Real life horror story: friend of mine trying to take remote exam on a Macbook Pro with ANSI layout; the lab computer has ISO Italian layout. The test is focused on the software MATLAB where one has to input symbols like [] {} ' " ; : / The best part is that this friend also uses non-QWERTY layout. Let us all hope the best for him.

Itโ€™s been a while since my last toot. Well, I decided to leave Italy and continue my studies remotely. Not a easy decision to make, but I do not see the point of staying if everything can be done online.

Thanks to the hardworking people at Poste Italiane, I can still receive my new toy๐Ÿงธ during this difficult time

As I'm working/studying from home and will be like this for a considerable amount of time in the future, I desperately need Gnome 3.36's new feature: do not disturb ๐Ÿ˜… Come on openSUSE Tumbleweed, Arch people's got the update for a week by now

Running Android apps on my #AlpineLinux laptop using #Anbox. I feel dirty now.

Coming soon on a postmarketOS phone near you!

Today's all about connection. Mosh has been working reliably for me as an SSH alternative. Great tool, saves a lot of hassle trying to re-connect

After using Gnome Evolution for a week, I switched back to Thunderbird. Evolution's connection seems unstable and constantly requires re-login

I did some (well, several hours actually) research on FIDO2 security keys, and decided to give SoloKey a try! Ordered 2 USB-A model, one with NFC and one without. Hope COVID-19 will not delay my shipment significantly!

We are very sad to announce the cancellation of the @opensuse Summit Dublin. ๐Ÿ˜ข

What's wrong with openSUSE Tumbleweed repos? I cannot refresh them...nor install any packages. Plz don't fuck me up again

openSUSE Tumbleweed on my laptop crashed again๐Ÿ˜ก Looking at journalctl and couldnโ€™t find any clue. Iโ€™m starting to think maybe itโ€™s a hardware issue.

Want to make a podcast? Listen to Jupiter Extras 56 with Joe Ressington where he explains the basics. He gave this as a talk at OggCamp last year. Good info for the budding podcaster.
