Recently in June '22

I have recently noticed I have been writing ‘recently’ posts since September 2020. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting it to have been that long. Today, I am trying a different format. Sometimes I’m not sure on how to organize this monthly posts and I see some people posting bullet-list weekly or monthly posts so I decided to try.

It seems like Tailscale just introduced SSH over Tailscale which is quite interesting. Even though I haven’t been using Tailscale, I am a fan of the product and have used it briefly in the past. I’m looking forward to play with it a bit more. Do you use it? What for?

Telegram Premium is there, at least the announcement that it should be there, but the update on Google Play somehow not yet. Unfortunately, the announcement says that Premium is not (yet) available for users in Germany. ☹️ I’m especially waiting for the feature to be able to convert voice messages t…

I’m considering to try it for a month or two. The update is out for me and the plan is available here in the NL and the audio to text, assuming it works well, seems very nice.

🍴 Ate Loquats

A few days ago I shared I really wanted to buy loquats. Yesterday I managed to go to the Turkish supermarket with a friend. They are delicious!

Just ate: Loquats

It’s 28.9C inside my studio and I am trying to work, albeit not very successfully. Maybe I should’ve gone to university? Later today I want to go for a walk and I also need to go to the supermarket.

Just made a very small update to my website. Now, I can update reading progress much easily: I just need to go to the book’s page and then I will have this options:

Book Update Options

When reading physical books, I have a shortcut that allows me to scan the barcode of the book and enter the page. However, e-books don’t come with a barcode with the ISBN and I’m measuring the progress in percentage - it’s also possible to measure in pages though!

I urgently need to pay a visit to the Turkish supermarket. A friend of mine told me a few days ago that they are selling nΓͺsperas (Eriobotrya japonica), or loquats in English. It is a very delicious fruit but it is extremely hard to find here! My parents used to have a tree of them. When I get them, I will definitely post a picture. How much I miss this fruit!

A Few Weeks With a Kobo

A few weeks ago, I thought crossed my mind: buy an e-reader. It wasn’t the first time. In the beginning of this year, I read many books and I remembered considering it back then. However, that wasn’t the first time either. So I just decided to go with it and ordered a Kobo Clara HD.

Never heard of MicroPub channels, I have to check it out! Regarding video posts: Have you heard of Bunny.net Stream? There you can upload videos, they encode them to different resolutions and then you can use an HLS playlist. Also with custom domain. See this post as an example. To secure your media…

Have you heard of Bunny.net Stream?

I have but I didn’t have courage to check it out πŸ˜… I may look at it as it looks quite interesting and usable.

To secure your media files, you could use Token Authentication with Bunny.net

Yes, perhaps. I’ve seen that option but I also don’t want to have to sign all requests. That would require quite some changes. An option I can see is to have a separate Storage Zone with a separate subdomain to store private media and those would have to be signed.

Seems like a promising idea. It still creates the problem of: when uploading via the media endpoint, where should it go to? I can also just build my own backend uploader. Anyways, thinking out loud (out typed?).
