This Week I Learned - 2016 Week 04

In case you miss out, last week post.

#1 Shōwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjū (official site). Caught my attention with its unique and mature story line. Definitely way different from the regular shounen action anime. Basically a story about the journey of an apprentice rakugo storyteller. The fast paced dialogues and art style reminded me of The Tatami Galaxy (Reddit discussion).

#2 Mobile Suit Gundam: The Origin (official site). Probably the next anime series I like after the Mobile Suit Gundam: The 08th MS Team in Gundam franchise. Love the old school animation and original characters design. For some amusement, there is a good discussion on the worse Gundam protagonist.

#3 Social media friends are mostly fake (Reddit discussion). Agree with one of the comment. There is a distinctive difference between a contact and real friends. You should treat all social network as contact list for networking purpose, nothing more and nothing less. Real friends should be interacted through physical life.

#4 Empanada. So this is "Mat Salleh" (Portuguese to be exact) name for Malaysia snack called "karipap" or "curry puff". Knowing this makes me craving for the Empanada, especially those large one with filling of sweet potatoes, chicken meat, and curry spice.

#5 The Bookbinder. Remember before you submit your final thesis or dissertation you need to bind it with fabric or fake leather cover and gold foil lettering or seal? The video illustrates the step-by-step process to do it.

#6 How to create and apply patch in Git. Till today, I still can't remember how to do it properly.

#7 Conversational Commerce (HN discussion). I've noticed that the Social Network is slowly being replaced by Social Messaging. Are we going to the days where ICQ/AIM and IRC were once popular?

#8 PostgreSQL Query Plan Visualization (HN discussion). The most aesthetic visualization of PostgreSQL's execution plan for a SQL statement through the EXPLAIN command (more explanation on its usage). Which is also inspired by another tool explain.depesz.com. Unfortunately both are web-based tool where sometimes not applicable if you've sensitive SQL queries that should remain confidential.
