As a privacy evangelist, I'd like to educate on everything privacy. Though, education alone won't cut it. We need solid alternatives for privacy invading services.

Hence, I've started h3b (h3b.nl). The first available tool is a Searx instance, hosted on OpenBSD (duh):


Default language set to Dutch, but it's easily changed in the preferences (h3b.nl/koekel/preferences).

Hey everyone! Just introducing myself. I’m one of the hosts of a #DS9 podcast called Deep Space Noob, where a life long Trekkie (me) watches every episode of Deep Space Nine with his best friend (my co-host), who’s never seen Star Trek before.

The show is a hell of a lot of fun, and I’d appreciate you giving it a listen, but if that’s not in the cards, I’m always up for some Trek talk!



I didn't have any problem with Micro-USB until I got a Pixel with USB-C and now I fumble around with Micro-USB plugs like an idiot for thirty seconds trying to plug them in the right way.

When I was a kid we had a coffee store in the mall. They sold beans but you couldn't actually order coffee. Anyway, it was just the best running around smelling all the different kinds of coffee. In hindsight though I'm really glad the owner never yelled at us for running around his store and being typical little kids. Anyway, that's my random pointless anecdote for the day.

Unix will give you enough rope to shoot yourself in the foot. If you didn’t think rope would do that, you should have read the man page.

I've seen several people say that Wil Wheaton's explanation of the whole list incident isn't adequate or sincere enough, but there's no way to measure that. To be honest it seems like there is no way he could explain or apologize "enough" to satisfy the mob. So the rage just escalates with every "unsatisfactory" response.

I'm as nervous to express my honest beliefs, thoughts, and opinions here as anywhere else online after seeing the way Mastodon users can pummel someone that offends.

I really, really hate articles that end with some variant of "But what do you think? Let us know in the comments below!" or "But in the end, the best <thing> for you really depends on what you want to do." I'm not saying you have to flame anyone who likes a different window manager or video editor, but it's OK to just say you think something is the best choice.

I'm determined to get something a little more exotic than Ubuntu 18.04 running on my old MacBook Pro, but so far most distros are just refusing to work. Starting to wonder if the hardware is finally giving up the ghost 😕
