    Test [1]

    Test 2 [2]

    Test 3 [3]

    Paragraphs are separated by a blank line.

    2nd paragraph. Italic, bold, and monospace. Itemized lists look like:

    • this one
    • that one
    • the other one

    Note that — not considering the asterisk — the actual text content starts at 4-columns in.

    Block quotes are written like so.

    They can span multiple paragraphs, if you like.

    Use 3 dashes for an em-dash. Use 2 dashes for ranges (ex., “it’s all in chapters 12–14”). Three dots … will be converted to an ellipsis. Unicode is supported. ☺

    Definitely, we are using Django templates but there is still one problem though. We are still hardcoding raw HTML inside our views. Creating templates for a large HTML page in this way would be very cumbersome and tedious. It would be much better if we could write the HTML in an external file. Let’s do this.

    Latest blog posts:
    {{ $pages := first 5 (where site.RegularPages "Type" "post") }}    
    {{ range $pages }}
    - [{{ .Title }}]({{ .Permalink }}){{ end }}

    Earlier today I watched The Mitchells vs the Machines on Netflix. It’s a well-done, fantastic, ridiculous, fun, clever, family-friendly adventure, I really enjoyed it.

    Probably the most useful ones:

    Everything RSS JSON HFEED
    Blog RSS JSON
    Notes RSS JSON

    Links RSS JSON

    Generally, almost every list on the site has an RSS feed generated. For example: for tags, go to /tags/<tagname>/index.xml.

    There might also be some secret feeds somewhere that I use for mysterious purposes, but then I can’t go about announcing those can I now?

  • About::Contact Information

    Standing Invite

    I’m generally amenable to talking to strangers on the internet. If you want to talk about topics such as:

    • Java, Python, JavaScript, general programming stuff
    • software architecture, software development in general
    • software engineering career advicce
    • the Philippines
    • life in general

    Feel free to contact me (but maybe read the rest of this page first).

    This policy was inspired by a tweet from Stephanie Hurlburt and also patio11’s own standing invite. If you need tips about how to contact strangers, that last link is a great read.

    Note: I reserve the right to publish the content of any correspondence you make with me on this blog. If you do not wish for your content to be publicly available, please say so explicitly.

    FAQ

    • Can I contact you about updating one of your old posts to link back to my site for promotional purposes?

    No. I’m generally not interested in such arrangements. Refer to this post for more details.

    • Do you publish sponsored content?

    Sure. But the minimum rate is $10,000 per post and I reserve the right to style the sponsored post any way I want.

    • Can I write a guest post?

    This is a weird question to ask even if I knew you personally. Get your own blog!

    • Can I ask you to write a review for a product you might find interesting?

    Yes. I am especially willing to write reviews for ebooks, provided it is in an area of interest and I am given a complimentary copy. Note that I don’t guarantee the review will be in any way flattering. As with the rest of my writing on this site, it will be my honest opinion.

    How to contact me

    For work-related correspondence, please use the email address specified on the resume page.

    For other matters, please contact me via one of the following methods:

    • email: hello@roytang.net. I’m not one of those people who lets their inbox gets cluttered, so I will generally see your email within a day or so. If it’s of interest, I will probably reply quickly as well. Please include somewhere in your subject line the word “PINEAPPLE” in all caps, to indicate that you have read this FAQ. If I don’t reply quickly, it’s either (a) you ignored the FAQ above; or (b) you did not include the subject keyword and your email was automatically filtered away; or (c) I’m busy and/or need time to think of a response and will get back to you eventually.
    • Twitter: @roytang. My DMs are open.
    • Mastodon: @roytang@mastodon.technology. IDK how Mastodon DMs work, do I need to enable them?

    You can also try to contact me via any one of my other active accounts, but the above are your best bet.

    I generally don’t like taking phone calls, but if you already have my mobile number anyway and you really can’t just use email, please send me an SMS first before calling. If you don’t have my mobile number and want/need it for some reason, send me an email to ask for it.

