Seems like is not dealing with given "category" tags properly as passed from "indiepub" POST requests and this is messing up the tags of the content on the site. Going to have to do some tricky fixing in the MySQL or create a "fix the tags in the items" admin page.

We had a great time at my son’s first big birthday party today! He turned two and we decided to host a party for him together with our friends at the excellent and fun Zwergenstübe in Düsseldorf. Lots of room to play and have fun. We also had an amazingly great two-tier cake from The Baker’s Wife. Since we were happy with all of this I wanted to mention and thank these two young businesses here.

The Conrad store in is closing on February 15th. Another victim of how unfair competition from web shops and rental cost pressure is destroying physical stores. I’m not sure how many people lose their jobs; For me a joy disappears as I loved going through the store looking for cool new things.

The latest Bullet Journal IOS companion app (version 2.0) improvements are impressive.

It now offers a great way of digitally backing up your paper notebooks.
Totally worth the $4.99 bucks! (I'm not getting anything out of this, I'm just a fan)

A new colleague started this week and got the new MacBook 16 inch and everyone is jealous about how much better the keyboard of this new Mac is compared to the 2016 models. It even comes with a dedicated escape key!

Redid the layout of our little family site using CSS Grid and I'm like - why didn't I do this two years ago already?

Can't believe I hadn't switched to "CSS Grid" yet, even-though it's been well supported for a while now. Still learning the intrinsic details of the spec, but I'm happy getting the basics right is not a huge deal. Planning to implement CSS Grid on my personal sites.
