I created a little public chat room. It's English only, family friendly and all that. Topic is anything non-controversial, but probably mostly about geeky stuff for obvious reasons.

Gentoo turns 21 years old today (26/7). Happy birthday to Gentoo!

I would also like to show my appreciation for all of you who's involved in the project (developers and contributors) for making one of the best Linux based operating systems out there.

Thank you!

I found an actual use for my old Go sticker. We can now use this second-hand bought birthday card for a little girl who turns 4 years old soon.

It's perhaps the first time I've had any use of the Go language. :D

Here's a decade old screenshot with Android. I was running MIUI with my own SuaveHD icon theme. It was the good old days when extensive customizing your phone was still doable, easy and fun.

I just applied for a job that (after applying for it) required me to answer some tests about my ability to understand (my own native language) Swedish.

One of the text explained that they always require a "good and proper" appearance of their employees, and if you have tattoos, they have to be physically covered with clothes.

Well. I'm not covering my tattoos. If you don't like how I look, I don't like you either.

As of 2021, the only supported way to install Tiny Tiny RSS is via Docker now.

Well. If the hostility haven't scared away all users already, this probably will.

Microsoft has it's own Linux based operating system now. It's called CBL-Mariner (Common Base Linux).

It's rather annoying that Google throttles the bandwidth for you when you watch videos on YouTube via a VPN, to the point where it's not possible to watch in a higher quality than like 480p.

This is a 14 year old desktop screenshot with Ubuntu, GNOME 2 and Beryl. I think it still holds up pretty good if I may say so myself. :)

I'm considering to upgrade my Raspberry Pi 2 to the newer Raspberry Pi 4.

If you have one and are willing to part with it, contact me! I'm located in Sweden.

Here's a little thing that may not be obvious to many people....

When you install an open-source app from Google Play or the Apple app store, there is no guarantee that what you install actually matches the public code.

@fdroidorg are doing a great service. They independently build the public source code for apps from scratch, review for common issues, and publish their builds. Thanks to "reproducible builds" it's possible to verify they do not tamper with the code.
