I am a COMPUTER ENGINEER

I am a Computer Engineer.

I know what you're thinking.
You're thinking, "That guy is Cool".

You're so right. I don't like to brag, too much, but I'll let you in on some details.

I have many friends
in chat rooms.

I have excellent contacts
but I prefer to wear glasses because they make me look so cool.

Many women want me
to fix their computers.

I frequently get laid
off.

I know many languages:
Java, C, C++.

I travel to many exotic places
in online games

I'm into sports
drinks.

I collect fancy cars.
Most are still in their original Hot Wheels packaging.

I smell good
so I don't shower very often because I don't want to ruin it.

I have a black belt
that I wear when I can't find my suspenders.

I know that you're now thinking "I want to be that guy."
But you can't.
I was here first.

Capture and compare stdout in python unit tests

A recent fan of TDD, I set out to write tests for whatever comes my way. And there was one feature where the code would print messages to the console. Now - I had tests written for the API but I could not get my head around ways to capture these messages in my unittests. After some searching and some stroke of genius, here's how I accomplished capturing stdout.

On working remote

The last company I worked for, did have an office space, but the code was all on Github, infra on AWS, we tracked issues over Asana and more or less each person had at least one project they could call "their own" (I had a bunch of them ;-)). This worked pretty well. And it gave me a feeling that working remote would not be very different from this. So when we started working on our own startup, we started with working from our homes. It looked great at first. I could now spend more time with Mom and could work at leisure. However, it is not as good as it looks like. At times it just feels you are busy without business, that you had been working, yet didn't achieve much. If you are evaluating working from home and are not sure of how to start, or you already do (then please review and add your views in comments) and feel like you were better off in the office, do read on. Remote work is great. But a physical office is better. So if you can, find yourself a co-working s

The economics of crypto investing

If you believe in the greater fool theory, there is no other market as speculative and volatile as the crypto market today. We are perhaps living in the biggest bubble of our times. I am not bullish on this market in particular. I am bullish on the mania. 90% of the cryptos we see today will crash. They are just tokens with no tangible value generation capability. However, I believe that the mania and euphoria will stay. Having said that, should one consider investing in this market? Certainly! The risk/reward is lovely, potential upsides and margins are huge and with 3-5% of your net worth, the bet on the mania is worth it. How does one choose where to invest? If you follow the stock markets, you are expected to do thorough Fundamental Analysis before investing. Expect the same for the crypto market. I invest in large caps. I invest in index funds. And I invest over and over again. Markets rise, always. Extrapolating the same strategy - invest in indices - the top 10 tokens by
