Rebuilt my home server using and . Blog here, with Osaka pictures: janneinosaka.blogspot.com/2019

Highlight: Snaps work great for server stuff; and Nextcloud is now the single thing I need to do most anything I wanted with the server.

Knee pain (pfps) when running lately. Will need to drop my weekly distance I think, as well as increase strength training. Shame; it's the perfect season for running :(

Stardew Valley has been released for Android!

Let's have a silent minute in memory of my dear departed productivity for the next couple of months.

In Tokyo this weekend to renew my passport. Sweden makes it really expensive and inconvenient. Need to fly from Okinawa to apply in person - weekday mornings only - then return again in 3-4 weeks to pick it up. They don't send it by post; you can only get it at the embassy or a consulate.

But we were lucky with the weather - sunny and 15-23 degrees all weekend long. And a weekend in Tokyo is never a bad thing.

Passed JLPT N1. Happy, but: now how do I motivate myself to study going forward?

So I look at the Steam page, and the Euro Truck Simulator bundle is 75% off, and all available for Linux. So of course I buy it. I'm a weak, weak person...

But I bet I'll have a lot of fun hauling cargo across Europe for the next couple of months!

Bohemian Rapsody: As a movie it's pretty cookie-cutter drama fare. Competent but nothing special.

But: All the music is original Queen. So if you go to a good, modern movie theater, you get more than an hour of their very best music, piped through the most high-end sound system you are ever likely to experience. That's more than worth the price of admission no matter what the movie itself is like.

A 27:45 5K run yesterday. It might even have been a bit longer than 5K, due to GPS being only marginally better than navigating by the stars in high-density urban areas.

Oh, and I ran that fast because it was 4°C, and a cold drizzling rain. I wanted to get it over with. :)

How fucked-up is the net these days? Wannabe YouTube celebs post fake sponsored content in order to look more popular, that's how fucked-up the net is.
