My blog is now CDN free, and thanks to the use of aggressive local and server caching, it should feel just as fast as it was before!

I liked this article on the failures of the Boeing 737 Max. Very well written and detailed technical and administrative explanations on what went wrong.

@kev @Matomo I've been considering it for a while, but after trying some tools that only parse the local web server log (and being moderately disappointed in the results), I think I'm going to deploy Matomo at once.

My gf's learning html. Nobody told her that vim's a strange tool for genius programmers, so I just told her it was a normal tool, showed her insert and escape, then let her get on with it.

Half an hour later, I showed her another vim command.

Someone with almost zero education, who can't type properly, is programming in vim because nobody told her it was difficult. I know people who can program in Haskell who aren't sure if they can do vim.

there were some things i ddn't knew about raspberry pis:

"Linux runs on that ARM CPU, we know that, but we might be surprised to learn that Linux on this device is only a second class citizen. The GPU cores run a real time operating system called ThreadX. This operating system is closed source and rules the system without the open source Linux Kernel being aware of it."

and guess who bought the ThreadX operating system last april?

Tampoco entiendo la necesidad de llenar todo de fotos de tu cara, de las cosas que haces 24 horas al d铆a, lo que piensas, lo que sientes.

Claro que pens谩ndolo bien, parece una herramienta muy efectiva para seguir tus gustos y tus intereses y poder venderte cosas.

Pues bueno, all谩 cada cual :)

@dustin @kev Yep. Agreed. I'm by no means an Apple Sheep. Both iOS and Android have their own shortcomings... But it's not like you have much choice apart from those two anyway. What are you going to do? Install Ubuntu Touch? Firefox OS?

Even BlackBerry is now yet another Android manufacturer.

Sad. Very sad.

@quad @hj probably because of variations in power plug design across the world. They might save a few cents by shipping it without a power cord and then just buy some from the local suppliers to ship the product with.

Banned C standard library functions in Git source code:

Another privacy win from Apple as they take a firm no-exceptions policy to all tracking practices in Safari.

Their newly-announced policy states that "tracking users 'without' consent... will [get you] kicked off the platform, treated like malware."

This is the exact same reason why I switched to iPhone. iPhone SE too!

Great article, @kev, good job.

My new blog is live! Come check it out at

Will be adding new features over time, probably.

I ended up scrapping my progress and started from scratch. I'm testing and developing my blog's new design at I used as a base.
