This will be my accommodation for the next 15 hours. Tomorrow morning I’ll be back in Budapest (from Bucharest) and hopefully catch a train that will take me back home by tomorrow evening.

Let’s see if the air conditioning is still made to work at some point and if I have to share this compartment with someone or if I have it all to myself.

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.

At work, we call such terminals “black holes”. And mainframe is certainly even more widespread than many believe. Not everything runs in fancy Kubernetes clusters developed in Go, NodeJS or Rust.

I just watched “Don’t Look Up” and somehow I think it’s not unlikely that the earth will really end up like in the movie… Not by a comet, but, well, by the climate crisis. Look up!

I really look forward to the final release of Gitea 1.15.0, which includes this pull-request. It adds the option to mirror to remote repositories, without the need to manually setup Git hooks, like I’ve done before.

I have now completely disabled logging on my sites. Why? Because I don’t need the logs. Sometimes I used GoAccess to analyze the 30 days of logs, but I did that less and less and it doesn’t bring me any benefit. If any page is broken, I hope someone will send me a message.

Really nice weather today, you don’t even need to wear a jacket. 🌞 In less than 24 hours, I will probably already have my bachelor’s degree. 😱

Today I will participate again at the HWC Europe/London (remotely, but this time with a webcam). I am looking forward to some nice discussions. Until then I’m going to program a little bit on my own CMS.

I probably shouldn’t be posting articles at 11:30 at night. Somehow it happens to me too often that I make a mistake while publishing, like missing the title, posting in the wrong category on my blog or something similar. Go to sleep and don’t blog so late, Jan-Lukas!

What I like about Go: It’s quick and easy to create small programs, including support for Docker and everything. For example, today I developed a minimal URL shortener that stores the entries in a SQLite database: https://jlel.se/goshort

Now I have finally found a good use for the domain I recently registered. 😄
