A small village near Besançon in eastern France (Doubs).
IT developer and a lot of other thins.
I am currently the father of two boys with whom I live alone since two years ago(except roughtly 6 days a month).
I work part-time to have all the time they need from me.
I am in the process of creating a blended family with my lover and her daughter. It’s scary and exciting at the same time. We go there precautiously.
I am still self-employed for mainly two companies (and a few smaller clients that I occasionally help out).
Mainly, I’m building a fairly complex web project that mixes several technologies and a lot of 3D. It’s really interesting (although sometimes overwhelming). Overall, I program tools that allow you to control Blender to make configurable and modular images for a multi-site e-commerce (itself modular and extensible) that I try to make as responsible and intelligent as possible.
I can do whatever I want and plenty of time to work, so it’s really great.
I continue to make music my way. I post my creations right here.
I also recently created a band (bass, guitar, drums, vocals), with which we started to compose songs. It feels good to make big noise again as a band. Looking forward to the live performances!
I am a founding member of an association which is sharing information about plants. We are trying to make a really good site. It’s sometimes a lot of work but it’s fun and family-friendly.
This year’s goal : We go internationnal!
I always try to reduce my electricity consumption and this involves my main work tool. I am slowly migrating towards a new way of working and creating.
My goal is to be able to work on a simple Raspberry Pi on battery with a small screen. And therefore work on a light and fast IDE with only a keyboard. So I would like to, on day, migrate from VSCode to Emacs.
Reduce mouse use and optimize keyboard comfort
I have been working on this more or less regularly for several years. For the moment, I’m slowly starting to get used to working with a QWERTY keyboard (for smoother future work with Emacs), I moved my CTRL key to the CAPSLOCK key to relieve my little finger, and also I limit the use of my mouse and my numeric and directional pad more and more. (to relieve my arm a little). It takes a long time to break habits, but I am hopeful that I will create new habits that are more effective and comfortable.
Reduce my tech consumption
I try to simplify my use of tech as much as possible. I haven’t had a smartphone for a few months. I’m thinking of getting rid of my Nextcloud server in the coming months (electricity etc…). And maybe my phone during the year (which I hardly use in the end).
I would like to self-host on an RPI rather than on this old laptop which I find too greedy (electricity etc…).
I work on it from time to time while preparing for a migration.
My little blog
I try to keep this little site up to date. To post what I do from time to time.
I have recently been putting new photos/videos on the home page from time to time. A bit random. Just stuff that I think is cool.
This year I read
- Une éducation bienveillante et efficace (A caring and effective education) by Laurence Dudek (reread and still appreciated)
- Tant pi pour l’amour (So much for love) by Sophie Lamda (loved)
- Aux quatre vents de l’univers (The Four Winds of the Universe) by Frank Dartal (book from my childhood)
- Les Bagnards d’Alboral (The Bagnards of Alboral) by Peter Randa (book from my childhood)
- Réinventer l’amour (Reinventing love) by Mona Chollet (abandoned halfway. It’s not easy-reading lol)
- It by Stephen King (which I started again after giving up a few years ago. It’s a big big book. It’s in English. This time is the one!)
This is a /now page.
