Recently, I started a subscription at Microlab, in Eindhoven, a coworking space. Since I’ll likely be working remotely full time from October on, I thought it would be a great idea to do so. Today, I moved most of the things I needed (laptop stand, monitor, keyboard, mouse, etc) with the help of Christiaan. It’s looking very nice and I’m happy I made this choice.

Iโ€™ve been visiting my parents for the past few days - and it has been very nice - but I always forget how slow their Internet is. I just run a Speedtest and got 16.28 Mbps down andโ€ฆ guessโ€ฆ 0.76 Mbps up. Also, we only got 16.28 Mbps down because itโ€™s 7am and no one else in the neighborhood is using tโ€ฆ

Just repeated it during the day and got some marvelous 6.86 Mbps down and 0.56 Mbps up โšก๏ธ It’s definitely light speed. The worst part is that the Internet provider has had fiber in the town for years now. But first it was just for companies and now it’s just in some streets. We’re talking about a very small town (less than 500 people), adding cables wouldn’t be that much work.

It’s usually closer to 8 Mbps.

Yesterday I made a few updates to my websiteโ€™s header. Now, I brought back some elements that I had before, with a title and the search bar and then the navigation below. I also added this avatar of myself that I was gifted some time ago which โ€œsitsโ€ on top of the navigation bar. What do you think? I personally feel like it looks much better both on computer and on mobile, being much closer to what I want.

In more internal updates, I added CodeMirror with Markdown and YAML frontmatter support for editing entries. It looks so much better and itโ€™s so much natural to edit posts now.
