Webview Manager 8.1.3 is out

/ | 1 Comment on Webview Manager 8.1.3 is out

We did it! We fixed all the bugs! Well, all of them we know about, anyway. In this release we’ve changed quite a bit. We’ve cleaned up some unused sepolicy for added security. App installs during boot are also properly fixed, so we no longer need that sepolicy. In addition, we’ve cleaned up download logic […]

Android: what a (not) great ecosystem!

/ | Leave a Comment

Ah, android: can’t live with it, can’t live without it. The always present mobile operating system, the only competitor of iOS. But throughout the years, our favorite droid has changed, a lot. But you know what hasn’t changed? How fragmented it all is. And the damage google does to the ecosystem. The only thing iOS […]

Cryptocurrency: the future or not?

/ | Leave a Comment

Ah, cryptocurrency, or crypto for short! The media does so love that word. Crypto this, crypto that, crypto is life! Crypto, that thing that’ll magically solve anything and everything. Or that weird thing that only nerds use, depending on who you are. But what the heck is crypto anyway? Should you be excited? And the […]

Chrome vs Firefox: the browser wars

/ | Leave a Comment

There is much, or was at one point, much discussion about which of the two browsers was better. Which is more secure? Which has better performance? Which has more features? Is it slick chrome? Or aging Firefox? Years later, the former is on top, with the latter falling behind more and more by day. Pretty […]

Centralization: The great, the terrbile, and the ugly

/ | Leave a Comment

On the web, and especially in more privacy focused circles, there is a lot of talk of centralization, or the opposite. You get a lot of people arguing the internet is fundamentally broken by being centralized and therefore suggest alternatives like the InterPlantery FileSystem (IPFS). While this efforts are great and commendable, what exactly is […]

Google bad, privacy good, Right?

/ | 1 Comment on Google bad, privacy good, Right?

In the android community, and more so in the more privacy focused parts of it, there is often talk of “de-googling” or going full-on FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) only route. These people often refuse to use software written by or supported by bigger companies, and instead prefer to only use software or apps […]

Great Linux distros

Some swear by gentoo because of its configurability. Some swear by arch linux because of its lightweight and KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) […]

Why I use caddy

/ | Leave a Comment

I’ve used pretty much every popular web server out there. Apache 1, Apache 2, nginx, and most recently OpenLiteSpeed, and currently Caddy v2. Why do I choose caddy? Certainly it’s less popular and some would argue less capable than say nginx or apache2. First, and this is a big one: easy configuration. If you choose […]

Why I run ads

It’s really ironic. I use AdGuard, and develop a magisk module that increases privacy and can block ads. Yet, I’m running ads on my site. Allow me to explain. I’ve been seeing unprecedented amounts of traffic on my sites. In fact, almost 7,000 visitors last month alone. That’s no small number of visitors. Donations are […]
