I finally finished my script to generate a website from exported slides. Now i can start uploading annotated versions of my talks. Find my first talk over here:

Slides are in german but annotations are in english.

Topic is data protection.

I finished filing my taxes today. Business trips are a pain to render account.

In the next few days i will make some fundamental changes to my infrastructure. Expect some downtimes (mainly my website).

This toot is my condensed response to various $HYPETECH related Blogposts I have read in the past few days.

People who are telling you that you need $HYYPETECH in order to have a modern website are really annoying.

No, I do not need to rewrite my website as serverless JavaScript SPA.

No, I do not need to use $wellknowncdnthatcontrolstoomuchoftheinternet in order deliver my website better.

No, I do not need JavaScript on my website, everything is working fine.

Oh and I also do not need to setup my own kubernetes to host my measly blog.

Thanks for coming to my TED Talk.

My friends: Man, finding a name for our soon to be born child is really hard...

Me: I feel ya...

You may ask: What is the benefit of running a TURN server on port 443?

Well even if the firewall is blocking the standard ports for TURN you can bypass it by "abusing" the port for HTTPS.

Do not mind me, just sneakily running my turn server on port 443.

Mmh. I have to run my own TURN server in order to improve connection to some BigBlueButton instances i administrate. I hope that this will improve connecting through NAT.

Shoutouts to Bandcamp btw. They were the ones helping me setup big parts of my collection.

About a month ago I ditched Spotify in favor of my local music collection. I bought a lot of music over the years. Holy moly.

Whew, i really underestimated how long it takes ffmpeg to encode a video as AV1. I am currently encoding on my notebook with two running threads at 0.3 frames per second.

Friendly reminder: "X as a service" is just a misleading corporate euphemism for "pay forever for not owning it".

"Software as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning the software".

"Games as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning games".

"Infrastructure as a service" actually means "pay forever for not owning the hardware".

And so on.

There is no "cloud", it's just other people's computers

I can not live without Youtube. I admit it. So i want to ask: How is your Youtube workflow? On my smartphone and my tablet i am using NewPipe to follow my subscriptions. But is there something equal for linux? I found minitube but unfortunately it requires a Youtube API key.

I am going to write a seminar paper about activitypub. I am pretty excited. :)
