Guess who installed Windows 11 and can now easily run Linux GUI apps without having to jump through all the hoops that were once necessary? Quite impressive… And my laptop (supposedly built in 2013) is not even officially supported for Windows 11, but still runs great!

Nice, Firefox 93 got released. The big news is support for the AVIF image format, but Firefox finally has a datetime-local input implementation now!

Miniflux 2.0.33

Published on in 💬 Micro

Miniflux 2.0.33 got released. An exciting release because it features Telegram integration (new articles can be sent via Telegram) on the one hand, and on the other hand it includes my contributed changes to also hide individual feeds on the unread list and not just whole categories.

Tailscale excites me again and again! Now it is also possible to get TLS certificates for nodes. I immediately got to work and integrated this into GoBlog, so that the browsers no longer complain when I log into my diary – a http:// page, which is already encrypted through Tailscale…

Yesterday and this morning I worked from the office rather than from home due to planned power interruptions. Impressions: My monitor at home is better, my chair is more comfortable and at home it is quieter (there is construction work in the office right now). Only the Internet is much faster in the office.

Ad-less YouTube on my Chromecast

Someone gave me the tip (thank you!) to use VLC to play YouTube videos with my Chromecast. Although it is possible to stream YouTube videos directly in the VLC Android app itself, it somehow doesn’t work in combination with the output to the Chromecast. An alternative is of course to first use NewPipe to download a video and then play it on the Chromecast using VLC.

I regularly watch videos on YouTube via my Chromecast with Google TV. But I feel like I’m seeing more and more commercials. It’s almost like private television, where every video is interrupted every few minutes with advertising. And most of the time it’s two commercials in a row that can’t be skipped. I think I have to think about an alternative solution for YouTube…
