I maintain a few websites where the hosting company uses cPanel to provide a graphical user interface (GUI) that allows me to easily manage all aspects of my sites. Today I got an email from cPanel that warned me about reaching the disk quota. This happened before, but something was fishy about the email, so I didn't click on the provided links to fix the problem immediately...
List all enabled products with no images in Magento 2 with this SQL query
Sometimes when you are working on a webstore, your client might ask you totally reasonable questions like how many products have no images uploaded. To answer this question is not so easy when there are 3000+ products in said shop. As the admin interface doesn't provide an easy way to check for thumbnail-less products, I had to turn to some SQL magic to answer the question.
Enabling Numlock and tap to click on the login screen of Zorin OS (and Ubuntu)
I don't have too many pet peeves, but a disabled Numlock is annoying as hell, especially if you type numbers a lot. It is also infuriating if you physically have to click the trackpad instead of just tapping lightly once you got used to this feature in Windows.

Setting Flameshot as the default screenshot app in Ubuntu
There are a lot of great screenshot apps that you can use to convey information to others. The first one I really liked was Lightshot, which is available for Windows, Mac, or as a Chrome extension. As I am back to using Ubuntu-based Linux distros for work, I needed a similar tool.

Force Janitor to work with your upgraded Kodi installation
Janitor is an addon for Kodi that will automatically scan your library for watched movies, TV show episodes and music videos based on criteria such as age, rating or free disk space. I set it up to delete what we already saw after 2 days except if it is in a protected folder. It is a great tool to free up disk space on your device, but if you upgrade to a version of Kodi that is not supported, it will be disabled and you will have to delete stuff manually again.
How to fix Kodi black screen after upgrading to a new version
Just had this happen to me. I didn't really watch what I was doing and issued the "sudo apt-get dist-upgrade" command which for some weird reason removed Kodi from my system. After reinstalling it with "sudo apt-get install kodi" all I got was a black screen instead of the Kodi user interface.

Skipping YouTube ads in Chrome, Firefox, and Android
Ads are pretty annoying when you just want to look up something really quick on Youtube. Not as if they aren't annoying all the time, but when you are looking up instructions on CPR, you definitely don't need a long advertisement on hamburgers.
