This morning I booted my work laptop, only to be greeted by the error mentioned in the title.
Being thrown into an emergency shell is not my prefered way to start my work day, but it is what it is and being a Linux user, I at least have tools ready to use to tackle such a problem.
Most of the time I am working on my desk, using my stationary keyboard. But once in a while, and especially during summer time, I like to take my work laptop and sit outside, enjoying the weather while doing some work.
In these moments, the internal keyboard of my Thinkpad P14s drove me nuts. Its Meta and left Alt keys are swapped compared to the keyboard on my desk, which often resulted in a small pause to think about which key to use if I wanted to change to another window, skip a single word during writing etc.
As a frontend developer, the browser devtools are an essential tool working on websites and webapps. For me they are basically always open in every browser I am developing and testing.
One thing which came to my mind recently was if it is possible to open the devtools automatically on opening up a browser window or tab. A thought so obvious that it is nearly embarassing, but maybe something which did not came to me earlier since my muscle memory just kicks in every day doing the job.
The time had come for me to finally invest in some vacuum robot again. I was eyeing with that idea for a while now, but hesitated until recently because basically all current robots require some cloud connection for even the most simple tasks like locally starting a cleaning process. In addition I wanted something which I can integrate into my openHAB setup which made choosing one of the available
options nearly impossible.
After thinking about it for quiet some time I decided that now the time has come again to start a blog. The reason for it is quiet simple: I need a way for me to save my notes and thoughts about things I learn and which interest me so I can easily reference back to them from time to time.
