Google Workspace is down for the past 10 mins now.

So after the Centos latest news, who is still using it in production environment? If you are, which server distribution are you switching to?

Just found out that my 9 years old daughter is playing PUBG on her grandmother's phone behind our backs.

We have Google's Family Link on her phone, but kids will always find a way to get what they want.


Love me some satanic music in the morning. Puts me in a good mood 🕺

Been away for a while. The past few months I was overloaded at work but now things started to be calm.

Took a break from gaming and social media. But now I am back, playing No Man's Sky and will start bothering you all here!

A couple of days back I met another dog owner at the neighborhood park and he is a dentist. Since then we keep meeting every evening to walk our dogs.

This evening he told me that uses pclinuxos on his personal laptop and he loves it. He is also a KDE fan and his first distro was SUSE in mid 2000s.

Spent the whole evening discussing Linux and Open Source with him. It was really cool.

Well I think we still have the two cats, haven't seen them since the dog joined the family today morning 😂

So my wife adopted a new dog.

1 dog, 2 cats and 2 birds. Should keep us busy 😓

So ubuntu-dock extension is the culprit behind gnome shell crashing when exiting app folder and the multiple app menu dots that appear on the right.

Disabling it and using dash to dock makes using Ubuntu 20.04 a pleasant experience. Along with replacing snap store with gnome software of course

Three weeks in and openSUSE Tumbleweed has been great. A very solid distribution.

Installed Leap 15.1 on my work laptop too.

So openSUSE Leap 15.2 is in beta now. Why is it not getting more coverage?

Debian 10.4 update is out with some nice fixes and updates. My favorite is wpa update that fixes MAC randomisation issue which affected my WN722N TP-Link adapter.

Debian 10.4 release notes:

I feel like I am in a constant war with the authority. Trying to setup a remote from home environment is a constant battle.

VPN blocked, Hamachi, Zerotier blocked, port forwarding blocked.

This is too much.

Removed Ubuntu 20.04 from my gaming PC. Wasn't a pleasant experience. Replaced it with Ubuntu Budgie 20.04 and it seems to be better so far.

Budgie desktop is a fair balance between aesthetic and usability.
