Flutter, Day 02

Dear diary,today I resumed my journey into Flutter and like every good story, this one starts with a disaster. Not a Flutter related one, but I am getting ahead of myself. I started like on any other day of developing, good coffee, plug my MacBook Air into my external monitor and open up VS-Code. Quickly […]

Flutter, Day 01

Dear diary, today I started to get into developing with flutter. Why you ask? Well, the promise of this language is, it will compile on just about any system you can imagine, deploy to Android, iOS, Linux, Mac, Web and Windows with just one code basis. Sounds good right? How it went? I landed flat […]

My workflow changed (Partially)

I am not sure when this started happening, but I while back I could not live at the office without having at least three monitors to work on, one for mail, one for coding and one for server connections, testing and debugging. I gradually reduced that to two. Also, when multiple workspaces were an option, […]

The “Far out” Apple Event

I don’t usually care much about these Apple events, but the “Far Out” event of September 7th, 2022 is one I did actually watch after it was held and I saw the new devices. A couple of years back, Apple called themselves courages for removing the headphone jack from their phones, so they could sell […]

Why I don’t miss mainstream social media

Plenty actually, but more on that later. My main experience with most of these wasn’t something I’d care to repeat. And that is not the […]

The F(x)Tec Pro1-X

A different kind of product review This is the most brilliant phone I ever had, it has plenty of power, the keyboard in combination with its free-software operating system Ubuntu Touch, the ability to plug it into an external monitor and use it as a fully blown desktop make it one of a kind and […]

9 months on a Mac

If you followed this blog for a while, you might remember that back in December 2021 my, until then, trusty Thinkpad decided it was time to blow up its battery and I, for some reason, decided to get a MacBook Air as my new computer. This post will be about the ups and downs I […]

Thoughts about energy and sustainability

My recent blog post, that was basically me just venting my annoyance about tech that is designed to be e-waste soon, did spark a couple of interesting responses. So I figured I might not be the only one interested in living a bit more sustainable. Also recent events and the possibility of Austria and Europe […]

Unlock your stupid bootloader

Dear tech companies, please stop locking the bootloader of your devices. The second I hand you money and get the device in return it stops being yours and starts being mine. What I choose to do with it is up to me, nobody else. What OS I run on it is up to me. What […]
