Every blog has a miscellaneous section that includes everything that cannot be categorized in other sections. Have fun finding some interesting topics that I don't want to give them an extra category! ;)
#VSCode: C++ Development and Debugging using containers
General | 5 min | 21045
Last week, I was working on a C++ application on a remote machine in the cloud, and I didn't want to install all the compiling and debugging tools/libraries/dependencies on the host OS, but I wanted to have all of them in a container. I found that VSCode has the capability to target a container for application building and/or debugging :).
This article is a documentation for me that I will use every time that I need to compile a C++ application. The steps are divided in three main groups:
- You need to build a Docker image with the tools/dependencies/libraries etc.. A container will be started...
#Timeular: Track your time using an Octahedron on Linux
General | 3 min | 2446
Last year, I bought a Timeular tracker and I've been using it the past months to check the time I spent on my activities and plan my days better. Furthermore, on work-from-home days, it's hard to track how many hours I work per day, and the tracker helps me a lot with this! Therefore, I still recommend it.
I also wrote an article about the tracker and the Timeular application: Timeular: Tracking your time using an Octahedron. Both work great on Windows, Mac OS, and Android....

General, MicroPython | 1 min | 3330
This is a misc. small article. Two month ago, I bought on Banggood two articles that I wanted to show you, but this time, these are not connected to an application, code or a detailed product review.

If you are looking for a very small electric screw driver, then the Xiaomi Wowstick is an option for you. It in...
#Timeular: Tracking your time using an Octahedron
General, Product Reviews | 5 min | 7298
Timeular is still on Summer Sale with up to 50% discount! Limited stock left, don’t miss out!
First of all, this article is a product review which was/is not supported by Timeular GmbH or similar. I bought the product two weeks ago, because I wanted to test it. I missed out the Kickstarter campaign (2016) and the regular price for the octahedron was too expensive for me.

This summer, the tracker is on sale with up to 50% discount and I bought the basic plan. I got an octahedron -called tracker- which connects to the Timeular application (Mac, Win...

Just a small post. I've migrated the blog from Pagekit CMS to OctoberCMS. Pagekit was a nice CMS, but unfortunately the project is almost dead, so I've decided to migrate to OctoberCMS.
Why I didn't choose Wordpress? Well, I hate Wordpress. I've tried a lot, but everytime I found that it was not for me.
So, I have a ToDo for you: If you find something that it is not working, please use the contact formular or the comment section below to inform me! I've checked everything, but I've migrated almost 100 pages (articles, static pages etc.) and all the meta information and probably I forgot some...

#General: My Nexus 5X has bootlooped! Temporary fix
General | 3 min | 2505
I have a Nexus 5X or I had a working Nexus 5X, and last week it turned black and has finally bootlooped! I bought it from Google Store, so I decided to contact Google. I knew that the warranty was expired on Dec. 2017 (Google repeated it), but this is a common problem of the Nexus 5X, so I thought that maybe I have a chance! But NO! The support was nice, but the solution was to contact LG. A death path! Meaning: No goodwill from Google! Nothing! I contacted LG, and the solution was to send the phone to this address:
DUX Logistics & Tech Services GmbH, Neben dem Mühlweg 20, 65474 Bischofsheim ...

#Ubuntu 16.04 LTS: Broken SD Card Reader Support
General | 1 min | 3079
I am writing this post as a tutorial or a 'keep' note for myself, but I think it could be interesting for a lot of people. At work I'm using a Latitude Dell Laptop with dual boot (Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Windows 10). The laptop has a SD card reader. Usually I work under Ubuntu while I am programming, and the SD card reader support is broken! But typing the following on a terminal, makes it works again:
sudo rmmod sdhci_pci sdhci_acpi sdhci sudo modprobe sdhci debug_quirks2="0x10000" sudo modprobe sdhci_pci sdhci_acpi sdhci
It seems to be a problem since Linux kernel version 4.1.8. A bug report he...
