7 Things This Week #2
A weekly list of interesting things I found on the internet & lived, posted on Monday’s
- This week, we moved to a new home 🏡. Although it is not entirely new, it has been partly rebuilt and renewed enough to be considered a “new” home. The environment is much quieter here, and the air is less dusty. Besides, this new place is only one minute away from our former home, which is located at the road-side (NH).
- If you at some point run out of ideas for your next blog post, this list on What to Blog About When You Don’t Know What to Blog About will surely help you to get on the track.
- Another deep dive into the concepts of git branches: intuition & reality by Julia Evans. I have saved it for later read as I am reading Your Linux Toolbox by Julia at the moment, which is a compilation of dozen of her zines actually.
- You can join an international #ReadPalestine week, starting Wednesday, November 29, on the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. During this week, people around the world aim to read fiction and poetry by Palestinian and Palestinian diaspora authors, as well as nonfiction about Palestinian history, politics, arts, culture, and life, as well as books about organizing, resistance, and solidarity for a Free Palestine.
- I purchased first book from AMO Publication in hardcover, titled “Tehreerat e Luqman” by Qari Luqman Shahid, written in Urdu. I have already read its ebook and found it to be so good that I decided to buy it in hardcover. I also wanted to support author & the publication house for their work.
- I came across a great cloud file transfer app for macOS recently called Transmit. It supports 11 cloud services as mounts, including the classic FTP, SFTP & WebDAV. Additionally, it features sync between remotes which is something I am particularly interested in. I have only been playing around with it for few hours, but already like it. Although rlcone has always been my first choice for managing remote cloud storage.
- This week on the recommendation of a friend I watched The Railway Men. The show is about the events surrounding the Bhopal Gas Tragedy of 1984 and primarily focuses on the role of railway workers in saving thousands of lives during the disaster. This four-episode mini-series is thrilling and can be compared to The Chernobyl.
Closing with a quote:
