Yesterday Molly de Blanc and Karen M. Sandler released the first draft on the Declaration of Digital Autonomy. This is a big deal. I learned that they were working on this manifesto during 2020’s GUADEC event. I think this is an instrumental cause to fight for our freedom, so I decided to contribute to it providing a translation of the document to the Catalan language. Also, I am a Catalan/Spanish bilingual, so the Spanish translation may come soon after.
Recently I had to install XHGui in my local environment to profile my PHP application. My goal was to have an easy way to compare two different executions of my request, one with my optimizations , and one without them. In this post I will show how my setup works.
Christian (@penyaskito) is a dear friend of mine. I talk to him every day (usually text), but I have never blogged for him. This post should fix that.
Many enterprises use Drupal for the flexibility it offers. This comes at a cost, every Drupal site is very different from each other. Patterns emerge that are not reused or standarized across different projects.
During the past years I have changed my digital habits quite a lot. I have deleted many of the services that I happily used in the past. These include LinkedIn, Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, Meetup, and many more. Most of those I have never missed, but some of them are so ubiquitous they are hard to avoid.
Yesterday I changed my default system font from Ubuntu to Inter (which I had to download first), and my Ubuntu 20.04 has a more polished feel somehow. It’s not a huge change, but one in the right direction for my taste. See for yourself below.
I have been experiencing significant slowness in my webcam using cheese. I have moved to Guvcview now, and I am very happy with the move.
Almost a year ago I started a private video blog project. I sit in front of the camera and address to my kids as if they were watching this in the future. In these videos I tell them all the fun things we have done throughout the previous day. My goal is for the three of us to have a record of how happy their toddler years were.
This is the third video of the series on Free Software alternatives to popular services that business often use.
A couple of weeks ago my 1 year old daughter broke my headset. I had to wear it with tape and it would catch in my hair all the time, so I decided to get a new pair. After doing my research I settled with the SteelSeries Arctics 7 headset.
I have recorded a video tutorial highlighting some of the features of a module I created for Drupal recently. This is the Entity Reference Preview Drupal module.
