Harry Hole is not in a good place. Rakel--the only woman he's ever
loved--has ended it with him, permanently. He's been given a chance
for a new start with the Oslo Police, but it's in the cold case
office, when what he really wants is to be investigating cases he
suspects have ties to Svein Finne, the serial rapist and murderer
who Harry helped put behind bars. And now, Finne is free after a
decade-plus in prison--free and, Harry is certain, unreformed and
ready to take up where he left off. But things will get worse. When
Harry wakes up the morning after a drunken night with blood that's
clearly not his own on his hands, it's only the very beginning of
what will be a waking nightmare the likes of which even he could
never have imagined.
In the early afternoon I started in
a new Harry Hole novel by Jo Nesbø.
Aphonopelma seemanni Terrarium
In the evening I managed to get the lid off the plastic tub I keep an
Aphonopelma seemanni in without disturbing the large spider. The
tarantula was partially outside of its hide; a great opportunity to
take some photos of my current set up.
In the above photo you can see fake plants, a cork tube cut in half
for a hide, a plastic bottle cap for water and some real moss. I keep
the moss moist and let the rest of the substrate dry out more; it's
still quite moist. The substrate is a mix of coco peat and sand.
I bought the Aphonopelma seemanni the 7th of
March and so far it has
been doing great in my care. I feed it regularly either Tenebrio
molitor larvae or pupae.
Things I Wished More Developers Knew About Databases
A large majority of computer systems have some state and are likely
to depend on a storage system. My knowledge on databases accumulated
over time, but along the way our design mistakes caused data loss
and outages. In data-heavy systems, databases are at the core of
system design goals and tradeoffs. Even though it is impossible to
ignore how databases work, the problems that application developers
foresee and experience will often be just the tip of the iceberg. In
this series, I’m sharing a few insights I specifically found useful
for developers who are not specialized in this domain.
