How I schedule post in Jekyll

4 minute read

The other day I was explaining how I publish my blog using CI. Today I want to explain how I schedule post in my blog while still involving CI.

How I publish my blog: Using Continuous Integration with Jekyll

9 minute read

As I’ve mentioned before, this blog is build as a static website with Jekyll, which allow me not to worry about data bases, logins or anything of the sorts when I’m publishing and managing the web. I use the free tier of GitHub Pages as hosting, which has its downsides and upsides. The main upside is, it’s really convenient and free. On the othe...

The Explorer with the People Mastery

16 minute read

A couple of posts ago —or perhaps a little bit more— I was briefly explaining about the results of a personality test I took while attending a course in Finland. In that test they told me I have a personality with a role of Explorer and a strategy of People Mastery. The role determines our goals, interests and preferred activities and the strate...

Testing the Dosdude1 patch to disable the dGPU on macOS

6 minute read

As you know, I have a problem on my vintage MacBook Pro late 2011 related to my dGPU. Basically it died :skull: at the end of 2017. So I have to find a patch to be able to continue use it, and I finally did in this way.

De-Facebooking

6 minute read

Today I was finally able to empty my Facebook :toilet: account. I totally deleted all my content, or at least the one I was able to delete, since not all the content is deletable. For example, you can’t delete the events you’ve been interested in, invited, or you have attended, or you can’t delete some of the pages you liked, because they aren’t...

New Web in Jekyll

3 minute read

As you probably have noticed, some days ago I rolled out a new version of my website, which you probably think it’s pretty similar to the previous one, at least talking about its external appearance. However, it’s really different in the inside, since it’s a static web build with Jekyll, while the previous one was build on Wordpress. This isn’t ...

16 Personalities: Apparently I’m an Entrepreneur

5 minute read

Not long ago, while I was taking a course in Finland, they asked us to take a personality test online called 16 personalities. It wasn’t nothing really official or for much purpose of scrutinize us, but just to know ourselves a little bit more and we can work our strengths and weakness. To my surprise, the test told me that I have an entrepreneu...

The ciabatta recipe

4 minute read

Lately I’ve been extending my baking skills and I’ve been practicing the ciabatta recipe from Iban Yarza’s book, Pan Casero, which I think is delicious. I say extending my baking skills because it’s the first time I’ve tried a preferment recipe and more specifically poolish. Poolish have zero complications in comparison with the straight doughs,...

MBP wakes up from sleep to back screen

9 minute read

As you know, I have had problems with my old MacBook Pro Late 2011 and its dGPU which I’ve been able to patch to make the computer work again. In the beginning, the side effect of the fix was not to be able to wake up properly the Mac from sleep mode. The computer woke up to a black or grey screen and the fans started to work at full speed to fi...

Update Monday, 26th of March: Almost the next day or the following day I published this post KyngChaos just published the QGIS 3 release for macOS. You can download here.

Sunsets in the land of the magic light

2 minute read

Yesterday I was wandering with my car… warming it up, when I notice one of the most incredible sunsets I’ve ever seen in ages, between the trees in the south side of the road. I tried to think quickly where I could get a better look of the Sun and I finally came out with the perfect place where I can get a really nice view, fast and without eve ...

Convert your Pi in an AirPlay receiver

4 minute read

I recently needed to convert my Raspberry Pi 3 into a AirPlay receiver because I didn’t have any of my AirPort Express at hand and I wanted to play just music —not the entire collection of sounds my computer produce— on one of my old Hi-Fi Self Stereo System. So I searched on the internet and saw that it was totally possible to do it and I try i...

Disconnecting the dGPU in a late 2011 MacBook Pro —third way

8 minute read

Update 2017.12.12-14.20 EET: whether or not I use the AMDGPUWakeHandler and whether I sleep or hibernate I can’t wake up of the hibernation/sleep. Depending on if I have AMDGPUWakeHandler on or off I get different outputs, but none of those end in a successful wakeup.

My MacBook Pro late 2011’s discrete graphics card said “ciao” 👋🏻 —again

17 minute read

Last Sunday wasn’t really a pleasant day. On Saturday late night, or rather around Sunday 00.30 am, my MacBook Pro late 2011’s discrete graphic card begin to fail to in the end not being able to boot it properly. The computer was working just fine, it wasn’t even using the discrete card, connected to the external screen as I’ve been doing lately...

First Heavy Snowfall

2 minute read

Last Sunday we had the first heavy snowfall of this winter season in Joensuu. As you can see in the photos in flickr gallery below, the landscape was really wonderful… quite like a postcard. Olalla and I decided to go outside after our late brunch and take a walk over the fresh snow to shoot some photos. It was a quite nice walk, also rather col...

About baking stones

4 minute read

As I promised, here is a small note about my experience using baking stones and some things I think you should take into account if you decide to use one.

Pizza recipe

9 minute read

Since it’s Sunday let’s have some pizza for dinner. Here is the pizza recipe I usually make at home, and what I would call our standard pizza. It’s really rare that we don’t bake one once per week or at least two weeks.

My bread recipe

2 minute read

Ok… as I promised in my previous post, here it’s my bread recipe for straight dough. I’m not going to fully explain the techniques, since they are already explained in the earlier post. There, you can also find what tools you need and, in case you want to change the ingredients quantities, the tables for bread and pizza.

The preliminaries for bread and pizza making

27 minute read

When I started to write this post, it was going to be just my bread recipe, as promised in my previous post. However, as I dug down little my little explaining the basics of bread making, I realize that I’d be better to make a post just explaining the basic of bread and pizza making and then in two other different post explain the recipes. Again...

The bread story

6 minute read

Anyone close to me, or that’s been hanging out with me for a while, knows that I’m a bakery enthusiast. Ok, perhaps I’m not an enthusiast, but let’s say just an aficionado that like to bake bread and pizza from time to time. This hobby started basically when we arrived to Finland and we brought with us a bread machine that a friend gifted to us....

Backing up your Pi’s SD card

3 minute read

I’ve been trying make something work in my Pi, but so far I’ve just messing things up and I had to install Raspbian a couple of times from scratch. For that reason I’ve decided to make a copy of the SD card before I repeat the process and try to figure out what is going on.

Jääkarhut

6 minute read

Yesterday was the first time in while I’ve been in Jääkarhut. It’s a really especial place and quite singular, or at least it’s what I’ve been told. It’s really true that at least the scenery, if the weather is favorable (I don’t mean necessarily sunny), it’s really awe and jaw-droping, as you can see in the header image of the post or in the im...

Blade Runner

5 minute read

Last Friday, it was the World Premiere for Blade Runner 2049 so we decided to rewatch the 2019 one on Friday night to have all the details fresh and on Saturday go to watch the continuation of the story thirty years later on our local cinema here in Joensuu. I decided to watch the 2D version because I don’t see the point of paying a plus for som...

Back to Joensuu

3 minute read

More or less a month ago we came back from US to Finland. There is no so much to tell about his, but just that the return has been a little bit hard. We returned to an apartment that we have to set in motion again after we were 5 month away. And we have to battle the jet-lag, that it’s really something when you return from US to Europe. For me i...

First blog post

This is my very blog post… this post should’ve been a way earlier than it is being, but life is as it is.
