Uninstalling Android bloatware


Sick of the bloatware on your Android device?
You can uninstall it with ADB, you don’t have to root your device, at maketecheasier you can find detailed instructions. So I won’t write them again, I could not do it better then them.

But I have 2 usefull (I hope) tips for you :
To find the package name of the app you want to uninstall use Package name, that’s easier then using a terminal.

Use APK export if you want to backup the APK file of the app you want to uninstall

Happy 29th B-day Linux

Getting to where it is today was no small feat for the little project that Linus Torvalds announced to the world on August 25, 1991, with this newsgroup post:

Hello everybody out there using minix –

I’m doing a (free) operating system (just a hobby, won’t be big and professional like gnu) for 386(486) AT clones. This has been brewing since april, and is starting to get ready. I’d like any feedback on things people like/dislike in minix, as my OS resembles it somewhat (same physical layout of the file-system (due to practical reasons) among other things).

I’ve currently ported bash(1.08) and gcc(1.40), and things seem to work. This implies that I’ll get something practical within a few months, and I’d like to know what features most people would want. Any suggestions are welcome, but I won’t promise I’ll implement them 馃檪

“just a hobby, won’t be big and professional like gnu” how wrong could he be 馃槈

Simplewire XMPP server quits

I’ll keep my account until the end although I have allready a replacement.

When unexpected life events suddenly occur this is often associated with self-reflection and the redefinition of priorities.

This has now happened to me and I have to inform you that the public service of the simplewire.de server did not appear on the changed priority list.

Reluctantly the operation will be discontinued on 31 March 2020. This means that all accounts will be deleted on that day.

I request all supporters to cancel their existing standing orders immediately.

I would like to thank you sincerely for the trust that has been placed in the simplewire.de project. An extra thanks goes to all supporters!

Finally I would like to underline once again that this decision was not easy for me. I am aware that there will be disappointed users. However, I assure that this decision was made under purely objective aspects.

Pr贸spero 2020

Around and around, all has nearly turned full circle
The warm lazy days of sunshine and brown rivers winding through the meadows are a tale of yesterday

The pilgrim sighs and draws his mantle close about him in the smoky evening

He watches the leaves wither and fall
Frost has rimmed the pools with ice and hung diamonds in the spider’s web

For this is the turning of the year, the final scene before the curtain falls
And now beside the road there stands the pilgrim of the year to be

Pr贸spero 2020

Prosperous 2020

Broken links

In the past I uploaded some photos to google. Those photos are gone now on the blog. I still have have them on my hard drives. So if you see a post or a page with missing pictures, dead links, just let me know and I’ll fix it on a short term. To be honest, I’m not going to check all the posts / pages to search for missing pictures / dead links.

New theme and new sites

This week I changed my blog theme to a new one. It’s not totally new, I used it before.

Besides changes on the blog I changed my photo and video upload sites.

Flickr has changed it’s policy that you can only have 1000 pictures instead of 1 TB for free. So new uploads go to PixelFed, where I have 1 TB for free.

Vimeo was a rather good site with 2 downsides :
Max 5 GB for free
Max 500 MB upload a week
My new video’s go to OpenTube. Unlimited storage and no weekly upload limit.
