+### 2021-09-07 Debian Buster & motion
+Our survaillance cam (to have a look at the dogs while we are away) was still running Debian Buster, so i did the upgrade to Debian Bullseye this morning. After that motion was not running anymore when started using the systemd unit.
+I took me a while until i realized that Bullseye switched to a systemd unit for motion and you need to DISABLE the daemon mode in motion config.
### 2021-08-27 one step back
I've switched to "PHP Server Monitor" a while back for monitoring my public services. While this was working quite well and included a public status page, it was a bit overkill and i needed to rent additional hosting for it. I now moved back to good ol' monit for monitoring. I have no need for a public status page at all, getting an alert when something goes down is enough for my use case.

+### 2021-10-12 Smartphones vs real cameras
+=> gemini://gemini.circumlunar.space/~solderpunk/gemlog/smartphones-vs-real-cameras.gmi Re: Solderpunk: Smartphones vs real cameras
+For me, solderpunk completely hit the point in why using a "real" camera for taking photos is a completely different feeling than using a smartphone: A tool that is dedicated for taking photos vs a tool that is dedicated for carrying around and which tries to accomplish a vast variety of tasks.
+The imersion a camera with a dedicated viewfinder can create leads to a hugely different approach on taking photos and leads to different results than the "point and click" style of smartphones.
+Just give it a try - although you'll probably need to get familiar with the basic physical concepts of photography in the first place, the ones that usually some sort software in your phone tries to take care of.

I've been in this situation a few months ago, a friend of me needed to drop a file of some gigs to me. We tried different things like my private nextcloud instance, but eventually failed with all the "fancy" approaches. In the end we set up a VPN connection between our homes and i fired up a simple ftp server. This was done in about 2 minutens with a short phone call. This would have been the fastest and most reliable way from the beginning.

I'll decided to give the Matias Ergo Pro a try as it seems to be quite flexible in the setup. I'm typing this shortlog entry on this keyboard and although i've only used it for a few minutes it feels like it can become my daily driver. The position of the right ctrl key seems a bit awkward tough, it's placed left of the n key...
There are some special keys like single keys for cut, copy, paste and some media functions as well which seems to work out of the box with linux. This is a big pro. We'll see how the next days with go.
