Because I used Prometheus and Grafana at work, I also tried them at home and I must say, monitoring isn’t as boring as I always thought. Next up Kubernetes? 😅

Why I now mute my watch

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

I am a user of a smartwatch. It is already the third smartwatch in my life (first the Sony SmartWatch 3, then the Samsung Galaxy Watch and now the Galaxy Watch 4) and I am actually quite satisfied with it. I always need an easy way to see the time, even when I’m riding my bike and can’t look at my smartphone (being on time is important to me!), plus it counts my steps and gives me the ability to view notifications right on my wrist so I don’t always have to get my smartphone out of my pocket first.

About listening to music

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

Sometimes I like to listen to music, I listen to a song, which gives me a good feeling, then another and another. I feel really good, sometimes I could even dance, although I don’t really like dancing.

Is it possible to replace your fingertips? Disassembling some Lego Technic has scraped mine… And tomorrow is the handover of keys for my first own apartment!

My blog(s) just got a new feature: A link to the current day archive (🇩🇪). There it is possible to see posts on today’s date in earlier years. Even more features are linked on my More (🇩🇪) page, by the way.

Hopefully OneUI 4 will extend the life of my smartphone

Published on in 📱 appydroid

Last year I wrote about how I check the battery health of my smartphone. The app I used for that shows a notification when a certain charge level is reached that you can unplug the smartphone so it doesn’t charge to 100%.
