In partnership with our friends at @kde we are thrilled to be embarking on this new endeavor. The configurability of GNOME paired with the simplicity of KDE - all rolled into a single package. Introducing KNOME, built using QTK3 and Kutter.

Never used an Arch based distribution during my 10 years as Linux user. Always stuck with Debian based and tried Fedora and openSUSE.

Now I am running Manjaro and wow!!! I have missed a lot. Gnome looks beautiful out of the box and the software that comes with AUR is just insane.

Anything else you wanna add, mother nature? 

I am so happy that Microsoft has killed MCSE, MCSA and MCSD. Next kill Windows Server and then move Windows to the cloud.


On some devices network-manager in Debian 10 might have an issue connecting to WiFi networks (happened on two of my devices).

I am using Wicd for the time being until this issue is sorted.

Original tweet : these guys made me fall in love with Nextcloud. Very solid instance, affordable and amazing support.

They host only open source services. I highly recommend them.

I have been seeing multiple articles on my news feed about Windows 10 update bugs and vulnerabilities in general the past few days.

Must have been a fun period for Windows 10 users. I don't know, I use Debian.

Hacks Citrix hosts, installs backdoor, patches the hosts with an anti-malware to protect from other malware except his.

Like a boss!

OK, after some testing it turns out that Office365 web apps are a buggy POS!

Any system admins here that work with Office 365? If so what is your experience compared to G Suite?

Chrome, the number of complains I receive per day cause sites are not loading is too much.

Clearing cache and cookies fixes it. Might consider deploying Brave instead since it blocks ads by default

Haven't posted in a while, between work and Fallout 4 I barely have time for anything.

9 days late but happy new year everyone!

The past two weeks were hectic for me. Too many tasks to complete with the team.

Tomorrow Season 4 of The Expanse will be out. Perfect timing 👌

Beers and Sci-fi for the weekend

At a restaurant with the family and a group of school girls are sitting at the table next to us.

They are too loud and obnoxious. I am getting old.
