This is the website and brain-dump for Charles Mauch. I keep content I want to preserve here. Stories, essays, Bike Touring adventures all get stuffed into the site here. I maintain a few other related sites too…
- mauch.Wiki is this site, a Wiki.js instance. I’m slowly filling it as I go through my old documents.
- mauch.Social is my microblog running Mastodon. I self host my social media and do not have a facebook or twitter account.
- mauch.Cloud is where I keep my files (for the most part). It’s running Nextcloud. This instance syncs my files, calendar, bookmarks, between my computers and mobile devices. Sort of a personal version of Apple’s icloud.
- mauch.Photos is where my Photo Gallery resides. It’s using Piwigo as a backend.
- mauch.Link is my archive site. I preserve interesting content I’ve found on the web there. Sort of a personal version of archive.org.
I run the following services on various machines or in docker containers in my home. They aren’t publicly accessible, but I highly reccomend each of these services.
- Password management is handled via bitwarden_rs, which is a free/open-source version of Bitwarden. I’ve used 1password and lastpass for years now. I like bitwarden because it’s self-hosted and runs equally well on MacOS and Linux.
- I also use Mayan EDMS Document Management System. I keep all of my paystubs, reciepts, bills, tax forms, financial documents and like in it.
- I verify my bitcoin transactions by running a bitcoin core node with a blockchain pruned down to about 75 Gigabytes. I run EPS along with it.
- Garmin Connect gets a log of all of my commutes and rides. It’s pretty boring actually. I commute on my bike every day so most of what you’ll see is a path across the Narrows Bridge twice a day.
- Ride with GPS is where my bike ride planning happens, along with some ride reports. A lot of commutes end up there too.
- Komoot is another bike tour planning site I use on occasion. It’s pretty empty at the moment.
- ListenBrainz is an archive of what I have and and currently listening to.
- Spotify is what I use for music these days.
- Email email@example.com is preferred as I can encrypt replies if I don’t know you, but I also check firstname.lastname@example.org. The gmail account is 15 years old now, and gets a TON of spam. Encrypt your emails to this address with Open PGP to bypass the spam filters.
- Telegram general texting and chat. I mostly use Telegram for remote notifications, so a text to me might get lost in the noise. Telegram by default is not encrypted. use Signal instead.
- Signal Secure (encrypted) texting, I can be reached via my phone number.
- Keyoxide uses Open PGP to provide proof of identity on various parts of the internet. It’s decentralized, which I like.

All of this is hosted on Linode, which is an awesome linux-based hosting service. And cheap.
