Great to have you back on a regular basis. Glad you're doing better!

My favorite pizza as a kid was this bar/restaurant that was only a mile or so from my house. I haven't had it in 35 years but I can still taste it. They also had amazing burgers which they cooked in their pizza ovens. They would cover them in cheese and mushrooms. (this was long before I became a vegetarian, obviously) Just thinking about this takes me back to my childhood 😊

I was just thinking of you and glad to hear you’re alright, hope you have all you need for a smooth recovery πŸ™ your pizza brought me back to my high school shenanigan days on route 40, looks delicious. And you’re so right about the physicality of accents, I did tongue exercises while learning French to pronounce new sounds and had never reflected on the ways my body also changes while speaking French vs English

This kind of injury is very annoying. Take care and have a good recovery.

We prepare Pizza every week at home, but our favorite style is thin and crunchy like they do in Roma πŸ™‚

Here's my take on the tech stacks: what you are building and how much time you have for it is essential.

In about three months, my agency shipped the initial version of a project management tool built for architectural acoustics engineers.

It's a super complex world, with tons of data, relations, charts, and features (especially around working with tabular data because engineers use Excel a lot).

Building this thing in such a short time was only possible with frameworks.

Forums, blog engines, and job boards usually have limited ways to input and represent data. And most of it is text and images. In 2013, I built an entire forum engine (phpBB style) from scratch as the final project i middle school, with no frameworks. It's doable and probably the best way to do it.

On the other hand, there's nothing wrong with using NextJS and Prism for a simple blog application, and people often do that to try some new tech.

So I guess the answer to what's the tech stack that fits best for your use case is: it depends :)

Get better soon, Janahan!
