Vivaldi on Windows Part 2 (plus a teeny bit about Vivaldi on Linux)

I’ve been using Vivaldi as my default browser for about a week now. As I said in the penultimate paragraph of the post where I mentioned exploring various browsers, I don’t really use my browser on Windows for much more than uploading YouTube videos. And I mentioned last time that it wasn’t the best setup […]

Upgrading main computer (Supermario) to Fedora 32

Specifically, I had to use the commands: gsettings set stop-static [”] gsettings set play-static [”] gsettings set […]

Followup to Podman and PHPIpam

Adding the –name mysql – it wasn’t enough to get the PHPIpam apache container to find the mysql container. They’re in the same pod, but something’s not quite right. So I decided to see if I could modify the config.php by mounting the container and modifying that. # podman mount beautiful_gauss /var/lib/containers/storage/overlay/5a33decc2cfad7e9bda5f9048d94a814267d954e97d5dd7befb057a84367f27a/merged While this allowed […]

Every once in a while the puerile makes me laugh
