Just some quick Notes, too less for a Post but too much to not write it down somewhere.


2021-03-21: Use freenode Nickname with matrix.org Client and IRC Bridge

It's quite convenient to use IRC via matrix.org Bridge but lot of freenode Channel require a registered nick to join. I have a registered nick, just had to figure out how to use it through the IRC Bridge. I found what i needed in this gist (Archive: [1], [2]) as well this issue comment (Archive: [1], [2]).

Summary: Start direct Chat with @appservice-irc:matrix.org, Store your credentials !storepass <nick>:<password>, Authenticate !nick <nick>


2021-03-13: Rotate a PDF Counterclockwise via Linux commandline

Sometimes even easy things can be challenging, but nothing a Search Engine can't help to find: pdftk in.pdf cat 1-endwest output out.pdf - Source (Archive: [1], [2])


2021-03-04: Nice improvement how Translations show up in Pelican

I found a very nice example, how to enhance the output of links to translated pages in Pelican, in the Blog from Bernhard Scheirle (Archive: [1], [2]).

By default, Pelican just shows the two letter Country Code. Was not thinking about how easy it is to add a custom Jinja Filter, impressive, of course I had to change my theme right away :)
