Day Log #1

Just wanted a place to dump everything that was on my mind today. History A few months ago, maybe a year (almost a year) I had tried to create a SPA using create-react-app for a legacy PHP application that runs on Laravel 4.2. The idea was to create a clean API layer on top of everything to manipulate the content from the database. I wanted to standardize/transform the…

Thinking of expanding my home/office network with old routers

This idea has been on my mind for a few weeks now. I have four different old routers that support Wireless G. My current network setup has two different Wireless N capable routers. I have two SSIDs that both work on a 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands. I have noticed that I have a few dead spots around the house which I frequently occupy. So my idea was to reuse…

I bought a bed

I bought a bed

This would be funny if it wasn't tragic. I have finally on a request from my girlfriend bought myself a bed. In fact, I haven't slept on (had) a bed for eight years now. History I had a couch in Zagreb that I would sleep on. When I moved back to Murter I bought myself another couch which had a mattress that would slide out of it. At the start…

He said that he is at home with Daria and that I come to their place for a drink. To come to their place I had to climb up the…

Meet Sirius Black

Meet Sirius Black

It never occurred to me to get a bunny. When thinking of pets it's always dogs, cats, parrots or hamsters. Since Kristina (my girlfriend) works at an aquarium/terrarium I get to hang out there a lot with the animals. I've grown fond of the squirrels. She opens their cage and picks them up one by one. They are fun to be around. One of the squirrels was pregnant and…

Firefox 54.0 vs Chrome 59.0

Firefox 54.0 vs Chrome 59.0

This is not a technical comparison, but more a comparison from a everyday user perspective. For a long time I have been a Google Chrome user. A couple of times I have tried to switch browsers just to see if I am missing on something. I have tried Vivaldi, Edge and Firefox developer edition. This time I have installed Firefox 54.0, the latest release which comes with multi-process architecture.…

How I Finally Wrote my Graduation Thesis

How I Finally Wrote my Graduation Thesis

One month ago, my brother Paulo came to Murter. Among other things we went running as we sometimes do... The next day he asked me if he could use my room to write his graduation thesis. He needed a quiet place to write, so I said no problem. We just had lunch so I decided to relax on the couch and watch a TV show or two. He suggested that…
