This week I did get to a milestone, one that really makes me feel pretty proud of the work I’ve poured into this. Initially the idea was to do a simple website with simple community tools that I would give to users. This idea grew into something else. The idea remained the same. I would… Continue reading Development Notes #4 Refactoring & Hitting the milestone feels so good
Photo by duncan c. I like to think I have a very good imagination. It fuels me when I’m being creative, it creates a spark within me. I guess, my inner mind, or whatever you want to call it keeps popping them up from time to time. I like to think that everyone goes through… Continue reading Maybe that idea you have had for years isn’t a bad idea, so why not commit to it?
I think when it comes to buying high-end laptops it doesn’t matter if it is MacBook, or a Dell XPS, or a Razer laptop. Most of the cost can easily range from $2,000 to almost $3,000 and that alone could be a crazy price if you don’t have a job good enough to tackle that… Continue reading My eGPU experiences so far with a Macbook Pro (Mid/2017)
For years I’ve been looking at possible replacements for WordPress. I’ve thought about Drupal but it requires too much time to setup to bother. I did like Movable Type when it was open source ages ago but that somewhat died really quick as well… plus you needed to have extensive knowledge of Perl to get… Continue reading Sometimes I wonder if WordPress is unbeatable…
Over the time I have spent with my Macbook Pro I’ve learned to accept a lot of its cons such as a extremely shallow keyboard. Of course, my acceptance has a limit thus I will never accept the infamous touchbar. I’ve been in disgust with my Dell gaming laptop, a Dell Inspiron i7559-5012GRY. It’s not… Continue reading I don’t think Apple’s thinness obsession is far off…
These are my final notes on Microsoft Azure. It’s not meant to be taken as a review, but just yet another experience. I’ve spent a total of two months with Microsoft Azure(referred as Azure from here on). Most of the time I spent with Azure was using their B-series virtual machines which for small/medium sites… Continue reading Final Notes on Microsoft Azure
I’m astonished that my first experience with ArubaCloud is not as bad as I initially expected. It’s not how I expected to open this post tonight and it’s certainly something that I’ll be giving a real test throughout the year because when you offer $1 Virtual Private Servers you can’t help but wonder how they… Continue reading ArubaCloud is not as bad as I expected: A contender to the “one dollar wonder”?
I have noticed over the months I have been working on my app that managing foreign languages like Japanese, Chinese, Korean, etc takes a memory hit to the point that it spikes up the memory usage–as one would expect. Sure, I expect more memory usage… but we are talking about a spike from 60mb (normal… Continue reading The weird case of foreign languages
Ever since we had the privilege to use Gmail (Googlemail) e-mail service back in 2004 Google became our favorite search engine, and truly our favorite e-mail service dethroning hotmail, yahoo, and other popular services by introducing a fresh look. Its feature rich web interface and the features it offered made me rave in delight for… Continue reading My e-mail service makes me uncomfortable
If you are currently reading one of my How-To articles or downloading the WINE binaries for a game. My apologies, I’m currently restoring the data as I migrated everything to Ghost blogging platform. It won’t take long; I’m just waiting for rsync to finish uploading all the data, then I’m off to tweak a few… Continue reading Restoring data
