Hello, I'm Abhijith. A Free Software enthusiast.


  1. A lazy local file sharing setup

    At home, I have both a laptop and a *desktop PC. Most of my essential things, such as emails, repositories, password managers, contacts, and calendars are synced between the two devices. However, when I need to share some documents and I am lazy enough to go pick a flash drive, my only option is to push them to the Internet and download them on the other system, which is sitting at 20~ meters away. Typically, I do this either through email attachments or a matrix client. …


  2. abhijithpa.me to abhijithpa.in

    I let go my domain abhijithpa.me. It was getting expensive and I don’t fancy that anymore. I never actually purchased this domain but came with a package offer. I then kept it for couple of years. …


  3. A new(kind of) phone

    I was using a refurbished Xiaomi Redmi 6 Pro (codename: sakura . I do remember buying this phone to run LineageOS as I found this model had support. But by the time I bought it (there was a quite a gap between my research and the actual purchase) lineageOS ended the suport for this device. The maintainer might’ve ended this port, I don’t blame them. Its a non rewarding work. …


  4. Running Debian on my phone

    You might have already read my blog titled ‘Running PostmarketOS on my phone’. After running pmOS on phone, my mind kept talking “run Debian”. So I started preparing for that. …


  5. Attending FOSSASIA 2023

    I attended FOSSASIA 2023 summit held at Lifelong Learning Institute, Singapore. A 3 day long parallel talk filled conference. Its my second time attending FOSSASIA. The first one was 2018 summit. Like last time, I didn’t attend much talks but focussed on networking with people. A lot of familiar faces there. PV Anthony, Harish, etc. …


  6. Running PostmarketOS on my phone

    Couple of weeks back I installed PostmarketOS on my idle phone Leeco Le 1s , which was paper weight for some time now. …


  7. Laptop refreshment

    (Sorry if you have read this already, due to a tag mistake, my draft copy got published) …


  8. Trip to misty mountains in Munnar

    Munnar is a hill station in Idukki district of Kerala, India. Home to 2nd largest tea plantation in the country. Lot of people visit here on summer and in winter as well. I live in the neighboring district of Munnar though I never made a visit. In my mind I pictured Munnar as a Tourist trap with lots of garbage lying around. …


  9. Changing LCD screen of car infotainment system

    I have a 2013 model used car that I bought two years ago. It came with a 7 inch touch screen infotainment system on its dash board with features like navigation, Bluetooth phone connectivity and a good FM AM radio. Except the radio I rarely use navigation or Bluetooth phone sync. After couple of months the touch started to become non-responsive. Since all important things such as call termination, mute and volume control have physical switches, I was happy with it. …


  10. Part-2 Transition from Thunderbird to Mutt

    If you read my last blog. You might know that I moved my email away from thunderbird to mutt. I thought I will miss thunderbird, nope, not even for a bit. This transition was very smooth. Only things left in thunderbird was my calendar and RSS reader. …
