Order arrived: Wi-Fi range extender and a book on Python

Today, in the early afternoon an order I placed on arrived. Yesterday, I had set up a Raspberry Pi 3 with a keyboard, monitor, and mouse but because of the weak Wi-Fi signal in my office it couldn't connect to the Internet. A range extender would solve this, so I ordered a TP Link AC1200 Wi-Fi Range Extender RE305. The device was a piece of cake to set up, and so far I would recommend it.

Because Adam is very interested in programming I also ordered a book: "Programmeren voor Kinderen"; the Dutch translation of Computer Coding Python Projects for Kids, by Carol Vorderman. I hope this excellent looking book, it has a hard cover which is great, helps my children with both their Dutch and Python skills.

DISTINCT ON: The confusing, unique and useful feature in Postgres

When I saw DISTINCT ON, I was like, there must not be anything new about it, you know, just another similar kind of feature with a different name. But I was wrong! It seems very powerful feature to me at least!

The 2020 MacBook Air

With the new 2020 MacBook Air, Apple has pulled a Michael Corleone and settled all family business. I’ve spent the last day testing Apple’s $1,300 mid-range MacBook Air, with the quad-core Intel Core i5 CPU, 512 GB storage, and 8 GB of RAM.
