June was a productive month, I managed to write a bunch of different posts and I've done some different stuff. Let's dive in!
I managed to write not one, but five blog posts in June! I'm impressed with myself.
- My ideal development workflow.
- Revisting paper notes.
- How to mirror from SourceHut to GitHub.
- My thoughts on Helix after 6 months.
- How to add a simple "Skip to content"-button to your website.
I started the habit of creating new Markdown-files for all the different ideas I have, so now I have a small backlog with some posts I want to get to this summer.
And I'm still getting emails from readers find my posts inspiring. It makes me really happy! I blog mostly for myself and to help myself remember and empty the brain cache, but knowing others find my stuff helpful and even inspiring is on another level - thank you!
Same as last month, on and off with running. I'm optimistic for the rest of the summer for more running! Gotta get in there for the remaining three half-marathons I have left this year!
I removed my timeline-page. I wasn't to fond of the design of it and it didn't bring me any joy. It redirects to the logs for the time being.
Tried out Caddy as an alternative to nginx. A co-worker of mine recommended it, Nils. It easier to setup than nginx-configs and I don't have to think about certificates anymore. I might migrate my whole homelab and VPS-setup over to it.
And I started working on another new Deno Fresh-project, Filmpolitiet API, which is basically a scraper project that gets data from NRK's Filmpolitiet and formats it into a queryable way. The goal with the project is to automate webscraping of a website to build an API and I think I have achieved that now. Now I need to document how to access the API properly. I'm storing the data in a PocketBase-database. If you want to contribute or just check out the source code – it's available on SourceHut.
I started reading a new book, How the World Really Works by Vaclav Smil. It's an interesting read and I like the author's approach to explain everything!
Watched a bit this month, two movies and a two shows.
- Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse – This can easliy be one of my favorite animated movies. It was so much fun! And visuals are stunning!
- Extraction 2 – This was a super "meh"-movie...
- Silo S1 – What a trip! I'm getting Fallout-vibes and some strange conspiracy-vibes from the whole thing. Super excited for whats to come!
- Black Mirror S6: Jaun is Awful – OK episode.
- Black Mirror S6: Loch Henry – Cool story, and I like how they brought in the "black mirror" aspect. People are weird.
- Black Mirror S6: Beyond the Sea – We can't go to other space now. This was a fucked up episode, in a good way.
- Black Mirror S6: Demon 79 – OK, never understood the "black mirror" aspect of this one.
And I started watching Secret Invasion S1. Not sure what I'm thinking yet, only seen two episodes so far, but I think I like the story so far.
