I often write about cycling and similar topics like stuff reveiews. But… why? Why it’s not only developer, but also cyclist blog, why I like cycling? Answer is not simple, because there are a lot of factors. I can list only few of them – it isn’t complete list, but may be helpful to understand, why I do certain things and why I make such and no other decisions. I’m also open to your opinion and your observations – do you like cycling? Do you love this and… why this exactly?Continue reading “Why I love cycling”
I really dislike cycling in winter, in bad weather. There are a lot of difficulties with this, which make me angry and discouraged. It’s cold, so we need more clothes and also more time to prepare. It’s dark, because days are much shorter. I have very good bicycle flashlight, but I don’t like it anyway. It’s a mess, because of conditions, rain, snow we must clean our bike every ride. Not only bike, but also ourselves and flat, if we don’t have special place for our bike. Finally, it’s dangerous, because of lack of light and weather conditions, we have more changes to accident – independently or with car. Solution? Use trainer. But trainer is boring… Really? Not with Zwift.

Notebook offers four, very advanced and high-bandwitch Thunderbolt 3 ports (do you know, that it can be used to connect external graphics card called eGPU to computer?), but it’s not simple, because I would have to exchange all my devices. Bad a solution, so it’s time to looking for USB-C hub with additional ports like USB-A and Ethernet.Continue reading “USB-C hub for MacBook: difficult choice”
