Software

I have just updated my Nextcloud install from Nextcloud 16 to Nextcloud 17. It's a Docker-based installation on my Odroid HC2, which I use for a lot of self-hosted softwares. (Thanks to Docker I can forget about all things PHP!) The update worked without problems. And my first subjective impression is, that it runs a bit faster than before. I really appreciate that Nextcloud improves the code with every release, so that it runs faster before, although often new features get added.

Journaling with rwtxt

For about a month now, I do journaling again. Every evening before I go to bed, I try to write down everything that comes to my mind. I usually write what I have done that day, what my emotions where and other things that I thought about during the day. It has a very positive effect to do that. I wrote about that more detailed on my German blog (Google's translation).
Visual Studio Code is an awesome text editor. It is in fact my favorite one. I use it for writing blog posts, I use it for looking at code (although I prefer JetBrains IDEs for actual coding) and I use it whenever I need a text editor. What I really like is the plugin system. There are plugins for almost everything and you also get recommended addons for the file you currently look at (probably based on the filetype).
Technology is awesome. Technology can simplify life, but it can also be fun. Playing with technology (doesn't matter if it's software or hardware) always fascinated people. And I'm one of them. I recently played a lot with software on my notebook. I found out that a program called “Snap” (not Snapchat) isn't working somehow. I tried to fix it and tried many ways, but didn't succeed. As a workaround, I installed another program with the name “Flatpak”.
I recently got a new (refurbished) notebook and already wrote a post about that, but this time, I would like to focus on my software setup. What programs do I use for developing? What do I use for writing? And what is my favorite web browser? But first let's start with the Operating System: Operating System: Solus I love Linux and I'm already on the Linux site for a few years.
