After the repair, I am really excited about my pedelec. The battery significantly increases the range of a “small” bike ride and allows me to visit many beautiful places in the vicinity of my hometown Braunschweig and enjoy the nature.

To kick off my few days of Easter vacation, I took my freshly inspected and repaired pedelec (e-bike) with beautiful weather (20 degrees and sun) and drove a round on the “Ringgleis”, a bike path around my city. The total mileage has now also finally reached the 3000 km. That’s still not much over several years, but I still have my second, non-electric bike, with which I probably ride a lot more.

The first two nights with my new weighted blanket were good! The blanket is very cozy but not sweaty. The weight is not oppressive, but just right, and also makes me feel somehow more tired than usual before I sleep, and then let me fall asleep almost immediately, as if flipping a switch. And somehow I seem to dream much less, which can be a positive sign for more deep sleep.

Mastodon 3.5 finally supports the Update ActivityPub activity. GoBlog supports sending updates for quite a while already, but only Pleroma showed the updated posts and not Mastodon. That would have been useful recently, when I posted “Spaces!” but wanted to post “Tabs!” and updated my post. 😅

When you submit a GDPR request to American Express (Germany), you get an “Encrypted Mail” (for which you have to log in again somewhere and set a password), which then contains two PDFs, one of which is full of screenshots of mainframe terminals.

Yesterday I ordered a blanket for an incredible amount of money, more precisely a weighted blanket. Now I hope that it will be delivered quickly and that it really has the positive effects that are being advertised. Although I can usually fall asleep quickly in the evening with a sleeping mask and earplugs, I never manage to sleep through the night, I am never woken up by the alarm clock because I wake up earlier. In the morning I feel tired almost every day, sometimes even the whole day, which then also limits my concentration and mental fitness. So I hope this magic blanket helps and is worth the money. 🙏

Six years ago, I was with my family on a cruise on the North Sea. During this trip we also visited Amsterdam. Today, however, I would no longer go on cruises because of the enormous environmental impact.

At work I may soon be able to program in Java 17 instead of Java 8. But still with Eclipse. 😅
