Bridge? wat-bridge?

13 Oct 2016

Instant messaging services are very common nowadays. For instance, I use Telegram, while many people I know use WhatsApp, and that's cool. This, however, leads to a question I am asked often: "why don't you install WhatsApp?". The answer to that can be summarized in two main points: "because I don't want to" and "because I cannot install WhatsApp on my phone". But then again, it is interesting to see the user fragmentation between different services, so the Telegram bot API got me thinking about creating a "bridge" between WhatsApp and Telegram, just for fun.

The server is full!

06 Jan 2016

Ok, even I have to admit this is getting a bit out of hand. You see, some weeks ago I started subtly influencing my brother so that he would start playing the MMO Guild Wars 2 with me, given that it recently became free-to-play.

He finally agreed to do it (yay!), if I came up with a name for his character. I asked a friend for help and we came up with a list of names, including some hilarious ones that my brother discarded right away. Anyway, before he could create his character, he had to choose a server to play in and I told him which was the only Spanish server, but it was full. Huh, weird. We tried again the next days with no luck, so I thought of something (you must surely know what is coming).

Zoe, Telegram and transportation

05 Sep 2015

These past days I decided I wanted to end my summer holidays (back to university... yaaaay...) doing something cool with Zoe. So now Zoe can communicate through Telegram and has some knowledge on the public transportation system in Madrid (in particular, buses).
