This post is a 15 mins write-up because I just fucked up :bomb: and overwrote a draft post that I had thoughtfully put together. So here is a sloppy quick note-to-self for my future stoopid :facepalm: self in the "done is better than perfect" spirit.
America :us: has produced companies like Amazon, Apple, Facebook, Google and Microsoft, while Europe doesn't quite seem to have comparable Big Tech companies? :trophy: Why is that? :thinking:
Just the bare minum to get started with Transmission from the CLI.
A note to self on the order in which NixOS :snowflake: zsh :shell: prompt options are handled.

A note :memo: on laziness in Nix attrsets and merges :collision: of Nix attrsets which happened to bite me in the ass during my attempt to write a few derivations for new packages. :new: :package:
A brief account of the different methods of building Arduino code on

tools :wrench: among other.
A short guide :clipboard: on dropping in and out of terminals :fax: in neovim.
Trying to understand Haskell's syntax for function composition through the
(.) operator akin to $f\circ g$.
Reminding myself how to use Irssi :speech_balloon: again after a while of dormancy. Hopefully this primer :memo: will help me get back on track fast enough, next time I need to brush up on my irssi usage skills :wink:.
In an attemp to get the ibus-daemon to play ball I needed to understand how NixOS :snowflake: handles the entire GUI :eyes: dance so here goes a brief commentary on the NixOS :snowflake: xsession setup.
Accessing stylistic variants in Inkscape, along with some other font :black_nib: feature settings.
Just a primer :pill: on the basic tools :wrench: and terminal-fu that come in handy in housekeeping disks :floppy_disk: in Linux :penguin:.
Learning from others how to get the mediabuttons on the Dell 9560 (XPS) to play ball with NixOS+XMonad
Safe yourself some trouble with the qesteidutil tool and just get the update if you are running into some certificate-related issues.
Limbo! Filled up the partition :floppy_disk: containing
/nix/store to the brim. y computer :computer: froze up and I'm
at a conference. Need to grow some partitions to give NixOS :snowflake: some
A messy coverage of some basics that I may commonly refer to during my NixOS :snowflake: usage.
Just got in an awkward social predicament by using gender-based title in an effort to be polite. The things we do without actively thinking about why we do them and where they are from.
The Brits voted for Brexit. Progressive western media isn't exceptionally positive about this outcome and I'm just trying to understand the pros and cons.
We had the trickster in folklore, but today our corporation are out-smarting us all right under our noses.
The goons in Amsterdam are having a IPA & API's meetup. I couldn't help but think about them once I saw a well-stocked IPA aisle at the Deli.
After a while of project management work, a friend is yearning to in on the action again. Things change fast so as of April 2016 I'll try to list a few things that I deem instrumental in understanding and building modern system for the web.
Presenting HTML lists as we would've presented them in a sentence.
The sigmoid function provides a differentiable alternative to the step function. Derrive the sigmoid function and observe why she is so elegant.
Noticed an e-mail from Kloudsec this morning. A few minutes after setting out to try the service my github page was CDN'ed, SSL'ed and shadowed.
Mvula's voice is conveying another empowering message in celestial style, supported by the animated riffs and musical genius of the great Nile Rodgers.
I lost my brother in a nightmare then woke up to a world where he was alive as ever. I just felt I needed to share a few things with my younger brother, a remarkable homosapien specimen.
Note-to-self about Erlang list conses and why to use them to refrain from writing code I could possibly get shunned over by wiser peers.
A pragmatic solution to dealing with multiple sessions in tmux
Note-to-self about ES6 constants and a few tips to remember if you really don't want other devs to kill you.
My experience with the German police and how I can understand the hatred that some people have against police forces.

Just a rant about flow, task-switching and the methods I employ to protect my flow at the office all instigated by another episode of Slack alerting me out of my flow.
I've been around in the startup game for a little while now and every time a landing page is needed. I almost lose my mind over the amount of time wasted on pixel-twerking instead of turning the knobs that could get the company to grow. Many companies have great landing pages, learn from them and focus on the business instead of webpages.
Simple notes-to-self on setting
GOPATH's to keep projects clean and devs happy.
Just an opinion (my opinion) on the efforts out there to organize events for minority members.
Some notes that end up saving my ass once I start playing around with containers again after small sabbaticals. That happens with spongy brains… a lot soaks in, but somehow details seep out in time.
A simpleton's reasoning of material conditionals (if/then logic $p\rightarrow q$) which seems to be different from the way we discuss if/then constructs in everyday English or computation but really isn't at all hard to grasp.
First encounters in setting up and using a Kubernetes cluster on Google Cloud
Just unearthing a few gems that should make series summation so much simpler. Can't imagine I did not remember these... anyways... never too late, right?!?
How to automate the creation of Google Cloud infrastructures with the Deployment Manager.
In order to deal with the growing pains I'm suffering from at the moment of the 27th New Year's eve I'm experiencing, I've decided to type myself into the new year whilst reflecting and looking ahead. Somewhat of a "Dear Diary" kind of moment.
Just a quick glance into running compute instances in the Google Cloud using the CLI.
A return to the most versatile mail client I have ever had the pleasure of using after many frustration hours with Google Mail, Apple Mail, Sparrow and Airmail
Some GPG tricks everyone should know and master, because crypting is something that you should take serious.
Something I still need to do in 2014 to keep that insatiable hunger to discover and learn in balance. The nicest part is that you can help me to accomplish it!
AWS rocks but because of the many services being offered it may feel like a impenetrable jungle at a first glance. This is my take on navigating that jungle using the CLI as my machete.
When working with values in different base systems it may be convenient to know how to determine how much digit spaces a value would require
A note-to-self to future me in case I forget how to perform calculation in my terminal without firing up a REPL
