I slouch a lot, so my shoulders are a bit rounded at my neutral posture. I have tried to get into the habit of doing wall glides, stretching my chest, doing back exercises, and sitting properly. But after quite a few years of testing strategies, tools, and trying to build consistent habits, I usually manage to get two or three weeks of good progress but then fall back to the usual bad habits and my posture does not really improve.
Do any of you have any success stories about correcting your bad posture? I would like to learn from your success!
A user was created in my instance to spam phishing links to some google sites that look like bank login sites and crypto wallets. I banned the user and removed their content, but the links were also added to the description in their profile page, and they still live there. Is there a way to delete the description through the UI? The only way that I can think of how to do that is to manually remove the description in the postgresql database.
I have procrastinated configuring the e-mail server for my instance. I am looking into it and it is not entirely clear to me how I should go about it.
I see that some docker-compose files have the following block added:
But I don't understand whether this is supposed to work out-of-the box (which it did not for me when I tried), or if I need to set up the postfix server as one usually would and the postfix-relay somehow makes the connection between docker container and the already configured server. Is there a guide for complete beginners? I could not find one in the lemmy docs and I have never configured an e-mail server before. I am reading through the postfix documentation and already got some basics but there is a lot, and I am not sure that I am moving efficiently towards the end goal 😅

I am currently running my instance using a VMWare cloud server with the following specs: 1 GB RAM / 1 Core / 30 GB SSD / 10 Mbps
This costs 13.94 €/month.
Using the same provider (serverspace.io), I can rent a vStack cloud server with:
1 GB RAM / 1 Core / 30 GB SSD / 50 Mbps
For 4.55 €/month.
I am using the more expensive option because this is my first self-hosted project and I did not realize the cheaper option was available when I originally set up the server.
As I currently understand it, renting a VMWare is renting a physical machine, and renting a vStack is renting one of many virtual machines installed within a physical machine. Is this correct? And, are there any practical reasons not to "downgrade" to a vStack? When should someone choose a VMWare over a vStack?
I have been learning a lot thanks to Lemmy and the people behind it, so I wanted to contribute a bit back by making some easy-to-follow video tutorials.
I have also made the same video in Spanish: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h50M6jYZ8YU
As a beginner myself, I do have a level of concern that I might teach something incorrectly, or that I might expose others to security risks and liabilities. I hope that these concerns are not well-founded, but I am open to criticism!
