Hi, im Laria

Yet another relaunch

( Posted: 2016-07-29 22:41:41 Tags: , , )

w00t! The blog was relaunched! Again! This is probably the 6th iteration or something like that :).

So, welcome back! New URL, new blog software. Last time it was a wonderful patchwork of CGI shell and awk scripts running under Apache. It was super cool, super nerdy and super impossible to fill with content from within the browser. If I wanted to post new stuff, I needed to edit files on my computer and update the blog by running make. Was quite handy for some mass edit actions but made it impossible to edit the blog from my smartphone, which became more and more important to me.

Am 24. Januar findet in Hamburg eine Demo der "besorgten Eltern" gegen die neuen Bildungspläne macher Bundesländer statt. In diesen Bildungsplänen geht es darum, dass LGBTQ*-Themen in den Unterricht einfließen. Die "besorgten Eltern" warnen dabei vor einer angeblichen "Frühsexualisierung der Kinder".

Das Aktionsbündnis "Vielfalt statt Einfalt" stellt sich dagegen und hat am gleichen Tag eine Gegenkundgebung um 11:00 auf dem Hansaplatz organisiert.

I smell fabulous :3.

So, I went to the Lush store after work (I freaking love Lush :3). I wanted to buy a perfume for me. So the assistant showed me all their perfumes, because I wasn't really sure, what I wanted. And they all smelled so, so great! Really hard to decide on one (And I now smell like a mixture of all their perfumes :D).

I picked their Sun perfume, it smells like freshly made orange juice. It's so awesome :).

I might sooner or later also buy their Vanillary perfume, which was also so very good.

dritte Option | Für einen dritten Geschlechtseintrag

Die Kampagne "dritte Option" setzt sich für eine weitere Option neben männlich/weiblich bei Geschlechtsangaben auf offiziellen Dokumenten in Deutschland ein. Die Kampagne hat vor dem Amtsgericht Hannover leider verloren, will aber in die nächste Instanz gehen. Ich finde das eine unterstützenswerte Kampagne, es ist längst überfällig, das Menschen, die nicht in das binäre Geschlechtersystem passen, gleich behandelt werden. Eine dritte Option wäre meiner Meinung nach ein erster wichtiger Schritt dahin.

twitter-to-atom

I've written a small tool that generates an Atom-Feed from a Twitter-Account. All recent (re-)tweets of an account get transfromed into an atom feed. I don't really use my twitter account for posting and want to close it. But there were some people I couldn't get upates from other platforms than twitter, so I've written this tool.

Instead of using twitter's API, it just scrapes the HTML. This has the advantage that I don't need an API key. I don't think twitter would like to see such a program anyway, so they might refuse to give me a key. Of course this also means that I will have to update the tool from time to time, if they decide to change the markup.
