# On gopher self-sufficiency and RFCs
tomasino writes of being fed up with outages and changes without communication from SDF. I concur. He moved his phlog. IDK, man
. I bilocate my phlog. The reason is that sdf offers a large pull. So all phlog entries live both there and my own server. Mayb
e I am just chickenshit... I read plenty of nonSDf phlogs daily. So my fear of being unread is likely baseless.
Maybe the biggest reason is that I reinstated my SDf membership after twenty years. I want to keep that account active. Unlike
tomasino, I really only actively use gopher and mastodon on SDf. I will likely check into the other offerings, I just have not
as of yet. So, I shall keep going with my paradigm. I would like to say, that I am stoked that you went the self hosting way, e
specially with an RPi. On the DNS front: doesn't SDF have a dns service? The registrar doesn't have a dns server api? I will ad
mit ignorance on this. I have used godaddy to buy domains since the 90s. Sure, there are better options, but a plus is the DNS
server api. I have a cron script to directly touch my DNS. I use the same thing on my VPS with 14 domains and subdomains.
On another topic, I have added a searchable RFC listing to RPoD. It is in the LOCAL CONTENT section. You can scroll through
the entire list, enter a number to filter the list, or grep by keyword or phrase. I hope that people find this useful. In the e
nd, I did it to scratch an itch.
