Thanks to the high rate of vaccinations coupled with testing, a lot of outdoor activities are allowed here. So I went back to the football field..

It's been tough on the body 🤕 Did three weeks of gym and home workouts before playing games, but still not feeling fit. Especially with the knee injury that has just recovered on its own over the last year. Aches and pains all around

Anyway, I played defense in a friendly pickup game today. Tracked it on the watch too. I like that heat map!

🚀 Alright fedi gang, do your magic. Looking for a junior dev in the UTC+05:00 to UTC+08:00 timezone.

The company is a small biz, and isn't a total dumpster fire as far as treating you goes. I was quite pleasantly surprised, in fact. Fully remote.

They way he controls the ball and keeps possession is just unbelievable. Just doesn't attempt scoring too much, which is what is rewarded a lot in the big leagues, and instead creates space and opportunities

A good video on climate change, the science behind it, how certain are we and the problems of science and scientific reporting.

Beautifully made, quite sad though that it did not feature the role of the elite ruling classes and their capital around the world for making and worsening this disaster,

Planning to move away from namecheap hosting services. First year is good, but then it gets costly especially with the SSL certificate charges

Presenting a workshop on zoom is really difficult .. I miss all the training sessions and workshops from before the pandemic. Being the same room is so helpful

Saw a huge collection of Rodin sculptures today among other cool historical stuff from all over the world. Museums in the west are quite something.. How do they just acquire anything and everything?

Covid situation in India is unbelievable. I am angry, disgusted upset, heart broken and hopeless all at the same time.. This government and all its supporters are a bunch of horrible people - especially those who are privileged enough to have all kinds of access and still to choose to peddle disinformation and government propaganda

Linux commands manuals presented beautifully! This will be bookmarked for all the intros to chats/convos I find myself in.

I want to start posting to my blog. I like the idea of

With all the work though, everything personal takes a back seat :( haven't been gaming, playing football (thanks to covid), reading, or recording, or even gardening. Cooking, yes, that's unavoidable but fun thankfully.

How does one get into the habit of writing!! Also by the time I login to my blog, I get distracted by the many open tabs on the browser, that have pending work staring at me :ac_angry:
