how to make it

  • Put the seaweed into water for 3 min
  • boil udon in 500ml water for like 2 min or depending on how soft you want it
  • fry the "biffstrimler" and add "1 tea spoon" of mirin and soya source on it (or just wing it)
  • add one udon soup sachet in a bowl and boil ~200ml water and put it in a bowl and stir
  • transfer "udon" in the bowl and add "biffstrimler"

This seems interesting and a modern vpn altenative to tinc, openvpn and its wicked fast! and simple to setup

"WireGuard is a secure network tunnel, operating at layer 3, implemented as a kernel virtual network interface for Linux, which aims to replace both IPsec for most use cases, as well as popular user space and/or
TLS-based solutions like OpenVPN, while being more secure, more performant, and easier to use. "

Trying to teach myself japanese. Here are some of the resources i found useful

  • First learn Hiragana
  • Then learn Katakana and then learn Kanji

Dont overdo memrise, take one level at a time. Set goal for 15 min a day and meybe do it every 3-4 hours thats what i do to refresh my memory

Some people set 45min and do it all at the same time every day, i think they get to much information and they get more frustrated/bored as time goes by

i found useful it read hiragana in anime/dramas or random Japanese video on youtube to motivate me

Nice Japanese people on twitter to send simple hiragana tweets to and on discord
