    still trying to find a notetaking app that ticks all my boxes:

    • [ ] Web, mobile (either web or native, iPad and Android phone) clients
    • [ ] Options for self hosting, or use of open file formats for easy export to a different client
    • [ ] handwriting support at a minimum (apple pencil support)
    • [ ] Not sucky UX

    Logseq is a frontrunner, but is sadly lacking in handwriting support. This makes me think that I might just abandon handwriting notes on my iPad, but that also makes me feel weird because I bought it mainly for handwriting. Would love any suggestions from the lobsters community on notetaking apps!

      Obsidian with some handwriting plugin and you’ll be good to go. Really the best out there right now as Logseq is in very early stages and it’s slow. I use syncthing to sync between all devices.

      P.S. Logseq probably also has such a plugin.

      Learning linear algebra by watching MIT 18.06 1999. Also doing some C++ experimenting.

        Going to a b-day party, having an online talk with a very interesting person, learning Rust, reading SICP.

        From now on I’ll try not to structure my weekends too much.

          Second week at my new job so I’ll be learning more stuff. Right now it’s not that stressfull but work is slowly getting to a normal fast rate.

            I’ll be working on my blog. I’ve wanted to start one for the longest time now since I want to give back to the community and not only that but I think it’s good for my future employers to see how/what I think. I’m thinking that I’ll just use Jekyll with GitHub Pages/Netlify. Any tips & tricks on how I should do things better (tech wise and/or content wise) are welcome!

              It’s good to have “content” or at least outlines for future content ready to go. That way you can have 2 or 3 posts “lined” up and won’t feel such pressure to continue.

              “Blogging” encompassed a bunch of stuff , from basically being the online face of a company (a more chatty press release), to “building a personal brand”, to keeping an online diary or tech notes, to simple venting.

              GH Pages is great for a “here’s what I do coding-wise” blog.

                I see, thank you for the feedback. I’ve got a couple of article ideas already I just have to write them. I was thinking that my blog will be a personal brand but the ideas in it will not be venting but just presenting my work, research or just my observations about some life topic. I don’t want to limit myself to just a tech blog. Do you think that this is a wise choice - to mix up content like that or should I stick to one topic e.g. tech. If I do this it’ll be with the intention to feel more close and personal not just another blog.

                  I honestly don’t know. If you want it to be a “go-to” point for employers, you might want to limit discussions about, say, drug legislation or mental health. It’s a tough line to walk but if you exercise some common sense you should be fine.

                  1. 2

                    Yeah I didn’t mention this but I’m not going to discuss the common controvercial and sensitive topics. I’ll have variety but such topics won’t be suitable for what I want to create.

                      Cool! Good luck with your blog!
