This is the last post to be crossposted to twitter. You can find all the things to stay in contact on omg.muhh.lol.

The main place is and will be the blog byzero.de. Just put @muhh@byzero.de into your mastodon thing.

Thanks for all the fish! Take care.


🤕 Meh again.


doom scrolling has taken on a whole new meaning for me.

I still like watching things burn like hell.


Rearranged and cleaned up, now that the fabulous cube has taken over.

🤢 meh.


Finally! It worked! What an odyssey to get that hardware working. NB: right now this will be my last PC build ever. There are just too good ready made Linux PCs around.

Well, not with this fabulous case.

spare AMD M4 3xxx/4xxx CPU anyone?

If you watched my livestream yesterday or today, you might have seen me building my new desktop PC. A very nice one without fans, without any moving parts actually.

I wanted a quite simple one, no need for a dedicated graphics card, so I went with an AMD CPU with integrated GPU. A compatible board is the Asrock Phantom thing with B550 chipset.

Thing is, only a mildly current BIOS supports these CPUs with integrated graphics chip. And the one I bought has an old BIOS revision. Of course.

So, does anyone of you - best from Germany/EU to avoid anything with customs - have an AMD CPU M4 socket, like 3xxx or 4xxx, at hand to borrow or sell it to me? Just needs to be on the supported CPU list where “Validated BIOS” is either P1.20 or All.

I’m already looking at ebay-kleinanzeigen.de…


I’m having way too much fun procrastinating on micro.blog and social.lol right now.

This has to stop now. I need to get some copyediting done and work some more.

I probably should setup a coworking livestream.


live.hackr : Das Einhorn

macht was ihr wollt, es gibt gute gründe für alles, aber lasst euch nicht den spaß von einer dumpfbacke verderben.

Es ist eigentlich zum heulen, aber @hackr hat halt recht. Deswegen bin ich der Leute wegen im Fediverse und im OMG.LOL Umfeld so gut aufgehoben.

Und der andere Markus wird weiter das soziale Objekt den Berg hinauf rollen. Bitte hör auch nicht auf damit. Vielleicht wird’s ja irgendwann zum Phönix. Vielleicht auch irgendwo anders als bei Twitter. Wer weiss.

Ich hab jedenfalls insgeheim viel zu viel Spaß daran, Sachen brennen zu sehen. Auch wenn’s schon sehr schmerzt.


Because you can’t, you won’t, and you don’t stop

Whenever I can’t think of a something where the word of the day doesn’t relate to anything happening right now, I’ll whip something up from my past.

And since “Licensed to ill” was before my active music listening time, I picked “Sure shot” from “Ill communication” by one of my all time favorites Beastie Boys.

Just because I can.

🛋️ Reading my backlog on micro.blog after a very long weekend where I’ve been mostly away from the internets. Besides my feedreader, it’s the only place where I enjoy being a completionist. I’m doing my best not doing that on other places.
Sorry social.lol.

One of the niceties of micro.blog is the regular community challenges. I have tried my hand at a few, especially photo challenges, but have only been successful once.

So this month, I need to figure out some habits to complete Microblogvember 2022.


More Fediaccounts, less cross-posting

I just disabled cross-posting everything from this blog to my mastodon account.

The blog is read- and commentable at @muhh@byzero.de from the Fediverse and since the ActivityPub udpates to micro.blog improved many things, I’m trying to declutter this a bit.

I’ll still be boosting everything on @muhh@social.lol, which pushes it to my twitter.

And “everything” being this blog, the new livestream powered by Owncast and my pixelfed test account.

So many nice things.


I really like where small tech is going with their small-web tech stuff. Aral did a nice job explaining the current state and where they’re going with kitten in the current episode of “small is beautiful”.

I have an idea how I’m going to take it for a test drive pretty soon.


🤓 catching up on the weekend on micro.blog and social.lol


Ohai Würzburg!


📺 watching @adam fixing my issues live on twitch.tv/neatnik. Well, at least the ones with omg.lol.


☎ reconfiguring another domain for some nice omg.lol thing.


arc is really growing on me.

I’m really missing it on Linux. qutebrowser is there for me.


Create link rel-me tags on micro.blog

Manton published a meta tags plugin for micro.blog the other day. It allows you to insert <meta> tags in your HTML output any micro.blog without fiddling around in custom themes. (Which I really want to do soon, but still.)

Looking at the docs for it I noticed that it allows to place arbitray HTML into the <head> section, not only meta!
Since I wanted to properly link all my new sites and domains to verify that they belong to me (and allow for IndieAuth) I tried to use this to insert the appropriate links into my blog.

To set this up, you can either add <a href="..." /> into the footer or someplace else. This clutters up the site though which I wanted to to use <link rel="me" href="..." /> instead.

And volia, it worked instantly.

I added all the relevant links into the plain form using the syntax <link rel="me" href="$LINK" />, adapted my profile on social.lol and now omg.muhh.lol is a verified link over there.

The hardest part was to remove the old links to github, twitter and instagram which showed up and didn’t know where to turn them off. They are deeply hidden in account - apps settings below the the app tokens . I couldn’t find it myself, but had to search for it, resulting in a post in the help forums.

Now I can define all the links I want to use, especially these fine new ones under muhh.lol , that I use to map to the even finer omg.lol services I enjoy to use.


⌨ Finally back into some chef cookbook development. Has been too long again.
