On taking bold stances (WordPress vs FLoC)

Google is known for wanting to know as much as possible data about its users so those pieces of information can be worth more when selling. That is what FLoC, their new idea, basically does: they are trying to replace cookies with a new thing so they can go around regulations, especially in the EU....

How I started my programming journey

I always had a thing for computers now that I think about it. I was maybe 5 years old when my dad bought a 386 computer with MS-DOS on it and I was blown away by it. I used to have two “games” in MS-DOS that I could play: a starship shooting bullets and floating...

My 2021 setup

We, the developers, tend to look at other fellow developers and copy ideas for our workspaces and setups. Don’t you dare to say it is not true :)! Have you ever seen a beautiful screenshot of an IDE and immediately downloaded the same font and applied it too? I’m not sure anyone would want to...

Changed my domain name after only a day

Just wrote yesterday my first post on the English website and I mentioned that I had the domain filipac.net laying around and I used that. But then I remembered that the cool TLD for developers is .dev though. I also had the domain pacurar.dev in the shopping cart for a few months now in Google...

Hello world, welcome to my english blog.

Hi there! For a long time I’ve wanted to make a personal page and blog in English, but I was too shy to actually do it. Not anymore. On this nice Saturday evening I took an initial step to translate my existing romanian website to English. I use WordPress for this site so I quickly...
