Text files, you gotta love them

I was reading Write plain text files from Derek Sivers and yes, you gotta love text files. How could you not? I agree with most of Derek’s points about the greatness of text files. I have been slowly, over the years, converting myself to a textfile believer. I have built backends using text files and […]

New blog design

For the past week or so I have been making time to work on a new theme for this blog. We software engineers can’t go for very long without making changes to our websites 😁 Be it the software running the site behind it (yes, I have done this several times) or the theme, the […]

Weeknote 8 (2022)

This week started horribly wrong. On what seemed a perfectly good Saturday I was home, after having a nice pizza recuperating from the morning class at school. As I approached my cat my back broke. Ok, it didn’t break but got a case of lumbago 😵 I haven’t had that for years, as far as […]

Privacy and anonymity

I was reading the post from Kash Be anonymous and it resonated with me. Anonymity is a tricky thing. It’s helpful to think of it as a spectrum instead of a black and white “status.” I liked this bit in particular and how Kash explains that the average Joe simply doesn’t care. Almost all my […]

Weeknote 7 (2022)

Instagram I have revived my Instagram account. I stopped posting due to the lack of interaction. Not the likes but comments 💬 I was probably doing something wrong (not being engaging enough? Simply bad content?). Likes are good but I love when conversations get started. I’ve had such interesting exchanges in my different blogs (except […]

Weeknote 5 (2022)

💉 😷 Two weeks I got the 3rd COVID-19 vaccine dosage. Yay! On my first two shots I felt great, just a small ache in the receiving arm. This time however, as I tweeted “I feel fantastic” the next day I started to get the chills. You know, the classic symptoms when you get a […]

Weeknote 2 (2022)

Second week of the year but first week back to school work. Actually, it’s both school and work. Back to teaching my classes as well as the home office. Unsurprisingly one of the new year’s resolutions, like every year, is to detox everything that was eaten and drank during the holiday season. if you’ve ever […]

Review: The Beatles: Get Back

The Beatles, it’s sad to think new generations might not even know who they were 😞 How of the world they rocked and how many musicians they inspired. The recent documentary called “The Beatles: Get Back” it’s a seven-hour edit of dozens of original video and audio recordings from 1969. I’ve just finished watching the […]

Review: Transfer of Power

Transfer of Power from Vince Flynn. This is a spoiler free review 😌 This is the third book of the Mitch Rapp series and I loved it ❤️ Plain and simple. I’m not a power reader 🤓 I don’t read that many books. I just got through 6 this 2021, which is a number you might […]

Weeknote 46 (2021)

6 weeks since my last update? Sorry about that. I have been neglecting my blogs for a while. I’m reading stuff, not so much creating or writing. First gig after lockdown 🎸 This week I had my first gig after lockdown, and the whole pandemic. We had lots of fun, the sound was great, and […]
