  1. Right now... I'd say either Manjaro (Arch based) or Pop OS 20.04 (Ubuntu based - but with slightly better defaults in my opinion).

    Otherwise based on your prefered desktop environment or window manager.

    Ubuntu/Debian based systems have the huge benefit of .deb files which seems sometimes way easier in terms of installing necessary software. And LAMP stacks are way easier to setup.

  2. Moving slowly back from concepts to coding and started with some easy tasks like reading. There were a few interesting articles - unfortunately only a few web and dev related ones - but I don't want to miss the opportunity to share them with you. I will add/update this thread as I walk through each and every article. Please, feel free to add your current findings!

  3. Have to test this here... especially for those special occassions like 1.234,00 or 1,234.00 as I'm here on a mixed language/locale setup (DE/US) which is actually quite challenging for most online banking solutions that often deny any input.

    I'll report back as soon as I can.

  4. You might want to look into the user's profile and change the admin theme to the newest aka UIKIT.

    Never saw and old login screen in the last 6+ months.

    Just in addition to this... I don't think you can mix Reno and the new UIKIT theme. Either the one or the other.

  5. Oh my... I loved Textpattern so much back in the days. I used to use it for everything and it was a joy. Then... as projects became larger and more complex I found ProcessWire. I migrated all my sites over and it was pretty easy - at least in my case.

    First of all I migrated all the templates for sections and articles over. Rebuild the logic like posts per pages, custom article views, listings and those things. It took a while because ProcessWire was still new to me then. But after that it was pretty easy.

    I created custom templates to create CSV exports of all my content (maybe a total of 300 pages and 10 sections). Afterwards I imported everything from my CSV files, put everything in place, created lots of redirects and done.

    The one thing that was quite work intensive... image migration. I did it for each and every site manually. Wouldn't be a problem today but at that time I wasn't that good in handling files. 🙂 

    ProcessWire modules I used:

  6. Better face value (not as in Phil Collins album) than body count.

    Joking and fun aside (which we still shouldn't lose and very often need nowadays):

    Never feel ashamed to use a face mask or use anti-viral stuff on daily items.
    Just stay safe and minimize the risks. I personally don't wanna miss anyone of you here!

    Try pulling your mask bit lower 🙂

    No way! Eyes need protection as well. 😆

    Check this covid visualizer website out, interesting.
    Don't know if data is accurate but they claim that the data is from Worldometer's real-time updates,
    utilizing reliable sources from around the world. The website pulls new data every 2 minutes,
    refresh to see any changes.


    Looks like something I'd expect in a game like Doom or something like that. It looks so super scary to be honest. 😱

    My country ( Nigeria ) can't be accurate because there isn't enough testing centres thanks to corruption and bad leadership, those are cases they found, I am pretty confident that it would be much more than that. 

    65 cases (right now, 27/03/2020)... I wish that was true!


    Left the house today after almost 2 weeks for groceries... it was super weird outside. I saw in total 2 cars on the streets and 8 people in total in the supermarket and on the streets combined. As long as the birds are chirping I try to stay calm.

    Someone out there is preparing for a Netflix binge-watching session sitting on a throne of toilet rolls whilst getting fat on maltesers and presumably taking the paracetamol after they get a chocolate-induced headache I guess 🤷‍♂️

    Guilty for that one. Oh... wait... 😂

    Don't take meds unless necessary! You might want to know and feel if somethings is wrong with your body. Otherwise... Netflix-binging is fine. At least for good TV shows.


    Times are very strange right now. Done all my groceries through Amazon and other online shops just to stay away from other people. Actually... had to go to my car dealer to get some things fixed with my car but they are already closed until further notice. So... either online grocery shopping or whatever. WEIRD. TIMES.


    Keep and stay safe guys!

  10. Kind of... Love on first sight... to be honest. Love the straight and clean look of everything.

    And I love the speed of that site. My internet connection is quite lame but still.. everything was almost instantly present and usable.

    There are... some things I could call a "glitch" but... maybe... it's just me and I will take a closer look later on.

    Today, the images (incl. variants) occupy over 130 GB disk space.

    That's... WOW! My whole setup doesn't use that much of disk space. 😂


    Well done @horst, well done!
