Coders of Finance – Abandoned Cubicle

Coders of Finance – Abandoned Cubicle

Welcome back geeky FIRE seekers. It seems that we cannot leave the Twin Cities without having our other local fellow blogger featured in this series. He is Cubert who blogs over at AbandonedCubicle.com. As you will see (or as you know) he does not have a coder job but he works in IT, still had his share of coding back in the days. Featuring not only coders but anyone who works in IT was part of my initial plans, just…

Call the man or be the man

Call the man or be the man

The past two weeks were extremely busy in the [HCF] household and we are still looking forward a lot more to come. Maybe some of you noticed that I was AFK since Good Friday. Living in a country like Serbia while belonging to the largest minority group has its advantages and disadvantages. I was experiencing the former lately in the form of unexpected holidays. The vast majority of citizens are Eastern Orthodox Christians (~85%), and the second one are Catholics…

Coders of Finance – Budget On a Stick

Coders of Finance – Budget On a Stick

Welcome back geeky FIRE seekers. This week I brought you geeky insights about another one of our fellow coder-bloggers, all the way from the Twin Cities. He goes with the alias Mr. BoaS and blogs over at www.budgetonastick.com. I love to read his insightful posts on… well, pretty much everything. He is more of a “man of numbers” than me, but we share a lot of interests besides coding. He also likes cooking, getting lost in his own mind and tinkering…

Coders of Finance – KeepThrifty

Welcome back geeky FIRE seekers, as I promised in the kickoff episode this time my interviewee will be a more popular blogger (who am I fooling, all of them will be more popular than me :)). His blog was one of the first ones which I started following and stuck with it ever since then. It turned out that as fellow fathers & bloggers we share a set of values, the importance of our families, the need for a fulfilling…

Hitting the six months mark

Hitting the six months mark

To be totally honest I wasn’t sure if this day will come. But it did, so I can peacefully write it down: I am six months into blogging. Maybe it seems like not a big deal to you, but it is huge for me. I am a recovering procrastinator and a serial quitter. Back in last September when I published my first post with trembling hands I was a total noob. Wrote a mini CMS before, just for fun (and for…

Coders of Finance – Kickoff

Coders of Finance – Kickoff

Prologue In the last post of the previous year, I stated that in 2018 this blog should get a little bit geekier. As part of that path and to establish connections (and hopefully friendships) with more like-minded folks I decided to start an interview series. It was a pleasant surprise that how many techies are amongst our ranks, so it seems there will be no shortage of interviewees. In every post, the main goals will be to get some insights…

Pirates of the Cryptobbean

Pirates of the Cryptobbean

Ahoy, matey! You probably came here for some funny stories about Jack Sparrow and his homies. I have to tell ya, that you will have no luck this time as the title is just a (shark)clickbait. Unfortunately, this situation depicts the actual crypto world more accurately than you would think. Most of the people who venture into this strange land of uncertainty are daydreaming about the romantic, entertaining, happy ending stories. But I have to tell ya, there lies more…

Funny Friday – Stealth Wealth Edition

Funny Friday – Stealth Wealth Edition

Hey All, yes it seems I am still here. To be honest, I was not sure about continuing this Funny Friday series, however, these were the most popular here. It is a little bit hard to compose a whole set of memes and find a topic as most of the time inspiration comes randomly and for a single meme. This will highly impact the future of these series but will tell more about that next week. This week the situation…

A Tuesday Rant – The Six Figure Problem

A Tuesday Rant – The Six Figure Problem

I had different plans for today’s post, but then yesterday something happened. Liz from ChiefMomOfficer.com shared this article on twitter. I stated there that I don’t want to be rude so I will not go on a rant. But the topic did not let me rest so I decided to do so but try to keep myself from being rude. I really like the Thursday Rant series by Mr.1500 and how he handles this kind of topics so gave it…
