Bitwarden Unified

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

Bitwarden (my favorite and recommended password manager) is offering a “new deployment option”. This new option combines all microservices into a single Docker container and doesn’t require 11 different containers anymore. And it supports PostgreSQL and MariaDB in addition to MS SQL.

DeepL Write

Published on in 🔗 Links

I’m a big fan of DeepL for translations. Before trying to write more blog posts directly in English to improve my skills, I wrote many blog posts in German and then translated them. The texts were probably better than my non-native English.

“Bloggers, Dump Your Twitter Card Tags”

Published on in 🔗 Links

It’s crazy to think how much bandwidth is being used by metadata tags. Every company wants to invent it’s own new system. Wouter Groeneveld gives a brief overview and recommends getting rid of them (for the most part). I agree with him completely. The only one of these systems that my blog supports is Microformats, which is quite popular among the IndieWeb community.

My websites have finally favicons again. And I can update them using a simple web interface. 😄

With all my SQL and SQLite posts, this link is probably also quite interesting: sqlite3 fiddle.

Tabs versus Spaces? Tabs!

But I prefer neither Vim nor Emacs, but VSCode, nano and Notepad++. 🙈

Self-hosting my calendar and contacts using Baïkal

Published on in ✍️ Posts

I recently moved my emails to Purelymail. And since I also used the contacts and calendar synchronization feature of my previous email provider, I also transferred the contacts and calendar entries to Purelymail via WebDAV using WinSCP.

Not enough tests

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

GoBlog’s test coverage is increasing (currently about 41%), but I keep being reminded there is nothing like enough or even too many tests. I still find some stupid bugs that aren’t covered by automatic tests.

Telegram Ads

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

So Telegram now has ads. But unlike the ads from Google, Facebook or Apple, the ads are not personalized and much more privacy friendly. The ads simply consist of a maximum 160-character message with no external links and are displayed only in large public channels.

Previously, to work on my code server, I always installed Visual Studio Code locally and then accessed the server using the Remote SSH extension. But that no longer seems necessary now that I have code-server installed. Using code-server, Visual Studio Code can be easily used in the browser. Cool project!
