Dealing with double _main in the Fortran code

From time to time it happens that you are forced to work with legacy code. This code might have _main already defined inside. This may happen in case you are trying to link two object files, both, defining _main function. There is hope! Let’s say we have a code (legacy one) And now, we are […]

And Now for Something Completely Different – Kotlin Developer track

Finishing it took some time, but was definitely worth it :) I will take the opportunity to write a short review of the whole learning path. I think that most important question raised by newcomers is – was it worth the time and effort? Well, based on the fact that this learning path is related […]

Data backups – dedicated solution vs. home made server

Some years ago (~10) I was puzzled by the choice between dedicated backup machine (something like one describe here: QNAP TS-231P – rok i trzy fackupy później (na szczęście z happy endem)) vs. my own setup. There are advantages of dedicated backup solutions (so called NASes). These machines have close to zero configuration setup, look […]

Google Cloud Platform vs. recent stuff vs. refurbished machine

Recently, I have received “the very first time GCP client” offer from Google. I assume that all the people get this initial credit so they can test GCP based services. For me this was an obvious sign – how will it perform with Minecraft installed. To be honest, I was positively surprised. Setting everything up […]

JetBrains academy – Kotlin – this one was tough ;)

So, I eventually stepped on Seam Carving in JetBrains Academy – Kotlin. This one was tough ;) And, to be honest, mostly due to my ignorance. As I had Algorithms and Data Structures lecture during my studies – to be honest, I have been teaching Algorithms and Data Structures in C++ for one semester at […]

The story of my new 47 PB hard drive

At some point, my Time Machine started to complain that there is no enough space to make a complete backup of my disk When I tried to figure out what was happening, it turned out that my $HOME was the place that occupied most of the space. I have tried to use typical approach to […]

Blade Runner

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. SVN repos so big they didn’t fit on SSD. I watched spaces glitter among the dark tabs of Python. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain. Time to code using new hype.

macOS – remember to check hard drives for errors

It looks like my macOS got little bit too optimistic when it comes to size of my 500GB hard drive :) It started to complain that Time Machine couldn’t complete the backup. If you have similar issue, make sure to run diagnostic of your hard drive

JetBrains Academy – or how to have fun while learning new stuff

I have already mentioned on the blog that I have started my adventure with JetBrains Academy. I am pursuing my knowledge of Kotlin, and the whole process goes pretty well. What I like most in JetBrains’ Academy way of setting goals is that you are dealing with real applications. Applications that do something. For example, […]
