Another change in my infrastructure setup: I replaced rathole with Chisel. There wasn’t any particular reason, I use it in the same way: It’s making a few services and websites hosted on my home server available on my VPS to publish using Caddy and a static IP. Chisel is just a bit more simple to configure using command line flags. And it’s written in Go.

I already liked cherry blossoms 6 years ago. This photo is from 2016, taken with my Motorola Moto G 3rd Gen. That was my third of in total five smartphones.

Switching to Purelymail

After long consideration, I have now moved email for all but my main domain (but that’s coming too) to Purelymail. Email without bullshit. And with the “Advanced billing mode” they really only charge by usage or $10 per year with the “Simple billing”, but even with Advanced that shouldn’t be much more than $1 per month for me.

What I like most is that there is no unnecessary limit on the number of users, aliases or custom domains. 👍

And to keep my emails even if Purelymail suddenly disappears, I set up a cronjob (based on this Dockerfile) that backs up my IMAP mailbox once an hour.

Since recently I can publish posts with location. Now there is also a map with all posts on my English and German blog. 😉

I refactored GoBlog to avoid global variables wherever possible (with the goal to make it easier to create unit tests) and I hope I didn’t introduce any new bugs. 🤞

Blogging is sometimes like self-therapy. Sorting and sorting out thoughts in your head and finally you feel better.

@bekopharm Yeah, that shirt is really cool ☺️👍 But I wouldn’t wear it myself, I am already asked far too often things that you can easily find on Google DuckDuckGo. 😅

It was a nice evening yesterday with interesting discussions about different IndieWeb topics! I also used the writing hour to write some code for my custom CMS and it’s progressing well…

I have too many clothes that I don’t wear anymore and there’s too much stuff in my wardrobe. So I use my holidays to move into another room and get rid of the old stuff. That’s fun (not really…)! 😅
