@reinhart1010 is now available on LinkedIn (sort of)!

Today I learned that I can change that long LinkedIn profile URL from to just What a (#_ )! Anyway, this is part of an ongoing effort to write new CVs for different interests or job positions. Stay tuned for that!

Site Updates: Making things nicer and more SEO-friendly.

A week after we announced the new release of our site, we have finally added support for: oEmbed: Still the most basic ("type": "link") kind of oEmbed, so don't expect for fancy blockquotes or iframes to pop up when embedding from our site. GitHub commit 5103064 Open Graph, Twitter, and other SEO meta tags: GitHub commit 0deab0b Cover/Featured Images, because some of our blog posts, like this, used this feature to give some context to the post content. GitHub commit fc79861 We also changed our emphasis colors from blue to magenta (or officially "fuchsia" in our color palette) and violet, for bold and hyperlinks, respectively! A throwback to the days when Reinhart, as a consecutive class secretary, used magenta and violet whiteboard markers to write announcements to make it stand out from other, teacher-used marker colors (black, blue, red, and green)! ...or maybe not just for announcement, like *that* mobile game concept heavily inspired by Snapchat. Anyway, we have also fixed our sharing integration, which you can learn more on commit 773b8fa. TL;DR: No more random \n or ${titleAndDescription} appearing in the shared content. The latter was originally used for our Astro-based webapp, though. And lastly, we're committed to further improve our blog content caching process as well as optimizing our images for use in our home page. That why, current Lighthouse results shows that our home page now require shorter time to render all the resources, but with a consequence of higher Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS). That's all for now, back to work. Things that are currently prioritized so far are: Reimplement Pingbacks and Webmentions Encouraging people to "comment" directly through Webmentions Reimplement Search Reimplement RSS and Atom feed

Introducing the new (feat T-3000)

After two years of using WordPress, we decided that WordPress is still not good enough to fine-tune our website appearance and experience. And, as a mental holiday for me after finishing a significant part of my thesis, I decided to throw away WordPress on our main site,, and touch some HTML grass to rebuild our website. Long story short, after throwing away our supposedly-to-be Remix and Astro projects, we decided to start over, just right after the thesis, using Laravel. Sorry, Derrick and Houston, but I still love you all (>_ ). Things that are coming back! 1. Dark mode and illuminated glass cards! Did you know that we already implemented dark mode using JavaScript, CSS swapping, and cookies since back in 2014? And how we fought several times in WordPress to make great dark themes like this? Today, we are very, very excited to announce that dark mode, and that cool illuminated cards are coming back. We have also improved how these illuminated, glass cards look under light mode. And as a fallback for browsers who do not support the background blur effect, you can hover or tap on these cards to make it more opaque and contrast, too. 2. Our legendary system font stack is back, now also in serif! Our legendary, diverse system font stack is back and we dropped the webfonts, so we can reallocate the network resources to download some specific fonts which are not available or poorly represented in many operating systems (like Comic Sans and Papyrus). And we have researched and found the best serif system font stack which can be readily used by websites today. We will cover that up in the upcoming post, but spoiler alert, font-family: ui-serif, "Aptos Serif", Constantia, "Charter", "STIX Two Text", "Libertinus Serif", "Linux Libertine O", "Linux Libertine G", "Linux Libertine", "DejaVu Serif", "Bitstream Vera Serif", "Roboto Serif", "Noto Serif", "Times New Roman", serif Things that are not yet but coming back. Of course, since we decided to move away from WordPress, there are still many features which are not yet reimplemented in T-3000, our official project name for our site redesign. It also got a cool slogan too, "Replacing, one nanite at a time" (aka. while ensuring most WordPress-specific routes and API calls can be executed with no necessary change on client). We will prioritize the following features, group by tiers, to reimplement and bring new support for our new website. Tier 1: Search and Blog Archives We will bring back support for searching blog posts, viewing blog archives (e.g. by year or by category), pagination, and so. Tier 2: SEO and Microformats Yeah, we will painstakingly placing proper microformats data, the rel=me attributes,. Tier 3: Comments, ActivityPub, Pingbacks, Webmentions, and Webrings Most of these features are related to our IndieWeb integration. However, we will reintroduce ActivityPub directly on our site, so you can directly follow, react, and comment our posts (again) via Mastodon, Threads (by Instagram), and other platforms, too!

Re: Why I quit being a tech "influencer"

Hi, and congrats for jumping out from the tech influencer bandwagon! As a form of motivation, you might not know that GitHub were actually co-founded by two people who still exist today without a personal blog website, and another two having personal blog sites that are nothing but plain old boring blue links, like Daniel Stenberg, the creator of cURL, and Pieter Levels, in case you know about him. Those influencers, as I personally called them Recycled Developers, often shared things which are not always technically accurate, especially in the long term. Even in DEV, a blog post named 17 Compelling Reasons To Start Ditching TypeScript Now was suddenly inspired someone else to write 18 Reasons to Use TypeScript SINCE YESTERDAY. It is as if that one technology, language, or framework will always be good enough and they shall defend their opinions at all costs. But the truth is, neither JS or TS are better to learn and use, and a better developer should be able to weight and choose the right parts for their project stack. And in fact, many of the tech jobs require from you, unless if you're into DevRel (Developer Relations), documentation, or writing tutorials like in MDN and Kodeco (formerly, is to build and maintain products through well-designed code, not well-designed content. Now I'm interested to read your ebook before it's gone, but that link redirects to http://localhost:3000/products/level-up-your-career-today-developer-edition/ for some reason. It might be interesting to compare it with my perspective as a developer who have done "classic" web development since 2014, Node.js since 2016, C in 2019, Java and PHP/Laravel in 2020, then Python, Swift, React (including Next and Remix), Go, Vala, and beyond over the last few years. But one thing for sure, everyone can start their dev career without forcing them to use HTML/CSS/JS, or Python, or Swift, or back to the good-old C. Concepts are more important to learn, and let those syntaxes and functions follow. (>_ ) 💕

Changes to our BINUS Today article fetching system.

In order to reduce our Internet usage, we are no longer fetching the last 25 articles from BINUS University websites. Instead, we are starting to fetch articles based on the frequency the authors have posted over the last 14 days. Or specifically, 5 * max(⁴√n, 1). If you're not good at mathematics, here's what this means: Articles fetched over the last 30 daysNewest articles which will be fetched 0-152-151016-8015 With this change in mind, we could save the Internet traffic to constantly fetching about 1.600 articles four times a day!

Another reason to use threads in the Fediverse.

Well, some people are still using threads instead of putting everything down in a single post, even in the Fediverse, because some Fediverse software offers the "View More/Less" accordion. How is that relevant, you asked? By splitting these long texts into threads, you can just force everyone to see your really long post in the Fediverse.
