Happy 20th birthday, WordPress. We’ve known each other since around 2008, and I’ve been contributing in some way since 2011. Even though my contributions are often tiny, like a drop in the ocean, thank you for giving me the opportunity to contribute to 43% of the web.Continue reading “Happy 20th birthday WordPress!”
Yesterday I’ve upgraded one of my servers that is running on Ubuntu 18.04; since it’s reaching EOL it’s better to perform timely updates.

Electricity is one of the fundamental things that ruin your day immediately when it’s absent. I feel like back in the stone ages, far away from civilization and completely useless. Since I live in a small town, it’s more annoying because power cuts happen quite often.

“Very close to my sundown, I bless you, life
because you never gave me false hope,
nor unjust work, nor undeserved punishment;
because I see at the end of my rough path
that I was the architect of my own destiny;
if I extracted the sweetness or bitterness of things,
It was because I put bitterness and sweetness into them,
when I planted rose bushes, I always reaped roses.
Surely, winter will follow my vim and vigor:
But you never told me that May would last forever!”
I found without a doubt the nights long with my sorrows;
but you didn’t promise me just good nights;
and instead, I had some blessed and serene [nights]…
I loved, I was loved, the sun caressed my face
Life, you owe me nothing! Life, we are at peace!”
