systemd haters resource page

Posted 09-20-2017 at 11:05 PM by ttk (Unpopular Positions: One Geek's Take)

It's very ugly and primitive at the moment. I might turn it into a "real" web page later, or might not.

The "sed" command doesn't need quotes

Posted 09-15-2017 at 02:20 PM by the dsc (linux-related notes)

SONY XPERIA X Compact - data transfer

Posted 09-15-2017 at 08:29 AM by error_401 (LINUX mostly DEBIAN - hardware and software)
