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 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.
The ASUS UX305UA is an ultrabook with the Skylake microarchitecture – the (as of writing) latest iteration in Intel processors. Unfortunately, Skylake support on Linux wasn’t really a granted thing the time the device got released. Fortunately it’s gotten a lot better of late.
… is not really that hard. Just annoying. Since OnePlus’ USB ID is not in the default adb list, you need to add it yourself: echo "0x2a70" >> ~/.android/adb_usb.ini where 0x2a70 is the identifier for OnePlus. (you can find this with lsusb)
I’ve recently acquired some TP-Link ‘Easy Smart’ managed switches – cheap, decently built (metal casing), and a lot of features above the usual unmanaged stuff:
As an addendum to my previous post on how to install Debian Sid on the XPS13, I’ve been having issues with suspend – the laptop would sporadicaly not go to sleep properly on lid close, or it wouldn’t come out of suspend afterwards.
I purchased a Dell XPS 13 Ultrabook, to replace my ageing Apple Macbook 2,1. After six years of daily use, it’s (over)due to retire.
Last year I installed Debían on my mother in law’s network (an Acer Ferrari One 200). The thing ran fine, but gave some “firmware bug?” warnings. Since no new BIOS’ were available at that time, I left it at that.
I recently got a Box account with 50 gB of online storage (see this thread on XDA on how to get one).
I wanted to get Adobe AIR to work on my 64-bit Debian Sid installation, to try out some other twitter clients, more specifically Saezuri. (On a side note: the offering of twitter clients on linux is … mediocre. Bad, even. The (imho) best one is Pino, but it has problems of it’s own).

Since I have a rather well-scaled desktop PC (nothing really fancy by today’s specs, but it’s underused as it is), and my gf sometimes wants to use it, and sometimes we both want to use it at the same time, I decided to turn it into a multiseat configuration.
I recently purchased an Alcatel Onetouch X200 3G USB modem, to be able to use internet on various locations where there is no wired or wifi available. Works fine under Windows/Mac OS X, bit more of a hassle under Linux.
A good friend of mine introduced me to a new game: World Of Goo!
I was bored recently, and decided to install Linux on my Macbook. I opted for the distribution I like best – Debian (unstable/Sid).
Sade linked me to this nice ebook by Neil Gaiman, Neverwhere. Unfortunately, you need Adobe Digital Editions for it, which only exists for Windows and Mac. Since she’s a Linux user, that one didn’t really fly with her.
Here’s a short how-to to get the iodine dns tunnel working on your Mac.

ATV Sync is a simple script that allows you to easily synchronise the premade ATV PalmOS databases to your PalmOS-powered handheld.
This is a collection of scripts that allow you to download complete archives of web-published comics.
This script allows you to download POP3 mailboxes over an HTTP interface. I wrote it to allow me to get my mail through the company’s http proxy server.
