Adactio: Journal - Split

But the split that worries the most is this: The people who make the web vs. the people who are excluded from making the web.

Excellent article by Jeremy Keith!

"Mit dem Paternoster einmal im Kreis fahren" auf der Bucket-List abgehakt. Zeit wirds. Weeeeee!

2:50h von Nürnberg nach Berlin mit der @db_bahn. Da kann man sich dran gewöhnen.

There's no office like home office. - wildcard DNS for any IP Address

Stop editing your etc/hosts file with custom hostname and IP address mappings. allows you to do that by mapping any IP Address to a hostname.

This is really handy.

All your E-mail, from all your accounts, in one place. Cypht is not your father's webmail. Unless you are one of my daughters, in which case it is your father's webmail.

Quite an interesting concept.


ngrok - secure introspectable tunnels to localhost

ngrok allows you to expose a web server running on your local machine to the internet. Just tell ngrok what port your web server is listening on.

This looks quite helpful for web development. Found in the @bitsundso picks.


CNCF Cloud Native Interactive Landscape

COI - Chat Over IMAP

COI - Chat Over IMAP - is a universal chat protocol that is Free, Open, Easy, Safe and does not require developers to build or maintain a server.

COI uses an email address and any IMAP server as its infrastructure. This means it can already connect 3.8 billion users - anyone with an email address.

Developers can now concentrate on building clients for any device, in any language (Java, Swift, JavaScript, Dart, Kotlin, etc.), and let COI handle the communication.

Yeah, right. IMAP?

Signal v. Noise: Designing for the web ought to mean making HTML and CSS

Also not interested in retreating into the idea that you need a whole team of narrow specialists to make anything work. That “full-stack” is somehow a point of derision rather than self-sufficiency. That designers are so overburdened with conceptual demands on their creativity that they shouldn’t be bordered or encouraged to learn how to express those in the native materials of the web. Nope. No thanks!

Designing for the modern web in a way that pleases users with great, fast designs needn’t be this maze of impenetrable complexity. We’re making it that! It’s possible not to.

Sounds like @dhh would be a good match for


PlantUML: Is it possible to only use straight lines in a class diagram?

At least there is an option to use straight lines. Curved lines in an UML diagram look really strange to me. The implementation is far from perfect, but gets the job done for now.


Arc42 by Example

Real software architectures, documented with the arc42 template. Helps you jumpstart your own documentation.

When I'm finished with my current Arc42 book, this seems to be a good follow-up read.


Notion – The all-in-one workspace for your notes, tasks, wikis, and databases.

Write, plan, collaborate, and get organized. Notion is all you need — in one tool.

Looks interesting, but I guess I have no need for it in my current workflow. Maybe this is something for the future.
