After the repair, I am really excited about my pedelec. The battery significantly increases the range of a “small” bike ride and allows me to visit many beautiful places in the vicinity of my hometown Braunschweig and enjoy the nature.

To kick off my few days of Easter vacation, I took my freshly inspected and repaired pedelec (e-bike) with beautiful weather (20 degrees and sun) and drove a round on the “Ringgleis”, a bike path around my city. The total mileage has now also finally reached the 3000 km. That’s still not much over several years, but I still have my second, non-electric bike, with which I probably ride a lot more.

Why blog at all? (and indieblog.page)

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

What a coincidence: I was just thinking about why I blog at all, when I saw a post from Andreas Gohr in my feed reader with the announcement of indieblog.page. Cool site to discover blogs!

The first two nights with my new weighted blanket were good! The blanket is very cozy but not sweaty. The weight is not oppressive, but just right, and also makes me feel somehow more tired than usual before I sleep, and then let me fall asleep almost immediately, as if flipping a switch. And somehow I seem to dream much less, which can be a positive sign for more deep sleep.

rathole – ngrok alternative

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

Some time ago I tried to make my Nitter instance available on the Internet from home via Tailscale, Caddy and an own building block in between, but stopped it again a short time later because it didn’t work that well somehow. Today I found out about rathole, and what can I say? It works great and seems to be much faster than my previous solution!
