My Windows 10 computer with a brand new Samsung 860 EVO 500GB SSD freezes for 10 - 15 seconds at a time, randomly. Well, it used to. It turned out to be a driver issue. After doing some research it seems that it is AMDs fault not Samsung. We just need to swap a driver out.
Working directly with X, Xlib, XUtils, and so on, is actually a lot more pleasant than I was lead to believe. However there are a couple of annoying bits. One of which, is handling events generated by XServer, and the WindowManager (WM) differently. Since the Chrome, or elements around your application, are supplied by the WM, you will need to listen to a message from it, and not a standard EventType from XServer.
Teamspeak is an amazing piece of free software. While not Open Source, it does at least give you control over your data. In comparison to Skype and Discord, Teamspeak's performance is all up to you. You get to run the server, not relying on a third party to give you the bandwidth you need to have good quality audio.
Enabling Cloudflare on my website ourbusandus.com cause an odd issue, which I didn't expect. While it seemed to work correctly on this website, tazdij.com on Our Bus & Us it was causing a redirect loop. I thought it was a configuration issue, so I rewrote my nginx server configurations 3 or 4 times. Turns out it had to do with having SSL enabled and a server redirect. Let's take a quick look into the problem and solution.
Have you ever wanted to work with files on your remote server using your favorite text editor (which doesn't support SFTP)? I know this was a struggle for me, until I switched my laptop to Linux. Now I can just mount the folders from my server to my local filesystem, and use GEdit (gnuedit). Basically Linux (and other *nix OS) is Awesome! Being able to take small applications and make them work together is a huge benefit.
