Romania, Romanians, and their craziness

Romania, Romanians, and their craziness

I am originally from Romania but I live in Spain most of the time - for the past 3-4 years I haven't been to Romania at all, but this year I said: "Let's give it a try for the winter period.". Been in Romania for 2 months now and I start to freak out when…

The free and open source software I use on my phone

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

How I manage all of my passwords on Linux with FOSS

For the past years I’ve been using LastPass to manage my passwords. This is a proprietary freemium app that basically stores all of your passwords behind a master password. As long as you remember the master password you can unlock all of the stored passwords. This app has a browser extension to make this super…

The free and open source software that I use on my laptop

Free and Open Source Software = FOSS All of my life I used Windows as an Operating System together with proprietary software that I often pirated because it was too expensive. That changed some 5-6 years ago when I discovered Linux. Since then I've mainly used free and open source software and I absolutely love it.…

TROM Google Account back!? WTF!

TROM Google Account back!? WTF!

As you may know Google deleted my entire TROM Google account in May this year without a warning. Everything I had: gmail, picasa photos, google drive, API, everything ... except for my Youtube account, that was there but I could not access anymore. So it was weird as fuck. Contacted them and they said they…

Net Neutrality Bullshit.

Net Neutrality Bullshit.

The idea goes like this: some companies want to make the Internet like cable TV - if you want to access certain websites you may have to pay extra, and stuff like that. So for example the BIG BOSS company that provides Internet to people might be like: “We have a GREAT package containing Youtube,…

VideoNeat is back, and why that’s important.

VideoNeat is back, and why that’s important.

A month and a half ago, half of VideoNeat went offline. I knew this will happen one day and I was prepared to let it go. To move away from the project, because it was too much of a hassle to rebuild it in case it will happen. But I spent the last month and a…

Dealing with ‘fake’ news.

Dealing with ‘fake’ news.

Someone sent me this question last night via TROM FAQ: "What can we do, individually, to better distinguish factual news from fake news?" But becuase the answer is quite long, I'll post it here as a blog post. I will touch upon this topic in more detail in a future TROM ebook, but here are…

Why Jacque is not dead

Why Jacque is not dead

Since I found out about Jacque and TVP I knew in the back of my head that this day will come. I will be around to hear that Jacque has died. That day has come and although not a surprising news considering Jacque's age, it still gave me chills. Just a little background: I found…

The end of VideoNeat and TROM Series youtube channel

The end of VideoNeat and TROM Series youtube channel

Last night I finished rendering the next TROM Series episode, 1h 16min long episode. Today I wanted to upload it to our TROM Series Youtube channel and surprise: I wasn't logged in and my password was invalid. I was also unable to recover it. Nothing to say that my entire google account for TROM series (gmail:…
