On the Interrail trip in 2015, we got a city tour in Rome from someone I knew through Google+. Google+ was definitely my favorite of the social networks. And it was so hot in Rome, almost 40°C and we had to wear long pants because we also wanted to visit the Vatican.

This problem is finally solved. The solution: Make the webmention endpoint URL in the HTML head absolute. Now I will finally get mentions from micro.blog again!

Always when I see news about writing tools like the iOS app Ulysses (which apparently just released an update), I ask myself if people really need apps like this to develop a writing habit?

OneDrive has an ‘On this day’ feature, showing photos from the same day in previous years. 6 years ago, I was on an Interrail trip and we were in Venice. Two years later, I was on Interrail again, this time in Lyon. Happy memories!

GitHub still doesn't support IPv6

I really look forward to the final release of Gitea 1.15.0, which includes this pull-request. It adds the option to mirror to remote repositories, without the need to manually setup Git hooks, like I’ve done before.

I wrote about Barinsta (formerly InstaGrabber) before. The creator has now received a cease and desist letter from Facebook. That’s probably the death for this project. Too bad, because maybe a few people were quite happy to use Instagram semi-privately through it. But the letter is just another hint to avoid Facebook services altogether.
