1. Wireguard: Home VPN Server

    I used to use OpenVPN as a means to connect to my internal network from outside of my house. It worked really well, but managing its configs was a little bit of a hassle and, frankly, OpenVPN is old news (/s). I wanted to play with a new toy.

    So I looked into Wireguard.

  2. Centralized Bookmarks with Linkding

    As I mentioned in my Qutebrowser article, my browser doesn't have the ability to share bookmarks with my other browsers. I run Chrome on my phone and Chrome on my Chromebook. And I have a second Linux laptop that also runs Qutebrowser.

  3. Qutebrowser

    These days, it's more important than ever to find a good web browser: one that's easy to use, has the functionality you want, and, most importantly, is reasonably secure. It's also a good idea to consider the privacy features the browser has too.

  5. Qtile Window Manager

    Arch Linux For most people, their window manager is something they probably don't think much about. Consider all of the Windows and Mac users out there. They may or may not think about the fact that they appreciate how using Windows is different from using a Mac, but they may not be able to explain exactly why (Though over the past few years, it feels like Mac and Windows interfaces are slowing becoming very similar).

    But on Linux, there is a lot of choice of window managers: from KDE & Gnome (similar to the traditional Windows/Mac interfaces) to tiling window managers like DWM, Xmonad, and Qtile.
