Hello! 👋 I haven’t lost the desire to blog, nor have I decided on Digital Detox, it’s just that I’m currently busy moving. Instead of continuing to program my own stuff after work and pouring my thoughts into blog articles, I had to pack boxes. Today was my last workday in the home office in the old apartment, Monday is the first workday in the home office in my new apartment. Then my blogging frequency will probably remain rather low, because I still have to clear out the old apartment, but I may have a little more time again. 😊 Out of curiosity, how many times have you moved already?
What I like about Deezer compared to Spotify: They don’t do those A/B tests where only a small group of users receives new features. They just release them for everyone. In other words, they just added an option to the Audiobooks app to adjust the playback speed. I can finally listen to audiobooks in 1.4x or 1.6x speed now.
I am all for using a custom domain for email addresses. I mostly use @jlelse.de, but I can also be reached via email addresses with @janlukas.de, @jlelse.blog and a number of other domains. Recently I bought yet another domain, but now I’m questioning if that was really a good idea. Well, maybe I will still find a practical use for this domain.
Writing a SQL database from scratch in Go
Phil Eaton wrote a really cool article. He documented how he used Go to write a rudimentary SQL database including a CLI. It is very interesting to read how commands are parsed and analyzed. The whole thing probably has no practical use (there are already countless mature database systems), but it’s still exciting. I remembered some of the math lectures in the first semester about formal languages.
