After I recently invested some money to upgrade my home office with a new keyboard and mouse, I have now made the next purchase. I replaced my 24-inch 1080p display with a 28-inch 4k IPS monitor. 4k is really sharp, no single pixel can be seen. And even with my Linux desktop computer 60 Hz refresh rate is possible. The Samsung UR55 seems to be quite good.

This week’s HWC was nice as always with interesting topics! Especially the topic about sustainable websites was interesting. My VPS provider uses renewable energy and I also try to make my site use as less resources as possible, by using no custom fonts and writing minimal CSS and HTML.

I watched “The Social Dilemma” on Netflix today. I like the movie! A good movie with a lot of things people from within my bubble probably already know. And a lot of reasons to stay away from (classic) social media.

I’m switching from Backblaze B2 to Scaleway’s Object Storage. I used to use B2 as a backup destination for my restic backups from various servers. The service is fine, but what drives me away is missing €-billing (and credit cards as the only payment method) and a somewhat slow performance (at least it feels like that). Scaleway asks for twice the price (0,01€ per GB per month) but the first 75GB are free.

I took inspiration from Ru and finally added a “favorite blogs” section to my blogroll. I also sorted the blogs into English and German, so that someone without knowledge of German can ignore the German blogs.
