This post is about my new external hard drive from Seagate. I’m not a big fan of hard disk drives and prefer solid state solutions, but I can’t ignore HDD advantages. That devices are much cheaper and offer more storage than SSD. Storage was built very important for me because I was looking for something for backup in Time Machine and archive rarely used data. For that needs, external drives are great.

I decided to start “strange experiment” starting next week. I used to create to-do list every day for next day – nothing special, nothing complicated, but very helpful and efficient, for me. But this method has a lot of disadvantages and I will try change paper to application on my phone, tablet and notebook. It will be not first time when I try this, but this time I want to do it differently. What method of to-do list do you prefer? Paper, electronic notes and apps, or maybe nothing?

I just started new Laravel app and had an error “Specified key was too long error” during first migration. Reason is simple and described on official Laravel blog – they changed default encondig and it isn’t working on MariaDB or MySQL lower than 5.7.7 versions. Fortunately solution is very simple, we must only add two line to file AppServiceProvider.php.

Tak się składa, że mieszkam na Dolnym Śląsku… co prawda na północnych granicach, ale jednak wciąż w tym województwie, które słynie z licznych zamków które w lepszym bądź gorszym stanie przetrwały zawieruchę najróżniejszych lat. W ubiegłym roku nieco przypadkowo odwiedziłem jeden z nich, a mianowicie zamek Grodziec położony w miejscowości o takiej samej nazwie. Wyprawa w jaką się wtedy wybierałem w ogóle nie przewidywała czegoś takiego, niesamowicie dała mi w kość, ale wiecie co? Zdecydowanie było warto w pewnym momencie skręcić z wytyczonej wcześniej trasy i przekonać się o pięknie zarówno miejsca jak i widoków jakie się z niego roztaczają.
