Picture by Mark Fletcher-Brown.
I’m Niklas and I study computer science.
I will use this website to write about the stuff that I (and hopefully you too) find interesting.
This contains, but is not limited to:
Because that’s what I like.
In my opinion, good almost directly translates to simple, adhering to the UNIX philosophy and avoiding bloat.
Technical tips and tricks I stumble across
This will be in terms of Linux, tiling window managers, vim, command line tools and similar stuff.
Because I can totally tell you what not to learn for your exams.
Seriously, I hope some other CS students will find it helpful when I write about courses I’ve already taken and exams I’ve already passed.
The blog system I currently use is really minimal, but that’s exactly what I want it to be.
It’s called lb and was originally written by Luke Smith in < 100 LOC of shell script (I must admit that his lines are pretty well utilized though).
I’ve already extended it quite a bit, e.g. to support writing articles in markdown (you can find my modifications here).
Note: By now I’ve switched to a script written by myself, which you can find here.
Today (technically yesterday), I rented a VPS for $1.25 per month and got a free domain to go with it.
Let’s see where this leads.
