This Week I Learned - 2017 Week 20

Last week stuff or the previous posts.

The battlestation have been acting up this week again. Repeated restarts is getting old and rather annoying. Maybe it's a good time to sell it and build a new one instead, probably based on Ryzen. However, the next question to ask is do you want it or need it?

It was so simple that I was shaking my head wondering why it was never occurred to me before. Eating dinner at consistent times of the day will have significant impact on you, both physiological and psychological. Having your dinner before 7 p.m. seemed to have noticeable effects on my body weight and quality of sleep. This is one habit that I need to follow through.

#1 The Starfish Story. Everyone can make a difference in the world, no matter how small the change is. You just have to work fscking hard and stop being lazy. Or maybe taking the opposite approach instead? By adapting a minimalist lifestyle?

#2 While we have web proxy server, it seems that database system also have their own proxy server. For MySQL there are two popular DB proxy servers, ProxySQL and MaxScale. Sadly, I've never implement either one of them in actual production environment. Not everyone works with web scale system.

#3 nftables, iptables replacement. Installation procedure as follow.
$ sudo apt-get install nftables
$ nft --version
nftables v0.6 (Support Edward Snowden)

#4 Google I/O 2017. However, one of less obvious announcement that caught my attention is that the programming language Kotlin have been officially supported on Android. Steve Yegge's long post (HN and Reddit discussion) on the language, as usual, was an interesting read. Maybe it's a good time to start looking into long postponed Android development.

#5 How to start Web Development in 2017. The same old things repeated again and again but getting more and more complicated. Numerous technologies have been superseded by the core essential always remains the same.

#6 Michael W Lucas, interesting author who published both nonfiction and fictions books.
