Gitea Auto Update Script

I’m a gitea user for a long time now. Gitea is a nice application to build your own light and fast version of git hosting services like GitHub or GitLab. Gitea has one problem thought. It doesn’t update automatically. A issue for that is open nearly 2 years: https://github.com/go-gitea/gitea/issues/518#issuecomment-441742904 If there is one thing that I really hate, it is that a security sensible web application doesn’t update automatically. Because of that I have begun to write a update script for gitea before 4 months.

FreeBSD: nvidia-driver installation

After installing FreeBSD to my workstation, I wanted a desktop environment. I’ve installed gnome3 after reading the official documentation https://www.freebsd.org/doc/handbook/x11-wm.html. But nothing has worked. So, I installed the nvidia-driver for my two GPUs. The first documentation I’ve found is from “7.3-RELEASE”: https://docs.freebsd.org/doc/7.3-RELEASE/usr/share/doc/en/articles/compiz-fusion/nvidia-setup.html.

You should enter the following line:

APU2C4 - LED blinks 5 times …

I bought a APU2C4 Board (from the swiss company “PC Engines GmbH”) and multiple components because I want to build a custom pfSense router. I’ve ordered the device several weeks ago and haven’t used it until now. That’s because I made a few mistakes (which i want to write now): First Mistake: I used a power supply with 12V and 2A from china. Visible by: The LED on the back of the device blinks 5 times - then no more again.

First try of Jekyll

I’ve already using different blog systems like WordPress and Ghost, but this is my try to start a blog in english about personal and development topics with Jekyll. Maybe is the domain not my best choice (.de is the domain for germany), but as I haven’t any project on it, I will use it. I will be using GitHub as hosting service. That will have a few great side effects: you can download my whole blog via git clone, in the same way you could mirror my blog and if you want to notified when a new change happens, you could subscribe my Blog via the “Watch” Function of GitHub.
