I went up to Uludağ by gondola lift yesterday. The scenery was simply stunning. Pics really don't do it justice.

Today, I've been to Polonezköy/Adampol, a historic Polish settlement in rural Istanbul.
Disappointingly, there wasn't much to see. It seems the village all but eroded away in the last few decades as its population dwindled, and left its place to a bunch tourist traps.
The only two things of interest (the church and a glass workshop) were closed due to holiday.
I managed to find something interesting though: A mosaic on the wall of the glass workshop depicting glassblowers at work.

I uninstalled this last month and decided to install it back today...

I found my old CD binders (four of them!) at my parents' place. Feels nostalgic to find CDs of games I spent much of my childhood playing. 😸

I got so bored that I spent an hour configuring XCalc even though I don't use it. It looks pretty now.

I should work as a UX consultant at Fisher-Price.

What the hell? I bought an e-book on Kobo.com last week and today I received an e-mail from Amazon.com for the first time in nearly a year, recommending me two books from the same author.

I would like to thank fontconfig for rendering 'ffl' as a ligature in the middle of monospace text.

Although I appreciate that 'ffl' itself is fixed width.

I named it Gophwr after a friend's typo. 😸

It's a bit haphazardly put together in less than two days, but it works. Sorta kinda. I promise I'll clean it up soon.

I like /usr/pkg/bin/cal more than /usr/bin/cal since it's got reminders and all.
I used Debian's patches to build and install it on my Arch desktop.
