Website censorship increases in Denmark

It seems that in Denmark the censorship of websites has been increasing over the past few years. The list of blocked websites in for the year 2016 Denmark is long and is longer then comparable list from the year 2015. Most of the websites that are blocked are pirate websites along with questionable gambling websites. Most of the websites also seems to have been blocked without getting a proper way trough the court system and have only been blocked at the request of the rights holders (copyright holders). Since this process lacks court oversight and proper procedure. It is not acceptable in my view that copyrights holder gets to block websites just because they say so, that allows for an abuse and that is unacceptable. The block message in Denmark should also show the correct law if those can be found to start with.

This type of censorship of the internet is dangerous and not acceptable in my view. But weak government allows this without any oversight or questions. It is also a question of this blocking is allowed at all under Danish law (the constitution of Denmark) that prohibits censorship of all type in Denmark.

You can’t drill a hole in iPhone 7 for Mini-jack

Currently on YouTube there is a video calming that you can drill an hole in it for a mini-jack audio plug-in. This video is completely fake and false. The reason why this doesn’t work is quite simple. Drilling a hole into your mobile phone (expensive mobile phone) is never going to work. All that is going to do is to destroy the phone, as it damages the motherboard and the screen in the process. This type of activity is not covered by any type of warranty. You also need a digital to analogue audio chip on the motherboard for the audio jack, all this needs to be properly soldered on the motherboard. iPhone 7 doesn’t have this digital to analogue chip and is also missing the plug-in part for the mini-jack, that doesn’t magically appear when a hole is drilled into the iPhone 7 frame.

Here is the Youtube video making fool out of people and damaging there iPhone 7 (they are expensive, because Apple).

If you are thinking about doing this. Don’t, it’s stupid and it doesn’t work and is going to void the warranty on your iPhone 7.

Welcome to technical thinking

This is my new website, I’ve owned this domain for several years now having it doing nothing. This website is going to be around my technical life, solutions and debugging stuff.

I spend a lot a time on the computer and I’ve done so for many years. While I’m not employed in the IT industry due to lack of education in the field I know a lot, since I’ve learned a lot over the years and I’m not going to stop learning about computers or IT.

While the subjects covered are going to be different I plan on trying to update this website with new articles when I can and I’m able to. What size and shape those articles are going to be unknown at the moment. I have found that technical websites on the internet today are more of the click bate nature, rather then providing actual solutions to the problems. This website is not about providing solutions to problems that my readers get into. What I’ve been thinking is that I’m going to provide solutions to problems that I get into so it can help someone later that gets into the same issue later and might find that article with an internet search.

At least I’m going to see where and how this develops over the coming years. I currently have knowledge of Linux (most distros), FreeBSD and Windows XP/10. I never used Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 extensively to learn them.

I’m also not going to be on Facebook with this website, since Facebook has started to limit my reach on that platform. Unless I pay and I don’t want to pay Facebook anything. Since they suck at service and always have.
