Disaster

Yesterday disaster decided to strike and lucky me, it chose me to be struck. Let me take you through the events. I finished my work day drove home and had some dinner, during which I decided to read a book on my tablet. Whilst enjoying my food and book, an e-Mail notification popped up. My […]

The no headache Linux distribution

In December 2021 my trusty old thinkpad blew up its battery and left me without a good mobile computing option, due to availability and also a bit of curiosity I opted for a MacBook Air with the M1 Arm processor. Up until this point I was a Linux only user and kept moving between Ubuntu […]

Why I don’t miss mainstream social media

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 […]
