  • FOSS Donations

    Let me start by saying that the purpose of this entry is not to say “Look at how selfless I am for donating money to FOSS organizations or projects” so, with that in mind, I will not list any specific quantities because that is not the point I am trying to make. Having written the […]

  • Optimizing my yunohost wordpress blog

    After my last update about my blog migration, basically all I did was install LiteSpeed Cache plugin and mess around with it. For reference, lots of documentation goodness here The most important part to note is that I kept getting bugged by both Google’s PageSpeed Insights and GTmetrix to enable text compression. After some time […]

  • Terminal bling

    Followup on my previous entry related to my wallpaper. I just wanted my terminal to look nice since I spend quite some time on it. I use zsh by the way, but there are similar instructions for bash as well. I’ll just document the steps I followed (2 alternatives) powerline-shell Install powerline-shell (more configuration options […]

  • My nerdy wallpaper

    Just recently I found an interesting package in AUR, it’s called pacwall. Since I use Manjaro the installation quite simple through pacman or pamac. The goal is simple, to have a visual representation of your installed packages and their dependencies. for more information and how to use it consult the repo I just typed: pacwall […]

  • Migration to WordPress

    In recent days I’ve been busy trying to get my blog up and running on my cheapo Raspberry Pi + Yunohost server setup. The process was fun, so here’s a blog entry about migrating my blog (blogception?) from a writefreely instance to my self hosted wordpress instance. Why though? To put it simply: because I […]

  • Progress report on a more FOSS/FLOSS, decentralized digital life

    For context, let me refer to my very first entry, the idea was basically looking for alternatives, so here’s the long awaited progress report: Changes already in place Using Mastodon instead of Twitter Using Pixelfed instead of Instagram (On Android) Using NewPipe instead of YouTube, this one is quite cool, it has all the features […]

  • My Raspberry Pi server with yunohost

    I will try to make this entry resemble a tutorial, hopefully this ends up being useful to someone. Why start over? I had been playing around with Open Media Vault before (see this entry for details), but it was mainly based on docker images and I could never get Nextcloud up and running (the closest […]

  • Thank you yunohost

    Ever since I started looking into the Fediverse, FOSS/FLOSS, privacy and self-hosting I was pleasantly surprised by how engaging and helpful the community can be. As an example: in Fosstodon all my interactions have been very nice, from sharing random unrelated stuff to asking for advice on more technical matters everyone has always been helpful […]

  • Some thoughts on consumerism

    I like to keep up to date with the latest news on the consumer electronics market (newest phones, laptops and processors) and lately I’ve found myself thinking: “That looks like a great phone/laptop, I should get it”. Then the thought that usually follows is “Maybe I don’t really need it” That’s the thing, media constantly […]
