Linux T-Shirt Concept Design - Linux is Everywhere

I decided that I wanted a Linux related T-Shirt but I couldn't find one that I liked very much...Canonical makes decent shirts for Ubuntu but I want a "Linux in general" shirt not an Ubuntu shirt. I've searched and search, there are plenty of shirts out there but they are typically very poor quality or based solely around the logos of a distribution. Logo shirts are great for distros like Arch, Linux Mint, etc but again I want a "Linux in General" shirt.

Zombieland Rule #42 - "Make a Terrible TV Show"

The Zombieland Pilot from Amazon is just "WOW" but in the worst possible way because it's just completely AWFUL! They took an awesome movie and then butchered EVERYTHING that made it good. Here are many but not all of the reasons for how bad this show is...

Feedly Mosaic Userstyle, Reclaim Your RSS Grid

The outstanding RSS Reader app called Feedly released a new version of the app with v14. Version 14 comes with a lot of new features, bug fixes, speed improvements and much more but unfortunately they decided to kill the "Mosaic" view (Grid) from v14. Feedly decided to replace the "Mosaic" view (my preferred view) with a new "Cards" view which essentially was an attempt to do the vertical column layout style made famous by Pinterest. In my opinion, and many others, this was a mistake. I decided to create a userstyle with the browser addon, Stylish. Before we get to the userstyle that I created and the reasons of why I created it...you should first know what a Userstyle is and what Stylish is.

Feedlet: Feedly Add Feed (subscription) Bookmarklet

Feedly is Awesome! For those who don't know, Feedly is a cross-platform and cross-browser RSS Reader app. I have used Feedly off and on for years now but due to the closure of Google Reader, Feedly has become a vastly more dominant force in the RSS realm. Feedly has a LOT of great features and tools but there was one thing I wanted to be a little bit easier, the process for adding new feeds (subscriptions) to the application.

How To Disable/Hide Spotify's Tray Menu and Use the Sound Menu or HUD

Some people have expressed wanting to use my Spotify Ambiance theme but to also disable the Tray Menu entirely in order to just use the Sound Menu since having both is rather redundant. I agree with sentiment and this blog post is a tutorial on how to do just that. This tutorial also contains downloads to use the Disable the Tray Menu with the Ambiance theme and with the default Spotify theme.

Two Google Translate Bookmarkets

Recently I have been working on a Linux project called "uGet" which is a download manager app for Linux (Ubuntu, Fedora, Mint, OpenSUSE, etc) and I have been trying to do some social networking for it through Twitter. Turns out a lot of people who use download managers and Linux and Twitter speak languages other than English. "Go Figure" I know, right! Interestingly enough, the most popular language among these users is Indonesian. It doesn't need to be said but I will...I don't know Indonesian AT ALL, so when I want to tell them about uGet I need to use a translator and the best free option right now is Google Translate.

Ubuntu Ambiance Theme for Spotify plus Radiance Icon

Spotify looks nice in general but Linux is all about customization but Spotify clashes a lot with the default theme of Ubuntu (Ambiance) so I decided to customize it to the Ambiance theme. In this blog post you can find the Download file of this open source theme and the instructions on how to install it. The installation takes very little time and is VERY easy to do BUT it does require making changes as Root. (required because of Spotify's structure of the app)

Spotify's Linux Preview Tray Icon is Ugly and Can't be Changed

Spotify is a great service and their recent updates to their Linux version has fixed all the problems I was having with the program, except for one. Spotify's tray icon on Linux is UGLY and breaks the feel of the desktop ignoring the monochrome style. To make this worse, Spotify decided to make this icon impossible to change yourself. I created an icon that fits well with the desktop style but when I tried to apply it, I found out that Spotify likes their icon so much they refuse to let you change it.

Why HTC & Verizon equals Smartphone Hell - by a Frustrated Thunderbolt Owner

I am a long time user of both HTC and Verizon but I've decided that as long as either company continue the path they are currently on, I will never purchase a single device or service plan from them again. This blog post is basically just me ranting about both companies and why I think no one should use either and of course alternatives to both.
