Ventoy | Multi-ISO Bootable USB Drive Made Easy

From time to time, I like to try a new distribution of Linux, not because I am dissatisfied with openSUSE as that is NOT the case but like going to another town to visit and see what culinary options they have to offer. I like to try out another Plasma distribution or something that is … Continue reading Ventoy | Multi-ISO Bootable USB Drive Made Easy

Microsoft Edge Browser on openSUSE Linux

I am not one to jump on any bandwagon or get excited over anything unless I have good reason. I don't generally get too excited about browsers. I have found them frustrating, to say the least. In the beginning of the last decade, Google Chrome came onto the scene in spectacular fashion. It was light, … Continue reading Microsoft Edge Browser on openSUSE Linux

FISH | Friendly Interactive SHell on openSUSE

BASH has been good to me and I have enjoyed my time with BASH very much. I have learned so much about the inner workings of Linux through the terminal and BASH has been there my whole experience. "Tab" completion has been a marvelous gift to the terminal user experience. I have never had a … Continue reading FISH | Friendly Interactive SHell on openSUSE

Noodlings 21 | Inspiration Is Around You

21st Noodling of jam packed excitement... not really. This is the 21st hot-pocket-sized podcast that won't scorch roof of your mouth. I have a small collection of vintage or near vintage gaming consoles. I lean mostly in the Nintendo party as I think they have a great grasp on what is fun. I don't always … Continue reading Noodlings 21 | Inspiration Is Around You

Rickroll in the Terminal

This is a mostly useless blathering but since I got a good laugh out of it, I wanted to index this bit of fun and share it because that is what you do, right? Share nonsense on the Internet? Isn't that why they invented the thing? I was watching "Adrian's Digital Basement" on YouTube and … Continue reading Rickroll in the Terminal

WTTR.in | Weather Forecast in the Terminal

In the spirit of using this site as my public facing notebook. I sharing with you and future me, what might be, the most beautiful terminal based weather forecast application wttr.in. Rather than babble endlessly about all my reasons for my love for the terminal, I am going to link you here to my Tmux … Continue reading WTTR.in | Weather Forecast in the Terminal

Noodlings 20 | No Linux for 10 Days

20th Noodling, just like the previous, delivered inconsistently! The 20th cookie sized podcast, but not one of those oatmeal raisin type of cookies, more like something with chocolate chips. Chinese food containers are a feat of clever engineering. Most people just toss them in the bin once they are done with them but if you … Continue reading Noodlings 20 | No Linux for 10 Days

Modern Computer in a Commodore 64 Shell

Of sorts. The Commodore 64 was my first computer and there is something about the classic, beige bread-bin shape that brings a kind of retro-excitement. I have many fond childhood memories of flicking the switch on the side of the case where I was greeted with that "Ready" prompt and the blinking cursor on the … Continue reading Modern Computer in a Commodore 64 Shell

Dell Inspiron 20 3048 Black Screen

System failures are not always what you think they might be and had I known what the failure was, I would have saved a lot of time of fiddling around. This is a memo to future me and perhaps a cautionary tale for your future technology adventures. In short, I could have saved a lot … Continue reading Dell Inspiron 20 3048 Black Screen

VisualBoy Advance | Gameboy Emulation on Linux

I came upon a situation where I was not able to play any of my Gameboy games when away from home. I stumbled upon a rather fantastic solution that really needs to be shared with the Linux world. An emulator called VisualBoy Advanced. Be sure to check out my blathering about mGBA, another Game Boy … Continue reading VisualBoy Advance | Gameboy Emulation on Linux
