With all the new Mastodon users, it’s maybe time I wrote my (a.k.a. )

I am a father of 2, husband of 1. I live in The Netherlands.

Oh too bad, the Limp Bizkit concert is *again* postponed, this time because of Fred Durst's health. I wish him all the best.

Okay so today will be 35 C. And tomorrow 40. I'll stay inside working in my office.. maybe jump into the pool during 'coffee breaks'. I love the summer. 🌞 🔆 😎

In our first year with solarpanels, this month of June set the record with 3.46 MWh power. 12.8 MWh so far this year. We hoped for an average of 18 MWh per year, looks like this year we’ll do much better than that. (Oh and I enjoyed the sun as well 😀)

Especially annoying because we pay this company for support. Asking stupid questions and giving even more stupid answers I can do myself, don't need them for that...

Pfff.. submitted a ticket to support... and then having to explain myself over and over to someone who doesn't understand..
This has been the same for all tickets submitted to this company so far.. escalating again..

How's your day been so far?

Receiving multiple mails from an app unknown to me.

-me: I have never registered on your app. Probably someone else used my mailaddress. Can you please remove my mailaddress from your system?
- them: can imagine how you really feel about this issue and rest assured I will do my best to assist.
However, you can do this to change your email to avoid this happening again, Ruud:
In your profile, you can edit:

I love 90’s hiphop!

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?

Had this album on cd since it was released 25 years ago. Now I also have it on
