Life in the Time of Corona.

We are all getting used to our new life under COVID-19 lockdown, where the end of our explorable world is the end of our property, and after that the computer suddenly turns us back and walks us back to our house. My work day can now officially start at 8:30 because hey, it’s not like I’m stuck in traffic. I’m also saving some € on fuel, and by the way on food as well, it seems so far. How’s your lockdown going so far?

Nextcloud 18.0.2: my first hands on take on NextCloud Photos.

Nextcloud 18.0.2 arrived on my box. (This time I actually let things run their course and didn’t early adopt, it took 2 months for it to be pushed. Admittedly I also simply didn’t have time.)

To me the biggest real news in this release is the new Photos app. Continue reading Nextcloud 18.0.2: my first hands on take on NextCloud Photos.

I’m really stoked about Calendar/Talk integration in the new Nextcloud Hub.

Nextcloud announced the Nextcloud Hub last Friday, with a galore of changes. Changes include workflow automation, a new mail client, a Google Docs-like online office client integration, and much more. You need to read the presser to get the whole list.

Nextcloud users saw something was up early afternoon…

To me however, the most interesting upgrade so far with this change is the new major version of Calendar.

Hey wolf moon.

I’ve prepped for the lunar eclipse earlier today, but to what end — turns out it was only a “penumbral lunar eclipse”. Fun fact: “penumbral” is latin for “if you don’t read about it before, you won’t even notice it.”

(If you are an ignorant jerk like me, you can read more on what this eclipse was about, here.) Continue reading Hey wolf moon.

New house for my Kodi. (Geek alert.)

My Netflix enabled Kodi is, apparently, hot stuff. Literally hot. After some time Netflixin’, especially when watching at graphically heavy stuff (like fire, or a forest), it’ll give me the little top right thermometer we all know and (dis)like:

Raspberry Pi overheating icon (the icon is not overheating, the Raspberry Pi is)
As seen on TV!

Note ars left to cry.

Apparently Ariana Grande is struggling with finding a good note taking solution as much as I do, my arse left to cry too (almost) looking for it — who thought that of all things, the most mundane workflow, note taking, would be the hardest to find an alternative to! We are soulmates, Ariana and I!

Runblog (rainblog) Gothenburg, 14/Oct.

I haven’t done a runblog in a while, mostly because I was renovating (and thus avoiding travel; my Flygskam kicking in anyway so I mostly travel to Belgium by train these days), but now I’m in Göteborg (or Gothenburg), and this proved a perfect runblog oppo. Or so I thought at least.
