n26 review

I posted an article about Revolut vs Monzo. There is one other challenger bank - N26.

Good news is that this month N26 launched its services in the UK and it wants to launch its services in the US in 2019. Impressive.

Strong points:
- Provides German account in euros (and now in British pounds in the UK).
- Nice transparent card. The card looks very nice.
- Gives up to 5 free withdrawals in euros.

Monzo vs Revolut - review

If you're going overseas and would love to use your card to pay for everything. And you'd love to use interbank rate or as close to it as possible. How could you do that?

How to set default username for SSH hosts

One day I got tired of entering

ssh mycoolusername@my.awesome.server.com

Because my username is the same on all the servers. So, what I did - I've created a file and added a default username for the servers:

$ cat ~/.ssh/config
CanonicalizeHostname yes
Host *.my.awesome.server.com
    User mycoolusername


So, I can now connect to is.it.really.my.awesome.server.com by using:

ssh is.it.really.my.awesome.server.com

Java 9 features

Java 9 has introduced a couple of nice features. Let's try to use them? :)
1) Factory Methods for Immutable List, Set, Map and Map.Entry
You can easily create an immutable List, Set or Map by using a .of() method like this:

List<String> newList = List.of("a", "b", "c");
Set<String> newSet = Set.of("a", "b", "c");
Map<Integer, String> newMap = Map.of(1, "first", 2, "second", 3, "third");


Very convenient, I must say. On previous versions of Java you had to make a loop or use some other library to achieve the same result.

How to install Java 9?

Today I started playing with Java 9 on my Ubuntu 17.04. So, I thought it might be handy for other to know how to install Java 9 on Ubuntu. Here are the steps:

How to open a bank account in the UK?

I have just arrived to the United Kingdom and I wanted to open a bank account here. Well, it's not that easy. You need a passport and a proof of address.
Passport is not a problem (surprise surprise). Although proof of address is a bit of a problem, if you have just arrived to the UK. Proof of address is some sort of legal requirement - banks need to know where you live. As a proof of address the following documents would do:

Apie pensijas ir jų reformą

Šiuo metu visuomenėje vyksta aktyvi diskusija apie pensijų sistemą ir jos (galbūt) būsimą reformą. Pabandykime paskaičiuoti mano 2-os pensijų pakopos uždarbį.

Asmeniniai rezultatai

Aš pensiją kaupiu jau nuo 2011 01 01 (daugiau nei 6-is metus), tad atėjo laikas "suvesti galus" ir išsiaiškinti, kaip sekasi mano pasirinktam 2-os pakopos pensijų fondui. Tai yra vieno iš Lietuvos bankų pensijų fondas, didžiausios akcijų dalies (pats rizikingiausias). Aš prie savo pensijos prisidedu ir pats - nuo mano atlyginimo nuskaičiuojami papildomi 2%.

SEB ir jos nauja programėlė Android: 2 dalis

Tęsiant temą apie SEB Android programėlę. Šiandien gavau atsakymą iš SEB banko. Tad, štai ir jis (pastabėlė - tik šiek tiek pakeičiau laiško formatavimą):

Sveiki,

SEB ir jos nauja programėlė Android
