My thoughts on kateschema to theme converter

21 Sep, 2020 - 3 minutes
Or how I spent a weekend. With the latest changes in ksyntaxhighlighting library the old themes (they are called “kateschema”) will become obsolete and one will have to either use some new theme and hope it will fit or try to adapt the old one and spent hours doing so. The old format is a bit complicated, the settings for one language can vary depending on the current file type. In other words you could have different settings if you opened CSS file directly or when styles were used in HTML.

Falkon - white flashes are back

13 Sep, 2020 - 1 minutes
There are times when one is happy with changes while the others curse at him. In similar situation is this nice change for me which makes Falkon much more usable in dark theme/mode.

So, for now the changes were reverted and we should search for another way (probably much more complex?

Reducing white flashes in Falkon

12 Sep, 2020 - 2 minutes
When opening new tab in Falkon the white flash will be shown before actual website is displayed. This behaviour can be observed if one is using dark theme or opening link in new tab and expect website to be dark. Or by using Chromium flags to turn everything into dark mode. For a long time I disregarded this issue and lived on while always looking away. Yes, it never bothered me to the point I would like to get rid of it.

My experience with taskwarrior

12 Aug, 2020 - 2 minutes
Introduction After a month at new work I realized I need a good way to manage my tasks and things todo lists. Managing things manually is not exactly what I wanted to do and even through the main operating system at work is M$ Windows I decided to try my luck and compile taskwarrior within Cygwin which is luckily present. After going through a bit of problems due to my lack of knowledge of how to do things under M$ Windows and to top it of I also added timewarrior.

My experience cloning Windows 10

10 Aug, 2020 - 2 minutes
Introduction I bought an SSD to replace classic slow HDD on home M$ Windows 10 machine. This SSD is a smaller than the original HDD (250 GB vs 500 GB) so I could not clone whole disk which I hope would be easier (anyway I will probably never know). Initial research Before I started I decided to check internet (DuckDuckGo) and asked how to migrate M$ Windows 10 from HDD to SSD.
