En Paz…

At Peace

“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!”

Photonized: On-the-fly image resizer and optimizer

I’ve personally tested it on the large-scale websites under the high traffic (behind the CDN ofc) and it works quite well with the minimum configurations. So, you can consider as battle-tested.

The Tech and The Wealth It Creates

I made my appointment for the first dose of the BioNTech vaccine today, and (once again) I’m grateful that we are living in such a good time. When we look the past outbreaks, the development time of the vaccine is quite fascinating. And thankfully we have those technologies which make this happen.
