Is it possible to replace your fingertips? Disassembling some Lego Technic has scraped mine… And tomorrow is the handover of keys for my first own apartment!

One year of private diary blogging

Published on in ✍️ Posts

This morning I wrote my 365th diary entry. With that, I now have my first full year of daily private diary blogging complete. A milestone! The statistics tell me that’s 32245 words with 186900 characters and an average word count of 88 words per post.

Could you share more information or code about how you transform your knowledge base notes into Hugo pages? I tried creating a wiki or knowledge base on my website too, but somehow I still miss a good workflow to make more use of it. And do you create all notes directly in English or do you translate them later?

I just migrated my main server (a VPS at Hetzner) from RancherOS to Alpine. While I considered Alpine already as a Docker host when I setup RancherOS, Alpine wasn’t Docker-host-ready yet. But time passed and now it’s even simpler to setup a Alpine Docker host than it is to install and maintain a RancherOS server. I really love Alpine for it’s simplicity and lightweight size and use it as a base image whenever I need to create a Dockerfile. Let’s see if I’ll get any unpleasant surprises or if everything works as expected. And sorry for any downtime of my blog or website.

Photopea: Photoshop in the browser

Published on in 🔗 Links

By chance in a Hacker News thread about “MSPaint in JavaScript” I discovered the tool Photopea. Photopea seems to be a free JavaScript-based Photoshop alternative that runs in any browser. What surprises me the most: Photopea is developed by a single person. I don’t use tools like Photoshop or Gimp very often, but I will try Photopea the next time I need to edit photos and images.
