Because I used Prometheus and Grafana at work, I also tried them at home and I must say, monitoring isn’t as boring as I always thought. Next up Kubernetes? 😅

Disable RAM Plus on OneUI 4.1

Published on in 📱 appydroid

When Samsung released the Android 12 update for my phone a few months ago, I noticed a new RAM Plus setting, which uses the storage to expand the memory. Pretty useless on my phone, as it has already 8 GB of RAM.

Maybe it wasn’t the best decision to name my blog software “GoBlog”, because it has a negative meaning in Indonesian. But whatever, I won’t rename it now… I even bought a domain with the name.

After all, debugging is still fun!

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

One reason I use an Android smartphone is that there are apps like Indigenous (a MicroPub-compatible app for posting from your phone to a MicroPub-compatible blog). And even if the app ever disappears from the store, there’s still the option to manually install the app. And if you need to, you can also develop your own apps without having to invest nearly $100 a year.

Some IndieWeb protocols are complicated and there are sometimes no programming libraries to simplify the use of them, but ActivityPub is another beast. Although the standard is documented, the way the specific implementations (Mastodon etc.) work often isn’t and it’s hard to debug. So huge respect for the big rework. 👍
