MTB Kaczmarek Rydzyna – faster than many MTB bikers :)

First stage of MTB Kaczmarek Electric series – first and last for me, because I gave up driving MTB – it’s not my world :) But… Rydzyna in Mini edition was very, very fast and simple – it’s flat route for beginners, without many hills and descents (only ~120 m up!). I decided to start using my CX bike and it was good decision – I was faster than many, many of MTB bikers :) Of course it’s becasue of terrain – on difficult route, my result would probably be worse… But.. maybe not? Uraz Cross Bike showed, that CX bike can be very fast – all depends on our condition. For many participants, it it was the beginning of the season. For me it was the fourth competition in a month…

Nconf – simple, great solution for Node.js app configuration

When I started work with Node.js and Express, I was looking for something to store my app settings. Something like env files in many PHP frameworks – central place for configuration, not stored in repository, but only for example when we run app in development or production environment. We can write custom code for that, or use some modules from npm, also directly for env files. Nuxt package also has dedicated env file module. These modules are great, but there is something much, much better – nconf.
