Security by obscurity? Finally found the WiFi list on my new Fedora Xfce installation - an invisible icon in the panel.

I made myself an IQ test with this drilling template. I'm confident passing it for each door handle. πŸ™‚

Mind the router firmware.

There might be an anonymous device in your home, silently tracking your evry move on the network 24/7, harvesting personal information, reporting to it's master (and that's not you). Proprietary router firmware is scary.

I'm switching from Adobe Lightroom to Darktable. Seems very promising! But it's gonna take a while to remap the keyboard shortcuts in my head.

I need some Linux help. My (only) computer won't start. Linux Mint 19.1. Boots into emergency mode. Found this in the journal, and some more red lines.

Tried explaining mobile communications to my parents.
