A bit tired of Youtube's double-ads-which-cannot-be-skipped attitude - time for alternatives!
Anyone else also use a simple shell command to effortlessly add to-dos to a todo.txt file in their home folder? I love how this works from any open terminal window. Doing the same for quick notes as well.
During our game of My First Monopoly (level 1), I tried selling my 4yo a plot he wanted which I had landed on before him for double the price at 2M, and he politely refused and said he'd prefer to wait and try his luck. #soproud
Tired: getting "unspecified unknown errors" when using online booking tools; Looking at you Toyota.de. Perhaps you also don't really need all those tracking services and really complex forms. All I want to do is book a service appointment. Not launch a rocket to the moon.
Prepairing another meal for 16 people for the Ronald McDonald house in Cologne
So it happened - the twtxt.xyz domain finally expired
The crypto headlines this week on Web3IsGoingGreat are again really something ... 👍 https://
First week without Twitter went well - getting by just fine keeping up-to-date on the topics I am most interested in by means of IRC, RSS, ActivityPub, Webmentions, the Fediverse and the Indieweb.
Just a reminder that all of the #indieweb tools are made by enthusiasts in their spare time and are open source, so if you see something off, then please report. Helps a million.
Wondering how much CO2 is used by running a personal file share server on NextCloud on a Raspberry Pi 3, with a backup to a local Qnap NAS system, which keeps an offsite backup on B2? My home uses renewable energy... Going to have fun figuring that out.
I really need to start creating instead of consuming and collecting
The NextCloud web interface has a neat editor for working with markdown files. And the integration with having README.md files within folders to display descriptions of those folders is awesome.
Pretty neat how installing Linux on a recent, common PC can go entirely smoothly and without messing about with drivers. I remember the days where it took hours just to get the sound-card to make a bleep.
Is there an IRC client that shows chat logs in reverse chronological order?
Web apps should not try to re-invent the HTML "date-picker" element for the sake of "branding consistency" in every single app, especially not if there is no specific feature that the default browser date-picker lacks in functionality.
Install of Ubuntu Budgie complete - now setting up everything. Already found my first issue with VScode. The window overlaps all other windows all the time and I cannot seem to find a setting to make it act normally. No biggy for now.
First step of installing Linux next to a Windows instance: decrypt Bitlocker ...
Why is versioning an API endpoint such a hard software infrastructure design challenge?
Considering switching to a Linux distro again after some trouble with getting something cool to work on the Windows 10 command line. It also seems that Micro$$s seems to be going all in on Windows 11, which is not going to be supported on this machine. So I'll be trying out some distros in the following weeks.
