Every time I work with Let's Encrypt I get blocked from the API because I produce too many failed requests.

One day I'll remember to use the --dry-run flag.

PSA: Get your Two Factor Auth backup codes!

A few month ago I wiped my phone because I got a replacement one. In the process I deleted Google Authenticator which managed all my 2FA. Since I wasn't logged in to every service I've permanently lost access to some services.

Always get backup codes!

I also learned that young people tent to omit the "¿", especially when texting.

I guess over time it will die out which is sad, because IMO "¿" and "¡" are quite unique language features.

I'm learning Spanish again and wondered why there's the upside down question mark (¿) and my wife helped me understand:

In Spanish there's no difference between a question and a statement.

For example

Tú hablas inglés.
¿Tú hablas inglés?

The first sentence means "You speak English", the second is "Do you speak English?".

When writing, "¿" introduces the next part of the sentence as question.

Last week I went to a local wildlife park called "Fasanerie". Instead of photographing animals I took some photos of mushrooms. 🍄

I'm a huge fan of little random facts in app UIs, for example PocketCast telling me how many skin cells I've shed in the time I've listened to podcasts.

A whole bunch of my recent photography is now up on - I don't really have a particular focus or direction at the moment, duck appreciation aside, but that's likely to change with fall coming in and the forest changing colour. There's a bit of a back catalogue on there too 😊

One of the reasons I love Wikipedia is articles like "List of superlative trees".

I absolutely love that people took the time to compile a list of extreme trees.

I just saw that an internal CLI tool I programmed is already two years old (and no longer used), which probably means it's also been around two years since I _really_ did Go programming!

No wonder I feel so out of touch with Go lately.

hey fedi, approximately when (local time) do you usually wake up? boosts 🆗

About a year ago I quit smoking and it was one of the best decision ever.

I've gained some weight sadly but I'm feeling better than ever on a day to day basis. If you're thinking about quitting, DO IT! It's really worth it.

Went for a bit of a "photo walk" through the city the other day and captured this tiny fly(?) on some sort of berry.
