First experience with my new unlimited mobile phone contract while traveling: The phone hotspot works much better than the ICE (German high speed train) WiFi usually does. At most, there are small interruptions in tunnels, but otherwise surfing, writing e-mails, and listening to music work perfectly. Even remote programming works. It was worth it…

Miniflux 2.0.33

Published on in 💬 Micro

Miniflux 2.0.33 got released. An exciting release because it features Telegram integration (new articles can be sent via Telegram) on the one hand, and on the other hand it includes my contributed changes to also hide individual feeds on the unread list and not just whole categories.

Follow websites without RSS using the XPath RSS-Bridge

Published on in 👨‍💻 Dev

I currently use RSS-Bridge to follow Telegram channels and read new messages in Miniflux. RSS-Bridge is a really cool project that tries to provide RSS (or ATOM, JSON, HTML…) feeds for sites that don’t do that directly.

Today I went for a ride on my non-electric city bike. It’s fun to be pushed by an electric motor, but riding with your own power isn’t so bad either and it makes me feel good to push harder on the pedals sometimes. I’m also thinking about buying a road bike as a “reward” after my bachelor’s degree to do a bit more sport again, but one that you can ride on more than just the road. 🚴‍♂️🤔

One advantage when developing your own CMS software is that you can add new features very easily. Although you should not push this too far that unnecessarily many features collect and afterwards the quality suffers, but some things are still good to have.

Yes, Tomáš! I was thinking about exactly that. Just a simple SVG favicon with an Unicode emoji, maybe this one: “👨‍💻”.

I just disabled BunnyCDN for my blog. I have made a huge effort to implement efficient in-memory caching in GoBlog, including support for strong ETags that stay the same across software restarts (because they are just SHA-256 hashes of the content). I will still use BunnyCDN for the media hosted on my blog though. A CDN is probably overkill for a low-traffic fast-software-with-caching blog on a fast virtual private server with fast network. GoBlog is not WordPress. 😁

With every day it’s getting dark a bit earlier, especially since the shift to “winter time”. It’s almost dark after finishing work. Nevertheless it’s worth to go for a walk.
