Me!

HI 👋, I’M HENRIQUE (he/him), a Portuguese-born 🇵🇹 being that is currently living in The Netherlands 🇳🇱. I enjoy learning about new things, taking photographs, playing badminton, and programming. I’m a nearly graduating 🎓 master’s student, and a software engineer 🛠 interested in web infrastructure, decentralized systems, and making tools for developers and users. I like coffee ☕️ and tea 🍵 alike.

One of the reasons I didn’t add a Listens section earlier was Jekyll was taking too much to generate all the pages in my website, adding the scrobbles would’ve made it unbearable. So what I started doing was manually filtering through the listens and highliting the best albums, if they’re worth list…

But if you listen to a lot of music this approach would probably deserve its own website I guess.

Maybe this is where my problem is. What is the line that divides what I should put on my website vs. another service / subdomain. Same thing for the wiki and bookmarks I guess.

Bookmarks. Yesterday I mentioned I want to improve the bookmarks section in my website. However, I am also considering on some self-hosted services. I want a simple way to bookmark pages and possibly add notes to them, as well as tags. Do you use any service for this? How do you “solve” this problem?

Wikis, information and commands. Today I was upgrading the Docker containers in my server and I had to figure out how to fix something because there was a breaking update. For future reference, I added it to some random markdown file I have on my computer with some notes. However, I always forget to check it and end up searching for the same things over and over again.

In the past, I thought about having a public wiki, but that failed. Maybe because I tried to build it on top of very old notes I had that have no real use for me nowadays. What do you use to keep this types of notes and snippets? I wanted to have something simple that I could access and edit at any time, preferably online. Any ideas?

I think there’s value in Likes. For me they’re just a way to let the author know I enjoyed their post. In my case they’re not mean to be public so I keep them unlisted. Inspired by your Listens I added a similar section on my website, but it gets one post per month or whenever I mark a song as “Love…

Uh, I like the idea of keeping the likes unlisted. Perhaps that’s a great idea. Regarding the listens and watches: I like to collect all the information, and since I have it, why not display it? Besides, the way I’m collecting the listens and watches information right now makes it a bit difficult to work with, so I’m not yet 100% sure how I’m gonna change it.

For the reads, I already updated the pages and what I did is to just have a page per book, and that same page shows all the updates regarding that book. No more posts for started reading, want to read, or just finished reading. I can leverage the post updated date to sort the posts in the reads section.

I could do something similar for the watches page where I would have a post per series and a post per movie. I think that could work nicely. However, the organization for the listens would be harder: is it per artist? per song? per album? I will probably leave these changes for the end, while I deal with the remaining. Do you have any ideas?

Btw, it seems I did not receive a Webmention for the deleted post at https://kandr3s.co/notes/2022/08/2022-08-15-wlaeo. I will remove it manually, but if you send a webmention for a deleted post, my website will automatically remove it.

I’ve realized that trying to strictly follow what is on the IndieWeb wiki won’t work well for me. Thus, I have to invent and change some things to make it work better. The IndieWeb Wiki is a good source of inspiration one could use, but I don’t see it as a guideline you need to closely follow. A lot…

Hey! Completely agreed. I think it should be a “reply”. I’m planning on removing the likes in long-term because they don’t add anything interesting. I would say that bookmarks are… bookmarks - posts or websites you find interesting and you might want to look at them in the future. I think those are useful. Likes and reposts feel a bit more… useless let’s say.

I’m trying to “degoogle” and finally got enough courage to give Firefox a real chance. So far, there’s only two main things bothering me:

  1. Firefox does not support Touch ID as a 2FA method on macOS. I have many websites configured using Touch ID (as well as the YubiKeys) for 2FA but I can’t really use it on FF. There’s an open issue about it, of course, but I imagine it taking years to get fixed.
  2. Translation. I don’t speak Dutch and, even though I can use extensions to translate, none of them translates a website as seamlessly as Chrome does.

My thesis defense got recently scheduled. I’m happy and a bit frightened to be honest. We will see. Hopefully it will all be fine 🚀

What’s about this Dutch tradition of putting the PJs under the pillow or my boyfriend is just weird?

As a Portuguese person, I can say I’ve always done this too. Only the pajamas I’m currently using of course.
