Baldurs Gate 3

  • As you may have noticed, I haven’t been very active on Mastodon or this blog recently. The reason is simple – I’ve become completely addicted to “Baldur’s Gate 3” instead of spending my evenings in a productive way.
  • I’m playing as a paladin and trying to be a good guy, or rather a male human in this case.
  • The last time I felt so immersed in a game was when I was playing Fallout 2 more than 20 years ago1.
  • I tried playing it on Mac some time ago, but I wasn’t happy with the performance and the limitations of the screen, so I returned it. I patiently waited for the premiere of the PS5 version and bought it again. I still find it difficult to manage inventory, spells, and dozens of actions using a controller, but fortunately, as a turn-based game, it’s not a big issue.
  • It’s a wonderful game, but if you want to get enough sleep, I wouldn’t recommend buying it.


  • I’ve completed a few projects! Once I reach 5 projects, I will create a dedicated page for them on this blog:)
  • The most recent project I finished is a cutting board that I gifted to my wife. It was my first time using a router and jig!
  • My wife is happy, and that makes me happy!
  • It might not be impressive to someone else, but I know that I put genuine effort and heart into it, and this invisible part is the most valuable aspect of the gift.
  • My great streak and optimism faded a bit when I attempted to build a pencil holder from multiple pieces of wood. I failed to cut out the perfect circle and couldn’t figure out how to work with small elements.
  • Even though I didn’t manage to finish the project, I learned quite a lot, and that’s the positive aspect of it.
  • Another positive aspect is that I asked a friend to help me out with some 3D printed templates for the next attempt. I already have them, and I can’t wait to use them in my next project!

New keyboard on board

  • I have to admit that buying a new keyboard was a good excuse for writing this particular post. I’m a proud owner of a Keychron Q1 Pro with Keychron K Pro Brown switches. If there were a burglary, I would grab this keyboard and fight off the burglar with it. It is heavy and could be used as a weapon.
  • The main reasons for the change were that I wanted a full set of function keys and a different layout compared to my previous keyboard (it turns out I’m a fan of the ISO-UK layout2). I’m still getting used to the Enter key being narrower, so I often hit \ instead of Enter, but other than that, the overall experience is superb!
  • Hopefully, I won’t need to buy another keyboard for the next few years!


  • The days are shorter, and the few minutes when the sun is shining during the day are precious. These days, I keep my camera next to me because there’s only a narrow window of opportunity to capture a nice, warm photo! I particularly enjoy taking photographs of our day-to-day life, such as preparing dinner or playing with kids. Give it a try!
  • I still love reading other peoples’ blogs! Apart from stories and thing people share, I put a lot of attention in how their pages work. Michael automated a lot and I’m impressed! Especially by the /blogroll and /now pages. A lot to learn from!

  2. I’m not the expert here, but TLDR: I want the same layout as on my Macbook, with a ~ next to my Right Shift key. ↩︎
