Playing with Huginn: "Your agents are standing by!"

"Huginn is a system for building agents and performing automated tasks online." Here's how I found it, made a personal newsletter (and some other stuff) with it. Next time: Docker setup....

Leaving Evernote for Joplin

I have been looking for an Evernote replacement for the longest time. It's a nice tool, but it has some features and limitations that irritated me: no markdown support (the HTML in the editor often got messy), no end-to-end encryption or control over my data, and a restrictive device limit and online-only requirement in the free version.

(And it took forever to find time to do that.) So after I had my app re-written with .NET Core 2[1] MVC, using Vue, Bulma, TypeScript and some arcane Webpack stuff that...
