Motorola Moto G Review: Great, Bargain-Priced Android Smartphone

Filed under
Android
Reviews

Moto G has been a joy to test and use. It is lightweight, easy to hold and store in a pocket or purse, and performs nearly as well as many of the premium devices on the market.

Aside from a somewhat beefier processor and a higher-resolution screen, the Moto G could fool many users and experts alike. The new G operates like it is a much more expensive device.

Vivaldi Web Browser Turns 5, Celebrates with New Features

Thankfully I didn’t need to think too hard. The brains behind the browser made a unique play from the off, positioning Vivaldi as the choice du jour for power-users left frustrated by the tightly-controlled experiences offered elsewhere. To celebrate its fifth birthday the browser makes a new update available, Vivaldi 5.0. Vivaldi 5.0 includes a couple of interesting additions (which I’ll get to in a moment) but the real party is taking place over on Android. Vivaldi for Android 5.0 introduces something of a first: a two-tier tab bar (!). Read more

today's howtos

  1. My Homelab NAS on NixOS

    Installing NixOS was utterly painless. Using a combination of settings from the Arch Linux wiki (seriously wish I could get a printed copy of that thing, it's worth its weight in gold for how much weird arcane things you can learn from it), the NixOS wiki and copying things off of a Synology box's samba configuration file, I managed to trick everything into working and now all the machines on our tailnet can access the data on the NAS without too much trouble. Even iPhones and iPads thanks to the recent addition of SMB mounting on iP{hone|ad}OS. It also works over Tailscale too, so I can get into the NAS' files anywhere I have an internet connection.

  3. SSH alternatives for mobile, high-latency or unreliable connections

    SSH is the best option in most cases. It is widely used, usually installed by default, and clients exist for every platform. However, there are a few cases where you may want to consider an SSH alternative. I was recently looking for ways to solve these edge cases. These are my notes on alternative SSH servers.

  4. Unfortunately, damaged ZFS filesystems can be more or less unrepairable

    The second unfortunate aspect is that generally you can't repair this damage the way you can in more conventional filesystems. Because of ZFS's immutability and checksums, once something makes it to disk with a valid checksum, it's forever. If what made it to disk was broken or corrupted, it stays broken or corrupted; there's no way to fix it in place and no mechanism in ZFS to quietly fix it in a new version. Instead, the only way to get rid of the problem is to delete the corrupted data in some way, generally after copying out as much of the rest of your data as you can (and need to). If you're lucky, you can delete the affected file; if you're somewhat unfortunate, you're going to have to destroy the filesystem; if you're really unlucky, the entire pool needs to be recreated.
