Rust: Love at second sight

In this post, I will write a little about another of my favourite programming languages, namely, Rust. I started experimenting with Rust in 2015 I think, but it took some time for me to really learn to appreciate it. You could call it a "love at second sight" experience.

Added English blog version

Today, a big change was launched on this blog. Meet, for the first time in years actually, an English version of the blog. At the same time, the branding and URL is also changed from http://per.halleluja.nu to http://perlun.tk http://perlun.eu.org.

HTPC Project, Part 2

(Warning: this posting doesn't really talk very much about the HTPC project per se; it is more of a general posting regarding the Linux installation and my specific situation with previous partitions causing some issues.

We start with the "whys". Why build an HTPC, hasn't everyone done this already?
