Volume 3 of "Love, Death + robots" is amazing! Every single episode is out-of-this-world!

Predicting that alternative ways of generating electricity, for example by using a fixed exercise bike connected to a battery, will get more popular in Europe and Germany this winter.

You know what would be cool - if big tech brands would start adding solar panels to their product ranges. There is so much "crap" out there - I would easily put an "Siemens" or "LG" solar panel high on the list.

With these electricity prices - all web hosting will get more expensive. So seriously considering if all of this will then be still worth the trouble.

Johan Bové

Our electricity provider will pull up the price by 2.9 times ! This is nuts.

Is the fossil fuel industry trying to cash in big time before the end of the World-as-know-it so their shareholders can all go watch the rest of the World suffer from the safety of their yachts and villas?

Need more space on your Android phone? Use an SD card! At least, that's the promise, reality is that using an SD card as an expansion is still (after all these years) still a terrible process which is super unstable. Tried three times copying an app's storage to the "SD Card" on Android 11 and every time the phone ends up crashing.

We're back at work! Had a really good time enjoying an actual vacation at Cavallino Tre Porte in Italy. Our family beach holiday in a fantastic camp site was the best time of this year for now! Hoping everyone else gets a change to enjoy this too somehow where ever they might be.

Johan Bové

Enjoying some time off. See you later.

I really like the ALT-F2 command on Linux

Three week vacation is coming up. Thinking of going offline for that long and reading books for a change. Got a whole stack "to read".

So not to have this previous post as my last post: I am happy to have made a nice Python "picture uploader" app for our family pictures. Thanks to Flask it was only a matter of finding some good tutorials and articles and the thing actually works.

Oh, the irony - the English Wikipedia article on "Link_rot" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Link_rot), has some External Links; the link to Jakob Nielsen, "Fighting Linkrot", Jakob Nielsen's Alertbox, June 14, 1998 (http://www.useit.com/alertbox/980614.html). is returning ... "HTTP Status: 404 (not found)" .

Saved our cat after she got her back left leg stuck in a folder chair and she "thanked" me by biting me. Got 5 nice teeth marks on my hand. Luckily no stitches necessary and she is doing good again too.

Working with Onedrive on Linux is like mixing milk with fruit tea, it just doesn't blend well.

Let's just say I would have not wanted to be around when the microwave was accidentally invented.

What keeps you motivated?

Seeing "suggested replies" in chat tools is freaking me out. I don't need an algorithm to analyze my communication for me. What's the next step? Turn it in "auto-suggested replies" and not have to deal with talking to people at all anymore? Wondering also: who exactly is requesting this feature except for it being a "business" case to be able to say your app is using "AI" as a hype-lingo-bingo check mark?

Johan Bové

Be kind.
