Created a video to help people get started with HexHoot

A few days ago, I decided to make version release for HexHoot on GitHub, as I think it is important to differentiate something that is more stable and something that is under development. Having versions that people can download seem to be the best move to do the same. Following the same, I shared it with people over LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram. One of the feedbacks I received over private messages was asking me to provide more information on what it exactly is and how to use it. Although all these information are written in the documentation and the website, it appears to be that people like to watch videos explaining the same. Therefore, in the past couple of days, I have been performing screen recording and doing voice overs. Interestingly, during this process, I found a couple of issues with the software, and I fixed those. The following is the video. Please do provide your feedback on this project. It would be lovely if any of you are interested in contributing to the same. Y

First impression of Lugano - Mindblowing

I started off from Zurich at around 7.30 in the morning. There was a direct train to Lugano from Zurich HB. I vaguely remember my internet searches on the cost to travel from Zurich to Lugano via train to be about 30 CHF, but in reality, taking the ticket from the station, it costed me double of that. I don't know if the tickets have surge prices or something. Anyway, the journey was nice as I was able to see some beautiful places along the way and I think I had a chance to go through Gotthard Base Tunnel, which is the longest tunnel in the world.

Getting down at Lugano station and looking out, I saw one of the most beatiful scene that I have ever seen. I am not sure if I could describe that properly in words, nor do I think the following photograph that I took justifies how it looked to me in person.

I had to walk down a lot of stairs from here with the heavy bags that I had, only to realize that I made a wrong turn at some point. I was informed that instead of going back up, it would be better to just climb down the entire stairs and take the sidewalks of the road so that I can easily roll the trolley bag instead of carrying it. The road was a bit longer, but I understand that it was the better option.

I reached my apartment by around 11.30 AM, made some porridge (I had brought some broken rice from my hometown) for myself and slept for a few hours.

I was thinking about going to the Lidl nearby, but it has been raining and I forgot to bring an umbrella. I waited till my roommate arrived to take his umbrella to go out. He arrived at around 8.40 PM and he told me that there is a Migros supermarket a little closer than the Lidl, and he told me that both would close by 9 PM. I brisk walked till Migros only to find out that it closes at 7 PM. I had to do with another bowl of porridge for dinner.

The fact that the supermarkets close at such an early hour is news to me. I hope I would have this information in my mind everytime I run out of groceries.
