Heute vor einem Jahr bin ich offiziell mit meiner besten Freundin zusammengekommen, seitdem sind wir nicht mehr nur beste Freunde, sondern auch ein Paar. Wie ich vor etwa einem Jahr geschrieben habe: vor einem Jahr und ein paar Monaten hätte ich kaum damit gerechnet, dass dies je passieren würde. Aber es ist schön, dass es doch so gekommen ist.

You probably heard about HEY, the email service that claims to fix email. But let me share this service with you: Heyyyyyyyyyyyy.com. It’s way cooler than HEY. 😉

I used to use system fonts for my blog theme, but I rethought this decision and converted to the following font-family in my CSS:

It’s amazing how fast time can go by when you’re in a flow state. It’s an incredible feeling. Especially at the moment, when one usually has rather too much time.

Reply to: A note by Henrique Dias

Could you share more information or code about how you transform your knowledge base notes into Hugo pages? I tried creating a wiki or knowledge base on my website too, but somehow I still miss a good workflow to make more use of it. And do you create all notes directly in English or do you translate them later?

I just migrated my main server (a VPS at Hetzner) from RancherOS to Alpine. While I considered Alpine already as a Docker host when I setup RancherOS, Alpine wasn’t Docker-host-ready yet. But time passed and now it’s even simpler to setup a Alpine Docker host than it is to install and maintain a RancherOS server. I really love Alpine for it’s simplicity and lightweight size and use it as a base image whenever I need to create a Dockerfile. Let’s see if I’ll get any unpleasant surprises or if everything works as expected. And sorry for any downtime of my blog or website.

Photopea: Photoshop in the browser

Published on in 🔗 Links

By chance in a Hacker News thread about “MSPaint in JavaScript” I discovered the tool Photopea. Photopea seems to be a free JavaScript-based Photoshop alternative that runs in any browser. What surprises me the most: Photopea is developed by a single person. I don’t use tools like Photoshop or Gimp very often, but I will try Photopea the next time I need to edit photos and images.

How ad companies can track you without cookies

Today I read an article by Kev Quirk about how browser fingerprinting works. In his article (I recommend to read it) he not only explains how websites can use the various information your browser sends to give you an almost unique fingerprint, but he also linked to a tool called “Panopticlick” by the EFF (Electronic Frontier Foundation).

Conversing through email

Published on in 🔗 Links
Updated on

In the recent past I got a similar experience like Brandon Nolet by conversing through email. Emails don’t have this presure to respond as soon as possible. You can take your time to think and then write a better response. Sometimes it can take days, weeks or even months. With email that’s not really a problem.

Why I Deleted My Reddit Account - I don’t like social media

Published on in ✍️ Posts

Maybe I’m getting paranoid right now, or maybe I’m going into some sort of social media detox. After deleting my Facebook account some time ago and saying goodbye to Snapchat, I also deleted my reddit account. Why? That’s what I’m telling you here…
