Dublin worst for housing

1 month ago, for day 15 by Bartosz Łęcki 🏆

I saw an article from IrishTimes describing ranking about best and worst cities to live. Dublin was voted as the worst city in terms of housing and property rental. It was elected as even worse than San Francisco. On the other hand, voters were expats, and I guess that expats...

Today my computer rejected my will to work, and various stuff broke on multiple occasions. My system restarted without any notice, my terminal did hang and even after force kill it still was not responsive when run again. Restarting, which is the usual way of fixing things in modern computers,...


1 month ago, for day 12 by Bartosz Łęcki 🏆

One of this year goals we took together with my wife is to travel somewhere each month. We will visit a lot inside Ireland since it's cheaper, faster and easier to take a train somewhere than go to the airport, fly, get from the destination airport to the hotel and...

Way out

1 month ago, for day 11 by Bartosz Łęcki 🏆

Today, for the very first weekend this year, we stayed home and were lazy as much as it's possible. We watched some Netflix, I played some Witcher 3 since I want to complete it for the fourth time or so after watching the series. We also played together with my...

Commute time included in work?

1 month ago, for day 9 by Bartosz Łęcki 🏆

Jason Fried, a co-founder of Basecamp, started answering questions on Twitter recently. It's a neat format of asynchronous Q&A (I wonder now, could this format be used also for All Hands Q&A at our company?). There was recently [a question about where commute time should be put if the day...

Now that could be a clickbaity title if I would mean that I separate with my wife, but I rather talk about the separation of chinchillas. The youngest one was overly abusive in his love towards his companion. We found out that the second in hierarchy lost a lot of...

11 more to go

1 month ago, for day 7 by Bartosz Łęcki 🏆

I'm still sick at home, so I didn't do much apart from taking medication and laying around. I was reading most of the day today, and I finished one of twelve books from my Goodreads challenge, so there are only eleven more to go. I want to finish reading the...


1 month ago, for day 6 by Bartosz Łęcki 🏆

I woke up and told my team that I will work from home today, but after an hour, I decided to take a day off after all. I'm not very sick since I can somehow function but thinking about code isn't a thing my brain is willing to do. Another...

Under the weather

1 month ago, for day 5 by Bartosz Łęcki 🏆

We just got back to Dublin from London. Since we had flight from London Stansted airport — which is around 50 kilometres from London itself for those who don't know — we didn't have much time today to do anything. I also woke up feeling a little bit under the...

Harry Potter Studio

1 month ago, for day 4 by Bartosz Łęcki 🏆

Today we visited original site where all of eight Harry Potter movies were recorded. It’s a couple of kilometers under London but it seems to be more accessible with public transport than some places in Dublin. We had to take a bus, a metro, a train and then one more...
