Nice, the number of GoBlog users is growing! 🤓 The next step is a growing number of GoBlog developers. It would be great to have more people giving advice on how to improve the code. 😅 Any senior Go devs out there?

How I archive my favorite TV show to get rid of Amazon Prime

Published on in ✍️ Posts

I’m a fan of the German TV series “Notruf Hafenkante”, which is shown on the public broadcaster ZDF and is also available on their website. New episodes are released weekly, and older episodes are also made available on a regular basis. After a few months, however, they are no longer available for free. At the moment I have to buy an extra subscription for a Prime Video Channel to be able to watch all the old episodes. But that makes me dependent on Amazon, and I don’t like that.

AI is currently finding its way more and more into various software. There is ChatGPT, which sometimes feels like an all-knowing human, DeepL uses artificial intelligence not only for its translator, but also for its new tool that improves written text, or Bunny.net provides an API to generate images “on the edge”.

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.

Why didn’t I think of the very helpful Go module “net/http/pprof” earlier? This way I can profile my blog live. 🤓 (And hopefully find parts that I should or can optimize.)

What a good feeling when the hours you have invested in optimizing and testing actually bear fruit. In other words, my blog now uses less than 100 MB of memory, even though I have quite a few features enabled. My diary for example needs less than 20 MB. And if you compare that with WordPress, where the database alone needs more than 300 MB… 😄
