    A Vortex Race 3 which I adore, as it’s the perfect mix of laptop layout and comfortable key travel.

      I can confrim. I really like the ability to remap keys directly without any applicatino or change in the operating system (e.g. remap Ctrl and Caps Lock).

      Puh, I try to keep it simple. Just Excel for my tasks and things I want to adress to other during regular meetings. A calendar named Reminder for time critical things. Flat text files in <10 folders with simple markdown as my note storage. Ah, and a regular notebook for in person meeting with others.

            It’s 1080p, but enough for me.

          1. 1

            I used also a DNS Blacklist but point the DNS to a local IP address and the host just reject the TCP connection with TCP-RST. I think this is faster than redirecting to a webserver which sends back e.g. a white image 1x1 pixel, because for the TCP-RST just two packets and for the webserver at least three (or more if TLS is in use). But is this true? Is the client faster because it cache the image and don’t even make a request at all? And if this approach with NXDOMAIN even faster, because it cache the response from DNS locally?

              Yes, using NXDOMAIN is a lot faster then 0.0.0.0 or 127.0.0.1 in the /etc/hosts file.

              Some pages that I opened before (with 0.0.0.0 in /etc/hosts) loaded 10+ seconds. Now after change to NXDOMAIN with unbound(8) its 2-3 seconds and its loaded.

              It really makes a difference for some pages.
