Stuff

On M$ Windows

posted on Monday, October 26, 2020

I didn’t use Windows for over 11 years now. And I did not miss them. But with a declining quality of MacBooks and MacOS (OSX) I’ve been thinking about what my next step should be.


Learning Go: Simple bookmark manager

posted on Sunday, October 18, 2020

I've started learning Golang so I can stop shipping hundreds of MBs worth of Docker images when deploying my personal projects. So far it's been going great, and I'm finding Go very intuitive and easy to work.


On Willows

posted on Friday, October 16, 2020

I have a new hobby - or better yet I've had it for a while now but didn't realise. I tend to focus on objects around me and then look up "lore" about it. I've never documented it so this is kind of an experiment on it. When watching a Netflix show The Haunting of Bly Manor (which I would skip if I were you, or you were me???) all actors sang this song about a Willow Wally. So it got me googling and finding different things in human culture. This is by no means a definitive Willow documentation - just the stuff that I found in a week. Enjoy!


Homelab

posted on Tuesday, July 28, 2020

Even from highschool I always had a homelab. I can, and I will, pin point that exact thing as a most useful learning material to date for me. I've started with Windows Server where I was running my own terminal services and everything just started from there.


undefined vs. null

posted on Monday, July 20, 2020

This is a very interesting today I learned about JavaScript - when you should return undefined and when null?


Tools I use rev.2

posted on Tuesday, June 30, 2020

Since my last post, a lot has changed. If you know me you'll also know that I switch things up every so often so this is not an exception. I've listed stuff that I use daily for either my work or my personal life.


DNS Implemenation in JS

posted on Friday, April 24, 2020

When I first started with JavaScript I made my own DNS server in node. This was a long time ago and unfortunatly that code is now lost (for better or for worse). I needed a few hours to wind down from work and I rememberd having fun doing this all these years ago.


Yeastar TG100 and Asterisk

posted on Monday, April 13, 2020

I recently got into VoIP and phones. After a really quick setup of a very glorified home intercom setup, I wanted to make outbound calls and receive incoming calls from outside the safe haven of my LAN. I looked online for either free or cheap SIP trunks and either could not found any that I could afford or ones with a local phone number. Then I found out about Yeastar TG100 - a GSM gateway.


Next.js with Passenger and Nginx

posted on Tuesday, March 31, 2020

We couldn't figure out how to run next.js on Passenger with Nginx. The issue we had was very simple but seemingly unfixable.


VMware ESXi on Intel NUC7i5BNH

posted on Thursday, January 9, 2020

How to setup ESXi on Intel NUC7i5BNH - from creating a USB to booting.


Wireguard server

posted on Monday, December 16, 2019

This tutoral can be found online on a million different sites. What's different about this one? It's so simple it can't fail. This is written mainly for my own refference and will be updated when I see that changes are needed.


Inbox Non-Zero

posted on Tuesday, December 10, 2019

Did you hear about inbox zero? This is a letter from a developer that refuses to care about his email count.


Working with promises in batches

posted on Wednesday, December 4, 2019

Have you ever neded to do some work in batches? How about promises? Let's say you have an API that can't take more than 2 API calls at once. This is a really simple way to do the work you need.


Sending secrets on-line

posted on Tuesday, November 26, 2019

Yesterday evening I found a cool little service called Patchbay. The main idea is to allow a simple way to transport data point to point using HTTP. Among awesome features implemented on the page I found a really cool feature.


Podcasts

posted on Sunday, November 17, 2019

I listen to a few podcasts on a daily basis. Here are all of them and a few words why I spend my time listening to them.


Dotfiles

posted on Wednesday, October 30, 2019

This is more or less the continuation of the previous blog post but a lot of things changed in last few months. I’ve “moved back” to my laptop and I’m not working on a server anymore due to the changes to vscode server. Since I’ve had to setup everything again here is a blog post explaining my tool set!


My tools

posted on Thursday, July 25, 2019

This page is inteded to be my take on the popular site about what tools people use. For an example take a look at Aaron Swartz.
