Every so often I want to take some notes, and make them public. Not blog posts, but technical notes. Not private things, but something others might find handy. Almost like a personal single-user wiki. Anyone done this? Something simple, secure and self hosted, so not github gists

What is the number one thing 🥇 you'd change to improve Ubuntu MATE?

Any response featuring the words "green" or "theme" will be sent to /dev/null 😉
