Coders of Finance – { in·deed·a·bly }

Coders of Finance – { in·deed·a·bly }

Welcome back geeky FIRE seekers. A long time has passed since the last episode of this series. Some folks even asked me if it is over. The truth is that this series takes place in a special corner of my heart and I don’t really plan on killing it before I stop blogging, so please calm down. Today I brought you another fellow European and London based blogger who shied away so far from talking about the topic of programming in…

Deadly Finance

We are already done with the triduum of Halloween, All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day. While the Halloween part got more and more popularity at our ends only in recent years the other two days were always the occasion for us to visit the graves of our loved ones. This melancholic time of the year is perfect for remembering and reflection. As the weather turns colder, the days darker, and nature slowly slips into its hibernated state our thoughts…

10 Questions with Mr. 1500

10 Questions with Mr. 1500

“Hey, look at him, he is alive, the guy who stated that he will get back on track with posting then disappeared.” I know, I know and you are right. I should have been waking up when September ends. And now it is almost the end of October and all I published is a rant about the Suze Orman phenomenon. She apparently “changed” her mind, btw. So what happened? Well, I try to stick with a new writing schedule and…

Thanks for your concern Suze, but the FIRE movement is fine

Thanks for your concern Suze, but the FIRE movement is fine

Seven years have passed since Pete Adeney alias Mr. Money Mustache started his blog and Mustachianism was born. He was not the one who started the FIRE movement itself but definitely brought the idea to more people than anyone before. The roots of the concept of FIRE are older than many of us imagine. It is not a new invention, but only the recent years brought higher popularity and broader media coverage. Like all other great movements, it also had…

Wake me up when September ends

Wake me up when September ends

Time is running fast. Summer is gone. Six weeks passed since my last post and (despite some folks thought so) I haven’t thrown in the towel yet. While I am back in business still not rolling at full speed. It is not that simple after such a long blogging hiatus but I felt it right to write a quick heads-up post as the first step of getting back on track. Blogiversary If that “World’s Worst Blogger” contest would be real,…

Back in the time I already wrote about my thoughts on the fear of getting bored in retirement. I did not change my views but as keep seeing posts popping up about the topic I had a think what I would do after reaching FIRE. Of course besides the travel the world and spend most of my time with family general ideas. So here is it, check out my non-complete list of ideas for having fun in retirement. Art Anyone…

Can you believe that it is already August? Time seems running fast these days and while the weather is crazy this year, it is summer at its fullest. You know that from people periodically disappearing for a couple of weeks and they return happier and tanner than before. Also, there are posts all over the internet popping up everywhere about perfect backpacking methods, must have camping appliances, and vacation saving tips. As I was thinking about what wisdom can I…

Participating in the Random Questions series

Participating in the Random Questions series

In my Coders Of Finance series I am the one who knocks asks questions, but interestingly there are occasions when others are curious about my answers to some of their questions. At first, these came only in form of spam comments and emails asking if I am interested in some Ponzi schemes, free viagra samples or services I definitely don’t need. Then my first legit indulgement into the interviewing world happened by taking the BoaS Question Series over at BudgetOnAStick.com (beware,…

Can your ideal FIREplace be in Europe?

Can your ideal FIREplace be in Europe?

First of all, by FIREplace I meant the place where you retire to. I bet your instinctive answer to this question would be a huge YES. Also, probably you are already envisioning yourself enjoying the sun on a sandy beach in Spain, France or Italy. Or maybe you prefer indulging into the great fun what a capital city like London could offer? Or even would you just spend your time wandering around in the Alps in Switzerland or Germany? Riding a…

Coders of Finance – Ms ZiYou

Welcome back geeky FIRE seekers. At the end of an earlier episode, I promised you that in two weeks I will present you the first interview with a female coder-blogger. That mission failed back then but I am happy that finally, I am able to fulfill my promise. Today I brought you a fellow European, a very talented young feminist whose writings brought me multiple epiphanies so far despite I only follow her blog for a couple of weeks. Our communication started with…
