Tomorrow SpaceX will do a test launch of it's much anticipated Falcon Heavy. The launch has been delayed for several months now. SpaceX expected it to be easier since it consists out of 3 strapped together Falcon 9's, but strapping 3 rockets together was not as easy as they thought it would be.
I think I'm still recovering from last season's mindfuck. But last night, during the Super Bowl, the first trailer of season 2 premiered! It's HBO's first commercial in 20 years for Super Bowl. And in about 2 months, on April 22nd, the new season of Westworld will start on HBO. Really looking forward!
Last week I visited my girlfriend, who just moved to London to join ustwo games, for a few days. I worked some days remote and took the weekend to explore London a bit. Besides the cold weather I really enjoyed the few days that I was there, can't wait to go back!

It's somewhat surprising that Bitconnect lasted this long. It doesn't take a lot of brains or a degree in rocket science to realise it's an obvious ponzi.

Something that I struggled with in the past, configuring a headless Raspberry Pi so I can SSH into it over WiFi. It used to be a quite a hassle connecting a monitor with HDMI and a keyboard etc, but these days it's quite easy to do with the latest version of Raspbian.
