The rise of the cryptocurrencies

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've noticed that the cryptocurrencies are on the rise again. Bitcoin recently came close to its all time high. For those of you who think they've missed the crypto train, I have one suggestion: do some research into staking. You no longer need a powerful computer or ASIC to mine cryptocurrencies.

Thunderbird Lightning and multiple CalDAV accounts on the same server

While configuring my CalDAV accounts in Thunderbird on my new laptop, I ran into an issue. I have a few CalDAV accounts that are all on the same Zimbra server. Thunderbird only requested a login and password for the first account I added. It tried to open the next account I added with the credentials that were already stored for the first account, and that failed.

Website performance issues

If you recently visited my website (let's say in the last two or three days), you might have noticed some performance issues. It seems I didn't pay that much attention to the MySQL binary logging configuration, when I enabled this feature so that I could do point-in-time recovery in case something goes wrong.

In /etc/mysql/my.cnf, I had these options related to binlogging:

[mysqld]
log_bin = /var/log/mysql/mysql-bin.log
expire_logs_days = 10
max_binlog_size = 100M

Drupal migration

As you might have already noticed, I recently migrated my blog from WordPress to Drupal.

I used the WP2Drupal to import all WordPress posts from my old blog into my new Drupal-based website. It worked pretty good, except for some images that were missing, and some stuff showed up that didn't belong in posts, like Captcha text. After enabling some modules, I manually added the missing images, and while at it, I also removed text that got lost ;-)
