      Need to run from a home location, please confirm

      Would prefer you run from home and not move to a data center.

      I think a datacenter is a bad choice. You should run the node at home

      Looks good, but yes, running the node from home would be much preferred.

      Has my support.

      Great application. Looks good as long as node is at home :+1::+1::+1:

      Gatways can run on datacenters of course. Well done.
