RIP Kevin Mitnick 😭
It’s crazy that whenever a new “social media” platform arrives, people can’t resist to jump right into it. Like, literally in the same minute. Especially the people who complain the most about the condition of all available options right now.
- Oh, social media are so bad, we need to cancel our accounts RIGHT NOW!
- (5 minutes later) Oh, Threads is here! I’m XYZ on it, please follow me to get in touch!
Come on, people… start a blog.
Late at night I love to listen to Carbon Based Lifeforms — VLA.
Warning: another rant ahead.
I’m so tired of omnipresent animations and gradients on all “modern” websites. Take an example of Stripe, they have just released stripe.com/enterprise which lags as hell on my quite fast M1 Macbook Air. This machine has a lot of power but still struggles with the website.
I don’t get why there is a need for such things. I know that Stripe always has been a playground for these kinds of experiments but after all these years it seems to be boring and unnecessary. It doesn’t serve anything but a couple of tweets about how nice website they have… This is madness.
Alan Wake 2 finally got the release date — October 17, 2023. I’m so excited!
I’m also wondering why they have brought a new character to the story — especially when they revealed that Alex Casey will be in this game too.
So, imagine that: you are playing as Alex Casey (who is a version of Max Payne in the world of Alan Wake) and you are looking for Alan Wake. This is so meta on too many levels, that I don’t understand why they didn’t come with that… Maybe they are holding this concept for the third installment. I hope so.
EDIT: Oh, after watching Alan Wake: Return I have learned more about who Saga is and why we probably won’t play as Alex anytime soon, yikes.
After 8 years since the show started and almost 4 years after the last episode aired — Mr. Robot, Vol. 8 (OST) finally has been released ♥️
Tweets like this one remind me about the meme about putting every possible technology into your blog with only one post.
This is the current state of the modern web development…
I’ve started building my own Nvim config from scratch. While it’s quite hard to learn this massive setup, I think this will help me to keep myself sane and busy because it’s something new, something else… Something interesting!
Spotify recently released probably the worst re-design I’ve ever seen in the history of mobile music apps. Its home screen is terrible, it’s useless. A lot of live tiles that don’t make sense to me. I just need separated sections like before for Mixes, for recently played music, for inspiration etc. I don’t care about timelines with fancy animations that mean nothing…
I hope they eventually revert this change… OK, I know they won’t… But still…
I know it’s coming — sooner than I thought, but I can feel it…
Another “career” reset…
And I’m not talking about changing a job (but yes, this will happen too eventually), I’m talking about going back to the junior level and learning totally different things: languages / environment.
- Go + switching to backend development
- Ruby (RoR) + continuing full stack (not a big difference from what I’m doing now, but at least there is a new language to learn)
Why? Because I’m bored and I think I am wasting my time and passion for programming doing basically nothing interesting. Also, there is no one around me to push me toward something meaningful, something that would bring me joy… Or maybe it’s just my current job. I don’t know… yet.
