Installing R with Homebrew with all the capabilities

3 minute read

As I explained in my previous post if you installed R with Homebrew you have less capabilities than with a R installed from CRAN’s binary. But, can you have all the capabilities while you still use Homebrew to install R? Yes! However… why you bother to install it with Homebrew at all instead of installing it from CRAN. Well, it’s true that CRAN ...

The ciabatta recipe

Homebrew

In some of my previous post [e.g. 1, 2, 3 or 4 ] I’ve been using Homebrew to install some pieces of software in my Mac using the terminal, or shell.

A package manager is a small piece of softw...

First Heavy Snowfall

2 minute read

Last Sunday we had the first heavy snowfall of this winter season in Joensuu. As you can see in the photos in flickr gallery below, the landscape was really wonderful… quite like a postcard. Olalla and I decided to go outside after our late brunch and take a walk over the fresh snow to shoot some photos. It was a quite nice walk, also rather col...

Jääkarhut

6 minute read

Yesterday was the first time in while I’ve been in Jääkarhut. It’s a really especial place and quite singular, or at least it’s what I’ve been told. It’s really true that at least the scenery, if the weather is favorable (I don’t mean necessarily sunny), it’s really awe and jaw-droping, as you can see in the header image of the post or in the im...

Set rStudio with Homebrew’s Git

3 minute read

As I’ll try to explain in the future, I have a full Homebrew R install. I also try to use Homebrew to install as much applications and utilities I can because I think it’s really handy to be able to install or update just with a simple command in the shell. Although sometimes it give you a little bit of a headache, as this time.

New Web in Jekyll

3 minute read

As you probably have noticed, some days ago I rolled out a new version of my website, which you probably think it’s pretty similar to the previous one, at least talking about its external appearance. However, it’s really different in the inside, since it’s a static web build with Jekyll, while the previous one was build on Wordpress. This isn’t ...

Some months ago my wife brought to my attention Jekyll, which is a blog aware static-site __generator, or in other words it’s a piece of software that allows you to beautiful generate static websites. At that moment, I didn’t play too much attention to it, and just look for some comparisons between it and WordPress and I came to the conclusion t...

Back to Joensuu

More or less a month ago we came back from US to Finland. There is no so much to tell about his, but just that the return has been a little bit hard. We returned to an apartment that we have to set in motion again after we were 5 month away. And we have to battle the jet-lag, that it’s really something when you return from US to Europe. For me i...

Media Buttons Behavior Has Changed In macOS High Sierra

macOS High Sierra has changed the behavior of the media buttons on macOS —AKA those buttons you use to play/stop music or go forwards or backwards. Before, they were reserved to manage music, whether you where playing in iTunes or Spotify, with iTunes having preference (usually). They also worked with some video player.

It wasn’t nothing really official or for much purpose of scrutinize us, but just to know ourselves a little bit more and we can work our strengths and weakness. To my surprise, the test told me that I have an entrepreneu...
