So far I configured most (almost all) settings for GoBlog through a YAML file. But this is not so optimal, after all it happens sometimes that I want to change a small setting, such as the description of a post section, from my smartphone. This would work somehow via SSH, but ideal is something else. Email conversations with Andrés Cárdenas inspired me to finally start the project “settings in the database”. The first step was to make it possible to configure the mentioned post sections. This is now finally possible directly via an administration web interface! This should also be a good step in the direction of making GoBlog more friendly for other users and of course it makes my life easier as well.

Yesterday I announced a spontaneously developed GoBlog feature, reactions. The post also got a lot of reactions, over 900 times the buttons were pressed. But I also got some comments.

At work I may soon be able to program in Java 17 instead of Java 8. But still with Eclipse. 😅

I didn’t get around to blogging about the fact that Miniflux recently got a new version. With it, if an entry doesn’t have a title, it finally shows a snippet of the content instead of just the URL as the title. A great new feature if you follow a lot of micro blogs. Regarding micro-blogs, I’m also in the process of reading Manton Reece’s book draft.

Ok, so I have now installed CloudReady, switched to the beta channel as well, but I can’t use Linux because my CPU is not secured against Spectre/Meltdown and CloudReady doesn’t come with microcode updates. Until that comes, my ThinkPad will probably only be for browsing, watching videos, and blogging…

Chrome OS Flex and CloudReady

Published on in ✍️ Posts

At first I missed the news, but today I somehow stumbled across it: Google has released an early access version of “Chrome OS Flex”, as a result of the integration of CloudReady into Chrome OS. CloudReady also ran under my radar until today, but I did take the time to give both a try.

How to remove bloatware

Published on in 📱 appydroid

After I put my new SIM card in my phone today (yes, the one with the unlimited mobidata volume - thanks for all the replies to my recent post!), I noticed that there suddenly appeared a new app that wanted to offer me additional services via SMS, of course for a fee. An app with no benefit for me, even annoying me by the presence of the app icon in the app drawer and the missing possibility to deactivate the app!

A few days ago I changed my home network so that the FRITZ!Box now directly establishes a DSL connection and I can use IPv6 again. Too bad that I only now noticed that this has led to the fact that it used the DNSv6 server of the ISP. Now I adjusted everything so that AdGuard Home is also used for DNSv6. Less advertising and tracking again…
