About this Server

This is a private personal cloud server consisting of Apps deployed as part of a self hosted communication suite for contact with and between Friends and Family, at home and abroad (away from relying on the usual commercially operated, centralized and proprietary services such as Facebook, Google, WhatsApp, WeChat)

"Mana" (in Polynesian, Melanesian, and Maori belief) is an impersonal supernatural power which can be transmitted or inherited. Mana is described as many things: As per the Māori Dictionary, "prestige, authority, control, power, influence, status, spiritual power, charisma - mana is a supernatural force in a person, place or object. Mana goes hand in hand with tapu, one affecting the other."
