    Anything that the family uses. Because when I cease to exist, my wife isn’t gonna take over self-hosting! So e-mail, chat, documents etc.

      I told my wife when I die, she’s just going to have to throw it all away and start over.

      We have separate email accounts and she knows how to get into my Keepass, so she should be able to get into whatever she needs to. I now have a daughter who is becoming interested in how these things work, so I’m hoping to slowly start training/handing off to her.

        I gave my wife a laminated card with explicit instructions on how to access my keepass DB and encrypted backups. The rest can die when I do.

        I have a router, switch and older access point preconfigured and ready to just plug in.

        I have some basic documentation and a short list of folks to call, along with admin creds should anything need untangling.

        But mostly it’s a rip and replace network. Ditch plex and get cable.

        Google workspace is basically just gmail. You can pay someone to migrate it or abandon.

        I hadn’t either until a few years ago. It’s something worth considering.

          Dealing with the digital afterlife of a hacker - The Daily Dot

          The main challenge was Michael’s tech footprint: His Gmail, Twitter, personal domains, rented servers, hosting business, home servers, and a huge collection of Apple tech.

          “It was tough for Beth because she got home and she had a brand new phone and couldn’t even get on the Wi-Fi,” Kalat said. “Michael had done everything. Beth is very smart—she’s a scientist—but Michael had handled everything. A friend had to come over to reset the Wi-Fi password.”

            Bitwarden has an option called emergency contact.

            The emergency contact can request access to see all the saved passwords. If I don’t deny the request then the request is automatically approved after X days.

            I feel like this would cover most of the issues in the article.
