3 Days (more or less) with the PineTime

What is a PineTime? PineTime is a Smartwatch, developed by Pine64 and built on a Nordic Semiconductor nRF52832 SOC. I am currently running InfiniTime on it, at version 1.9. A Linux based OS for this smart watch. It sports a 1.3 inch 240x240px display, is water proof to about 1m of submersion, it has 512kb […]

A way too long silence

As some might have noticed, my blog has been silent for a while now, this was due to a lot happening in my private life lately, which I am not going into detail here, but let’s just say most is sorted out by now and with this post more regular updates are planned and going […]

Eating my own words

As some readers might have noticed, a while ago I tried living on a Mac instead of a Linux PC and at the end of the experiment decided to go back to what I was used to using and ditched the Mac in favour of my Ubuntu machine. But, about a month ago, while working […]

JingPad A1 Android App Support

It has been a while since I wrote about the progress of Jing-OS, the “Future Mobile OS based on Linux“, so I figured I should do that again. At the time of writing this post, Jing-OS is at version 1.1.1. The positive things The team at Jingling has put a lot of work into this […]

Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité

not sure about the last part….. As for most of us, my daily (work) life consists of using multiple devices and with the addition of CoVid-19 the homeoffice introduced a number more of them. So what are we dealing with here? I have a PC at work, that runs Windows10, I have a PC at […]

E-Mail is dead, long live E-Mail!

Prologue I am not 100% certain, but SMTP is, as far as I know, one of the oldest protocols on the internet, going way back to the 1980s. So E-Mail and SMTP are with us for about 40 years now, so it must be doing something right. At least for me it is still one […]

A tempting fruit

With the recent step by Canonical to remove the native Firefox in Ubuntu and replace it with a snap, something strange happened. My main computer is a beast, it sports an AMD Ryzen 9 3950X, that is a 16 core CPU, hyper threaded (or whatever AMD calls it), 32GB of RAM and a super fast […]

The JingPad A1, my first review

A product review I never did a product review before, since to me they are mostly pointless. If a new iPad shows up you know what you are getting, the same OS as the last one had, just with a little more power to it. If a new OS shows up, what ever company supplies […]

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 […]
