First experience with my new unlimited mobile phone contract while traveling: The phone hotspot works much better than the ICE (German high speed train) WiFi usually does. At most, there are small interruptions in tunnels, but otherwise surfing, writing e-mails, and listening to music work perfectly. Even remote programming works. It was worth it…

Today GoBlog got the option to configure your own map tile server. So not only standard OpenStreetMap is possible, but also Stamen Toner for example. Fits much better to my blog aesthetics, right? (See the map page.)

Bahn2GPX

Published on in ✍️ Posts

For me, the best option to travel long distances within Germany is to take the train. I don’t have a car since July, but I have a BahnCard 50 for years, with which I get up to 50% discount on (unfortunately very expensive!) train tickets.

Mark emails me all the time with bugs he found in GoBlog (some that I would never have found myself) and features he would like to see (e.g. better display of Brid.gy webmentions). I take it as motivation and try to improve GoBlog in a way that it is useful for others as well. And I think there is a good progress.

How to remove bloatware

Published on in 📱 appydroid

After I put my new SIM card in my phone today (yes, the one with the unlimited mobidata volume - thanks for all the replies to my recent post!), I noticed that there suddenly appeared a new app that wanted to offer me additional services via SMS, of course for a fee. An app with no benefit for me, even annoying me by the presence of the app icon in the app drawer and the missing possibility to deactivate the app!

A few days ago I changed my home network so that the FRITZ!Box now directly establishes a DSL connection and I can use IPv6 again. Too bad that I only now noticed that this has led to the fact that it used the DNSv6 server of the ISP. Now I adjusted everything so that AdGuard Home is also used for DNSv6. Less advertising and tracking again…

The Brave browser now reveals its true face and becomes a web3 browser with integrated crypto wallet. More bullshit is really not possible…

My neighbors always seem to be playing Forza Horizon 5 in the evenings the last few days, loud engine noises from the apartment below. 😂
