Goodbye Ubooquity

As you know, we use ubooquity for reading comics and books, and are very happy with the way it works. But sometimes you get an irritating itch to change things. Ubooquity is simple, works as promised and served us for some time now, bet we were looking for a change of scenery, so we decided…

Using Bitwarden as a Password Tool

Happily using 1Password for a long time, we started to get annoyed by the business model, where you either have to pay for every new major release, or start paying a monthly fee. By chance I ran into a link of someone who described his top 10 dockers (, and the first one was Bitwarden.…
