Shin Lim released the morphing card trick he used in the AGT finale. It is $159 and you get apparently 1 single card. 😮 I hope it doesn’t break fast. www.shinlimmagic.com/shop/kada…

All-Access rockrolls me. I click on the „Wake up before you go go“-morning-playlist and the first song is this

Plesk: when the group psacln can write into your document root, it will put in there all “missing” template files when you change any settings of the domain. Oh and Plesk isn’t considering this as a bug because that group shouldn’t be able to write in there anyways m)

Wordpress 5.0, block editor and nginx

I updated yesterday to Wordpress 5.0 and wanted to test the new editor. Unfortunately it didn't work like the beta (Gutenberg)-version before. After opening a github-issue and more googling today, I found the solution. The culprit was nginx and that it doesn't work with the REST-API from Wordpress with the configuration as it was documented in the past. Thus I had to change it and Stack Overflow saved the day again.

Here is what I did:


       location / {
        try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php;


       location / {
        try_files $uri $uri/ /index.php$is_args$args;

and add

   location ~ ^/wp-json/ {
    # if permalinks not enabled
    rewrite ^/wp-json/(.*?)$ /?rest_route=/$1 last;

So now I have only to find a way that h-cards work with twenty nineteen…

Today’s horror sighting: PHP 5.2.17 in production use on public websites. Its EOL-date was ca. 8 years ago…

I hate Plesk

Oh, I just watched a gimmick presentation on YouTube, and noticed that at one step he just used a criss cross force because he messed up the trick. I am getting better. But I need to train routines and do some stuff in front of audiences #magic

Inzwischen habe ich Post vom Innenministerium bekommen. Für die Returning From Germany-Kampagne wurden dieses Jahr 500.000€ zur Verfügung gestellt.

I found this on reddit about a group of pathfinder-players. It is actually pretty awesome: “Help my players are drug dealers” https://reddit.com/r/rpg/comments/9xyg8d/help_my_player_are_drug_dealers/

I noticed that for quite some time I didn’t use any micro-blogging site and just the micro.blog-client to post. Reddit keeps me covered for my net-entertainment currently and home and the popular feed refresh rarely enough that I „need“ to use it far less than twitter or mastodon

My three-way-mirror arrived and exercising card magic changed immediately because I see how dirty I am all the time and getting clean by watching 3 angles is really hard.
