Running your own git server.

02.09.2018 02:00

To run your own git server is very easy, and it doesn’t require any extra software. If you want something a little bit more fancy like a web interface or collaboration you will need more setup. But when you just need a second location for all your private projects you just need a machine with SSH.

A git repo can exist in two different variants, either as a full repo or as a so called bare repo. A bare repo is the repo without a working copy.

The way I host my own git repos is that I have a folder called GIT in my home directory on my Linode. In there I have all my private repos. You just use the –bare parameter when you create them, and use user@hostname:/home/user/GIT/name to clone them.

I think it works great for all of the repos that you don’t work with others on, and just want to have somewhere remote.

I first played this game on iOS, then I bought it again when I got my Switch.

It is beautiful and great. It is kind of a side scroller meats puzzle game. There are probably a whole category for it that I don’t know the name for.

This is not an easy game, and it is great, but a little bit more on the frustrating side than I prefer.

My history of pocket pens

31.08.2018 10:00

I have always had a pen or a pencil in my pocket, or at least for as long as I can remember.

  1. Pilot G2
  2. Retro 51
  3. Pilot Metropolitan
  4. TWSBI Eco
  5. Pencils
  6. Fisher Spacepen.

Let me preface this with what I have concluded with being a good pocket pen, and this is not the same as a “mini pen”. A lot of people prefer a smaller pen as their pocket pen. I’m not one of them. Because my pants have larger pockets.

  • It should have a cap, because retractable pens often get a lot of shit inside it, that can cause some mess like it soaking up a lot of ink. And sometimes you twist / click the mechanism that can destroy pants.
  • It should be low maintenance. We all have many writing instruments that require a lot of up keep, like fountain pens or pencils. The thing I have in my pocket should be something that always works
  • The cap should be tight enough for you to trust that it won’t come off
  • THe construction should be solid enough so that you don’t feel it will break.

Of the items on the list above, I personally have only been happy with the Pilot Metropolitan fountain pen and the Spacepen. None of them are perfect, but both of them are built in a way where I can trust that they never spill ink in my pants. The Metropolitan required a little bit too much up keep (aka too low ink capacity) and the Spacepen refill is not my favourite. But I might try to replace it with a Retro 51 refill, or something similar.

Splatoon 2

This game is so good. I love it so much. It is my favourite game on the Switch. I love how goofy the paintball thing is. And nobody would confuse it for anything that tries to make war or guns to look cool or attractive. I’m not even going to try to explain the game, you should just get it. What I love about it is that it is just the right amount of frustrating. But it is never so hard that I feel like putting it away and playing something else.

I have not, since I got it had anything else open on my Switch.
