Bephone Be Elite 2 ROM download (Link fixed).

It's been a while since anyone mentioned the Be Elite.  A solid phone with no potential at all!!

Benefits of clean installs

Over time your system gets overloaded with problems and dead shortcuts, the installations and removal of software, some hidden malware you aren't ware of. Even with cleaning solutions like Iobit advanced cleaner and Ccleaner. You still have some things you can't clean. You will notice over time a slower boot and a general drop in performance. That's time to consider a clean install.

We have looked into several chat apps in this blog such as Whatsapp and Viber. Telegram focuses more on privacy and security more than these apps. 
Telegram's popularity exploded when Facebook announced it's acquisition of Whatsapp in early 2014 raising security concerns among users, peaking 50 million downloads that day alone. Telegram is free and open source and has no advertisement what so ever!
 Let's take a look at the reasons to abandon whatever you become addicted to and switch to Telegram.

How to change the user picture in Xubuntu?

Well if you arrived here that means that you (like me) spent hours roaming through menus and options with no use!
Your journey has ended! Here I give you the easiest way to change the user picture.

Open source design


Anyone how decides to pursue a career in graphic design is faced with an obstacle! Many courses don't teach graphic design! They teach adobe products!
They don't teach you how to design a logo, they teach you Indesign. Or how to edit a picture, they teach you PhotoShop!
Over time you are used to the adobe eco system and so consumed into it you can't stand seeing anything else, or worse! Anything not done the "adobe way"!
The tools need to be sorted like this, the monitor must flicker in that pattern. And the worst in my opinion are mac designers as they don't accept change at all!
I'm not running from door to door trying to convert people to open source! I just want to do my daily job (Using open source please!) The problem is that the designers don't accept to tolerate anything done differently! And open source is different!
It's not like PhotoShop! No one said that! Gimp is a separate package that does the same things differently and possibly better!

Inkscape is not like Indesign and it shouldn't be. It's a different software doing the same task.

Why do they care if the output is the right size and format? Ready for printing without a glitch?
What gets on my nerves is that most of these judgmental people O have to deal with use cracked software! I don't think they saw an Adobe Photoshop label before or ever saw across the registry process being done!
Imagine someone working for 10-15 years with a cracked software without guilt or remorse, then without a spec of shame looks down on open source software!
Respect FOSS please!!

Remove the Get Windows 10 once and for all

Remove GWX
What is GWX? Get Windows 10 is the advert Microsoft slipped into the Windows updatemasked as a “recommended update” KB3035583, after you install it you have to restart the computer. After that it will stay until you upgrade to Windows 10. I was flattered at first, especially after my upgrade was reserved “on it's own”, but after upgrading and going back I started to think of it as more of a Spyware than a flattery.

Think of it! It was installed on it's own, there is no way of closing it, it starts with the computer. Totally sounds like a Spyware to me!

Now that we know what is it and where it came from. Let's take a look at removing it all together. And removing it means you don't get to upgrade to Windows 10 from the store (good riddance!) Ehm!

Get Windows 10?! Not again Microsoft!

As I was updating my newly installed Windows 8.1 Pro. I came across a familiar icon! It was the Get Windows 10 icon sitting on my taskbar! I wouldn't have thought that I'm aligable for another download after I downloaded Windows 10, upgraded to it, clean installed it , and finally remove it and get back to Windows 8.1 !!

Get Windows 10, again!
You can see the date and time to know it's today!


Well that was a rich reading material wasn't it?!
I took my time experimenting with Windows 10 on my personal computer, installing and uninstalling again and again, I didn't even use a virtual machine. NOOOO! I used my everyday computer to do these experiments!
For obvious reasons I'm not falling for that upgrade offer once again! And I have some other reasons to add to that list. So checkout that post!
I think I've had enough install/uninstall action for the rest of my life! Let alone the countless updates, the time wasted and the data charges I'm paying for all of this mess.
I'm finishing my updates and that's that. No more upgrades on this device for me. And I don't recommend anyone to upgrade to Windows 10!
