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.

My blog has the function to open a random article (just go to jlelse.blog/random). But I also like to use it myself and it always amazes me what I find there. For example, what I thought and wrote four or five years ago. That was a time of many changes in my life, which probably shaped me a lot. I was searching a bit for meaning in life and my role in the world. Some things I see differently today, but some things I still see that way.

One of the tech news sites I read has switched from Disqus to native WordPress comments. Where uBlock Origin used to block more than 15 items (unfortunately I don’t remember the exact number), now only 2 items are blocked. 👍 (also for not switching to “Comment on Twitter” instead)

Unpopular opinion: SQL is awesome and I really like writing performant SELECT statements.

Now that I have the option to publish posts without them showing up in the feed for everyone, I can finally use my blog to comment on other IndieWeb sites and send webmentions without annoying my followers. Now my blog is really a complete Twitter replacement for me.

When it comes to updates, I’ve always thought that it would be handy to be able to update all the software installed on the computer at once with a single command, so that I’m always up to date. But doing updates manually only once in a while for the programs I use also has something decelerating about it. 🤔 Am I getting old?

On the one hand, it feels pretty good to have worked quite focused all the time from seven in the morning until half past six in the evening and also to have accomplished a lot. On the other hand, it’s also pretty exhausting and I’m glad I only have to work 40 hours a week, so I don’t have to work that long every day. But still, I’m glad to have a job that I enjoy and am good at, that pays well and is not physically demanding. 👨‍💻

Since recently I can publish posts with location. Now there is also a map with all posts on my English and German blog. 😉
