Windows 10 allows windows to be snapped not only to the sides but to the corners as well. I use this configuration for many years on Ubuntu Unity and I thought I’d share a fast way to set it up. Simply open a terminal and copy/paste the following commands: And this command restores the initial […]

It seems that Windows 10 uses a different registry key than Windows 7 to disable Aero Shake so here are the registry entries: DisableAeroShake.reg

Welcome to my first webcomic with the title “I draw”. This comic is about myself aquiring drawing skills and I think that it feels actually like some kind of hybrid between a picture diary and a drawing / Krita tutorial. New images are added with each new attempt to get to the chapter’s goal of […]

I thought it might be quite interesting to make a list of some unfinished and other works that I created over the years but never got a title. If you know my “Frets on Fire”, you will probably immediately recognize the track I took the melody from and some of the other tracks would definitely […]

I wrote a small script to make the usage of Krita source builds more comfortable for me on Ubuntu. It might be interesting for others as well, so I decided to share it. Along with the script comes a menu entry for it with file associations for all file types that Krita supports (kra, ora, […]

They use xcf2png, unzip and imagemagick behind the scenes and are used by most GTK based file managers (Nautilus, Nemo, PCManFM etc.) You can use the following line […]

The database can be downloaded and freely used unless you incorporate it into a commercial product. WWWJDIC is the dinosaur when it comes to online dictionaries. It’s quite extensive and offers a […]

I recently needed a JSON implementation to serve as a transport layer for RPC for a project I am working on at the moment and doesn’t work with the Mono-version that comes bundled with Unity and would be absolute overkill for my purposes. So I wrote my own small JSON “library”. Well, calling it […]

GEncfsM 1.8.9 is quite an amazing update when comparing to 1.8.8 and has some really nice additions and lots of bug-fixes. It is now possible to save the password in the keyring when creating stashes and it allows persistent mount directories. Also does it now show a notification when un-mounting fails (if notify-send is installed), […]
