Sailfish OS: What is MicroG?

In some cases, Sailfish OS requires the ability to use Android apps. Most of them can be run relatively easily with Alien Dalvic, and they work just fine. However, some check very carefully that Google’s Play Services are installed on the device, and you usually don’t want that as a normal user of SFOS for privacy reasons. MicroG offers a free and independent alternative to the closed and proprietary solutions of Google Services. It is ...

Valentine’s Day: A heart for 3d printing

As a small gift for Valentine’s Day 2023 I printed this pendant and gave it away to colleagues. A small gift from the 3D printer, which I had to first provide with new spare parts, because when printing he just wanted to print only half and then pulled the filament no longer clean. This can happen if the attachment on the extended, adjustable feeder is broken or too much abrasion occurs. Therefore: If it should not work again with the ...

Merry Christmas 2022

I wish all readers a nice and reflective Christmas, lots of happiness, health and just a good time with loved ones. As a small gift this year there is a small Christmas elf on the 3d printer, which I printed in bronze and silver. The little elf is interesting because it is a 3d scan that was then printed. This makes the surface rougher than it typically is and just more interesting to the touch. All the best, Merry Christmas and see ...

WebCam shutter from 3d printer

In order to not always feel like I’m being watched (because the webcams at work unfortunately don’t have their own shutter), I unceremoniously built and printed a new cap for them. The attachment makes it hold well to the very smooth housing, and it’s a better option than the previous attempts with a cap just for the front part. So now I’m a bit more data-protected on the road and have already made these for other colleagues on ...

If my website sucks, you do not need to visit it.
Have a nice day and think about how much you have payed to visit it? Nothing...
How many ads do you see at it? None.

How much money do I earn from it? Nothing.
Does it cost me something to host it? Hell yeah.

I do not see why I should provide it to you to be insulted?
