EDID for ViewSonic Vx2025wm

2 minute read

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.

Testing out silicone sponges

less than 1 minute read

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.

Why did you become a vegetarian?

“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.

WP Table Of Contents plugins

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.

Hibernate after suspend (on Fedora)

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.
