Disclaimer: I use my nickname for 20-ish years now, since my college days. I made it up from my first name when I started to use IRC and MUDs. In these days of drama it makes me uncomfortable that there's a similarity with the name of a site I don't even want to mention.

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, please just scroll on. :)

Got my Fujinon 35mm/f1.4 I wanted since I've had my camera. This is the last one for a longer time, should be fine to wander around with the lenses I've got now. Time to actually get better with photography :)

Apollo 12 landing sequence with explanations - amazing me every time I watch these.. considering how precisely they get to the designated landing site with that computing capacity they had at the time.

Is there a way to filter out messages in certain languages? Not that I have any problem with those, just I don't understand them anyway (federated feed).

Working from home with a two-year-old is challenging. Not saying I was able to do too much so far :)

Time to clean up my nginx reverse proxy setup and the certificate renewal scripts. This little VM is getting a tad overloaded :)

Got a bug report on a small project on Github that I've actually never thought anyone was using besides me. \o/

The heat is peaking today. Already unbearable, feeling like in an oven.

What server is using the user-agent string "GangGo/v0 (Federation library)" ?

Another heat wave coming this week, next 3 days going to be tough. I've seen much higher maximums expected for western part of Europe, though (Germany, France). Already waiting for the rain :)

It's strangely soothing to chill out watching flightradar and listening to the air traffic controllers of the nearby airport talking to planes.

Raspberry Pi 4 looks good so far, except the part that it does not yet support netboot. I guess I will need to wait for a bit.

Still cannot look up any external users via search on my pleroma instance. Weird++.

OK it turns out when you do the SSL cert renewal automation in a mindless ways it also silently messes up any activitypub servers. See also: having an explicit route on my reverse proxy to /.well-known without exceptions to stuff like webfinger.
