I'm currently switching from GNUcash to a plaintext accounting software. I'm using beancount, beancount-mode for emacs and the fava frontend. Right now I'm experimenting and learning how to use the beancount features using my last years data. It's looking promising and I can't wait to use the python API of beancount to create custom reports.
Starting the year making up a workflow for self-printed photo zines. Just got the first test run of a set of printed sheets. I'm using FOSS software only for device calibration, layout and impositioning. Only the printer software is proprietary. Unfortunately high quality printing under Linux is not yet possible with free software.
Emacs org-mode, orgparse, Jinja2 and Latex are my tools of choice to implement an intuitive text-based ERP system for my small company. Feeding data from org files to Latex templates using orgparse and the Jinja template system is working great.
My Jekyll Homepage https://www.mertl-research.at/ is available in two languages. I have written a Jekyll Plugin which allows the handling of multiple languages. I have tried the jekyll-multiple-languages-plugin first, but it contained too many monkey patches and changes of core classes. So I have written a custom plugin that uses Jekyll Hooks only.
There is no documentation yet, but you can take a look at the code on Github.
The Grove DIY – An overgrown pub carpark transformed during lockdown
The Viennese high fog has settled, so uniform light is guaranteed. I took this opportunity to take photos from St.Marx DIY, which has grown quite a lot this year. Just started the structure from motion workflow. Let's see if I have captured all important details, or if I have to revisit the site to fill in some gaps.

Migrated my Jekyll site to the Foundation 6 Framework using the new XY-Grid. No problems, it was a pleasure. Integrated a Vue/Vuex app using leaflet also worked fine.

Everyone is streaming...I'm in. I have created m-aar Radio at https://www.mertl-research.at/maar_radio/ which currently streams the sonification of seismic data recorded on a Greenland glacier. 184 days from May to October 2012 resulting in 21 hours and 28 minutes of streaming audio. Tune in and drift into the great white nothing.....
Working on a GPS disciplined clock signal for using BeagleBone Black PRUs in my home-office. I'm currently testing the timing performance. The fastest time to set an output GPIO high in response to an input GPS PPS signal is ca. 35 ns using Assembly code.
I didn't code in Assembly for ages, but working directly with all the hardware registers and knowing what every clock cycle does is somehow beautiful.
The earthquake today at 05:24 UTC with an epicenter near #Zagreb and a magnitude of ML = 5.4 (ZAMG) has been detected by the MSS network in the Vienna Basin and marked as an event which might have been felt in a wide area.
The aftershock at 06:01 UTC with a magnitude ML = 4.9 (ZAMG) has been detected as well.
Visit https://www.mertl-research.at/mss-nrt-map/ to get near real-time information about the seismicity in the southern Vienna Basin.
