Pinned toot

I live by four simple rules:

1. Don't be a dick.
2. Don't fuck it all up.
3. Don't forget to be kind.
4. Don't forget to have fun.

Astonishingly, they kind of cover every imaginable situation. And yes, I broke all of them in the past, too. I just try to not let it happen again.

Let's be excellent to eachother, you little pooptooters ♥️

Being a dead actor/singer doesn't mean you have to stop working:

> Some actors and movie studios are buckling down and preparing for an inevitable future when using scanning technology to preserve 3-D digital replicas of performers is routine. Just because your star is inconveniently dead doesn’t mean your generation-spanning blockbuster franchise can’t continue to rake in the dough. Get the tech right and you can cash in on superstars and iconic characters forever.

Bis auf das zu gute Abschneiden der NSDAfD war es eine gute Wahl, finde ich.

This damn thing is brilliant!

A few quick take-aways:

1. Netlify: ★★★★★ It's just made for static sites. Apart from their free custom SSL certs you can pretty much configure everything via config file in your repo. Ace.

2. Forestry.io: ★★★★★ Slick, super-easy to set up once you got Hugo and Netlify going. Having a CMS for a static site is game-changing.

3. Hugo (SSG): ★★★★ Crazy fast, appears to be solid. The templating syntax takes a bit getting-used-to, though.

4. Bulma (CSS): ★★★★ Me no designer but Bulma nice

My revamped blog is now live @ czm.io/.

Moved to a shorter domain, switched to a Hugo + Gitlab + Forestry + Netlify setup. It's still a static site, it's still super-fast, it's still devoid of any tracking and analytics. (I just don't care about *those* numbers.)

The heart of the site is a Gitlab repo. Netlify runs Hugo & serves the site every time changes are pushed to the repo. Forestry (CMS) is committing to the repo. Convenient AF.

This warrants a longer post …later.

The Atlantic: "Why You’re Probably Getting a Microchip Implant Someday" theatlantic.com/technology/arc

I got myself chipped a few years back because my phone didn't have a fingerprint reader but NFC capabilities. I used the chip in my hand to unlock the phone all the time for a year or so.

These days, the RFID tag carries some emergency data but nothing else. I wish it could do more, tho.

Plan fürs Wochenende: Blog-Relaunch von carlo.zottmann.org/ mit Unterstützung von Kategorien (Posts, Micro Posts, Link Posts), damit ich endlich mal wieder einen Platz habe, wo ich Links etc. posten kann, die ich früher in meinen Newsletter gekippt habe.

Stack: Hugo (Static Site Generator, gohugo.io) + Forestry (CMS für SSG, forestry.io/) + vermutlich Netlify (Hosting, netlify.com/).

Mal schauen, ob ich es an *diesem* Wochenende endlich schaffe.

Saw that custom shop truck in Munich the other day. What a hilarious little hog!

"What's on your mind?"

It's World Mental Health Day.

I'm going to spend a few minutes, each hour, thinking of the people I know (and have known) that have been affected by their own, or someone else's #mentalhealth - and maybe send a few vibes out.

You're not alone; you can get help support.

It's not pointless; there is always a way forward (even if you can't see it yet).

Keep kicking the darkness; eventually you'll see light.

Lieber deutscher Mittelstand:

Wenn Ihr auf Eure Stellenanzeigen Bewerbungen per Email bekommt, *bitte bestätigt den Empfang*! Ein simples "ist angekommen, wir melden uns, danke" reicht völlig.

Überlegt mal, was Nicht-Reaktionen beim Menschen auslöst, die u.U. schon seit Monaten auf der Suche sind:

- Verwirrung ("Ist es überhaupt angekommen?")
-Selbstzweifel ("Ignorieren die mich, weil ich nicht geeignet bin?")

Für etwas mehr Respekt für die Bewerbenden & Miteinander auf Augenhöhe! DANKE.

There's a commercial soft landing planned for early 2019! 🌖

The people who own the companies destroying the planet have names and addresses.

IANAL but calling someone who lied under oath to serve as judge on your country's highest court might end up further destabilizing your banana republic.

Watching this episode of "Judge Oathbreaker" from afar has been demoralizing as fuck
