Reconstruction of the Beirut Port Explosion

Published on in 🔗 Links

In August there was a big explosion in the port of Beirut, which caused a lot of damage, unfortunately many people died. Forensic Architecture, a research group from London, has now reconstructed the course of events using publicly available information such as videos and photos. Especially the video on the website about the reconstruction is very interesting.

I have this one Swedish domain that I use for my link shortener and my Gitea instance. Since I have set up catch-all email aliases for all my domains, I also get all mails sent to these domains. But only with the Swedish domain it happens to me that I regularly receive business emails or Microsoft Teams invitations, which obviously are not addressed to me, but only end up in my inbox because someone seems to have made a typo.

Reply to: "Dear Yahoo" by Evgeny Kuznetsov

It would be a good thing of more services delete old unused accounts automatically, like Yahoo Mail does. I often come across accounts that I created years ago but haven’t touched for almost the same time. I am only reminded of them when these services change their TOS or privacy policies. Then I go and try to delete these accounts, sometimes without success, because it is impossible to delete the accounts themselves. Then I have to write a support request or send a mail to a contact address, which is not always successful as well.

Yesterday, I watched this interview from Federico Razzoli with the creator of SQLite Richard Hipp. I learned some more background facts about SQLite or understood things I wasn’t so sure about before.

I’m buying used things whenever possible as well, for example I bought a used bed and one of the keyboard / mouse pairs was also a used one. And my phone is a Samsung Galaxy S10 Lite, so also more on the budget side, but not that budget that I have to replace it next year. I try to buy cheap, but not too cheap that it’s just trash.

I think I am a minimalist

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

I just watched a video by Matt D’Avella. His channel is not new to me, some time ago I already dealt with the topic of minimalism more deeply. But the video made me think about it again.

Productive Sunday morning: I just integrated a full-text search into GoBlog. It’s using the SQLite FTS5 extension. I always find it impressive how many features SQLite has and what is possible with it!

I will participate at least partially in the IndieWebCamp East. Probably only “in the forenoon”, because I am 6 hours ahead. It is my first IndieWebCamp, I am very excited!
