By Lars on April 5th 2018

Bladerunner 2049 review

By Lars on November 11th 2017

A few weeks ago I saw the new Bladerunner movie. It was by far my most expensive trip to the cinema, as my bike was stolen while watching the movie. While that part was pretty bummer (imagine the feeling, when you’re leaving the cinema and looking for your bike just to realise it isn’t there) the movie was great. It’s …

SSL

By Lars on November 6th 2017

I just set up the site with SSL from LetsEncrypt. As I’m using UnoEuro as host, it was a pretty simple and straightforward process. I just enabled HTTPS in my UnoEuro account with the LetsEncrypt certificate, changed some URL’s in the WordPress configuration, made of couple of redirects and that’s it. That should make Google happy and make any visitors …

RTLSDR

By Lars on August 28th 2017

Some time ago, I read a thread on Reddit called “What are some great subreddits whose names cannot be found by searching their subject matter, making them hard to find on search?”. Other than being a fucking long title, it was also pretty interesting. What really piqued my interests was this post about RTLSDR, which essentially boils down to a …

Upon arriving, I discover there is a lottery, where you can win a turntable. I have long wanted a turntable, but I have never …

The woes of maintaining a blog / website

By Lars on March 20th 2017

So, 3 months into 2017 and I can already see a pattern forming. Good intentions and plans to write weekly and here I am, writing my second post this year. It’s not that I don’t want to write stuff. I really do and I enjoy the process. A lot. I think it’s just a question of forming a habit and …

2016 – A retrospective

By Lars on January 8th 2017

I haven’t really been active lately. My last post was back in September when I landed my new job and I’ve been pretty busy with it pretty much since then. 2016 have been a year with victories and defeats, ups and downs, highs and lows. If I have to sum it up, I have in 2016: Finished my education. Gotten …

New job! Finally!

By Lars on September 22nd 2016

New job After around 100 applications, a handful of job interviews, a course in PRINCE2, several weeks of part time work and 1 month long internship, I’ve finally gotten a job! To say I’m happy and relieved is an understatement. I have officially been unemployed for around 8 months, but I wouldn’t exactly say I have been idling away my …

Raspberry Pi 3 as a media-player

By Lars on August 21st 2016

I got a Raspberry Pi 3 model B the other day. I have been thinking about getting one for a long time, but never got around it before now. I was growing tired of using my laptop as a media-player and the RP3 seemed a perfect solution. I have always wanted to use it as a media-player, but the first …
