@aral Hollywood should take a good look to grv and similar tools and finally make hacking scenes in movies somewhat similar to reality 😁
@linux Never ending debate: Linux or Windows 🤔 Well in my case I not only use Linux Mint on desktops, but also choose CentOS and Ubuntu for servers. Ever since Microsoft introduced fancy bootloader in Vista I refuse to fix other's computers and either reinstall them to Linux Mint or advise to visit someone else 😄 So far so good. Typically under Linux problems are much more technical but solvable whereas in Windows things either just work or are next to impossible to address 🤓
Decent #Android version - #AndroidPie allows setting custom #DNS resolver. One might notice it requires hostname but not typically used IP address - that's because #Google endorses and in #Android enforces to use DNS over #TLS for increased security. Therefore I had to tunnell my own resolver 🤓 As #Xbox say, new achievement unlocked 😄 #server #sysadmin #networking #opensource
@rysiek My instance (mastodon.lt) is located in Lithuania. Need help translating text to Lithuanian?

If GUI has become unresponsive because an app has crashed, you can use ttys to avoid having to do a reboot.
Ctrl+Alt+F2 switches to a full screen terminal where you can start killing processes.
Ctrl+Alt+F1 switches you back to your (hopefully no longer crashed) GUI
That’s something I learned in the late ‘00s to restart xserver because of dodgy graphics driver support, but I seem to have had to start doing again because of flatplaks or Thunderbird 😫
#HelloWorld! As active members of the open-source community, ProtonMail supports open source projects like Mastodon. Mastodon’s decentralized nature reminds us of the days when the Internet was free and not under the control of a few monopolist giants. Our followers can look forward to toots about service updates, new projects, and news on privacy.
Facebook's new patented technology can predict who else lives in your household based on the images you upload. Perhaps it is time to keep the pictures on your own server?
@mikebabb @bobstechsite That is #everdrive clone - a cartridge that has rewritable memory which can load in a selected game image from MicroSD card. So in this cartridge can literally be all 16-bit games #sega has ever released 🤩 Initial screen allows to select game image to load and then it acts as regular cartridge. When you power off, can load other game and so on. Super handy! #retrogaming
@bobstechsite That is indeed Japanese #sega #megadrive which is NTSC but has converter soldered before AV output to send PAL and therefore to be compatible with European TVs at that time. I had a photo of opened case somewhere 🤓 Interestingly back in the days there were original consoles in Lithuania but almost no genuine cartridges available to buy 😄
