Experiences

Bring your own WiFi

I’m currently with my family on vacations and we have rented a holiday flat. The description of the flat includes “Free WiFi”, so I would assume there is a functioning WiFi. It may not be fast, but it should be working. But my experience with WiFis in hotels and holiday apartments (at least here in Germany) told me, to better take some precautions and bring my own WiFi repeater with me, which I could also use as an access point when there is access to LAN.

SCSS adventures

I’m currently in the process of improving my sites Hugo theme. I removed features I never used and simplified unorganized HTML and CSS, to enable adding new features (like better support for IndieWeb things) later. My theme was once based on the Hugo theme Mainroad, but I modified so much over the time that almost nothing is left from the original theme. The theme, which was a port of a WordPress theme called “MH Magazine”, supported Internet Explorer 11, but when I discovered CSS variables, I made use of them and broke Internet Explorer support on the way.

I'm taking my time

As you might have noticed, the frequency of new entries on this blog, or even the activity on my social media profiles, varies a lot. On some days I’m posting a lot. But then there are days with almost no activity at all. I’m currently in a working part of my dual study (where I go to the company working, instead of studying). In this part I have to do a practical project that involves coding something, but also everything else connected to it, like planing, writing etc.

How I Skip the Gym with Bodyweight Training at Home

I’m currently in my 9th week of my Runtastic Results training plan. It’s actually more than 9 weeks since I started, but that’s because my schedule was too busy sometimes and so some weeks took longer than planed. But believe it or not, it’s finally becoming fun. Around 11 weeks ago, I had an appointment at the doctor. I had some troubles and wanted to ask for help. Unfortunately the doctor didn’t really help me, but accused me of being to skinny and underweight (although that isn’t true, he didn’t even ask for my weight).
