• Spotify now has support for ⌘+K just like Slack etc.

    Using Command + K (or Control+K on windows) has become so commonplace that even some web apps now use it and today, I was pleasantly surprised to discover this in Spotify. It’s not great yet but I believe it might improve with time Above is a search for “liked” and I thought my Liked songs […]

  • Updating my homepage to make things as simple as possible

    I used to have a very simple homepage before 2022. Below is a screenshot of it: I liked this version long enough to keep it around for almost 4 years. But there was an itch earlier this year to redo my homepage. I felt like my homepage was kinda boring but maybe I was just […]

  • Thoughts on the Keychron Q8 (Alice layout)

    The recently released Keychron Q8 was on my radar for awhile. As most mechanical keyboard enthusiasts, I also suffer from never acquiring the endgame. This one is definitely nowhere close to endgame but it was a nice little stint to try out. I wanted to try the Alice layout (the two spacebars, slightly angled layout) […]

  • Playing around with DALL·E 2

    Earlier today, I got access to play around with OpenAI’s DALL·E 2, it’s a system to generate images in almost anything imaginable by taking in text input and generating a few variations of it. The more descriptive your prompt for the art, the more likely it will get the details. I’m going to use this […]

  • North, or some reflections on sitting and staring at things in my office

    Whenever I listen to “North” by Phoenix, I’m reminded of sitting at my doctor’s office, the quietness only filled with an instrumental that builds and builds until a howl. Right now, I’m sitting listening to it and it’s on my “Upside Down” playlist created by Spotify. And at times like this, I think to myself, […]

  • Finding a good theme for a WordPress blog is hard

    I’ve been looking around for a decent theme for the whole time I’ve had this WordPress blog. I’m experiencing a strong case of analysis paralysis, there are so many themes available for WordPress but also there’s a huge hole in the themes available. Most theme authors/creators market their themes as being very design heavy and […]

  • Dave Van Ronk Sings

    A few days ago, I got the Van Ronk Sings the Blues record in the mail. It’s a collection of some of Dave Van Ronk songs that he covered. These are just raw American folk songs sang in his unique style. If you haven’t seen Inside Llewynn Davis, I highly recommend checking it out. It’s […]

  • Too much of SPOF

    SPOF: Single point of failure. I know the title of this post is grammatically incorrect but bear with me. I had an annoying issue pop up today. My blog stopped responding to all requests without any changes from me. At first I thought it might be related to digital ocean’s downtime but then that was […]

  • Keychron V1 is out, pre-built knob version for $84

    This is a nice looking keyboard. If I wasn’t typing this post from a GMMK Pro which is essentially the same board as the V1 but 3× the price, I’d probably just get one of these boards. Direct link to the keyboard: https://www.keychron.com/products/keychron-v1-qmk-via-custom-mechanical-keyboard

  • Keychron’s Q1 vs V1

    So I was browsing the Keychron website today and I noticed that there’s yet another 75% keyboard called the V1. It’s launching soon and there’s no info on price yet. The marketing page says it will launch in July, 2022. It’s very similar to the Q1 but there are a few differences. Below are both […]
