Looking forward not back

The year to come Many blogs and social media platforms tend to offer a look at the year that passed at this time, but I decided to do things differently so here are things I am looking forward to in 2022 or at least hope will happen. Tech in general, Linux and also non tech […]

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 […]

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 […]

The search for the ultimate computing experience, Pt. 2

It has been a while First up, sorry, it took longer than expected and I am still not there yet, but at least I have some insight now I am ready to share. Where I am at by now In short, about to give up. A bit longer, keep on reading. The issues As you […]
