    2018 was a wonderful year for reading. I think I read the most books ever in one year! This includes – for the first time – a lot of non-fiction books. I enjoyed most of the books a lot and learned about the world and the meaning of life. (Hint: it’s 42).

  • Belotten

    “Belotten” as a card game that is often played where I come from. Different variants exist, but this is the version I grew up with. Some of the conventions are also included.

  • Designing a Curriculum Vitæ in LaTeX – Part 1: Concept and General Design

    About half a year ago, I posted a blog post on how I created my business card. This post was my most popular post to date. It was even the most tending post for a few hours on Hacker News.
