Just met with some friends at some other friend’s house and it was very nice. On an unrelated note, I noticed that OVPay is now charging me immediately after the end of the trip and not the day after for the full payment. At least with Hermes 🚍. It makes sense since The Netherlands doesn’t have daily caps.
HI 👋, I’M HENRIQUE (he/him), a Portuguese 🇵🇹 living in The Netherlands 🇳🇱. I’m a recently graduated 🎓 master’s student, and a software engineer 🛠 interested in web infrastructure, decentralized systems, identity, and making tools for developers and users. I enjoy learning about new things, taking photographs, playing badminton, programming, as well as a nice cup of coffee ☕️ or tea 🍵. Welcome to my island on the Internet 🏝️, where you can find a bit of everything!

I use CodeMirror 6 on my website to edit posts. Until now, native spellcheck and autocorrections were not working. Little did I know that I could just turn on
autocorrect=on on the editor field! The latter is a Safari only tag, but I’m really happy I can now write on mobile and benefit from the auto corrector from the keyboard!
So… center or left aligned titles? What do you prefer and why? Bonus question: how large should the title be in relation to the main content?
In the beginning of last month, I wrote a post about trying out the new payment system for public transit in The Netherlands, OVPay 💳. On it, I mentioned quite a few things regarding different operators. It’s been around a month, and I’ve had the opportunity to travel again on Hermes 🚍 buses using OVPay. Here’s the update.
You bring very good points on how ethical it may be to syndicate comments through Webmentions. I personally have been doing option (2), so I remove comments if someone asks me. I’ve only had that happen once, but my follower base is much smaller! If it becomes a very frequent thing, it may be much harder to manage.
My partner and I just had homemade fondue. Thanks to that, I discovered there’s a fondue 🫕 emoji. I love it. First time I had fondue was in Switzerland in 2019. Since then, I’ve only had it again in 2020 in Brussels. I’m happy to have it again. Looking forward for more 🧀 fondue!
Folks at work recently released NAT hole punching in libp2p and are now trying to find people to try it out to collect some valuable data. Libp2p is a modular network stack for P2P applications. NAT traversal and hole punching are quite important topics when it comes to building p2p applications, since it enables different machines behind NATs to talk to each other. If you care about p2p applications, please join the experiment! There’s more details in the linked page about how it works and the data collected.
November has been a pretty intensive month in many different regards: from my parents visiting The Netherlands for the first time, to my partner and I moving in together to a new apartment. Besides, we’re getting closer and closer to the end of the year, which means there are some cosy events I am looking forward to 🎄🍷.
@email@example.com Thanks to this and Wouter’s post, I just reduced the amount of Open Graph meta tags on my website. I also decided to remove all the Twitter meta tags I was using. There is still some clutter on my website’s
<head> element. I have to clean it up.
