This was a quiet month, I think. I'm still adjusting to being a parent, and it's amazing! There are new things happening every day, and we have new things to look forward to every day!

And a few hours after publishing my last monthly update, I went ahead and ordered a new 3D printer, the Original Prusa i3 Mk4. Five minutes after taking it out of the box I was already printing. With my Ender 3 S1 I think I spent just a couple of hours looking up tutorials on how to make the bed level properly. But with my new Prusa Mk4 it does so fully automatically. And it's so much faster, and quieter!

πŸ’ͺ Health

Still keeping up with my running. I tried out the new watchOS feature for running against yourself. I managed to run my 5 km route 1 minute and 15 seconds faster. So I think I'm going to continue using that. And I have a new race coming up late in October, another half-marathon.

πŸ§‘β€πŸ’» Website

I haven't done so much this month when it comes to my website, but I managed to add a few new pages: More and Subscribe. After moving away from Zola to Fresh I forgot to link to some of my other pages, like my logs etc. And I wanted a seperate page on how to subscribe to the blog.

I've also updated my Uses-page. There are some tooling that has changed and a few updates to my actual set up.

🎬 Entertainment

Still watching Ashoka, and started watching Succession this month as well.

  • Succession S1 - What a great show! The family dynamic in this show is so intriguing and fucked up.
  • Foundation S1 - I had really high hopes for this show. The first half was really good, but some of the acting really tore it back down. We tried to watch S2, but the storyline following Gaal and Sal was so boring. It's a shame, because the world is so interesting and Lee Pace really brought his great talent to this show.

Full logs are available over on my watched-page.

🌐 Links

A new section. Here I want to share some links I've curated/picked up this last month that I found interesting. Have a look!

  • git-cliff – A customizable changelog generator. I'm eager to try this out for some of my own projects!
  • Vento – A new template generator, made by the same developer behind the static site generator Lume.
  • On Craft – A great read about how craft can be a form of communication and collaboration, instead of a weapon.
  • Style is consistent constraict – How style can be a (good) constraint on staying consistent. I even wrote up my own take on it, in Style.
  • On Waiting – "You’re guaranteed to have more information in the future."
  • Imba – A full-stack langauge for creating web applications. No more need for writing everything seperatly.
  • Making time – "Out with the old, in with the new."
