Web developer and Studio Lead at Deloitte Digital in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Pretty bad how an endless loop in Google Maps can cause Firefox on Fedora - running in a VM - to crash the OS completely. Not sure what is going on. Seems like the is an endless redirect between two domains fetched from maps.google.com.
Had an amazing dream where I met the indie creators of a video I absolutely loved as a kid at a conference for Indie game developers in a cool place in a cool city. The catch: I invented the whole thing; the game does not exist, neither did the developers or the location. If we let it, our brain is more powerful than anything .
Travelling almost six hours on the train this morning for a two-day meeting with our customer in München.
Wondering if the dry season in Western Europe has started.
A very intense lucid dream disclosed I feel some guilt leaving behind the small town community I moved away from 14 years ago.
The look of Windows 11 makes me think someone at Microsoft got nostalgic of Windows XP and convinced the Windows 10 people to mix it up with their theme.
Pure HTML page, without images, styling or animations or transitions are still web pages, bringing information across the Internet to anyone with a connection and a browser.
Linkedin really wants to get access to the contacts on your phone (amongst other private things accessible through permission flags). Looking at the ridiculous effort they put in introducing thirty or so banners and popups on their mobile site trying to convince the "experience is better on the mobile app", which is essentially breaking their own site.
Who do you trust more to manage your private mobile devices, to provide security and theft protection? A global well-known company offering services for free, but in return of access to your accounts, or a smaller, not so well known, privately held company which you pay a monthly fee for?
Anyone promoting cloud services like it's the best thing ever probably does not travel with the train very often...
Watching a live coding stream while on a high speed train with spotty network connection is not great. It is amazing it kinda works, for sure. But we're not in the always connected high speed internet future yet.
On my way to München on the ICE, I had a pretty decent chilly con carne, the fastest I ever had at about 280km/h.
Social Media posts should be more like open canvases, like Miro boards or OneNote pages, and less just text with an image, to really reflect what is on people's minds. It would make interacting digitally with each other more humane and creative.
Exhausting day. But we are getting better.
The backup file of our family Whatsapp group, including videos, is about 7GB large. Good thing we can still locally backup the files to other systems.
Wouldn't it be great if we had self tests for basically every illness? If we could do it for covid, should be not impossible to have more.
And we're almost all sick again in my family.
Seems like all I had to do to fix the IPFS extension locally was to set the port to 8081 instead of 8080. Ha. So there is hope.
So you need to be a little bit of a special person in order to have the patience and mental strength to install a Linux distribution these days. Other than Ubuntu, I could not get anything installed as a second OS because of "secure boot" and "UEFI boot loader" problems on my not so new PC.
@johanbove I'm lucky enough to never have needed to sign up nor visit that hell hole
