Old content warning

Published on in ✍️ Posts

Recently I implemented a setting in my blog software to disable the warning above posts older than one year. A setting that has its justification.

What a good feeling when the hours you have invested in optimizing and testing actually bear fruit. In other words, my blog now uses less than 100 MB of memory, even though I have quite a few features enabled. My diary for example needs less than 20 MB. And if you compare that with WordPress, where the database alone needs more than 300 MB… 😄

Today GoBlog got the option to configure your own map tile server. So not only standard OpenStreetMap is possible, but also Stamen Toner for example. Fits much better to my blog aesthetics, right? (See the map page.)

Yesterday and this morning I worked from the office rather than from home due to planned power interruptions. Impressions: My monitor at home is better, my chair is more comfortable and at home it is quieter (there is construction work in the office right now). Only the Internet is much faster in the office.

One of the tech news sites I read has switched from Disqus to native WordPress comments. Where uBlock Origin used to block more than 15 items (unfortunately I don’t remember the exact number), now only 2 items are blocked. 👍 (also for not switching to “Comment on Twitter” instead)

Modularizing GoBlog?

Published on in 💭 Thoughts
Updated on

I just separated the function I told you about the other day (the one for marking text with “==”) as a Go module. This way the main code remains more organized and if I don’t need the feature any more, the module is still usable. Also for other people who might need the same functionality. I think I should modularize GoBlog even more. 🤔

I just updated my Ubuntu installation from 20.10 to 21.04 and I have to say (again): I love Ubuntu updates, they are so simple and fast! I can probably do 5 major Ubuntu updates in the time I do one major Windows update.

WSL 2 support for Linux GUI apps is coming soon

Published on in 🔗 Links

Last year’s announcement that WSL 2 would soon support Linux GUI apps seems to be getting more real, as the feature is now present in an Insider build. Running Linux GUI apps in WSL 2 then makes such workarounds as I once described unnecessary. I’m curious to see in which release the feature will end up.

This thread and comment in the forum of the blogging platform Ghost show me, that it was the right decision to not use Ghost anymore since 2018.
