This is a very and long overdue post.
I bought this lovely skylake based machine last November as a replacement of the old laptop I was given. the last one was alright fo some very light tasks, like reading emails and pay some bills. But if I wanted to, say, have some YouTube content or read some news on NY Times or CNN, the computer just went slow as a snail.
So I decided to get my hands a new machine that allowed me some portability and horsepower, that allowed me to do daily tasks, photo editing (yes it’s about damn time I’m back at it again) and also future proofing. Continue reading “New machine – Blissful tech”

Today let’s make that IP Static and change the dns address.
A for the static ip, i can be useful for example, if you have a lot of devices at home or office, and want to keep track of every single one of them. The dns aspect side of the thing, allows one for instance to access blocked websites if your ISP or goverment blocked them.
So let’s do this the easy way, meaning through the GUI side of things.
01. Open the terminal and type

Yes, back at the scene after a period of absence due to personal issues. And, guess what: back at Fedora linux too. To my core, I do think this is the distro to stick with. I really feel at home.
I was keen to try the fedora 25 beta, but decided to stick with the current stable release of Fedora.
In the previous post I acclaimed the powers and versatility of Fedy. But old habits die hard and I decided to keeo on doing stuff via the command line interface.
So let us begin . shall we? Continue reading “Fedora 24 – Simple post-install guide”
The last time I’ve installed Fedora almost a year ago, I decided like always, to make a post-install tutorial trying to show how to make Fedor more compete and robust.
I did everything throug the command line interface, since it’s my preferred method of working on linux.
But, I enjoy the KISS philosophy like most if not all of you guys and galls.
So the more I got into the awesome word of Fedora I got to know lovely and most awesome must-have tool. Enter FEDY!
It allows one to tweak, customize and install loads of things on one’s system.
From codecs, to browsers, from themes to pimping up the terminal, this is a very powerful app. After getting to know this tool, I cannot not recommend using this tool.
So hit the following commands on your terminal and tame your fedora.
bash -c 'su -c "curl http://folkswithhats.org/fedy-installer -o fedy-installer && chmod +x fedy-installer && ./fedy-installer"'
Hail Fedy. Long live Fedy!
BUT!… If you’re like me, you’ll probably keep on rocking the command line 😉
