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 on a variety of topics that interested me in the moment.

I always try to “Write the article you wish you found when you searched the web for something.” As a technically minded technologist, this means I usually have to put a lot of research in before I can write anything. 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 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! A big thanks to everyone who found what I write interesting enough to spend a few minutes reading!

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

Please use the contact form to get in touch with me. Please note that there is a link underneath each article for contacting me regarding a specific article.

Note that I take no responsibility for the advise given on this website being accurate, up-to-date, the right advise for you, or that it will work at all. I try to give due warnings before giving any advise that are likely to negatively affect you or your computer.

This blog has previously been published under the names “Slight Future” and “Aeyoun”.
