ANDES logoA new logo for ANDES: an instrument of the Extremely Large Telescope
Another astronomy logotype of mine made it through, yay !
This time I participated in a competition to create a logo for the ANDES instrument. ANDES is a high-resolution spectrograph for the next flagship European telescope: the Extremely Large Telescope.
After a few rounds of voting, my contribution was favoured (very narrowly).
The logo shows the Sun setting behind a mountain - representing the Andes. The second mountain on the right represends a prism which diffracts the light, and splits the sun in different colours.design
Spring is here
Light theme! Spring has come to Stockholm. The birds are back, the daylight too. On another note, I am on parental leave from tomorrow from tomorrow - 1st april - until 1st september.
See you in the autumn!meta design
Dark theme! It’s winter-time, much darkness here in Sweden. I though this website should rather have a dark theme. You’re welcome :).meta design
For a long time, I’ve been wanting to set up my own server at home to host some services (backup, media server, etc ..). I had bought a Raspberry Pi but did not take the time to set it up and it just took dust in a cupboard for many months.
Recently, I discovered the Yunohost distribution, which is supposed to make self-hosting easy. Well, it does!. In a few hours, I had the server set up with the first services running. Things are really easy to administrate, applications are already packaged and can be installed in a click! The full catalogue is available at https://yunohost.org/en/apps
At the moment I have the following services running:
- navidrome for streaming my music collection, with compatible apps for smartphone
- Tiny Tiny RSS as a RSS reader (because RSS rocks)
- nextcloud for cloud storage
- lychee for photo gallery (google photos replacement)
Once an avid listener of post-rock music - particularly while working - I grew tired of it a while ago and switched to listening mostly radios (such as Radio Paradise, SomaFM digitalis, or French public service radio FIP).
I rediscovered my post-rock music folder while cleaning out my hard-drive and listened my way through it while working - most tracks being without vocals, it’s pretty good for focussing. Here are some pretty good albums suggestions for you:
Red Sparowes - Every Red Heart Shines Toward the Red Sun, one of my favourite album back then and saw them play in Lyon. They definitely use the classic post-rock trope of terribly long track names ("Like the Howling Glory of the Darkest Winds, This Voice Was Thunderous and the Words Holy, Tangling Their Way Around Our Hearts and Clutching Our Innocent Awe” … really?)
Mogwai - Rock Action, one of the classic band. This is one of the many good albums they produced, evolving their styles as their went! Lost my hearing for a day after seeing them in Stockholm 🙄

The night is long, the Sun is low, but tomorrow, things start changing.
