Why we’d like to move to the USA?

This week the Diversity Visa 2023 just opened. We did not apply yet, we still have to make good photos for all 4 of us, but we will most certainly apply for the second year, the second try. This year we’ll submit two applications, one for me as the main applicant and one for my...

Building PayForSpace – adding a new way to validate transactions

I’ve started to build this app called PayForSpace really fast and one thing I don’t like about this thing is that I am forced to make compromises. After I checked out the Elrond gateway documentation, I saw that I am only able to get the last 20 transactions and that includes both sent or received...

Between contracts

Since when I signed the contract with the current company I am working with now, I never actively searched for another offer or contract. I’ve kept refusing offers because I don’t like being unstable and moving every three months or so for 50 euros extra. I’ve kept refusing until I got an offer from Automattic...

Wasted working hours…

My greatest dilemma

If you read enough news from the United States you should be up to date with this fact: there are not enough people there to fill up all the job opportunities. Just read this tiny part from a survey from Texas related to the service sector: The very tight labor market has resulted in our...
