So, uh... #GiveUpGitHub

I knew I had to give it up when I started #interpeer. Went with GitLab instead as the lesser of the major evils.

Now we're fully on @codeberg , since a small number of months ago.

Way ahead of the curve, it seems.

The conclusion I draw from that:

- Always keep a bit of time for oneself, despite all the pressures around
- Be active is important. It could be just a walk, but going out regularly helps dealing with things.
- It might be not universal but it's worth a tr. At the very least you would probably had done something useful for your physical health, which is already something.

In the process, I've seen my heart rate at rest to go down from ~55 bpm to ~47bpm which means I am probably fitter than I was 6 monts ago.

I've also lost a few kilos in the process. I think I have lost about 4 kg, but my BMI was already OK, so that wasn't a main objective for me.

But the most important, is that it really helped with my mental health. After a three rough years, I start to feel better. My sleep also improved.

Today marks the half-way through the year. After having had a few musculoskeletal injuries on the past years, I decided to take my heath back in hands in January. In fact, I even started last July, but this is really in January that I decided to really take the time to exercise and go out more.

Here are a few metrics:

- Close to 1.1 millions steps, or 960 km
- Of which, 330km of running activities
- 1,900 km cycling, including both commute and "proper" road cycling.


When you're about to go to sleep and you see that you left your pillow in your car...😩

Rammstein at Coventry Arena. Stadium is filling pretty fast... The show starts in one and half hour.

- What's your excuse for turning up late today?
- Traffic jam.
- Aren't you a cyclist?
- Yes...
- I swear, cycling road 51 was jam packed with cows this morning.

The said programs is scheduled with cron when deployed but as I needed to run it occasionally on my machine, using at was more convenient than setting up a cron job.

I recently discovered a nice little command: at

Apparently quite well known, except for me. Its purpose is to schedule a job at a specific time, hence its name. Pretty simple to use:

$ echo "some-command" | at 3 pm

and it'll run the said command at 3pm. More examples here:

I came to know it as I had to run for troubleshooting on my dev machine a job that needs to operate at a specific time window.

I don't know if 42 is the answer but my heart rate went down to an all time low last night!
