I’m a bit skeptical about GitHub Copilot, but now that I’ve really tried it out for the first time, I’m amazed by its capabilities. Copilot doesn’t replace programming, but it does take a lot of the work out of it. What works well, for example, is the completion of comments in the code.

And another year… Time passes quickly, but still there are some issues that need to be sorted out, because all this was not foreseeable. But that’s life, rarely predictable and some meet fate unplanned.

So cool, I have a live preview in the GoBlog editor now! 🤓

I am using Nitter, an alternative interface for Twitter, just in case I want to read a thread on Twitter. Previously I hosted the instance directly on my VPS. Now, however, I host the Nitter instance at home, but make it available on the Internet through Tailscale, a little program I wrote called “ProxyExposer”, and Caddy. 🤓 I also briefly tried publishing a WordPress instance from home to the web this way. But I don’t have a use case for WordPress at the moment.

Previously, to work on my code server, I always installed Visual Studio Code locally and then accessed the server using the Remote SSH extension. But that no longer seems necessary now that I have code-server installed. Using code-server, Visual Studio Code can be easily used in the browser. Cool project!

Running my Drone CI runner at home has some disadvantages though. The network speed in a data center is much faster than my 100/40 mbps connection at home. But I will (hopefully) have a new provider soon with gigabit download (and a bit faster - 50 mbps - upload)…

Today I was out in the forest, in nature. To breathe fresh air, move, relax. The inspiration and thoughts you get there!

I have no idea how many people read my posts or what posts they read. But it’s great to have a reading community that likes to comment on the questions I include in my posts, help me out or give me inspiration. Thank you!

My home and code server now has 2 TB of SSD storage and 16 GB of RAM. While I’ll be using the storage for backups, etc., I’m not quite sure what I can use the 16 GB of RAM for yet. What else can I run besides Home Assistant, AdGuard Home, Drone and Tailscale? I still have my VPS running my websites, Miniflux, Bitwarden, Firefox Sync Server, RSS-Bridge, Firefly III, Nitter and Gitea. 🤔

Sometimes I am a perfectionist. Having previously made my private diary blog available via a Tailscale sidecar container in my Tailnet, I have now integrated Tailscale directly into GoBlog. Both Tailscale and Tailscale’s Let’s Encrypt certificates can be configured directly in GoBlog. No sidecar container is needed anymore. A much simpler solution! (And Tailscale rocks!)
