Finally found some time to release the website I've been working on and boost it's traffic a little bit. It's essentially a database of Tech questions with the possibility to make quizzes on multiple topics and use an API to embed the questions on your websites - QuizAPI

It's so good to see the results of your work.

I finally got started on my gopher presence, because I miss the old-school Internet:

gopher://sdf.org:70/1/users/citizen428/

Lynx or any other client.

Me too, and I miss it. BBS, Gopher, FTP, that's how I got started with the Internet in the early 90s. So I got myself this shell account with a gopher server a while back, but just let it idle until now. But today I took some time to actually put some content there, and it's nice: just a terminal and vi, no build process or any of that nonsense.

Your cat looks cute. And the other cat is white? I also have 2 cats, black and white. I sometimes think of Kusturica's film "Black cat white cat" when I look at my cats. I also recently gave them a gift and bought them a big cat house. But to my regret, they prefer a closet and an empty box from the washing machine. I read in a blog about pets that this is normal behavior and cats can take a long time to get used to new things. By the way, do you know any interesting blogs about cats? I like this one petsoid.com/what-is-a-group-of-cat.... There's a lot of interesting information here that I didn't know before.

We had a bug report that 2 (seemingly random) users from all our company users were unable to get past the callback page for one of our internal apps.

Turns out their user group's time sync was off by 2 minutes, causing the tokens to be "created in the future" and invalidate themselves 😅 It was one of the weirder bugs I've ever pieced together!

From this week, I have started documenting my Leetcode solutions for the Leetcode May challenge. Although it is now about the Leetcode May challenge, I am planning to write playbooks with trips and tricks for tackling different types of coding interview questions that are encountered frequently in the FAANG and other medium-sized companies.

This is also my first time blogging in dev.to platform.

After spending the last 6 years in IT Support and Cyber Security I had an interview yesterday for a .NET Developer position in St. Louis. I was informed a few minutes after the interview that I got the job 😃!

I have never professionally been a developer and only ever did it as a passion/hobby so a company taking a chance on me letting me finally do it professionally is definitely well appreciated. I'm happy that I finally get to do something I love!
