Hi all! My name is Nils and i'm a mechanical engineer student form germany. I just started to blog on nilsschulte.de because of Drew's postings. It'll probably be mostly about DIY-electronic like home automation. Nils
Hello, My name is Stone and I'm working part time as a web developer to pay the bills. I certainly don't enjoy it though, I really prefer the most efficient software I can find/make. Most of my free time is spent on various projects which may or may not be interesting/useful to other people. Anyways, my quest for simplicity naturally led me to Drew's blog, and about a year later I decided to try out blogging myself. Mostly I plan to write about my aforementioned projects, but I might post something else. My blog is here: https://mochiro.moe Thanks, Stone

> My blog is here: https://mochiro.moe Oh, I saw this when Drew posted it on fedi. Really nice design both this one and the Hello Japan blog. Did you use Zola to build both of them? How was your experience with it? -- Leo
> If it was your choice, what kind of project would you work on full time? Well, thats a hard question to answer. I would be happy working on basically anything that presents a reasonably difficult problem that can be cleanly solved. Usually being a web developer precludes this since anything involving web technologies can't really be called a clean solution. I usually just invent problems to solve, and sometimes while I'm solving those problems, I discover even better problems and move on to those, et cetera. So much stuff is just yak shaving, if I think too hard about it I start questioning whether computers are even beneficial to society, or if we programmers just keep inventing problems so we can have stuff to work on.
