Updating my blogroll
11 June 2024 | 8:32 pm

Many bloggers recently gave more context to their blogroll. Some people did change the way of displaying blogs they follow, some added description, and some just removed all dead links.

It was on my to-do list for a while, and I finally updated it.

I tried to do a mix of all that without changing it too much.

You can check it here.

Subscene is gone
4 June 2024 | 6:16 am

TIL that www.subscene.com, a website to get subtitles for your movies or tvshows, is gone.

I remember using it from time to time.

A whois shows that the domain name has been around for a while:


 Updated Date: 2023-10-25T07:53:40Z
 Creation Date: 2001-11-24T10:55:29Z
 Registry Expiry Date: 2024-11-24T10:55:29Z

It will expire at the end of this year though.

I’m wondering why did they stop. There is nothing on the page except this message:

Subscene is closed

Thank you all for a great journey.

Wonder what to watch next, try watchpedia.com a full guide of all streaming services.

It is still possible to access our own account at u.subscene.com for some time.

Those who had accounts can probably log in until the end of the year when the domain will expire.

May 2024
1 June 2024 | 12:30 am

May is gone, but I love that the summer is almost there. More time at the beach 😅.

May was also the month of the #WeblogPoMo2024 challenge.

And, even if I haven’t been posting every day, I was close to finish it (25/31). But, like Joel wrote, quoting the challenge’s website:

You will post as much as you can, ideally daily, but we all have lives, so go easy on yourself. This is meant to be fun!

I could have probably completed it, but it wasn’t my priority.

Hence, my failure. But, It was fun, indeed.

Podcasts

“The Spy who” was my favourite podcast of the month. If you like History, and spies stories, you have to listen to this one.

A good friend has a podcast about Basketballs. I didn’t know about it before this month, because he started it the same year when I left France. That was a nice discovery.

Articles - Blog posts

Not many links this month, but many about privacy, and AI. They really want to put that crap everywhere!

Security / Privacy / AI

Fuck AI, and big tech companies!

BSD
Internet
CLI and tools

Movies - TV Show

Here’s how I rate them.

Ninja Kamui - 2024

Finished the season, and some episodes weren’t as good as others. The fact that it’s only 20 minutes, I didn’t care. Not sure, I’ll watch another season though.

Foundation

Finally, I finished the last episode of the first season of Foundation. The final episode was good. Let’s see, how the second season will be…

Sport

This month, I kept training at least between 3 and 4 times per week. Some people came to train in my garage (yeah I trained there) because they wanted to punch the heavy bag.

The Nuggets lost again the Timberwolves in one of the weirdest seven games series I have ever watched.

And, then to be almost swept by the Mavericks (4-1). First NBA Finals for Doncic. They will be facing Tatum’s Celtics.
