Damn, i really miss my second monitor. :( Sometimes it is really hard to work with just one.

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

@tychi writefreely might be an alternative. I haven't looked into hosting it though.

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?

Mainly the problem that the web app itself is configured by using a visual wizard in your browser. So no chance to make the build reproducible. So I have to build and configure the app first, then find out how it is configured, write a script to load the values from the environment and then repackage the app.

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


Kommentar zu rechtsextremen Polizisten: Es reicht!

29 Polizisten aus NRW sollen übelste neonazistische und rassistische Nachrichten ausgetauscht haben, teils über Jahre. NRW hat einen veritablen Polizeiskandal. Ein Kommentar.


The "I exist without my consent" meme but without irony

Feeling really disassociated from my body today. It is really weird.

Replaced my nextcloud sync setup with a local syncthing one, because syncthing is faster and I really do not need all my stuff online.

These are configuration rules for a Webserver. He is checking if the Visitor is using an iPhone or an iPad and instead of showing them the website he is redirecting them to the Website of Richard Stallmans article about the dangers of Apple for your personal digital and technical freedom.

Containers should only be used if their benefits outweighs their disadvantages.

Protip: It is often not the case.

Thank you for coming to my TED talk.

Thank you for your suggestion. The problem was that another application was overwriting the symlinks which point at the certificate with some self signed shit. So in the end nginx wasn't even the culprit.

Today on random sysadmin bullshitery: Why is nginx refusing to use our perfectly fine and correctly created ssl certificates?

@hund After some searching i found a theme that is very minimalistic and also js free. So now i have to twak it to my liking. :D

Since my technological landscape will change a bit (Self hosting on on Raspi, decommissioning a few servers) I might switch to a static site generator again. I am surprised how difficult it is to find a template which has not been inflated with javascript. 🙈

Yeah I might do the thing where I parse the articles on the fly everytime the rss feed is consumed. Even though it means I have to write xml. 😃
