Thoughts of an IT expert

Published on in 💬 Micro

My apartment is a really good starting point for a small evening ride with my pedelec on the bike path, which was originally once a railroad line. In the evening, very few people are on the way, so it’s a free ride. The 45 nm strong rear-wheel motor helps me to drive without effort on average about 25 km/h and also to overcome slopes easily. Even light drizzle has not bothered me today. 🚴‍♂️

“Friendlier SQL with DuckDB”

Published on in 🔗 Links

I come into contact with SQL almost every day, be it at work (Oracle Database) or while developing my blog software (SQLite). I don’t find SQL as bad as some others might, but sometimes SQL could be better.

23 doesn’t feel all that different from 22. 🤔😊

I already liked cherry blossoms 6 years ago. This photo is from 2016, taken with my Motorola Moto G 3rd Gen. That was my third of in total five smartphones.

I’ve found a nice place near my apartment, where I can sit down after a long day of work and can finally work through a few articles from my reading list. It is an old cemetery, which was redesigned as a park. There’s a school next to it, so it’s not that quite, but that’s ok.

No standstill?

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

When I reflect on myself like this, I have long had the impression that I am a person who cannot live at a standstill. I always need a topic that keeps me busy, a thing in my life that I can optimize or at least a frequently changing topic that I can dive into.

Another reason to like spring: cherry blossoms.

Why I now mute my watch

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

I am a user of a smartwatch. It is already the third smartwatch in my life (first the Sony SmartWatch 3, then the Samsung Galaxy Watch and now the Galaxy Watch 4) and I am actually quite satisfied with it. I always need an easy way to see the time, even when I’m riding my bike and can’t look at my smartphone (being on time is important to me!), plus it counts my steps and gives me the ability to view notifications right on my wrist so I don’t always have to get my smartphone out of my pocket first.
