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.

I quickly played with OpenAI’s new Text-To-Speech model to check if it’s an alternative to Google’s API. And wow! English is fantastic and even German is not bad. Just some syllables in German have a weird English accent. But even then, it’s still good. But sadly, it’s also a bit costly. Let’s wait a few months until it gets cheaper and better, and you can enjoy my blog’s “Read aloud” feature even more. 😉
