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. πŸ€“

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. πŸ˜…

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.

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.
