Using a VPN provider vs self-hosting a VPN
I have seen the following argument (summarized here as I understand it): *Despite the promises that VPN providers make, it is known that they will often monitor your traffic, collect logs, might share your information, and will collaborate with law enforcement. Renting a VPS and running an OpenVPN server on it and using that as your VPN, is better - because you have full control over the logs. Let's assume we trust the VPS provider to adhere to their TOS and privacy policy.* To talk about a concrete typical usecase, I am thinking about how this applies to downloading illegal torrents. In my current view, the only scenario in which the self-hosted option makes sense is if you pay for hosting using crypto and reveal no personal information during the process. Otherwise using a VPS would be virtually the same as downloading it through your ISP - and in some cases even worse - because the VPS provider might be more easily pushed to throwing you under the bus if abuse is reported since this might be a TOS violation. On the other hand, a VPN provider has a much larger motivation to protect users against this because the way that users perceive these protections is fundamental to their business model. So, is there a reason to self-host a VPN instead of using a VPN provider? If so, should the VPS be acquired anonymously, or are there ways to protect yourself while using a provider that you gave your personal information to?

[Question] about NAS operating system
I bought a 2 bay NAS and I plan to flash it with the TrueNAS operating system. As I was reading the installation instructions I came across a section that said one of the 2 drives will have to contain the boot/UEFI partition, and can therefore be used for nothing else. Am I reading this correctly? I have 2 4TB HDDs that I plan on using in both bays and I'll have to use the entirety of one of those bays just to hold a small boot partition and nothing else? There are also 4 slots available for M.2 NVMe SSDs so I'm looking at using a small SSD for my boot partition there if this is true. My apologies if this is a dumb question as I'm kind of new to this stuff.

Questions about Jellyfin
I remember reading a post about someone setting up Jellyfin and some other software and essentially just waiting around a few days after shows come out and they end up being available in their media library. Like, some kind of pirating software that just grabs the right media. Is this a thing or am I misremembering?

Odroid just released the possibly best low power server on the market
After discontinuing the H2+ due to the parts shortage they now have the H3 and H3+ with an Intel N5105 / N6000 CPU. The box has 2.5 Gbit ethernet and can even be used with the NVMe to ethernet net card. This makes for a really awesome low power server and should even be a really capable OPNsense box with that net card. The case options also look amazing, small and simple yet flexible. Having only two SATA ports might be a bit limiting for data horders but then again it's easy to add more via USB anyway. I'm really liking what I see there. Especially with power prices surging all over the world, I think this might be a really great low power server recommendation?
