Tests for GoBlog

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

Recently I’ve been investing more time in refactoring and creating unit and integration tests for GoBlog. After all, I don’t want to just make sure my blog is working properly through trial and error, I want to be able to prove that with automated tests.

There is a new option for mobile offline maps: Organic Maps. This app is based on the source code of maps.me, before the acquisition last year.

Hoping to get faster WiFi and newer Bluetooth, I bought a new WiFi miniPCIe card for my laptop. As it turns out, there is a whitelist of allowed cards in the BIOS of many ThinkPads. Why is that? 🙄

From this whole messenger discussion, I get the impression that it’s harder for some people to install a second messenger than it is to do a tax declaration in Germany.

Today I have heard again a discussion about WhatsApp, Telegram, Signal and Threema and there was the question to which messenger one would switch from WhatsApp.

I will participate at least partially in the IndieWebCamp East. Probably only “in the forenoon”, because I am 6 hours ahead. It is my first IndieWebCamp, I am very excited!

Microsoft’s underwater data centre resurfaces after two years

Published on in 🔗 Links

Underwater data centers powered by 100% renewable energy are a very interesting idea. It is also noteworthy that they seem to be much more reliable than conventional DCs and that an “unreliable grid” isn’t such a big problem.

GNOME’s games are awesome

Published on in 💭 Thoughts
Updated on

I almost never play computer games, but what I sometimes like are classic logic games like Minesweeper or Sudoku. And I must say, the versions from GNOME (on Linux), GNOME Mines and GNOME Sudoku are really nice. Simple design, plain and focused on the game with the most important features. I have also just discovered on the GNOME Wiki that there are a number of other simple games available, like 2048, Four in a row or Chess (Chess is probably not so simple). I install most apps via Flatpak and Flathub, but most distributions should also have them directly in their repositories. The advantages of Flatpak are that it is very easy to install and you always get the latest version.
