It's #introduction time πŸŽ‰

Hi fediverse, my name is Tobias - I'm a #programmer (ABAP@work, web-dev@home) and adult fan of #Lego (aka #AFOL). I'm interested in #opensource software and building stuff. My latest project is and I love it so far 😊

When I'm away from keyboard and Lego bricks (never?), I like #hiking, #reading and #photography. Listening to #music is a basic need of mine - and #singing along is obligatory.

Below some of my favorite Lego creations:

Woohooo, I got my own mastodon instance! Details will follow as soon as I had a look around and setup stuff and ... woohooo! πŸ˜‚ πŸ‘»

I ordered an instance on now - that's how I came across this πŸ˜‚

A possibly related phenomenon is called crown shyness – certain species of trees will very politely avoid overshadowing each other in a forest canopy, leaving gaps between each others' branches.

Mostly trees of the same species will do this, but different species of tree have been observed doing this too.

Again, no one's entirely sure how the trees do this, and some botanists are probably arguing about it somewhere right now.

Don't feel bad or ashamed if you spend your week-end sleeping, resting.

It's *it's purpose*.

And in itself, resting is **not** doing nothing.

It's taking care of yourself, and allowing to gather back some energy. Some time to yourself.

Resting *is* doing something, for you. And it's a good thing to do sometimes.

>> Instead of freaking out about how β€˜small’ Gumroad actually is (like I thought they would), our creators have grown more loyal. It feels like we’re all in this together, trying to do earn a living doing what we love.

Soon, we will also open-source the whole product, WordPress-style. Anyone will be able to deploy their own version of Gumroad, make the changes they want, and sell the content they want, without us being the middle-man. <<

Hmm, still not working - now the service aborts because of missing "Hex" and asking "Shall I install Hex?" ... I already installed it, as described in the wiki:

First try failed because I used an outdated tutorial ... and because I made a wrong DNS entry, but I noticed that during second try. πŸ˜‚

On second try, certbot for LetsEncrypt certificate didn't work without nginx ... which didn't work without ssl ...

.. gonna have to adapt the nginx config somehow I guess, but no clue how exactly...

I give it a last try for today currently

I'm curious how far I'll get - I impulsively started setting up a server and installing it. πŸ˜„
