  • WD, What?

    Along with my plan to delete Intel as well as M$ from my LAN I’ve been looking for a Network Addressable Storage (NAS) unit. Of course Western Digital makes a bunch but their latest and greatest have exactly zero mention of GNU/Linux. So, I was put off.

  • Can you replace a computer with your mobile

    Android phones have reached the point where they have similar specifications in terms of CPU and Ram than most budget laptops, but are held back for phone centric tasks. The truth is, your phone is ready to replace your laptop or desktop if you give it a chance.

    I am no stranger to the ideal of using a phone to replace most computing requirements, I love my Galaxy S5 and every chance I get to hook it to a screen and keyboard I do, but the Android UI is not great for larger screens.

  • Building an xdg-app – part 4

    In part 1 we created a very small application. All it did was print to stdout. Such a program is very easy to sandbox. In fact, since we didn’t specify any permissions for it this application already runs in a very tight sandbox.

Planner Is a Great GTD and To-Do List App for the Linux Desktop

If you’re looking for a free app to track all of your projects and life goals, or even keep track of your calendar so you don’t miss anything, then Planner is for you. I recently wrote about the rebirth of a really good to-do list app for the GNOME desktop, Getting Things GNOME, and a reader, which turned out to be the lead developer, suggested I take a look at Planner too. And so I did, and now I don’t want to use another GTD app. Here’s why. I’ve installed Planner on my Ubuntu 20.04 LTS machine from Flathub. Since I already had Flatpak installed, the installation was painless and one click away. All you have to do is click on the “Install” button on the Flathub page and Ubuntu Software will take care of the rest. Read more

  • The Humble Warhammer Bundle 2020 is live plus a big Warhammer sale

    WAAAGH! The Humble Warhammer Bundle 2020 is live and I don't think I need to explain the type of games that are included in this one. A name that very much speaks for itself, you either love it or hate it. I've grown to very much enjoy Warhammer and didn't actually discover my love of it until Feral Interactive ported Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II back in 2016. We did a lot of livestreams of it back then, great fun.
