Recently, I have work enough to do to occupy three people. Usually, I catch up on some things in the evenings, sometimes until late at night. That’s not really sustainable and after a really shitty and long meeting today, I’ll leave things be. Some days are just not worth even being annoyed.

I do all my task management in Obsidian. Mike Schmitz on The Sweet Setup has a great overview of what’s possible with it. I learned some things and will optimize my workflow 🙃

If you decide to give task management in Obsidian a shot, there’s a mindset shift you have to embrace before it will click:

Location doesn’t matter.

This is the key thing that made this work for me and it’s the reason I love doing this in Obsidian. It frees me up. Tasks can be written everywhere! No Inbox or anything necessary anymore. Tasks are just there and collected where needed. Really amazing!

Sounds like an Apple Fanboy, but I really think they get the AI thing right. It’s integrated, personal, private. The AI companies say “Here! look! Cool Technolgy! Future! We’re not killing us all (we’ll totally do though)” Apple puts this technology into actual use that’s relevant to a normal human.

Alright… wanted to watch the WWDC Keynote, but after that intro I got sidetracked. Listening to Mötley Crüe instead. Thanks Phil!

Moved some domains from Hover to Porkbun. It’s a breeze to set up and fast… and it’s a a lot cheaper. Plus, it supports something crucial for my setup: CNAME flattening records. Not possible at Hover. I’ll wait and see how the move works out with my email and if everything is smooth… bye bye Hover.

I‘m already looking forward to seeing Wanda live later this year. Their new Album Ende nie is out today. Bei niemand anders is the best, loveliest, most heartbreaking song I‘ve heard in a very long time. The story behind it makes the hardest rock tear up. 🎶

This looks interesting! I’ll give Omakub a try. DHH built a one-line installer for a beautiful Ubuntu development setup.

And while I’m at it… I stumbled across a recent video about whether to still recommend the reMarkable in 2024. I definitely would. It’s the one device I would re-buy instantly without even thinking about the money.

I found this review of the Daylight tablet on YouTube. Confirms my initial impression… it looks promising, probably perfect for my use cases, but it’s confusing and the way the company markets their display is a little weird and maybe even dishonest. We’ll see how it goes, but I wish them all the success t... hutaffe.blog

I have a long-standing theory, that in many cases, you can extrapolate how the career of a band will evolve, from the way the very first song feels on their debut album. Examples that come to my mind immediately are Wanda (for German-speaking folks) or Greta van Fleet.

This Daylight DC-1 looks like the perfect device for me… but I‘m not paying 730$ for a device by a company nobody ever heard of and which nobody ever saw in real life, no reviews, nothing. Guess I have to wait until it’s actually out 🤷‍♂️ Definitely interesting though!

Finally some outrage again over something someone said. We definitely need more of that stuff. 🙄 It always has to be black or white and if someone says it’s grey… let them burn 🔥

The grass is always greener on the other side
Neighbour’s got a new car that you wanna drive
And when time is running out, you wanna stay alive
We all live under the same sky
We all will live, we all will die
There is no wrong, there is no right
The circle only has one side

Tried to live without time tracking since beginning of the year. Recent changes at work are so overwhelming, that I want to get back into that to back up my theories. Tried a few time tracking apps and wanted something simple and cheap. But now I’m back using Tyme. It’s cheap compared to the big players, y... hutaffe.blog

I‘m using Velja now to automatically open internal work websites and tools in Chrome. It makes me sad, but it seems too much work for web developers to support any other browser now. Welcome to Internet Explorer again.

To be honest, I start to not like that every other service is being pulled into micro.blog via ActivityPub. Just the fact that by looking at a random conversation I might be interested in, I might see the usual Twitter outrage coming from Bluesky which is the sole reason I deleted Twitter… ugh.

New Johnny Cash album with new unreleased tracks coming out later this year. Not sure what to think about that. Leaning towards excitement though! 🎶
