Code and Run Apps with WSL2

Switching between VMs, dealing with the unfamiliarity feeling of the different OS and windowing system, and having your work-in-progress source code spread across multiple systems can become rather annoying and easily lead to a loss of motivation. For quite some time, I’ve been trying to get the Scancode feature finalized for SFML and experienced the […]

Discussions around log4j and FOSS

Unless you’ve been disconnected from any digital or analog media in the past few days, you must have heard of the zero-day remote code execution (RCE) vulnerability detected in log4j, one of the most popular open source logging library for Java.

The “natively” is to be understood literally for WSL2, meaning you’re really running a Linux Kernel and not just a translation/emulation as with the original WSL. But since I personally haven’t played around much […]

TIL: Recovery & Testing

In the past I’ve used R-Studio, not to be confused with RStudio, the IDE for the statistical programming language […]
