Blog de Notes

At this point should not be anything new that I'm playing with my own Mastodon instance. It is meant to be focused on a village in the core of Catalunya, so the scope is so small that I'm alone there đŸ€Ș

This also brings me the opportunity to work towards some goals kinda freely: get as much related content as possible, as much automated as possible. So next direct step is: from whom can I get more content? And then, how? Once you answer the first, the second usually comes as a bot getting content from RSS feeds or other Mastodon or Twitter accounts. And because life is not fun otherwise, let's reinvent the wheel and do everything from scratch: a bot to get and publish content to Mastodon.

Not so long since I decided to try out installing my own Mastodon instance, a new version was rolled out. For what I could see in other instances where they were already playing with the RC, it brings some new features and security fixes, and well... why not?

In the previous article I explained all the way to get customized templates into your Remarkable 2. That is of a great use and our productivity really boosts, but our eyes also need some food. What if I tell you that the boring "starting", "rebooting", "powered off" and "sleeping" can also be customized? Cool right?

Here I will go through the process of customizing one of them as the example. I will assume that you went through the previous Remarkable 2 article so that we already have our Remarkable 2 as a host and it knows our computer as it has our authorisation keys.

This month is going to be my second year owning a Remarkable 2. Great device, I got convinced, became early adopter and since then it has been my companion in all meetings (which is kinda my daily life). Ask me if I'd recommend it to you, and I'd say that depends on how many notes do you take. It won't replace your tablet, but it will surely replace your notebook.

Just lately I started to look into the options for getting any kind of custom templates. I now tend to leave the sidebar open for quicker access to the drawing and navigation tools, and therefor my favourite Checklist template gets partly hidden below the buttons. Bad design, let's see if I can do anything here.

Just a week ago my head started again bumping with the idea of building myself a blog. Again. After so much time. I had some hard requirements, basically one: has to be a file based CMS, as I really want to move away from DBs. Long story short, I found Grav, I did some research around it, and got impressed by the features that they announce and... (dramatic pause) it's done in PHP + Twig + Markdown. I can't believe it, 2022 and something like this still exists? I have to play a bit with it.

The van (aka La Furgo) has already 2 years with us. Since then, we did around 30k kms and the inside evolved quite a lot. Zooming in into the electrics, La Furgo came with a second (lead) battery and a splitter, that was feeding a heater and that's it. As we could see, it took a night for the heater to leave the battery quite empty and the splitter needed quite a lot of kms to fill it back enough for a next night.
