It’s time I tried some new stuff with this blog’s theme, without forgetting the original philosophies behind it.

2024 is here

And it has been so for about 2 weeks. One of my goals this year is to pick this blog up again. I have written some stuff in Medium which I have decided to move to this blog (I just haven’t gotten around to doing it), but even then it […]

Inclusion In Tech: Are We Doing Enough About Ageism?

Later this month, I’ll be turning 28. It’s strange to think now that I had started learning English when I was 8 – this means that was 20 years ago. A fifth of a century. It makes me feel… Old. See, at this point in my life I am at […]

I have certainly not abandoned this blog – it’s just that the first months of 2023 were absolutely crazy to me. And in my absence, it seems like ChatGPT is the thing that everyone is talking about now. ChatGPT was released in November 2022, and it quickly has become part […]

How to Hire a Programmer

Back in the 19th century, work was extremely straightforward. You enter the factory at an assigned time, then you’d spend the next 18 hours pushing a lever or putting in corkscrews or doing something mindnumbingly boring. And that was about it. If you were born in 1840 and died in […]

0395.ch Lore: why the .ch domain?

Note for non-technical readers: you can think of “TLD” as the part of the site link that comes after the site name. So the TLD for google.com is .com; 0395.ch is .ch; and so on. .ch is a Switzerland domain – it is not a Chinese domain like some people […]
