Not very nice workaround for a problem on Kubuntu 18.04 laptop when system doesn’t notice that external HDMI display has been disconnected if the speed which user plugs out HDMI cable is less than five speeds of light.
I will describe my unfinished (I would say just started and died in infancy) attempt to create an Android app that would compete (ha-ha) with such app as TEMS. It had to acquire physical network parameters and call flow data.
This short article is about custom rules for uBlock Origin that (yet) could be used to remove commercials from web pages even if the page uses random generated element ids and css classes. Basic knowledge of html/css required.
I’m again and again trying to move to Linux. In this post I want to share my sad thoughts about GUI tools for archive management in contemporary desktop Linux system.
For about 2 years I used SSD as a system drive for my home server. It was mounted with noatime attribute and I knew there would be no services which can cause heavy write load on it. But recently I started a project which requires a small amount of data to be written in database each second or two. I guessed that such kind of load would increase ssd’s wear but I was unprepared to face how huge the wear is…
For several years I used Vstarcam software (IP Camera Super Client) on Windows to record video stream from my cameras.

It happened after I had tried to install Windows 10 and those installation continued the whole night. Moreover, there was no any progressbar or something during the installation of OS and especially during the installation […]
I describe a solution, which I use to make an http live stream (video player embedded into web page) from two Vstarcam surveillance cameras (C7823WIP and C7824WIP).

I had been cursing this subsystem for two years and then found a workaround in 24 hours.
A few days ago I pulled my Acer C720 out of the nightstand and noticed that it has a strange shape…
It’s keyboard was bulged toward the screen so the laptop can’t be closed completely.
Battery was swollen.
After I have removed the battery everything seems to work well except the wifi. Wifi couldn’t connect to anywhere and somehow I understood that the problem is incorrect date in RTC. RTC really had some fake date in the far future. It seems that there is no separate CMOS battery in this laptop. And I was needed to find the way to fix it.
