Sometimes I am a perfectionist. Having previously made my private diary blog available via a Tailscale sidecar container in my Tailnet, I have now integrated Tailscale directly into GoBlog. Both Tailscale and Tailscale’s Let’s Encrypt certificates can be configured directly in GoBlog. No sidecar container is needed anymore. A much simpler solution! (And Tailscale rocks!)

A new gadget arrived today: a Bluetooth transmitter and receiver. I can connect it to my stereo system, which is already more than 10 years old, and simply play music and audio via laptop or mobile phone. Works great!

I just took a quick look at my server logs. And I see that there are some bots that are constantly crawling my site. If that would be search engines, feed readers etc. that wouldn’t be a problem. But this are crawlers by companies whose websites try to sell me some tools to “make SEO easier” and “uncover the strong and weak points of my sites and their competitors”. They are crawling my site and make me pay for the server while they are building indices to sell for big money? I think that sucks.

A few days ago, an OVH data center went up in flames and was completely destroyed. This reminded me that it is important to store backups in another place on earth if possible, so better not in the same data center as the server that might burn down.
