Part 2 of my #introduction:
In my spare time I:
- Collect (and listen to) #music , preferably #vinyl. Some of my favorite genres are #drumnbass #hiphop #metal #dubstep etc.
- I like to visit #concerts and #festivals
- I play #pool (sometimes #snooker)
- Install all sorts of #selfhosted tools, like mastodon.world / fediland.nl (Misskey)/ fotofed.nl (Pixelfed) / h-y-p-e-r.space (Matrix)
- Watch tv-shows
- Listen to books / podcasts
2/2 (I might look into extending the max post size here..)
I am a father of 2, husband of 1. I live in The Netherlands.
Question. I have moved away from Google Calendar, I now use the calendar in my Nextcloud instance. It syncs nicely to Thunderbird.
But the Tasks in Nextcloud have 1 big issue: no recurring tasks. And when I create a recurring task in Thunderbird, Nextcloud gets confused.
I have used Vikunja, which is very nice, but that also has an issue: it doesn't sync with Thunderbird (or almost any app, the caldav is broken..)
So, what self-hosted task manager can I try next?

Linux life hack: say you have a page open in Firefox on your Linux machine and you want to view it on your phone (and you don’t have some fancy integration between the two)…
Instead of typing in the URL, get the FxQRL extension that shows you a QR code of the current tab’s URL and aim your phone’s camera at it.
If you enjoy the Bitcoin, Explained podcast, you may want to check out my new book! It covers softfork activation mechanisms, what's cool about SegWit and Taproot, how nodes bootstrap to the network and find their peers, what an address really is, how AssumeUTXO can make initial block download suck less, how UtreeXO could compress the entire UTXO set into a kilobyte of merkle forest, how Guix makes reproduceable builds great again, and more.
