I’ve been working with HTML in low-level languages like C/C++ and I must say that it’s been a rather frustrating experience. One would think that the task I’m doing should have been done ages ago, since the conception of the project. Alas, that’s not quite right. What you fail to realize is that you should… Continue reading The inadequacy of HTML, delving into C, and pondering remote jobs
The aftermath… of all my chasing is that I got nothing. You heard me right. I spent days figuring out what was wrong just to receive one hell of a slap to the face that the OS doesn’t necessarily claim the memory back. But, I also noticed that memory started to be freed after changing… Continue reading Aftermath of memory management / designing for mobile / the need of something better
I’ve been killing some time with other Linux distributions. As far as I can tell one of my favorite Desktop Environments is still struggling out there. plasmashell crashes everywhere, right now the right side of the panel is a mess with icons overlapping on each other. It makes me a sad penguin! I think… in… Continue reading Looking back: OpenSUSE 42.1 with latest KDE packages
Update: I was able to fix YCM. Pretty happy about that 🙂 What a day it has been for me. I’m totally wasted after pretty much driving all day, I had no real plans for today either way but I wanted to get a bit of a head start with GTK3. I’m a vim user,… Continue reading A tiny bite of GTK3
I’ve been dual booting to Linux Mint in my laptop for a few days. As to why Linux Mint… I’m interested in elementaryOS in general, but as I see it right now eOS isn’t ready and Linux Mint provides a full fledged desktop and a solid experience. If you have heard me talk about linux… Continue reading Well, let’s keep it minty?
As a Final Fantasy IX fan sometimes I look at the codename they gave it and grin as I recall the fond memories playing throughout FF9. I scratched off elementary OS on the grounds that while it was heading towards the right path the terminal lacked customization. Sure, I could have called another terminal ….… Continue reading Another look at elementary OS (Freya)
So recently my laptop(the very one I’m using right now) got crippled by an Ubuntu 15.04 with an error Error getting authority: Error initializing authority: Could not connect: No such file or directory (g-io-error-quark, 1) Now, see this error appeared out of nowhere after using Kubuntu 15.04 for months, the last update killed it. So… Continue reading Disappointed
I just finished the initial phase of troubleshooting one hell of an annoying problem recently. The symptoms for this is quite something at this time or age, and I’m even more surprised about the driver that’s causing it. Overview of the symptoms (usually with xterm or urxvt) Screen flickers: constant screen flickering (a little is… Continue reading Rendering problems with virtual terminal emulators
Out of nowhere I had a sudden urge to know “how many people have tried to brute force my VPS?”. The thing about these brute force attacks is that they are all automated and you can’t really filter out “manual” attacks. I’m surprised that, even though I’m some random person in the internet with no… Continue reading VPS + SSH bruteforce attacks
There are a few things I’ve been wanting to write about. I guess I should start by saying that a new Ghost theme is under way for this site. I installed Fedora 22 back on my main computer along with Windows 10 in the same HDD. Both OS have stabilized, I’ve learnt to accept the… Continue reading Home, sweet home.
