Tor browser proxy for specific country.

Reading Time: 4 minutesRecently I had offered a colleague of mine to provide her with all links to blogs I follow so she could read them, too. It was easier said than done.

Lubuntu 13.10 reduce brightness issue

Reading Time: 2 minutesSince the last version of Ubuntu – 13.10 – “saucy salamander”, I’ve been experiencing several issues, apps stopped working, crashes etc. This is kind of normal stuff, with each new release of an open source distribution, there’s a period in which you have to be patient to have the communities release some patches of what got broken.
