I've changed Manjaro for Xubuntu 18.04 on my father's PC as it's a distro still supported for 32 bits. This was what pushed me towards the Canonical distro.

Using a distro but not being able to install anything from the repositories is absurd. Compiling every app and driver for a 32-bits system would be a pain in the ass.

Anyway, Manjaro is still the candidate for my main PC at home. I've installed it on a virtual machine with i3wm and it's fast as f*ck.

"Did your data get breached by Facebook in its vast, ghastly, 500,000,000 person valdez? The lovely folks at Digital Rights Ireland are suing Facebook under the GDPR for money damages and they'd like to sign you up to be part of the lawsuit."

The spanish police arrested the responsible of a 3D printing lab where a group of people where 3D printing guns. This was going to happen sooner or later.

A new and terrorific (techy) era, guys.

And after all, it was just a matter of disconnecting, cleaning and connecting again the pci card.

Well... As we say in my country, it's fine what it ends fine.

Manjaro unrecognise the wifi card randomly. Then, I try to install Xubuntu 18.04 and the DVD player does not open. Then, I try to install it using a pendrive and the PC does not boot from the usb as it did in the past with the correct bios settings.

It's one of those days... Let's play an Xbox game and forget the computers for today.

It's friday... but not a real friday for me as I have to spent the Saturday morning repairing the mini-webserver that I have on a Raspberry at work for displaying news of the company and other stuff.

If you complicate your life with techy things you'll have a complicated life because of thechy reasons.

The Signal decision reminds me the path that other apps has chosen: bloat them with non necessary features. Why not create another app, software, service or whatever and then (if both succeed) try to link them in some sense?

Anyway, if this new features don't interfere with the essential one, it does not bother me. Who knows... Wechat follows that path with success, but in a peculiar ecosystem like China.

It also has a 32-bit version and can display media on the terminal emulator. Oh boy! Here I go!

This morning a woman with a terrible spanish and strong Indian accent called to inform me that she works at Microsoft and the company had detected a malfuction on my Windows system.

- Me: Microsoft?!!! Windows?!!! LOL! Fu&@*ng scammers...

Upcoming Instagram changes warn users to accept activity tracking to "Help keep Instagram free of charge" 🙄 #deleteInstagram

Regardless of if you like or not Luke Smith's videos, here we have another example of why YouTube is not a reliable platform to share your content and why every youtuber should move their videos to platforms as PeerTube or/and Odysee.

What gives you more insecurity are not the youtube rules. It's their interprettion of those rules. It can change any time and this change comes with "strikes" that could close your channel with a ton of videos.

Cover your ass, youtubers.


When I setup my media server 4 TB were a decent amount of disk space, not huge, but enough. Ah, the mistake of the newbies... There's never enough disk space. Sooner or later you'll realize.

Now I have to upgrade my disk space on the media server and also on my backup server. And it's a lot of money, about 360 euros.

ncmpcpp displays a "Connection rejected" message. I've not edited my config files for a while but I've updated the system so it seems obvious that this update has messed up my music player.

It's really frustrating when something is ok, you're happy with it and then, someone f#@$ it.

People always ask which operating system #OS is suitable for #space travel. Well #Debian #Linux is in the #ISS and runs there well and reliably but in astronomical scales very close to #Earth and can run well with Earth #time. #OpenBSD on the other hand is now already prepared for #Mars missions, this clearly shows where the journey is going.


The more you know about something, the more complicated the solutions you think are.

I've been struggling to make the sound return on my laptop, finding complicated solutions to the problem and it was just that the sound was muted.

I hope it has been the first and the last stupid thing of the week!

I've spent almost one hour syncing my mobile and my tablet with my multi-factor authentication credentials on all my online services. In case I lose my mobile I will not be locked out on those (important) online services and I'll be able to change the codes in case of it's stolen.

Not having two mfa devices was a stupid mistake.
