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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
We couldn't figure out how to run next.js on Passenger with Nginx. The issue we had was very simple but seemingly unfixable.
How to setup ESXi on Intel NUC7i5BNH - from creating a USB to booting.
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.
Did you hear about inbox zero? This is a letter from a developer that refuses to care about his email count.
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
