Highlights of 2018 → Happy New Year 2019

For me, 2018 was a special year in which I accomplished many objectives and learned a bunch of things. Having the flexibility to work and travel is a great blessing. 🙏

Here are a few highlights of this year. ✨

My Experience in Ecuador 🇪🇨

Perhaps the most touching experience I had this year was living and traveling in Ecuador for three months (September—December).

I visited many wonderful places, met lovely people and made a couple of close friends. I learned a little bit of Spanish, enjoyed the diversity of fresh fruits and vegetables. During this time I was in contact with the Church and made the important step of baptism. 💖

My Journey To India 2017 – What I have Learned

In 2017 I travelled to India for 5 weeks. 🇮🇳 Finally, I took the time to write about what I learned there.

Summarizing, here are some things I learned during these 5 weeks:

Accessing My Home Computer Remotely

I have a powerful ASUS machine which I use when I'm at home. I guess it was designed for gaming. It's quite useful for any tasks, but I often use it for expensive tasks using more resources (e.g. training neural networks). It got a fast enough wired internet connection, as well! 🚀

When travelling, I do not have physical access to my home computer. However, I do want to access it sometimes (when I work on projects requiring lots of computations). ✈️

The solution I ended with is to connect to it via SSH. 🔒

So, using my MacBook, I can simply run ssh -A ionicabizau@<public-ip> -p <port> and land in my home. There are a couple of problems, tho. Here is how I did it! ✨
