A senior dev just told me two CLI commands in a row make up for "quite some shell magic".

Nothing more relative than magic, I suppose.

@fredl99 cool stuff, I admit I've never heard it before. I'm not *that* young either, turntables were still around and there was quite some vinyl in my house (Pink Floyd, Phil Collins and Bob Marley between my favourites back then) but when the CD player arrived (as big and heavy as a small luggage) Oxygene kind of stole the scene

@fredl99 I said I believe because I was too young so I can't pinpoint something like that very precisely, probably I was 3 or 4 years old at that point, hard to say for sure.

Thanks for the recommendations by the way, I'll dig into those soon enough.

@fredl99 I'm sure that's not been day 1 for electronic music, just my personal one

If I'd have to pin down exactly when my love for electronic music got started, I believe it goes back to the early '80s, that first time Oxygene CD sneaked into our home player.

A musical point of no return.


I've got back some nice craving for good ol' classic SciFi.

Vue 3 is going to be released soon and I wanted to see how easy it is to create the simples possible useful application with it. It turns out it's pretty easy with vue-cli and serverless tools! Here I share my findings.


"And that girl with no name, over there in Braavos."

Oh boy, only the gods know how much I'm looking forward news about that "no one" over there.

I love how Serverless enables simple solutions to common DevOps tasks: in this article I describe one simple way to automate MongoDB database backups using AWS Fargate, S3, and CDK.


Cercle's YouTube channel is a pot of gold

N'to live @ Tour Saint-Jacques in Paris


A few minutes ago four individuals, fully dressed in black, face covered, swiftly occupied the apartment next to mine.
Two of them appeared to be adult and two juvenile.
A reminder of my indecision about which kind of outfit is the most intimidating between:
- burka
- SWAT team
- SS official
- Pennywise the clown
- Boba Fett / Mandalorian
