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.

Today I went to the weirdest museum I’ve been lately, the Kunstmuseum in The Hague. There were many wicked artworks. Fortunately there were also very pleasing ones. The best ones were the kinectic sculptures by Theo Jansen that you could interact with - I don’t have pictures of those so they’re not shared here.

My friends and I ended up having lunch very late (at 5pm) in Rotterdam where we ate Turkish, Greek, Portuguese and some Russian things. A lot. But a nice day.

After 4 years, Mozilla fixed the Firefox bug that prevented my move some time ago. It was such a UI nitpick, but somehow my brain couldn’t handle it. Maybe I’ll be moving out of Chrome soon, then?

Recently in June '22

I have recently noticed I have been writing ‘recently’ posts since September 2020. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting it to have been that long. Today, I am trying a different format. Sometimes I’m not sure on how to organize this monthly posts and I see some people posting bullet-list weekly or monthly posts so I decided to try.

It seems like Tailscale just introduced SSH over Tailscale which is quite interesting. Even though I haven’t been using Tailscale, I am a fan of the product and have used it briefly in the past. I’m looking forward to play with it a bit more. Do you use it? What for?

When you have to repeat all of the experiments of your thesis because there was a very small bug in the code with way too much influence 🤦‍♂️

Telegram Premium is there, at least the announcement that it should be there, but the update on Google Play somehow not yet. Unfortunately, the announcement says that Premium is not (yet) available for users in Germany. ☹️ I’m especially waiting for the feature to be able to convert voice messages t…

I’m considering to try it for a month or two. The update is out for me and the plan is available here in the NL and the audio to text, assuming it works well, seems very nice.

It’s 28.9C inside my studio and I am trying to work, albeit not very successfully. Maybe I should’ve gone to university? Later today I want to go for a walk and I also need to go to the supermarket.

Just made a very small update to my website. Now, I can update reading progress much easily: I just need to go to the book’s page and then I will have this options:

Book Update Options

When reading physical books, I have a shortcut that allows me to scan the barcode of the book and enter the page. However, e-books don’t come with a barcode with the ISBN and I’m measuring the progress in percentage - it’s also possible to measure in pages though!

I urgently need to pay a visit to the Turkish supermarket. A friend of mine told me a few days ago that they are selling nêsperas (Eriobotrya japonica), or loquats in English. It is a very delicious fruit but it is extremely hard to find here! My parents used to have a tree of them. When I get them, I will definitely post a picture. How much I miss this fruit!
