Back on January 22, 2010, I started this blog - time sure flies when you are having fun! I didn’t even join college back then, and I already wanted to share the little knowledge and tips I had with the world. Ubuntu Karmic Koala was recently released, and I was fiddling with it overwriting my MBR, ruining my n-th Windows 7 installation. Back then, my dream was to one day work at Microsoft - a pretty far shot from someone coming from the part of the world I’m from.
I love infrastructure and anything that has to do with it. That is - I love tinkering with different services and see what I can do to make them play nice with each other. I also like being efficient with what and how I deploy, and recently something dawned on my - I am spending way too much money on hosting my personal blog, that is 90% text. A recent analysis brought me to the number: 30$/mo.
There comes a time when one needs to re-assess how and what they are using for their blog software. For years, I have been an avid WordPress user, jumping from shared hosting to shared hosting in search for a good deal, but always encountered issues - there was either little room to customize things, or I had to deal with the ever-growing bloat of a large code base for a little site.
Today, I am excited to show you my new blog. I finally got my hands on a custom WordPress setup (the free one was way too limited for me at this point), so I am happy I can add so many interesting features. What is this blog going to be about? Well, it will mostly be about software development (as well as software in general) and some of my interests (especially technology).
