Having run this blog for almost three years, I’ve toyed with the idea of creating a more prominent method for folks to leave a tip1. As I found out once again, this is no easy task without giving up privacy.
Last week, I managed to colorize all-day events on my agenda in a unique color that stands out from the rest. A bit of a hack and a workaround, this is a highly specific solution to a challenge I’ve been trying to solve for about a year. In this post, I will explain why I need this, and how I did it.
It’s probably safe to assume that if you’re here reading this, you enjoy reading personal blogs. Do yourself a favor and go to this collection of awesome blogs on hacker news. I promise your reading list will grow. When you’re back, I want to talk about Julie Evans' excellent post about blogging.
I didn’t write about my scripts in a long time. This here is a simple script that automates video editing and uploading to a remote host. I’m not sure who’s the right audience for this: if you’re experienced in bash scripts, you won’t find all the explanations needed. If you’re a novice, you might find the script too confusing. I hope you find this interesting, and please feel free to comment, I’m learning more every day.
Like many Emacs users, I’m a big fan of Dired and its cousin, TRAMP. For remote work like the one discussed here, there are two crucial tricks I want to share today.
Beyond the technical, an important part of my “Privacy Voyage” is inspiration. Books, as I’ve come to re-discover, offer plenty of that. I recently picked up a copy of Little Brother1 and I find it hard to put down.
Hack the Box was a site I knew about at some point in the past, but at the time it was an invite-only beta or something of the sort. A friend brought it back to my attention recently. I had a couple of days off of work and I figured I’ll give it a try. I’m glad I did.
I said it before and I’ll say it again: the road toward online privacy is a lonely one. Almost every time I explore further there’s discouragement and frustration. This time, I tried to learn more about GrapheneOS.
It’s fair to say that my gaming experience on Linux is now better than it has been in Windows. There’s too much to cover in one post, so I hope to give a quick overview here and expand on specifics later if there’s interest.
