This page is a collection of tips and tricks about things I have learned and found in the past. Since I am living in Germany, some of the tips may not be useful for everyone.
Services on the internet
Uberspace is a hosting provider. They offer a shared hosting experience that is a little bit more limited than a root server. However, their support is amazing and it’s a super good place to host for tinkerers and small projects. Highly recommended. Check out my Tutorials or the Uberlab for U7 for things you can do on your Uberspace!
Things I am using on Uberspace
- InvoicePlane: Simple invoicing software. Offers sending offers and invoices via email, too!
- Matomao: Analtics software to avoid Google.
- Redmine: Amazing project management solution.
- Syncthing: File synchronisation alternative.
Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo (macOS)
Affinity produces competitors to the popular Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator: Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo (you can also buy them directly from the App Store). These two programs are exceptional. You can do basically everything you can do with their Adobe counterparts, but they only cost 55 EUR each. No subscriptions, no recurring fees. The interface is polished and if you are an Adobe user you will be right at home. Quit Adobe today. Don’t let them milk you.
