In the last few months, I’ve spent some time in finding an effective and time efficient method for learning languages. After some research I’ve found a method called “Fluent Forever” formalised by Gabriel Wyner. This method is based on the spaced repetition software Anki.
As is written in the project page of Activity Manager, “I’m currently rewriting it from scratch in QML to improve it and to add some missing features, like the ability to add a new activity from template”. Actually, after trying different way to interact with the KDE activities I’m stuck.
I’ve recently moved from Chakra Linux to Manjaro Linux. Here I’m not going to explain why Manjaro and all the Arch-based distro are so fantastic, but I only want to point out why for me Manjaro it’s a better choice than Chakra.
In this release the code has been cleaned and commented with doxygen style comments, the files hierarchy has been changed to make everything more clear, the README has been updated and ported to markdown syntax. Because of all this changes the code is now supposed to be easily maintainable.
In this post I’m going to show you how to build a TV VESA mount 200×200 for the Minix Neo X7 for few euros. The mount is used to hang the Neo X7 and possibly a 2.5” hard drive behind the TV in order to hide them. Notice that this solution won’t allow to use the Neo X7 remote anymore, because there won’t be the line of sight between the IR receiver and the remote. In any case the RKRemoteControl App or any Airmouse will still work.
I recently bought a Samsung Smart TV but as I expected it is not smart at all, but I consider it pretty dumb. Actually is not the TV that is stupid, but the the real stupids are the Samsung developers and managers.. but this is another point I may analyze in depth in another post. So to add some grey matter to my TV I decided to buy a mini PC.
As we all know, Okular is a great piece of software. One of the feature I most like in Okular is the review tools, a system that allows to make any kind of annotation in the document. When I’ve begun using it, I noticed that after selecting a tool and using it once I needed to reselect it for every next annotation I wanted to make. Of course, I’ve found this very frustrating.
In this new version of redshift plasmoid I’ve added a simple OSD that displays the current color temperature when in manual mode. The displayed information can be used to set a correct day and night color temperature in the settings page. Moreover, thanks to the contribution of some users, redshift plasmoid is being translated in different languages.
Finally I found some time to update redshift plasmoid.
The major change in the new version is the possibility to set the temperature color manually , a.k.a manual mode. To do so you just need to scroll the mouse wheel over the widget and immediately it switch to manual mode, starting to set the color temperature you desire.
Finally, after a lot of hard work simgunz’s Blog is up and running.
I’ve made this blog mainly to provide a homepage for my projects, so that I can share news about them and receive feedback and ideas from the users (I hope).
