getting started with Hyper-V

Don't get me wrong, I love Linux. It's the perfect environment for development. The problem is having to deal with hardware support on bleeding-edge hardware. When Apple decides to release a MacBook 13" with 32GB of RAM and a decent GPU, without leaving you bankrupt, I might reconsider it, but for now, I feel like…

my coffee setup

Before moving to the US, I've passed all my coffee gear to a very dear friend. After some research, I've settled on: coffee gear Kalita Wave is my new dripper - While I still love my Hario V60, the Kalita is way more forgiving and yields me better extraction overall.

isolating linux environments

One of the most annoying things I've had using the same machine for work and personal purposes is how the environments can get mixed up. Someone sends you a link on the corporate slack, you click the link and BOOM - it appears on the personal Google Chrome instance - which means I have to…

Bleeding-edge kernel, constant updates, and a situation where in one way or another I would be stressing over kernel updates, wondering if that new version would improve things or just…

This was enough for me to be scared of doing it and avoiding, even if it was one of my favorite dishes. Irrational fear that I've had to…

a new beginning

  Usually, striking items from your bucket list is pretty simple, but this time it was completely different. Moving abroad was a dream of mine since I was very young and at the same time something that looked like almost impossible to happen. And here I am, with my family, almost wrapping up our first…

the astonishing review

I've been enjoying Dream Theater's last release entitled The Astonishing since its release, this late January. After listening to it at least 20 times, I can say for sure that this is one of my all-time favorite Dream Theater albums. The combination of a cohesive story, with kick-ass orchestration and chorus, really resonates with me.…
