Regarding my previous post some witty people may have figured that this was a joke: The last post before that one was the long delayed February one and I wrote that I simply couldn't post the next one (as I cannot stand the new WP editor). That could make said previous post the April one. … Continue reading Neunix: Eerie transitioning to Geminispace
Retreat… and reboot! Is there life outside of the Web?
Dear readers, the time has come for some fundamental re-organization of my EerieLinux blog. The impact of this year's pandemic as well as family matters (a new family member that demands quite a bit of care!) have forced me to post-pone many of my posts that I usually published at least monthly. Right when I … Continue reading Retreat… and reboot! Is there life outside of the Web?
Should you abandon Linux and switch to *BSD?
The popularity of Linux skyrockets these days: More and more companies adapt it and even the just-above-average who doesn't accept the imposition that is called "Windows 10" is often open to try it out. However at the same time, the popularity of said System seems to be fading among some of the more technical people, … Continue reading Should you abandon Linux and switch to *BSD?
A glimpse into 2020
When you read this, the old year will be over (well, depending on the time zone you live in). If we're lucky, this might be the year to get our hands on the first affordable RISC-V hardware that can actually run a Unix-like operating system. It should definitely be the year to get interesting devices … Continue reading A glimpse into 2020
Eerie Linux: 5 years of bloggin’!
The Eerie Linux blog silently turned 5 years just last month. I thought a while about what kind of anniversary post I should write to celebrate the fifth birthday. I was even thinking of closing the blog on that day or at least announce that I would no longer be able to write posts regularly. … Continue reading Eerie Linux: 5 years of bloggin’!
Top things that I missed in 2015
Another year of blogging comes to an end. It has been quite full of *BSD stuff so that I'd even say: Regarding this blog it has been a BSD year. This was not actually planned but isn't a real surprise, either. I've not given up on Linux (which I use on a daily basis as … Continue reading Top things that I missed in 2015
Puffy goes Pacman!
This post reveals a new Arch distribution: ArchBSD/Open! I know that this comes unexpectedly; I was surprised, too, after all. In fact it was just by accident that I learned about the new project that will be officially announced on the OpenBSD Journal any day now. The new distro's leaked logo A bit of background … Continue reading Puffy goes Pacman!
Craven New World – or how to ruin the net
Alright. I never expected to write about anything remotely "political" on my blog... It's about technical things, right? Ok, ok, free software is "political" all by itself. Kind of. But that's about it. While at times I'm really sick of what happens on the world, that doesn't fit well on a blog about computer topics. … Continue reading Craven New World – or how to ruin the net
Eerie’s second birthday!
Today is the first day of my third blogging year. It's hard to believe that it has been two years already but I checked the date of the first post: 06/24/2012. So it is really true. Two years are a long time and since the last birthday post a lot has happened again. For that … Continue reading Eerie’s second birthday!
