With some trial and error, I managed to get down to 65 MB (from previously ~120 GB). Awesome.

Took me 6 hours to figure all that out but now I have a clean Git repo. Isn't that worth it? ;)

Ok, from 25 GB down to 3.75 GB. Now trying files above 0.5 MB.

I'm impressed by "BFG Repo-Cleaner"" rtyley.github.io/bfg-repo-clea! From 117 GB I was able to reduce to 25 GB in the first run only deleting files above 100 MB using this command:

$ java -jar bfg-1.13.0.jar --strip-blobs-bigger-than 100M .git

Now, I'm letting another round run. This time with files bigger than 1M:

$ java -jar bfg-1.13.0.jar --strip-blobs-bigger-than 1M .git

Because essentially, I only want to have code files and markdown files being git-ed.

And there's a less "scary" alternative to using "filter-branch". it's called "BFG Repo-Cleaner" rtyley.github.io/bfg-repo-clea - found via stackoverflow.com/a/17890278/8

Trying that now because going through all files of the last 6 months is tedious work (insane).

Let's see how that works.

Probably doing the nerdiest thing in my life. I'm removing or purging files (one by one) from a Git repository that had grown beyond 100 GB without me noticing and eating lots of space.

Using the filter-branch command (via stackoverflow.com/a/6404368/86):

git filter-branch --index-filter "git rm -rf -f --cached --ignore-unmatch --MYPATHTOFILE" HEAD


If some of the stuff resonates with you, that’s great. If not, I don’t mind. I’ll continue anyway just as a Rambo does, as I said in stolenvoice.tv/25

Don’t watch stolenvoice tv if you want polished. Watch it if you want raw, real, true stuff. And if you don’t watch, do not.

Whatever your choice is, I appreciate you.

Get the review by my holy quadruple Frank, Hank, Jimmy and Alex. Here’s their point of view.

I don’t want people to watch it. I honestly don’t care about views, subscribers but I don’t mind if there are. What I’m doing here is documenting my creator’s journey by sharing it publicly so that I can keep myself accountable on what I’m doing, saying (and not doing and saying) and having a lasting public diary that I can refer to in the future if I want to.

This is not a story to consume but raw food that is hard to digest.

Maybe there’s been confusion about the purpose of stolenvoice tv, my weekly show-up show and „life update“. In the show, I’m documenting my journey as a voice actor, artist, creative and entrepreneur.

stolenvoice tv is not a format where I’m telling a cohesive story that you can easily consume before going to bed. stolenvoice tv is more like a raw potato, a crunchy carrot or a fresh beetroot: raw, hard to digest, by design.

My voiceover journey started 333 days ago. This is my path to become an actor, so I don’t regret that I haven’t tried pursuing it!



Borders are not real.

They're nothing more than lines drawn by people. Arbitrary. Imaginary.

Nationalism and patriotism make no sense. This planet belongs to all of us. And us to it.

Awesome! Dutch „De Correspondent“ goes English (USA) - finally I’ll be able to understand what they’re writing about ;)

Crowdfunding is happening now: thecorrespondent.com/

Hey @garrett, not sure you're aware of this already, but since you are a gamer there's a social platform (maybe) coming up for gamers, called: GameCritter.

They're running a crowdfunding campaign kickstarter.com/projects/gamec

They wanna integrate a crowdfunding function to directly support new games, and they say:

"…we don't want to focus this platform on selling. We want this to be a comfortable environment for gamers where they don't feel that they're flustered with ads."

Early #FF but follow my friend @naii and check out his site FreeWriteCamp.org he is doing good stuff and is a very kind person.

Hey @staff, just wanted to let you know that I expressed my alignment with your ideas at "Approaching Utopia" at my project freewritecamp.org, see screenshot :)

At freewritecamp.org, I have a very simple application process for students.

I ask „What’s your autobiography?“ and you reply with an email and an up to 750 words story that defines your life best.

Starting today, you can join the camp by writing your story freewritecamp.org/join/. You’re only writing about yourself. That’s it.

I haven’t seen an easier way to become part of an educational program with the quality that freewritecamp.org is aiming for :)

Slightly knocked me off my feet: David is probably not the underdog as portrayed in „David & Goliath“ npr.org/2013/11/15/243294593/w.

Translated to modern times, David is a nimble, agile start-up whereas Goliath is the big company that is less flexible.

It’s not an unfair fight of a heroic shepherd vs. the unbeatable giant, it’s about new + fresh versus established + slowly moving.

Of course, Frank, Hank and Jimmy, and yours truly will have their say and review their week.

Did you know about the 3-2-1 backup strategy? Well, now I do and I made the first steps towards it. I wrote down my backup, storage and sync system. Not exactly boring but also not my core topic. You can pay a lot of money for backing up your data. That’s for sure.

There’s more that happened this week, like a new production and a language surprise! Watch this week’s episode or read it all on stolenvoice.tv/25.

Uff, what a „marbled“ week. Far from ideal but hey that’s alright.

I stopped my 90 days of laser focus challenge at day 45. That was a sad but necessary step. Public accountability helped me in the beginning but then it became something I didn’t want to do anymore. It drowned me instead of fueling me. So, I went cold-turkey and quit.

My voiceover journey started 324 days ago. This is my path to become an actor, so I don’t regret that I haven’t tried pursuing it!
