2 weeks in europe

Last week i was in Italy for 8 days before that 4 days in Paris. Paris is beautiful if you exclude the public transportation which is probably one of the worst i've used, from the connection between platform being dirty to the gap of the train and the platform being too huge and to the same line colour where you have to go down and change train (why the heck have the same line when you need to change train). If you remove that paris is really beautiful






Venice is different, its beautiful and unique. Use the water taxi was cool, we rode the canoe and was disappointed that the guy was not singing haha.



Florence was okay maybe because we were just there for a day and the other day we went to pisa



Rome was beautiful as well and so vatical city :) But we were so tired by the 3 cities before that we didnt go to other places, maybe someday ill revisit rome :)

LaMetric Python App

Creating a personal stock app for LaMetric is super simple, all you need is create an account at developer.lametric.com and have an url with your data. Depending on how you want the data to appear, the format should be in json and how it appears in the creation process.

Winamp Spotify Treasure hunting

Back in the days when WinAmp was huge (So was tripod and geocities), WinAmp users like to share their playlist. Most of these playlist are still available online through googling and a lot of them are actually good throwback playlist. With that in mind, I created a javascript script that would change the winamp playlist (pure text) into a spotify search link.

An example of this, say you liked the 90s rock scene. You would google "winamp playlist pearl jam silverchair" and some of the results will return with the title "Winamp Generated PlayList" and these are what we would like to treasure hunt on. Then
Click on of the result.
