Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, or just a great day! 🎄🎅

I appreciate living in a city with a university and multiple libraries nearby. Whenever there is too much noise from construction works at home, I can simply go to the library and enjoy a quiet place. 😌 A 5G cell tower is also within reach, enabling fast internet access without the necessity of logging into the eduroam Wi-Fi network. 🤓

Today, I finally finished the reworked MicroPub endpoint in GoBlog using the indielib library by Henrique. It killed about 400 lines of my spaghetti code. 😅

And I also improved the system prompt of the AI summary plugin a bit. First, I tried to write the system prompt myself, but GPT-3.5-Turbo just didn’t want to do what I tasked it to do. So I asked Bing Chat (GPT-4) to help me with the task of writing a good system prompt. In my tests it looked more promising then. Let’s hope for better AI summaries on my blog posts in the future. 😄

Now that I have vacation, it seems like my motivation to work on GoBlog (and blog) is back a bit…

Today, while remotely accessing my home server, I noticed that the network was a bit slower than usual. It turns out, there’s no 5G connection and only an LTE connection with another cell tower more far away. I checked the service provider’s website and there’s actually a problem with a base station nearby.

But this also shows, that, maybe, a cellular connection might improve the uptime given that there’s the fallback to other cell towers. The VDSL connection has no such fallback. But, of course, a cellular connection is more vulnerable due to weather conditions etc.

Yesterday, I used a rental car to avoid problems with Deutsche Bahn. Today, trying to do another trip with DB, the train is 50 minutes delayed. Karma? 🙃 Or it’s the weather again, DB’s infrastructure isn’t working well at temperatures below 0 °C. 🤷‍♂️

Or above 30 degrees, or when it’s raining too much, or too windy, there’s always a reason. You have to be a train enthusiast like me to not get crazy. 😅

Today, while being in the second home over the weekend, I finally installed the 5G router setup (ZTE MC801A + GL.iNet Beryl AX). Now my home server (staying in this flat because it has a good place here) is behind a cellular 5G connection. There’s running nothing important on it, but let’s see how reliable this new setup will work over a longer period. Today so far all works fine. And if there will be problems, I still have a few months time to find solutions.

Colin just reminded me, that it’s the third GoBlog birthday of this blog! I am still genuinely content with it, despite the apparent loss of my blogging momentum since then.
