Switching hosting from MidPhase to Uberspace

So, after another round of failed communications with my current web host MidPhase—I have been waiting for over a week to hear back from support—I have decided to move hosts.

I am now with Uberspace.

They had me interested for a long time now and I finally took the plunge and am loving it. Their business model is quite unique in that it is “pay what you want”. No strings attached. Same service for everyone. If you see the value and can afford it, you pay more. If not less. Down to €1/month.

Their interface is mostly SSH shell based, so one better be somewhat Terminal skilled.

Ha ha. Not touching the snake was not an option in the end. Both girls conquered their fear. And it seems both were proud of it.

Sadly the girls were too scared to touch a snake. :)

At the Landau Reptile Zoo with Willow and her friend. It’s nice and warm in here and lots of little critters to learn about.

The village is coming together for some vineyard singing.

#kindeyforum is over. Some interesting talks and some new acquaintances later we are heading home.

Today’s schedule. #kidneyforum

Pretty full. #kidneyforum

In Heidelberg beim Nierentransplantations-Forum. Es ist ganz gut besucht.

Getting into rowing. Dark Horse Rowing has a great intro series on YouTube. → Rowing Fundamentals

Instead of striking back at Iran, Israel could should actual strength by showing restraint.

Sigh. Why do jobs always come in twos? I accepted a job yesterday. And today a second job comes a-knocking.

A really stubborn bug

This year’s winter was really tough in our area. There is some bug going around our social circle that just won’t go away. Pretty much everyone is constantly sick and coughing. And once one gets better, another one starts coughing. I really do hope now that it is getting warm outside, things will start to get better.

I’m making ragu a la bolognese right now for tomorrow’s lasagna. The smell in the kitchen is mouthwatering right now.

What’s for dinner? For us it’s steak with buttered veggies and rice. 🍚🥩🥕

I sometimes forget I am talking into a void here.

Happy April‘s Fools! I didn‘t see any joke news so far. Maybe I was blind. What were your favorite April‘s fools jokes so far?

Happy Easter folks! 🥚🐰

Pizza tonight! The kids are starved from being in the great outdoors for two days learning to make campfires and all that encompasses including fire safety. 🍕🔥

Curious. I just updated iOS to 17.4 and am in the EU. Yet, I didn’t get any default browser prompt. Is that only the case when you have several browsers installed?

Just saw Dune - Part 2. Wow. The imagery was fantastic. Well told as well. Had me in tears at the end.

We did the Dracula escape room at Escape Rooms Mannheim today. It was great fun and we did beat it with 17 seconds to spare.

Oh jolly! The kids lost my Switch.

Currently reading: Dracula by Bram Stoker 📚 I found a really nice edition in the bookstore the other day. Every few pages there are inserts like letters, postcards, foldable maps or recipes.


Getting a iron infusion. Nothing like a little pickmeup on a Monday morning.
