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

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

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:…

I think we are fucked

I think we are fucked

Honestly, I think we are fucked. :D I just think the world is dumber and dumber, to the point of idiocracy, and it is getting worse. To clear the air I will debunk the "World is getting better" notion in a very soon to release TROM ebook, but this is about something else. The trade…

New website, hurdles writing books, plans for the future, and more

New website, hurdles writing books, plans for the future, and more

NEW WEBSITE: My old website was based on a very old template that made the website unstable and unsecured. So much so that it was hacked several times in the past few months. Nothing that big of a deal since it was hacked by automated bots looking for flaws in the code of Wordpress themes and…
