I wanted to make a bike trip, planned it on komoot and, just before the trip, tried to synchronize the route to my Wahoo ELEMNT. It didn’t work, the Wahoo device couldn’t connect to WiFi. WiFi problems with Wahoo are not uncommon so I tried to use Wahoo mobile application to download my route. The […]
I don’t like wasting screen space so the very first configuration action I do in newly installed desktop environments is making all windows maximized by default. After I had reinstalled my computer, I experienced a problem that new Emacs windows (or frames, in Emacs terminology) created after Emacs had started were not fully vertically maximized, […]
I managed to waste my time on another thing. I foolishly thought that I should finally add DKIM to my mail server. Configuring it in the mail server was relatively easy. But once I started to check whether it actually works, I’ve fallen into trouble. I started with the elliptic curve algorithm (ed25519). OpenDKIM on […]
I’ve recently reinstalled my computer and switched to a different Linux distribution there. Because of the change, I got new (or different) versions of many desktop components. And when configuring my keyboard, I can see Czech programming keyboard is available in X again. What a relief!

During the years, I tried several workspace, perspective or screen (whatever they are […]
speechd-el 2.11 release introduces index marking feature, i.e. moving the cursor as the text of a buffer is read. This feature has been planned for more than 10 years but due to various circumstances, its implementation, although not that difficult, has been delayed. Now it is finally implemented although it may need further improvements in […]
Some time ago, I’ve found out that under special circumstances I can hear differences between 320 kbps mp3 and CD audio. Now, I’m curious whether I can hear any difference between CD and high-resolution audio. There is a lot of discussions whether high-resolution audio is a gimmick or a useful thing. Maybe the answer is simple: […]
It seems another very interesting project grows in Brno — Rustical Records recording studio and label. They help creating amazing recordings, listen yourself: King’N’Doom curtain of the moon FLY… TAK LEŤ!
I have found out that I was mistaken, Odyssey Android music player cannot always play the tracks in the right order. Additionally, it has sometimes problems (as many Android music players have) with non-ASCII characters in file tags. So I’m returning back to using Vanilla Music. I abandoned it when it was incapable to play […]
