Sunsetting qFox

2018-06-12

I've decided to deprecate my "qFox" nickname. That wasn't an easy choice, mind you, just one that made the most sense. I've inadvertently created somewhat of a brand of "kuvos" leading to most people only knowing "qfox" from my website (and not under...


Feels like 7 months

2018-06-12

A year ago I got home in my temporary apartment in a city I had only visited a couple of times that was soon to be my permanent residence. Soon in the order of a few months, but still, quite permanent. The event was a small deja vu for me, which is a...


JS10k!

2018-03-27

Wow how time flies. Did you know the next JS1k will be the tenth year (!!) to run this competition. That's [i]amazing[/i]. To celebrate this I figured we should go all in so for the next edition the whole thing will be themed around ten. This mean...


Perfect linux featherlight

2018-02-12

I've been using my Asus Zenbook for about a year and a half now. And while I'm still happy with the choice back then, I'm very disappointed with Asus. I feel they could be more pro-active in getting linux support for this particular touchpad. It's re...

2017-11-25

Facebook

2017-06-11

In case you didn't get the memo; I'm joining Facebook. In fact, I'm starting tomorrow. I just arrived in London and settled into a temporary apartment. I'm super excited for tomorrow and at the same time a little anxious for the big unknown. I have N...


The hardware talk

2017-06-01

I sometimes write about hardware but usually only when I discard it or something. So let's talk about hardware setup and what works for me. I can be pretty particular in my hardware choice, at least in some areas. Let me tell you all about my current...
