Rooting Pico Goblin 2 4kNovember 14 2020 00:02:04

The Pico Goblin 2 is a great VR headset, with 3 degrees of freedom but a great resolution - and decent optics and specifications. Besides it having far superior specs to say, the oculus, it's also very developer friendly. I however really like to...[read more]

NoVNC with audioOctober 26 2020 23:32:43

Portability is very useful - and I like being able to take my workspace everywhere. For a while now I've had a VPS with the german provider Contabo - and so far I've only used it for shell access. Of course I'm running Gentoo so transforming the ...[read more]

The phone I'm currently using is a Ulefone Armor 3W. It's a very capable device with a 10.000mah battery that will last days if not weeks, a 8-core CPU and storage comparable to a laptop if you add a suitable microSD card. I'm using a 512gb card ...[read more]

To manual modprobe or notJune 20 2020 19:18:23

To modprobe or not to modprobe? That's the quesion. Udev has many advantages, for instance not loading unneccesary drivers - quick startup times and reduced power consumption. That is why I've recently updated my gentoo installation's initrd to s...[read more]

Linux power savingJune 20 2020 17:55:12

As I stated in my previous post I recently bought a new laptop, a Clevo PA70ES. It's quite a power hungry beast when running on maximum settings. In this post I'll be taking you through the optimisations I've done to enable this laptop to run off...[read more]
