Hi, welcome to Ctrl blog (“Control blog”) – The quite technical blog of Daniel Aleksandersen, a specialist in obscure details based in Oslo, Norway.

Ctrl blog is where I share essays, tutorials, reviews, and technical notes and articles about whatever information technology interested me in the moment. I write on a variety of subjects including Linux, security, and web publishing as my time permits.

Many of the articles are the result of my almost obsessive note-taking habit, while others I write some because I believe they’ll be useful to others. I write quite regularly because I enjoy writing!

I regularly write technical papers on operating systems and software tutorials, about digital privacy and security, on web publishing and monetization, and on general nice interests technology topics.

I publish a list of frequently cited sources in the interest of transparency and disclosing any influences and agendas. Ctrl blog has grown so popular it’s regularly plagiarized in several languages!

If you enjoy my writing, be sure you subscribe to future updates.
