After several months without writing, I’m here again.

As I clearly don’t remember everything I did these past months, let me go through the most relevant things and then jump into the week.

Long time!

The last time I wrote was the–checks his notes– April 24th. Wow, 178 days ago. Let’s review some stats first, shall we?

Not bad, not bad. It could be better, but not bad (I’m sure I’m not tracking everything).

So I had a pretty robust set of months; I even got recognition at work (I’m not going to enter into details because of private stuff. But it was an unexpected nice thing). It was part of a series of changes I made in my workflow and events that culminated simultaneously. I’ll talk about the changes in my workflow in another post.

  • Fedora: Due to several events, I adopted many packages in Fedora. Currently, I own almost 300 packages. I keep maintaining Go and Delve primarily, but now I also carry several other small Go packages.
  • Delve: My port to PPC64LE was merged!
  • Health: My health went down slightly as my back started to hurt badly. I resumed my training recently and began doing pilates, so I’m back on track, and my back doesn’t hurt anymore. But I was slightly scared of how quickly my health went down the hill. I race a 10k in 3 weeks, so I guess it means I’m okay again.

Now, onto the current week

This week

  • I migrated to Micro.blog, as I explained here. I had yet to learn they support Hugo blogs, and they solved one of my main issues with the blog: writing on the go. It was a no-brainer. It could be better, but I love its indie aspect.
  • SPDX licensing. There’s an ongoing effort to change the naming of the licenses in Fedora ELN. Go and Delve are set. Documentation.
  • CGO calls: I’m starting a project where I need to evaluate the performance of the CGO calls in the Go FIPS fork. This is an entirely new field for me. I had very little time due to internal tasks this week, but at least I have the current benchmarks of some of the cryptographic algorithms. If this ends well, I smell a cool blog post.
  • Go SIG: The bridge between Matrix and the IRC (where the bot for the meetings runs) has been down for a few weeks now, so the meetings have been slightly dry recently. But in general, the community is healthier than ever.
  • Training: I’m a little under the weather (if it’s not flu, I don’t know what it is), so I didn’t run, but I attended my two pilates classes. I hope to squeeze in a short run this weekend.
  • Books: This week has been Dune all the time. I know some people will hate me, but… I do not like the book at all. The writing is horrible. I hope it gets better.

I know this was a chaotic weeknotes post but way better to deliver than keep it laying around, am I right?
