All my thoughts, my work, and some stuff I thought would be interesting to share from over 20 years!

Did I lose my Mojo?

It’s been such a long time since I’m posted anything and what kinda bugs me is that I’ve had multiple moments where I felt like I could post something about this or that but every time I’ve chosen the consuming way and watch something on TV instead. There are so many things I kinda want … more →

Getting into VR

I’ve had my first VR experience about a year ago, where I went to a VR Center and tried on a rather old headset and could experience certain worlds by just walking (or better yet, teleporting) around. It was fascinating but the quality was subpar and I knew that there are better headsets out there. … more →

I took a break

It’s been some time since my last post and the reason for this was that I took a break, deliberately. I used this time to do other stuff, like catch up on some movies or TV Shows, did try out some games, and made some purchases like a VR Headset. Now I’m on a break … more →

Doing something great is overrated.

Doing something great is overrated. ‘Cause then people expect that from you… all the time. What they don’t realize is you’re just as screwed up as they are.

My Apartment version 2.0

RSS Feed

The state of RSS in 2021

I’m feeling like a dinosaur or just a weird human being by still using RSS in 2021 in a time of social media dominance but an RSS Feed App is still my most used app every single day, sometimes by a wide margin. But why is it that no one in my close social environment … more →

I just need more time…

I just need more time, the day currently has not enough hours for me to finish all the things I want to do in a day. Do some blendering, some writing, some coding, or just some relaxing and watching TV

9 comes before 10

I don’t know how many hours I’ve invested in the last two weeks for this new theme iteration but I really like what I see now. Gone are few things and I streamlined a lot of code in the back and I think the performance got even better. But let’s get into some details. Back … more →

It’s close, very close

It’s been one hell of a busy week but I made so much progress with SoaPatrickNine that I think it’s ready to be released very soon. It’s been a blast to start from scratch and actually reduce code and optimize the theme once again. It will be different but at the same time it’s similar, … more →
