Static site generators like Hugo, Jekyll or Nuxt are awesome. They provide way faster delivery of your contents to your customers than any PHP solution like WordPress.

Unfortunately you have to create the Markdown files for your content yourself, but because every single post has a filename, title, date and often tags as well as a status for draft, I created a simple tool which takes care of doing exactly that.

Just enter np The Title of your blog post and np will create a file inside the content/post directory with your Title, date, draft status (default: true) and tags which are simply the words in your title.

You can find the project on GitLab: https://gitlab.com/cmiksche/np

I stake a Cryptocurrency based of Peercoin on a Server since years. Multiple months ago this stopped because of the following error:

Coind: kernel.cpp:372: unsigned int GetStakeModifierChecksum(const CBlockIndex*): Assertion `pindex->pprev || pindex->GetBlockHash() == (!fTestNet ? hashGenesisBlock : hashGenesisBlockTestNet)' failed.

This Error often comes when your Blockchain is corrupted. The cause of my problem was an unexpected downtime.

To fix this:

  1. Stop the Daemon
  2. Backup the Folder of the Coin
  3. Delete everything except wallet.dat, peers.dat and *.conf
  4. Start the Daemon again (/path/to/coin/src/Coind -daemon -datadir=/path/to/coin/folder/)

I also published a German blog post about compiling AltCoins.
