(#) There's a surprising lack of Zeppelins these days.

2022-06-19 11:44:25 - 18 views

People can walk. Most people can swim, and most of those can dive (at least a
few meters). For us humans it's not hard to learn how to dive or sprint, and I'm
thankful for that. We have mastered almost every form of transportation there is
in the animal kingdom. But one is missing: Flying.

You've probably heard of TeamViewer before, and maybe even used it. Software
like this is called Remote Desktop Software, because it allows you to control
the desktop of a machine from a remote location, obviously.

(#) Share your mouse and keyboard accross machines using [Barrier](https://github.com/debauchee/barrier).

2022-04-22 11:04:45 - 28 views

Have you ever heard of a kvm-switch? KVM stands for _keyboard video mouse_, and
a kvm-switch is a piece of hardware that lets you share one set of mouse,
keyboard and screen between multiple computers. They are quite common in server
space, but they also tend to be expensive.

(#) Finally become a master of Regular Expressions with [regexlearn.com](https://regexlearn.com/).

2022-04-22 08:16:42 - 24 views

Regular Expressions are a mighty tool for word and text processing. They are not
just useful for programmers, but for anyone who wants a computer to recognize
patterns in strings. But a lot of people avoid them since they appear
complicated and have a steep learning curve.

(#) Blogging is (all about) fun.

2022-04-05 10:58:33 - 59 views

This is a blog. A place in the web where I can log stuff, a.k.a. weblog, or in
short blog. As I described in my
[very first post](https://lexlblog.de/?postid=1),
I was already playing with the idea of creating a blog of some sort for quite
a bit of time. Then,
[rubenerd](https://rubenerd.com/about/)
gave me the slight push I needed, and here we are. Thx by the way for
[mentioning](https://rubenerd.com/alexander-schneider-has-a-blog/)
that little story in your blog, Mr. Schade.

(#) Easy and clean backups with [Duplicati](https://www.duplicati.com/).

2022-04-02 14:14:45 - 148 views

Aaand it happened. Not for me luckily, but for my father. His PC suddenly died.
He does have a bunch of PCs, mostly laptops, and some are for work and others
for private stuff. But yeah, this specific PC was **old**. Very old. And it
contained basically all the financial data my dad had and has to handle.
**A lot** of **very important** data. And all was gone.

(#) Why don't we have a word for and/or?

2022-04-01 12:38:21 - 101 views

What differs us (humans) from animals? Well, you might be tempted to say "our
intelligence". But what is intelligence if not just a series/connection of
thoughts?

(#) Great Python books you can read online for free!

2022-03-31 12:25:12 - 56 views

I recently stumbled accross a book on amazon called *Automate the Boring Stuff
with Python*. As it turns out, that book was written by a guy called **Al
Sweigart**. And not only that, but Mr. Sweigart also has his own
[blog](https://alsweigart.com/). A great guy!

(#) Is `std::vector` any good?

2022-03-28 08:27:42 - 95 views

The [`std::vector<>`](https://en.cppreference.com/w/cpp/container/vector)
class is part of the C++ STL (standard library) and is
frequently used in basically any C++ program. If you look at some C++ code and
don't find any vectors, chances are the programmer is actually writing C code
and just doesn't know he/she has named it wrong (or doesn't care).
