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. Today I found out about rathole, and what can I say? It works great and seems to be much faster than my previous solution!

Update: Thanks for all the answers! I have now tried to repair the ink cartridge, now something is printed again, but somewhat blurred. I finally decided to buy a black/white laser printer with scanner, a Xerox B225 as B-ware. I will probably report…

Finally I have implemented a kind of trash in GoBlog. When I delete a post, it is first marked as deleted and can be restored within 7 days. Unfortunately the integration with ActivityPub is not that easy. ActivityPub allows to Undo a Delete activity, but Mastodon doesn’t support that, just like Mastodon doesn’t support Updates. 🙄

It’s time again to ask my followers: I have my homepage jlelse.dev, but I’m thinking about using jlelse.com for a more professional and appealing website about me. I can program, but my design skills are somewhat limited. What should I use to design and create the site? I used Carrd a couple of years ago. But are there any other recommendations?

GitHub has a new web-based editor based on Visual Studio Code. For me, this fulfills one use case in particular: if you want to browse code to see how certain things were implemented in other projects, this editor now allows you to easily jump to references. This way you don’t have to tediously open many tabs and manually search for files. And it is probably also much easier to look at pull requests this way.

This problem is finally solved. The solution: Make the webmention endpoint URL in the HTML head absolute. Now I will finally get mentions from micro.blog again!

Plain text writing

Always when I see news about writing tools like the iOS app Ulysses (which apparently just released an update), I ask myself if people really need apps like this to develop a writing habit?

“The Untold Story of SQLite”

Published on in 🔗 Links

I like listening to interviews with SQLite developer Richard Hipp (as you may know). He’s a great storyteller and you can always learn something new from him. This podcast episode is no exception.

Even though it is often said that the Internet does not forget, it does forget some things. When people shut down their websites, delete sites or even sell their domains.
