Good old internet

It all started with this tweet: It is exactly a sentiment I had for a while now about the current state of the internet. Everything we do 90% of the time on the internet now is controlled by a few companies. Am I the only one that sees this as a potential threat? I remember...

Has anyone managed to use the WordPress mobile app to write posts on a blog with WPML? My Romanian blog and English blog are the same basically and I use WPML to show different content based on the domains.

I tried adding the English website to the mobile app but Jetpack sees the site as a duplicate of the Romanian one and ignores it.

On this occasion I cloned the WordPress iOS app locally to explore how that’s built, looks nice!

I am going to try new things with my blog and the first amongst those things is the ability to share quick posts that are meant to be like a status update on social platforms.

I like owning my content so less posting on social media, and more posting on my own platform. Like the good old days.

Let’s go!

PS: How do those status updates look like are WIP.

My 2022 setup

PHP, CodeIgniter, Laravel, Vue, React, front-end… or how I changed my stack over the course of time

Also: Keep up to date with the fast-paced changing scenery of the tech world. Back in 2012 when I got my first programming job right after I graduated high school, I did not have any experience with PHP frameworks, I’ve mainly used plain old PHP for my freelance websites and the only thing closer to...

Whittier, Alaska

Do you know those Facebook posts and pages that randomly appear in your feed and you get some real facts? I did not follow any of them, but Facebook seems to know that I like those and randomly shows me those kinds of posts from time to time. A normal human being would read the...

3 months as a front-end developer only

It’s been 3 (almost 4) months now since I moved on to my next contract and it’s been quite a nice ride until now. I noticed that even though I planned on writing more stuff on this blog, I’ve been kind of inactive and I hate that. So here I am making a retrospective of...
