. the phone only had read access. Regardless, stuff on the remote, i.e the computer were deleted.
- I don't blame Syncthing because I lost my stuff or I had no backups. I blame them however because their software failed destructively. It should of course fail when the config file is weird, but deleting files on two devices despite permissions only allowing readonly access is tho unacceptable. This is kinda equivalent to nginx deleting your htdocs because a symlink in sites-enabled was broken or /.../sites-enabled was a file instead of a folder. If you don't have a backup of htdocs, that's your fault, but that doesn't mean it's a sane way to fail. The best way is to panic and tell the user: "I'm not touching files before this is fixed". Even rm(1) in coreutils has this sort of precautions, not allowing you to run "rm /" willy nilly.
- I should admit that I don't really make that distinction very clear in the blog post itself tho. It was written with anger after the incident, so I was not as nuanced/clear as I could've been.
- The point of the blog post was to advice against relying on Syncthing and to point out that its failure modes were coded sloppily. Tbf it was more like a note to self because never had analytics on my website so I had no idea if anybody read them with any frequency. I've seen it be linked from a couple places recently tho, and I haven't changed my mind, partly because I haven't been keeping up after seeing attitude like https://github.com/syncthing/syncthing/issues/4345
Afterwards I did go back to using syncthing for a while to sync files b/w laptop&phone but confined to a specific share folder only. After that brief period I've been relying on KDE Connect to push files between a Linux laptop and an Android phone. I botched backups a couple more times tho, as the big banner on the website testifies to.
That is a somewhat combative thing to say.
We see a NextCloud dev explaining that background uploads don't work herehttps://github.com/nextcloud/ios/issues/215
And we can see syncthing devs lamenting the many issues with an iOS client here https://github.com/syncthing/syncthing/issues/102
It may be the case that file eventing now works, but a quick check with an iOS dev friend suggests that the filesystem sandboxing is too restrictive to be meaningful anyway.
Further on this issue, consider that a functioning syncthing client is a node in a p2p network, so must be able to advertise and listen to requests in the background as well as the background jobs that NextCloud requires (as NextCloud is centralised it doesn't need node level co-ordination) - so a partially working NextCloud client is good enough, but a partially working Syncthing client is woefully broken.
* There doesn't seem to be much progress on an official iOS app, but it is something that users are asking for. An unofficial proprietary app called Möbius Sync does exist for iOS.
* S3, Dropbox, and other cloud storage options are not officially supported, but you can always back up one of your nodes to cloud storage on your own.
