These โ€œemojiโ€ archives are kind of cool! Reminded me of Aaron Pareckiโ€™s avatars, that reflect any emoji present in his notes. (Turns out, of course, Aaron has an actual emoji archive, too. ๐Ÿ˜Š)

Thanks! I think Aaron’s archive is probably the first!

Yesterday I was talking to @Seb and he showed me his emoji page where he lists all the emojis used on his website. If you click on them, you can also see the posts where they are used. I thought it was such a great idea that I did the same. You can see all the emojis I’ve used on this website sorted by frequency (most used first) and which posts they were used in!

Today I started executing the experiments for my thesis project and they take so much time ๐Ÿ˜ฑ. Around 30 to 60 minutes each and I have to run around 20 in total. I really wish I could defend the thesis before September, but it feels unlikely. For that I have to have a very good draft by the end of next month, which is feasible, but unlikely.

In Portuguese, we call weekdays “dias รบteis”, which literally means “useful days”. Yet, we don’t call the remaining useless.

Now that I’ve crossed the English Channel (or Canal da Mancha, in Portuguese) by train twice, I must say that it was a very nice experience. From Rotterdam to London, it takes approximately 3h30m, including a ~30 minutes stop in Brussels.

However, I also have some notes that may not apply to everyone: (1) it would be much quicker to get a flight directly from Eindhoven that takes 1h to get to London, (2) the security and border procedures at Rotterdam are quick, (3) the security and border procedures in London are a bit slower, (4) you need to be some time in advance at the station, just like the airport.

Nevertheless, it was a good experience and I would recommend it! It’s much more comfortable than a plane and better for the environment. Unfortunately, it’s also much more expensive! If you buy it in advance though, it can be worth it!

A few days ago I mentioned that I wanted to ditch my daily Last.fm backup script and instead publish the scrobbles on my website. Well, I did it! Instead of publishing a post per scrobble, I automatically create a post that contains all the scrobbles from that day (yesterday example). In addition, every month and every year receives its own summary post with top artists, albums and songs, as well as listening clock and listening week plots! Here’s last month and last year for example!
