16 Nov 2019 System76 Kudu4: After two years

Two years and three months ago, I have purchased the Kudu4 laptop from System76, which is essentially a rebranded Clevo N870HZ laptop for Linux. I have enjoyed using the laptop so far, and it has gone through a lot of use and abuse, especially with my rough handling of my laptop in my backpack. The laptop stood well in the past two years in most aspects, the build quality is solid (although heavy).

A Gopher version of my website is available! You can access it by visiting gopher://humaidq.ae with a browser that supports it, such as lynx.

23 Jul 2018 My new website & blog

Welcome to my newly designed website, which includes a Git projects page, a blog, a gallery and my contact information. The website used to run on a web server which I wrote using the Go programming language, and had a login page with GitHub authentication. But I do not have a reason anymore to have a dynamic website1, it is possible to have a website which is static and be able to host all the content I need.
