twitch scandal, life objective. 

We NEED to regain back control over our data and what we produce and share with the world.
I think I want to pursue this as a life objective, I've been thinking about this for the past few months, and these hints I've been seeing lately, like the twitch scandal, just makes me even more sure that this is the right thing to pursue. I already have some *vague* idea of the direction I want to takeand I will start moving towards the first objective soon. (2/2)

twitch scandal, life objective. 

Descentralization is the answer.
I am just thinking at the amount of data deleted from twitch - without previous warning to the users - due to copyright claims. This IS scary.
Think about all those memories, all those hours invested into making content... *puff*, gone. The irony and hipocrisy from Twitch that made a huge amount of money from ads from those same users, which now have their content deleted.

Everytime I look at the weather apps in NL I always remember the scene from Back To The Future 2, right after they land on the future and Doc precisely predicts that its gonna stop raining on the second by looking at his watch.

Daddy's cookin'for the family dinner today. Gonna cook these big bois after marinating them with soy sauce, mirin, sugar, roasted peanut oil and green onions. After marinating, I will pan fry them gonna serve them on top of white rice. I've been discovering and playing more with asiatic flavours lately to vary a bit from the mediterranic ones and been enjoying it very much so far! I am thinking on trying to cook some chashu and make proper tonkotsu ramen as soon as the days get a bit colder...

Making sure to soak up the last days of sun while discovering new things while walking through the forest.

Booked my 2021 vacations. Hope things are back to normal by then and we can enjoy some swimming, beach and recharge time.

As I continue my journey with Olympic Weightlifting after years of barely doing any demanding physical activity, I find that some parts of my body hurts constantly, depending on the training session.

Sometimes it hurts to lift my kids, sometimes to pick up something from the floor, other times just doing certain movements hurts.

I do see the improvements as I slowly feel stronger and can lift a tad bit heavier on my training sessions.

But damn, being constantly in pain is annoying.

Portuguese Covid tracking app rant 

How can one minimally trust that our privacy is secure when the government cannot even launch a wordpress site properly?

The Portuguese government wants somehow to show off that they are modern, by sharing the app code after much pressure, but they are constantly shooting themselves in the foot, they dont know how to deal with IT at a governmental level, and this shows, and makes me sad.

There have been lots of pushback as the code was also published and raised many many concerns over its security specially private data sharing with apple / google. You can see the issues raised on the official github of the app here:

I am now addicted to guanciale. Making every dish as an excuse to use this Italian delicacy.
