Going back to my Macbook Air

I started to work at my current company at 2013. In that year I got a maxed-out MacBook Air, which I loved a lot, but it became a bit storm-beaten, I poured some coffee into it (two or three times) – the first one led to a mainboard replacement, but the others were forgotten, and once my son hammered it a bit – few damages on carousel, and a broken charge connector which was repaired.

Last year I got a new 15″ maxed-out Macbook pro, and I really didn’t like it, so I was procrastinating the switchover for a few months after the machine was on my desk – I got the machine around May, and I moved on that around October.

And I bought my old laptop from the company because I liked it.

I use the new machine for three months so I can articulate my opinion about the new MBP series: they’re a glorious piece of shit. The keyboard is awful – the worst one I had for years, my fingertips are hurt a lot – I have to type really strong to get the feedback, and that is painful. The machine is too big for me, it is not convenient to put it into my lap, I have to hold it there, not just put down. The touch bar is useless, but at least it is easy to accidentally touching it, which will lead to funny moments like reloading a webpage which I use, and the apps I am using not getting any advantage from it. For example, I can change my terminals color scheme, or I CAN OPEN A F*CKING MANUAL. That’s just wow. I really needed that, thanks, guys! And as a heavy vim user, I really don’t need a physical escape button for sure.  The force click touchpad is useless as well, but at least I had to learn a new way to interact finder, and I just don’t want to talk about USB-c.

So, I decided to move back on my old MacBook Air.

 

 

OSX and case-sensitive file system

I am really angry now.

A few weeks ago, when I was finished my MySQL backend checker I lost about two hours of work because I wasn’t commit anything to git, but I overwrote the working file with one of my doodle files – which file had the same name but with camel case. I had a default APFS filesystem (on High Sierra) – which is not case sensitive. This was a real amateur mistake I admit it, but the damage was done, I had to recreate everything (actually the second time I was way faster, it took around an hour.)

I guess I am back again

This was fun!

I mean, I did not create any new content here for a while, and I have very good reasons about that – but tbh I was lazy, and overwhelmed with stuff to do.

We migrated everything to AWS – so be prepared for some Amazon related posts, I changed MySQL to Aurora and my company itself changed a lot.

In this pause time, I tried to migrate everything to Jekyll, but it wasn’t a success, then I spent the time to migrate everything to Hugo … and now I am on WordPress again. Funny.

In the future, I plan to make the posts here a bit more diverse, not just tech stuff. We’ll see it.

Moving to own domain

Hi there!

So far I was blogging on Kinja but I’ve decided that I move my blog content to an own domain, and a WordPress blog.

Kinja is a great place to have good posts, and good conversations but the engine is not really made for tech blogs – it is really hard to insert preformatted text such as code or console dump, but I need to do it often.

I was moved all of my previous posts here, maybe in the future, I’ll edit them to fix the code displaying, but now I don’t feel the power for that.

Anyways, welcome here, let’s the blogging begin.
