April is quickly coming to an end and… what a month it was! From Portugal to London, from thesis progress to assisting in classes, from movies to musicals, April was a packed month!
This is going to be a relatively short post, even though many things happened last month. The first three months of 2022 are completed and there’s now only 9 to go. That’s quite scary. Time flies!
Since I created this website’s colophon (also known as meta page), I’ve wanted to also created a page that show cased how this website evolved over the years. I created this website when I was 14, in 2014. At first, it was just a bunch of HTML pages written by hand. Within the first year, the website moved from pure HTML to WordPress and then to Hugo.
It is the end of February and it is unbelievable. It feels like 2022 started yesterday, yet here we are: in the end of one more month. I feel like I say this every month though.
It is unbelievable that 1/12 of the year has already gone by. I came back to the Netherlands in the beginning of the month and I’ve been able to achieve quite a few things last month.
Lately, I have been reading a bit more. Therefore, I wanted to be able to post more about it and track the progress. This is something I used to do before with Goodreads, but I have since stopped using it. The logical solution? Implement more features on my website. Why not?
Once again, a year is ending. It feels like it was yesterday that I was first discovering the IndieWeb and adding new features to my website, but that was 2 years ago now. Time has been passing quite fast since the pandemic started.
November was so busy that I did not even manage to write this in time! The month started with GLOW, the Eindhoven Light Festival. Unfortunately, due to the announced measures during the last day of the festival, the lights were shut down a day before. Due to that, I was not able to see more than half of it.
In 2015, I posted an article with a very similar name to this one. At the time, I was saying goodbye to WordPress and welcoming Hugo. As with everything in life, there are cycles and things change. It’s time to turn a new page on this website’s life cycle.
I am creating a new Micropub endpoint for my website and I read the specification. However, while testing the update action, something unexpected happened. The specification is not quite clear to whether we should deeply-traverse the update and update field by field, or solely replace the top-level keys.
Today I have been thinking about my website. Mainly about ditching Hugo and moving to a completely custom and dynamic website. There are a few reasons about why I would like more flexibility. However, I don’t know if it justifies the effort.
October started with a very nice trip to Paris, France. I was there from the 1st of October to the 3rd. We went by bus and it was quite a journey. Around 8 hours each way.
The week after, I had some Intro+ parties and activities. Intro+ was organized by the university for students that enrolled last year. It was quite fun: there was a pub crawl on the Thursday and then a party on Friday. I didn’t go Saturday, but I really do not regret the decision 😂.
YubiKeys are hardware authentication devices that can be used with many applications, such as GPG, SSH and for 2 factor authentication. I have owned quite a few over the past years and recently I decided to upgrade them to the NFC version so I can use them with my mobile devices.
September has been quite a busy month, a rollercoaster for sure, but a good one. It all started in the first week with the new students coming to campus for their introduction activities. I don’t think I’ve seen the campus so vibrant until that day.
August was a busy month. I fly back to the Netherlands quite in the beginning of the month so I could get my second Covid-19 vaccine, which caused a mild fever overnight but was pretty fine overall.
