Chewing more than I can swallow

Chewing more than I can swallow

When I was in highschool I LOVED movies. Loved them! So much so that I would watch at least 2-3 a day, almost with no exception. 100 days means 200-300 movies, 360 days means around 1k movies.

Another ‘big’ change to VideoNeat

I started VN a few years ago because I wanted to reference good documentaries for articles or in general to say to people "Hey look at this documentary to learn more about X". You see, when it comes to documentaries there are 2 big "enemies": Bad quality Location is unreliable   1. Bad quality: A…

Me and Aaron :) – and TROM

Aaron came to visit me and we spent an entire month having really deep and interesting discussions about TROM.

The free and open source software I use on my phone

I don't use my phone that much at all, so this post won't be as interesting as the previous two where I discuss FOSS (free and open source software) that I use on my laptop. I have a Samsung Galaxy S7 with the operating system that came with - Android with Samsung flavour on top.…

How I manage all of my passwords on Linux with FOSS
