This Archive consists of “uncategorized” items or content of the great myhowto.blog that do not fit into one of the existing categories.


Uncategorized means, that I either decided to not put a post or a page into a particular category or I simply forgot it. If you think, a particular post or page that is uncategorized fits into a category, then please do not hesitate to contact me. It actually helps me to keep this website clean and the content organised.

Typically, I would always categorise, but I am not a robot and sometimes I do mistakes. These errors could turn into an uncategorised post or page.

By no means an uncategorized page or post means that it is less important than others. Otherwise, as you can imagine, I would not have spend time to write it. If it is important to you is of course a different discussion. Not necessary something important to me is also important to you ;)
