In addition to Colin Walker and myself, Kev Quirk now seems to be using blogging software for journaling as well. Wordpress, self-hosted on his NAS.

go-shutdowner: Simple graceful shutdowns in Go

Published on in 👨‍💻 Dev

As I already mentioned, I’m trying to modularize parts of GoBlog to make the code more organized and to be able to test it better (thanks to the tests, I always notice small bugs that I can then correct).

“How do onion services work?”

Published on in 🔗 Links

I found this description that explains quite well how Onion Services (also called Hidden Services) work. I have to admit that Tor is an exciting thing.

If I understand Cloubhouse and this Telegram announcement correctly, Telegram now has features like Cloubhouse, except Telegram is not an iPhone-exclusive app.

Good weather today meant that there was a lot going on in the park. After almost -20°C last week, almost +20°C are expected this weekend.

I have this one Swedish domain that I use for my link shortener and my Gitea instance. Since I have set up catch-all email aliases for all my domains, I also get all mails sent to these domains. But only with the Swedish domain it happens to me that I regularly receive business emails or Microsoft Teams invitations, which obviously are not addressed to me, but only end up in my inbox because someone seems to have made a typo.

Windows Package Manager

Published on in 🔗 Links

I didn’t believe my eyes when I saw this: Windows has an official package manager now. The lack of a package manager was the thing that annoyed me most about Windows. That’s why I always used Chocolatey on Windows, but even that has room for improvement.

Microsoft is bringing Linux GUI apps to Windows 10

Published on in 🔗 Links

Last year I wrote a tutorial about how it’s possible to run Linux GUI apps on Windows using the Windows Subsystem for Linux. WSL 2 (with an integrated Linux Kernel) is coming soon, but Microsoft announced they are bringing support for Linux GUI apps to Windows 10 too. While I still prefer to use Linux directly, I think it’s still a great announcement and new feature. It’s definitely the year of Linux on the desktop.

Corona-Warn-App

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

The German government tasked SAP and Deutsche Telekom with the development of an open-source contact tracing app (named “Corona-Warn-App”) using the APIs from Google and Apple. Now they’ve published the code for the backend server. I took a quick look at the code and I’m quite a bit surprised about the quality and best practices used. They are using the Java-based Spring framework and use Postgres and minio to store data. Everything running in Docker. Even the Docker images are build using multi-stage Dockerfiles.
