I recently reinstalled Fedora on my desktop machine, which has (amongst others) a ViewSonic Vx2025wm screen connected to it. It’s an oldie, but still works (quite well). Unfortunately, Linux just complained that it didn’t get a proper EDID out of it, and refused to activate it – might also explain why Windows doesn’t recognise it as a PnP monitor – I guess the chip fried somewhere along the way.
I was reading some stories (don’t ask my where anymore – might have been on reddit or Lifehacker) about silicone sponges to replace (the often gross) disposable sponges we used in the kitchen. Sounded like a great idea – something that you don’t need to throw away, that doesn’t become a bacterial warzone, durable.. but after trying it out I’ll be going back to the disposables.
“Why did you become a vegetarian?” – It’s one of those questions I get asked fairly frequently, when it comes to food choices / eating habits. I recently had the question again, at work – I’ve changed jobs recently, and it came up during a discussion. I guess it’s a good question, as not everyone has the same reasons.
I was using the rather nice Table Of Contents+ WordPress plugin to auto-generate tables of content on certain posts/pages, but that has since been abandoned. Luckely Steven A. Zahm took over development, and presto, we have the Easy Table of Contents plugin. You can peruse the sourcecode on GitHub.
I recently found out that Windows has this nice feature where, after suspending your laptop, it’ll go to hibernate after a while to preserve battery. Seems like a really cool feature, saves your battery too, so I wanted it on my linux installation. I’m using Fedora 27 right now.
