rathole – ngrok alternative

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

Some time ago I tried to make my Nitter instance available on the Internet from home via Tailscale, Caddy and an own building block in between, but stopped it again a short time later because it didn’t work that well somehow.

Move mastered

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

Finally it’s done, after a super exhausting day, I’m finally lying in bed, the move is done! All the furniture I need and also a total of 18 moving boxes with my stuff are now here. My girlfriend and her family helped me with it. With a total of 8 people, everything went quickly and before 3pm we were ready so that my girlfriend could help me unpack boxes.

Why I renamed my blogs

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

After a bit of consideration and a poll on Fosstodon, which shows a clear result even before it ends, I decided to rename this blog from “jlelse’s Blog – Thoughts, stories and ideas” to “Jan-Lukas Else – Thoughts of an IT expert”. Likewise, my German blog from “einGeek – Mehr als nur Internet und Programmieren” to “Jan-Lukas Else – Gedanken eines IT-Experten”.

First impressions of my new printer

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

I recently bought a new printer: the Xerox B225. I discovered it by chance (while looking for a good printer) as a reduced return in an online store. Someone must have just tried it out briefly and sent it back. I’m happy!
