Being part of a community of enlightened fellows running GNU/Linux as their main desktop operating system is a huge responsibility: Would you not agree? Such a knowledgeable person should always follow a strict set of principles: ban Microsoft from her life, spit on Apple in her idle time, install Arch without a GUI, and absolutely discourage others from using any kind of social networks. Thus is the life of a committed free-software advocate… Is it really, though ?If you read until the end, I promise you a nice twist of events… Continue reading My Sins As A Linux Advocate & Other News…
Some of you may be wondering what is currently happening behind the scenes. If you belong with such people, then this article is for you and you should keep reading. I have recently been told that I was much less active on my blog and YouTube channel than before. Appearances are against me, indeed. In 2 months and a half, I published few videos and articles. Hopefully, everything will become much clearer in the lines to come… Continue reading What Am I Up To?
Before presenting the web browsers which I consider are currently the best, I would like to express a concern of mine. I am worried about my privacy and my freedom. I am worried about the state of the internet, which is in a state of absolute ‘bloatness’. I am worried about the centralization of the world wide web, which is more and more limited to a few online platforms such as YouTube, Facebook, and other. Continue reading Browsing The Web In 2020: Is It Madness ?
This is no joke. Nowadays, normies spend most of their time on one single program : their web browser. What if one could strive to change this digital behavior, however? What if today was the day I managed to convince you to uninstall your display manager? If you are not running GNU/Linux or a Unix-like operating-system yet, I once heard that it is never too late… Continue reading Optimizing Your Computer’s Performance
I have not played around in VirtualBox in a few weeks, except to have a quick first look at MageiaOS (which will be the subject of a later post and video). Since I am in great need of one to demonstrate things in future YouTube videos, I figured I would install Arch Linux for the second time on camera. Continue reading Yet Another Arch Linux Installation Guide
My Dearest Mad-Readers, I hope you all are doing well, in these dark times, but especially that you are capable of seeing the silver lining of the tiresome cloud which already has been obscuring our vision for far too long. Yes, a lot of us are stuck at home. However, this does not mean that one should remain idle and wait for the rain to … Continue reading Take Advantage Of Technology To Learn Foreign Languages
This will be another short post, since I have an announcement to make. Do not worry, I still love blogging just as much as at the beginning. However, I want to protect myself from growing tired of it. Metaphorically, I do not want to burn my wings too quickly, since my journey is supposed to have barely started. Continue reading My Latest Videos & Thoughts As A Blogger
It is well known that mastering a foreign language is key to thoroughly understanding its culture and, if you intend to stay abroad for a long time, you definitely want to consider learning the local language. If you still need to be convinced that learning a foreign language is in your best interest, I recommend you read up this article. If you have not decided which language is right for you, then this article may help you out. Continue reading How To Learn A Foreign Language
I have been in Italy for an entire month. This is the third long trip I take, the first one being my CELTA and the second also was in England (near Oxford, as it happens). I believe it is now time to share with you my travel experience but also that I describe to you my language journey in a little bit more details. Let us not forget that I am a linguist indeed… Continue reading My Experience As An Au-Pair In Italy
This post is a little special, since I am writing it to describe my situation and my current state of mind. I would also like to share my latest video with you, which I am quite happy with. It is not yet perfect, I am well aware of it, but I have made significant progress which I am really proud of. For those of you who usually do not read my tech-related articles, do scroll down because everything here will not be about tech. I will tell you bits and pieces of my trip to Italy too!
