I have no idea how many people read my posts or what posts they read. But it’s great to have a reading community that likes to comment on the questions I include in my posts, help me out or give me inspiration. Thank you!

My home and code server now has 2 TB of SSD storage and 16 GB of RAM. While I’ll be using the storage for backups, etc., I’m not quite sure what I can use the 16 GB of RAM for yet. What else can I run besides Home Assistant, AdGuard Home, Drone and Tailscale? I still have my VPS running my websites, Miniflux, Bitwarden, Firefox Sync Server, RSS-Bridge, Firefly III, Nitter and Gitea. 🤔

Sometimes I am a perfectionist. Having previously made my private diary blog available via a Tailscale sidecar container in my Tailnet, I have now integrated Tailscale directly into GoBlog. Both Tailscale and Tailscale’s Let’s Encrypt certificates can be configured directly in GoBlog. No sidecar container is needed anymore. A much simpler solution! (And Tailscale rocks!)

Guess who installed Windows 11 and can now easily run Linux GUI apps without having to jump through all the hoops that were once necessary? Quite impressive… And my laptop (supposedly built in 2013) is not even officially supported for Windows 11, but still runs great!

Nice, Firefox 93 got released. The big news is support for the AVIF image format, but Firefox finally has a datetime-local input implementation now!

Miniflux 2.0.33

Published on in 💬 Micro

Miniflux 2.0.33 got released. An exciting release because it features Telegram integration (new articles can be sent via Telegram) on the one hand, and on the other hand it includes my contributed changes to also hide individual feeds on the unread list and not just whole categories.

Tailscale excites me again and again! Now it is also possible to get TLS certificates for nodes. I immediately got to work and integrated this into GoBlog, so that the browsers no longer complain when I log into my diary – a http:// page, which is already encrypted through Tailscale…

Yesterday and this morning I worked from the office rather than from home due to planned power interruptions. Impressions: My monitor at home is better, my chair is more comfortable and at home it is quieter (there is construction work in the office right now). Only the Internet is much faster in the office.

Ad-less YouTube on my Chromecast

Someone gave me the tip (thank you!) to use VLC to play YouTube videos with my Chromecast. Although it is possible to stream YouTube videos directly in the VLC Android app itself, it somehow doesn’t work in combination with the output to the Chromecast. An alternative is of course to first use NewPipe to download a video and then play it on the Chromecast using VLC.