    • 3: I wouldn’t mind watching it again, maybe running in the background while I do other things
    • 2: I would not want to watch it again
    • 1: If you suggest watching it, it might be time to end the friendship
    # Title Release Year Date Watched Notes Rating (out of 5)
    1 Sicario 2015 Jan 05 Great thriller movie, but the lesson here is so bleak 5
    2 Paprika 2006 Jan 08 Colorful, vivid and great animation but so so bizaare 4
    3 Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) 2014 Jan 08 Insanely good, I can see why it won best picture 5
    4 Looper 2012 Jan 09 Entertaining enough, but raises so many time travel questions 4
    5 John Wick 2 2017 Jan 12 Better than I expected 5
    6 Ad Astra 2019 Jan 13 Kinda draggy 3.5
    7 Klaus 2019 Jan 13 Surprisingly good. Fantastic animation 5
    8 Marriage Story 2019 Jan 14 Great performances. Ma didn’t like the ending. 5
    9 Fist of Fury 1972 Jan 14 Great fight scenes. Actually a bit more plot than I expected 5
    10 Coming to America 1988 Jan 15 I had low expectations, but it was better than I thought it would be. Ma would like it! 3.5
    11 MIB International 2019 Jan 15 Kind of predictable 3
    12 Batman vs TMNT 2019 Jan 16 Ridiculous, but fun. Good for kids. 4
    13 6 Underground 2019 Jan 17 The editing and scene transitions were all over the place. A very Michael Bay film. 3.5
    14 The Wolf of Wall Street 2013 Jan 18 This movie does nothing to improve my opinion of modern capitalism. 4.5
    15 Parasite 2019 Jan 19 Really good, but IDK how to begin to describe it. Worth overcoming the 1 inch subtitle barrier for. 5
    16 Kiki’s Delivery Service 1989 Feb 04 Very light-hearted and idyllic. At first it felt a bit boring, but it had me smiling by the end. 5
    17 Uncut Gems 2019 Feb 07 Sandler gave a good performance, but I struggled to get through the early parts of the movies because his character and situation are so unrelatable to me personally. 4
    18 Knives Out 2019 Feb 09 A fantastic murder mystery, maybe the best I’ve ever seen, great performances all around. 5
    19 Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World 2003 Feb 10 Watched this because a redditor said ROTK robbed it of best picture in 2003. This is a great war movie, but he was wrong 5
    20 Jojo Rabbit 2019 Feb 11 Best movie about a Nazi ever. Most colorful depiction of Nazi Germany. Fantastic movie. 5
    21 Superman: Red Son 2020 Feb 27 An acceptable adaptation of one of my favorite Superman stories. Minus points for not including the “House of L” epilogue. 4
    22 Coach Carter 2005 Feb 27 I watched this because I saw it in a “top inspirational speeches” YT video. Pretty good sports movie. 4
    23 Billy Madison 1995 Mar 23 Watched this so I know the context of the “I award you no points and may god have mercy on your soul” clip. Typical early Sandler movie. 3
    24 Princess Mononoke 1997 Mar 23 Much more action-packed than the last Ghibli movie I watched. Beautifully animated. 5
    25 Birds of Prey and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn 2020 Mar 25 Spoiler-free review 4
    26 Logan Lucky 2017 Mar 25 Fun heist movie, but I find it hard to take the characters seriously. Might be some anti-redneck bias. 4
    27 The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 2012 Mar 30 See below 4
    28 The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug 2013 Apr 07 See below 4
    29 Project 88: Back to the Future Too 2020 Apr 10 Fantastic fan-made shot-by-shot recreation of Back to the Future II, put together during quarantine, w/ stop motion, kids, sock puppets, bananas, potatoes and much more! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcUUjWbVc4I 5
    30 The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies 2014 Apr 10 This trilogy had far too many extra things that weren’t in the books, but it was pretty good. I rank them Desolation > Five Armies > Journey. 4
    31 The Departed 2006 Apr 10 This was intense. I liked it more than Goodfellas. 5
    32 Spirited Away 2001 Apr 15 Shades of Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz. Easily the best Ghibli film I’ve watched so far. 5
    33 Psych the Movie 2017 May 03 It’s like an extended episode of Psych! 4
    34 Ready Player One 2018 May 05 A predictable yet fun romp. 4
    35 The Siege 1998 May 05 Caught this on Cinemax when I went down for lunch. Much too idealistic in hindsight, given what happened in New York 3 years after this film released. 3
    36 Kong: Skull Island 2017 May 07 Exciting popcorn movie. 4
    37 Ang Huling El Bimbo: The Musical 2019 May 08 Ok, so this one isn’t really a movie. The appeal for me is mostly the music and the nostalgia. The plot was serviceable, though some may find it problematic. 4
    38 Justice League Dark: Apokolips War 2020 May 15 This was great, and appropriatly dark. Good send-off for the DCAMU. 4
    39 Zombieland Double Tap 2019 May 27 A fun romp, but pretty much more of the same. 3
    40 Sonic the Hedgehog 2019 Jun 27 Fun with Ben Schwartz, but James Marsden’s character is kinda dumb. Needs a lot of suspension of disbelief. 3
    41 Mission Impossible Fallout 2018 Jun 29 Good watch, it’s MI, you know how it goes. Maybe 40% of it is Tom Cruise running. 3
    42 Atomic Blonde 2017 Jul 11 I came in thinking it was a John Wick style action movie. True, but it’s also a Cold War spy thriller. Nice twists, but might be a bit hard to follow near the end. 3
    43 The Old Guard 2020 Jul 12 Didn’t know what to expect, never read the Greg Rucka graphic novel on which it was based. Action-packed, fun watch. 4
    44 Superman Man of Tomorrow 2020 Aug 28 Not too good. Weird animation. Writing all over the place. 3
    45 Bill and Ted Face the Music 2020 Aug 29 A most excellent sequel, echoing the earlier two movies. A midlife crisis journey full of heart and time travel nonsense. Little Billie and Theda are great! 5
    46 Enola Holmes 2020 Sep 27 It’s okay. Basically young adult/Nancy Drew Sherlock Holmes, with a bit of feminism thrown in. Mycroft annoying as usual. 3
    47 Wonder Woman 1984 2020 Dec 30 There’s a bunch of things that don’t make sense (even accounting for myths etc), but it helps to think this movie takes place pre-crisis. 3

    Listening Stats

    I don’t actually listen to music too often, much less track what I’m listening to. There is some amount of data I have been able to track using Last.fm’s scrobbling feature. Prior to 2010, my listening was tracked using a scrobbler plugin for Winamp. (Since this requires an internet connection, it does not include music I was listening to at work during this period). After I started using Spotify in 2016, the data is now tracked using the Last.fm scrobbler app for spotify. There is no data from 2011-2015.

    Note 1: Most likely the pre-2010 data includes my brothers playing Winamp on the same computer as me, because I don’t even like Urbandub so there’s no way I played that many of their tracks, but the data is what the data is, so here we are. My 2017 listening history also has a bunch of tracks from animated movies mostly because my niece kept listening to them when she visited.

    Note 2: Data is extracted via this service.

    General stats:

    • Last update date: 2019-12-06
    • Number of tracks: 15,689
    • Number of artists: 1,376
