Over night I had an ant invasion, and I'm on the 14th floor of a big building, no idea where they were coming from. Anyway, I cut of their entrance with dishwasher and started smiting all of them inside. I didn't distinguish between the good or the bad ones, I killed them all. Then I remembered https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P_p6WI4V8N8

This is sadly very true. Just yesterday I had the Google Home app open and it suggested me to switch on to show pictures of specific people which are on my phone also on the TV via the Chromecast. I clicked one button and we had a nice evening watching a slideshow and talking about those pictures.
Theoretically I would be able to do that on my own devices too. I have all my pictures backed...
Unify is a bit rediciolous when it comes to accessing the hardware via their cloud. I have three of their devices and need to access each of them via a different landing page, which is prepared to show all of them:
And that even though I run the same software on a Raspberry Pi for the Access Point and on the Cloud Key...
I wish the "Do Not Disturb" button in GNOME would also supress the bleep sound in Element when a notification comes in. Sometimes I'm in a meeting and people start writing there and it does beep, beep, Beep, BEEEP, BEEEEEEP all the time. Closing the application doesn't help, it keeps running in the background and beeping. I'd need to 'kill' it. Also switching 'Do Not Disturb' back after an hour would be nice too, I always forget to do it after the meeting.
After some gentle encouraging from the community, I took a bit of time to set up a proper blog for TILvids. You can access it at https://blog.tilvids.com TBD exactly what I'll post here; certainly the monthly updates will live there now (and I'll try to update /r/tilvids as a reminder when I post), but perhaps some other off-the-cuff updates can go there as well. If you have other thoughts about what you'd like to see, feel free to leave a comment!

Because I don't have a real home now and am moving a lot and living in hotels and AirBnBs, I don't have the possibility to have my normal instruments with me like my bass, my saxophone or my guitar. So for now I'm using my girlfriends ukulele to make music and I'm learning some chords. I thought I should learn at least one full song so I can sing and play it:
I live in Sweden, brew beer, dry meat, play metal and develop games and other software. I also am a hobby photographer.
