Thoughts of an IT expert

💭 Thoughts: 2019-07

Welcome to the Thoughts section of my blog. Thoughts are better kept on my blog than on Twitter or other online platforms.


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.

Journaling with rwtxt

Published on in 💭 Thoughts
Updated on

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).

Better Webmention support on this blog

A few days ago, I already added support for webmentions and microformats2 to this blog. Now I added a form at the end of every article, so you can submit your mentions more easily.

PGP, Webmentions and Microformats

Published on in 💭 Thoughts
Updated on

Today I did my first step to join the IndieWeb. I first had to generate a PGP key (that’s really new to me, I never did this before 😅) to be able to use my website for authentication. After I was able to successfully login to Webmention.io, the service, which can receive webmentions and pingbacks for you, I added support for webmentions to my blog, so I see when someone from the IndieWeb references my posts. After that I also added microformats2 support, so my blog should now be easier to parse.

Huel vs. Myprotein Whole Fuel Blend

Published on in 💭 Thoughts
Updated on

I think I never wrote about “meal replacements powders” on this blog, while I wrote a pretty extensive posts on my German blog once. So if you understand German, you might like to take a read, otherwise maybe try a translation.

Medium things

Published on in 💭 Thoughts
Updated on

I didn’t wrote something for the last days, because I was busy with two things. First: Because there are currently semester breaks I’m at work again and there I already spent the whole days coding and looking at screens. Second: I was busy reworking the Medium archive on my German blog.
