What is a treasure that’s been lost?

This is entry #4 for the Bloganuary challenge. Today’s prompt is “What is a treasure that’s been lost?” I am going to be grim in today’s post. A treasure humanity has found one day but lost again nowadays is peace. I live in Romania, an eastern European country located near Ukraine. The war that Russia is...

Buble gum and adventures

This is entry #3 for the Bloganuary challenge. Today’s prompt is “What is the earliest memory you have?” Our brain is an interesting concept, it tends to forget things to make room for new memories, at least that is how my brain works. But in fact, I think I never forget things but somehow put...

Am I really brave?

This is entry #2 for the Bloganuary challenge. Today’s prompt is “How are you brave?” I never considered myself a brave person, but now that I think about it… there might be some part of bravery inside me. Why? Because I have a higher risk tolerance than others, and you need to be brave for...

What is something I want to achieve this year?

This year I’ve decided to join the Bloganuary challenge and respond to a prompt daily. This is a good exercise to write something daily. Today’s prompt is “What is something you want to achieve this year?“ This year something I want to do is start reading. I’ve been listening to a lot of podcasts and video...

When I got these two bills out from the ATM in Washington earlier this year, the DXY index which shows the strength of the dollar was at 113.95, today the same strength is lower at 104.32.

They say crypto is “too” volatile.

Hello everyone!

I wanted to share a quick update about my blog. I recently decided to upgrade the underlying technology stack, which included upgrading the PHP version from 7.4 to 8.2 and upgrading the Laravel framework from version 7 to version 9.

While this process went smoothly overall, I did run into a few issues with certain packages and plugins that were incompatible with the newer versions. It took some time to troubleshoot and resolve these issues, but I am happy to report that everything is now running smoothly on PHP 8.2.

Overall, I’m really excited about the performance improvements and new features that come with these upgrades. I’m looking forward to exploring all that the new versions have to offer and continuing to provide a great experience for my readers.

Thanks for following along, and stay tuned for more updates from me in the future!

I’ve lost some money, I’ve re-gained it back, I am building a strategy for myself. But often I hear people that say trading is gambling, or the same type of thing. No. Trading...

Raycast wrapped

I installed Raycast at the end of February this year, so the data you can see in the picture below is almost for the whole of 2022 year. I find it interesting that Whatsapp and Outlook are the most open apps, but I think I know why: I keep VSCode and PhpStorm almost always open...

How do you like your coffee?

I am a coffee guy – period! I like coffee and sometimes maybe I drink too much of it. I am also a programmer so the perfect stereotype – programmers drink coffee. I drink it for the taste, not to keep me awake. I can drink coffee (maybe even 2-3) and in the next 10...

Guess it's obvious, but the theme is created by myself with Tailwind CSS. You can find the source code here.
I still use WordPress 🧡. The theme is custom Laravel though 😎.
