My code is still a mess, but I’m learning

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

I taught myself Go (and programming in general) by learning by doing. I learned by making a lot of mistakes and after noticing them, doing the necessary research. My Go code is probably a big mess, but it’s so satisfying, after not touching some code for a while, to do a major rewrite and improve the code with everything I’ve learned since the last time.

ChatGPT is smart enough to detect what the code in the single minified JavaScript file on my blog front page does. Try it out! 🙃

Ok, it’s also not that complicated to guess by looking at the long string at the beginning… But ChatGPT has figured out what it’s called.

98.css (again)

Published on in 💬 Micro

I already shared98.css” on my blog in 2020. It’s a CSS framework that styles semantic HTML to look like Windows 98.

It was recently reshared on Hacker News and I found the creator’s comment about it:

Hey HN - author here.

This was my burnout recovery project in April of 2020. Very much a labor of love and a surprising way to realize I still liked programming. I wrote some scattered thoughts here.

I also “run” this project quite differently than I usually do - when I receive a pull request instead of merging it I do a quick glance through the user’s github to make sure they’re not a spammer before giving them commit access and asking them to merge their own PR. It has worked wonders.

That’s a pretty interesting aproach to managing an open source project. Let’s hope nobody does a force push, removing everything. 😄

Now my question: Did somebody already use this project for a blog design?

Disable RAM Plus on OneUI 4.1

Published on in 📱 appydroid

When Samsung released the Android 12 update for my phone a few months ago, I noticed a new RAM Plus setting, which uses the storage to expand the memory. Pretty useless on my phone, as it has already 8 GB of RAM.

📍 Skradinski Buk, Croatia

Some impressions from the Krka National Park in Croatia. 🇭🇷

Today we made 30 thousand steps. 💪

After all those steps today, tomorrow is time for some chilling on the beach. ⛱️

We arrived here completely without flying. 🛤️ But I’ll write more about that, when I’m home again…

Back to GitHub

Published on in 💭 Thoughts

Not too long ago I reported how I build the Docker images for GoBlog using Drone and Docker-in-Docker.

Running my Drone CI runner at home has some disadvantages though. The network speed in a data center is much faster than my 100/40 mbps connection at home. But I will (hopefully) have a new provider soon with gigabit download (and a bit faster - 50 mbps - upload)…

After the bus driver only wanted to take us to the German-Danish border and we still had to walk a few kilometers, we found a cozy spot by the water.
