A retraction

Yes, it has come to this. I have written something on the internet, that is not correct. I am referring to my post about the environmental gain of using EVs (https://www.thewkblog.com/?p=355) As was pointed out to me, my numbers were not up to date and thus I would like to correct my previous statement. I […]

Are electric vehicles going to save us?

With all the marketing and laws imposed on us, I started to think and look into things. As I turns out, I got an opinion and have things to say! Lucky you dear reader, ha? What are we actually looking at? First up, no one has a problem with cars as such, except for some […]

In recent news

Now, in recent news a well known computer company in California announced they would start scanning their customers phones for shell we call it illegal content. Since many blogs started blowing up about this I figured I should write here again and about something completely different, because why go with the masses…. Software I use […]

Why I still prefer Linux over anything else

And why I don’t run Arch btw… I think most people following this blog should by now be aware that my operating system of choice is neither Windows nor MacOS, although I recently tried both again. The fact I did run both of them again and tried to port my workflow all over again made […]

20,000 leagues under the seas of docker, part 1

They used a whale as their icon, what other headline was I supposed to use? So call me Aronnax and let’s search for that mysterious whale everyone is talking about. Please do not expect this to be a review of docker or anything like that, my intention for these pages is to serve as a […]

Taking on Spotify, amazon music, google play music and apple music

Well, at least one of them was creative when it came to choosing a name… But before we get started, I would like to make one little remark, this blog entry was requested by two people on fosstodon.org. At least I think that is what they meant by: “Please blog about your experience”. So people […]
