Firefox Focus

I have been using Firefox Focus for about half a year now. I came to use because I was using Chrome and simply got paranoid of what stuff Google was collecting via Chrome. So I made the switch to Firefox on my PC and started using Firefox for Android. Now before I started using Firefox Focus I was using Brave Browser for Android. Brave Browser is a Chromium based browser that tauts privacy for the end user. Read more...

My thoughts on “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coelho

The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho Since I have been reading “self-help” books my wife suggested I check out The Alchemist.

Why I got a Library Card in 2019

I was having a conversation with my wife and I said to her “You know, I feel like I’m getting dumber”. We both laughed out loud at my ridiculous statement, she then asked why I felt that.

Relaunching my personal website

Leaving social media So this week I found myself falling down a crazy rabbit hole. It all happened when I watched this video on the indieweb concept. I was hooked on the idea and philosophy of the indeweb! Just recently I had been putting a lot of thought on leaving social media behind. But of course in this day and age doing that is much easier said than done. Still I had this gut feeling telling me that I just didn’t want to be on platforms like facebook any more. Read more...
