Hello, I'm Maksim and yeah this is yet another self-introduction thread.
I was searching for something about Intel ME and found Venam's Blog, decided to check the base domain and then realized it's a forum. I browsed it for a bit and really liked all the nice threads that are there. Later, when I finally got my hands on self-hosting an email server, I decided to join the forum. Venam assisted me in making an account without using ReCAPTCHA, and I finally became a member of Nixers.
I mainly self-host things on old laptops running Proxmox. My website is not yet finished, but if you wish, you can visit it by going to https://wherelinux.xyz.

Welcome, and thanks for keeping those old laptops out of the landfill! I only use old machines myself -- some would say they're obsolete, but Linux or one of the BSDs gives them a new life. Kinda like giving an old, unwanted dog a new "forever home".

If I remember there was a thread about the oldest hardware we own.

I still think my laptop is new and it's from 2012, meanwhile lots of people think laptops older than 3 years are meant for scrapyard.

All and all, welcome maksim!

The oldest laptop that I think is still viable is a Thinkpad T60. It's a bit older than Core 2 Duo era. The laptops running Proxmox are actually somewhat new, it's just that they are no longer used for daily driving :)
I actually would've happily used some old machine like an old Thinkpad with Libreboot if I had one.
