Last night, I setup a Linode server to try out Forgejo. The setup went smoothly, and I managed to get Forgejo up and running, but the setup is a little expensive: around ~$18.00 AUD for a 2 GB server with 50 GB storage. So I’m going to try out Hetzner. I should, in theory, be able to get two servers — one for the frontend, and one as a CI/CD worker — both with twice as much RAM, plus a 50 GB volume for around ~$17.00 AUD.

The only downside is that the servers are further away: Falkenstein, Germany; rather than Sydney (I can’t be the only one that wishes the speed of light was faster). We’ll see how much the latency’s going to annoy me.
