I finished tidying up my passwort manager today. I recently migrated from bitwarden to (go)pass and used that opportunity to close a bunch of old accounts and also to check my passwords for duplications. I also changed some older, less secure passwords to newer, stronger ones. I am weirdly proud of myself.

It took me around 30 minutes today to do something as trivial as deleting my namecheap account. Since they did not offer an account department in their ticket selection i was forced to talk to a support employee in order to close my account. -.-

The first day of the University:Future Festival begins. A completely online conference about future, tech and higher education.

You know that Apple has succeeded with marketing when people actually thinks that Apple cares about the user and their privacy.

As mentioned before i am currently evaluating my current vps/hosting/emal setup. As part of that process i downsized my server
and asked myself what to do with my blog. Don't get me wrong, i like my current setup, but since i am planning several series of articles it becomes more clear that the current, limited setup will not cut it. And i also kinda like the idea to edit/add articles from my mobile devices. So i might give wordpress another try. Do you guys have any tips for me about using wp?

Looking into packaging a php app into a container. A task I am not looking forward to.
