Hi! I’m Andri.

I write about , , , , , , and occasionally I go on a random rant.

During the day, I work as a Tech Lead at PARKPARK. Opinions are my own.

YouTube is quicly approaching LinkedIn in terms of spammyness.

Ever worked with git and thought to yourself: "Oh shit!"?

Well, there's a page for that:

PSA: Don't plug random USB sticks or devices in your computer. Just in case that wasn't obvious by now.

IT marketers, please stop using "magic" when promoting solutions. It makes me stomach uneasy and I start to question the whole thing.

Automatically = Good
Automagically = 🤦‍♂️
By magic = 🤦‍♂️

To begin with, copying the font settings from Chrome made things more familiar to me.

Anyone recently switched from Chrome to Firefox?

What tweaks, addons and settings did you use to make it less of an awkward switch?
