My September ‘22 in Review

Published on in ✍️ Posts

Now September is over, a month in which I have again extraordinarily blogged so little, even as little as not since the beginning of 2019. But that’s no wonder, after all, this was my first month in the new job and I also spent a lot of time with my girlfriend, who was with me for the month.

I don’t know a lot about HTTP/3. But today I updated Caddy to version 2.6 and my sites should support HTTP/3 by default now. More speed? 🤔

GoToSocial seems like a promising alternative to Mastodon. It’s written in Go (👍 in my opinion), lightweight and pretty good documented so far. It’s still “alpha software” but seems to make great progress. In the past, I self hosted a microblog.pub instance and then after some time without any Fediverse profile other than my blog, which has ActivityPub support as well, signed up at Fosstodon to be able to reply to blog comments from the Fediverse. I already set up an instace of GTS, but will probably wait to use it as my primary Fediverse profile until GTS enters the beta stage sometime in 2023 according to the roadmap.

wsl-vpnkit: Internet for WSL2 distros behind a VPN

Published on in 🔗 Links

I’m still alive. 👋 Today, at work, I discovered a nice little tool for WSL2. On my work laptop I need to use Cisco AnyConnect to connect to the corporate network. Unfortunately this blocks Internet access in Windows Subsystem for Linux VMs (at least in the Ubuntu VM, I tried to use for some Docker stuff). I tried a lot of different hacks and workarounds, but none worked. Until I found wsl-vpnkit. It just works. 😄

Now that I have access to Udemy Business and can watch many, many courses for free, I subscribed to two courses. One to improve my English and one to improve my quick-wittedness. Let’s see if I complete them and if they really help.

A script for Go dependency updates

Published on in 👨‍💻 Dev

I regularly update the dependencies of my blog software, a Go based project. Dependency updates are important because they can contain security fixes or fixes for bugs.

First work day in my new job

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

My first day at my new job is over, and it went quite well despite the lack of sleep. Super nice colleagues and I am already full in the training.

Why can’t I sleep when I’m excited? And why am I not excited during the day, but then my thoughts are circling at night? Well at least I slept well yesterday. Maybe that helps to get through the day somehow after only 3 or 4 hours of sleep.

“Can YOU Fix Climate Change?”

Published on in 🔗 Links

I just stumbled upon this video by “Kurzgesagt – In a Nutshell”. It’s about the climate crisis and that the only solution might be a systemic change and I absolutely agree.
