Just got 12k rep on .
Haven't been working much on it and while I'd love to claim that I don't have much time these days (which is partially true) but the real reason is that the competition is getting very fierce which feels like a bittersweet victory πŸ™ƒ
The growth of contributors over the past 2 years is really noticable, well done guys!

That moment when you get caught off-guard by your old silly comments πŸ˜‚

Got some to do. Batch number 2 is up. This time I went with even more local stuff. Some appear to be healthier as they have pictures of some root everywhere. The 3rd one with a snake and cheap font kinda scares me though.

Needles to say my tea mug does not approve of being temporarily displaced πŸ˜…

I love
I don't think anyone here in watches though but the swag is irresistible πŸ˜…

Look what was delivered today?

Unfortunately my new condo is too small for VR so this bad boy is going to ebay 😭

Amazon's API is as awkward as it gets. I feel like we're going back in time when it comes to API design.
What's next? Delete("write a poem about a key I'd like to delete")

Ugh never had as ugly python code in as I have with

Good day and place to do some !

Working on some web crawlers today. The wifi is pretty good and so is the view! Got some mountains, trees and a pool.

That what €500/month get you in

Finally got 10k stackoverflow rep!
I'm mostly doing -crawling tags.

Lately the question quality hasn't been that great - there seems to be an influx of new users. However there are a lot of new great mentors to compete with as well.
This means I kinda need to expand my tag subscription if I want to reach 20k and above :)

medium.com has gone to complete shit with their naggy and disruptive UI. Why would I want 30% of the screen wasted on a banner and naggy "register now" footer?

Beautiful view of rice fields and mountain range at a small village in northern .

Now if I could find somewhere to sit down with my laptop and do some work πŸ€”

Anyone wants to help me get 3 new friends for quest? I'll send you gifts! πŸ™‚
