Programming, Day 42

- Start doing 20 hours of VIM.
- Finish another Lutz chapter.

Will update progress by days’ end.

2pm. Got myself a VIM Anki deck.


  • Sadly no Lutz today.
  • Practiced Vim all day.
  • Finished Painless Vim.
  • Changed my theme.
  • Recomposed this post in Vim
  • Changed my terminal editor from code to vim, so that all new posts will now be “Vim Powered!”

Programming, Day 40

It’s been 40 days and somehow I don’t feel like I’ve come all that far.
Yet, I know the only way I can make progress is by taking small steps.
Two more chapters done from the Lutz book. Boy, is he thorough!
Will be reading about String Fundamentals today.

Also, ran across this inspirational post yesterday.
This along with Kushal’s (always generous) advice1 that I should start tinkering with stuff, makes me wonder if I should also do the #100DaysOfCode challenge, with Python.
After all, it seems to have done the trick for my writing.
I no longer have writers block :)

Will see if it is doable.
À bientôt!

Programming, Day 38

  1. Speed read the PYM book. Kushal covers a vast subject in a really compressed, yet concise way.
  2. Next up to speed read, Lutz’s Learning Python.
  3. Started using Vim as my primary editor. Trying to get fluent.

Programming, Day 31

  • Got back on the Python horse.
  • Using the PYM book to learn along, in the DGPLUG Summer Training.
  • Installed MU.
  • Hanging on for dear life and trying to follow along.

Programming, Day 30, Ansible

I finally got tired of rebuilding my servers from scratch everytime.
It hadn’t troubled me enough to do something about it, until recently.
I got myself a pc to do linux development on and I keep nuking the os and reinstalling.

Rebuilding it over and over was exciting in the beginning and then it sudddenly began to grate on my nerves.
