Backup Evolution using the Terminal

When you want to backup your Evolution calendar, mail, memos, and address book, you have to open up Evolution, go to the file menu, and then follow a few steps before the backup is saved to your computer. This is generally fine if you backup infrequently and you’re able to remember to backup the application every time you perform a computer backup. For me, I prefer automating as much of the backup process as possible.

Chrome OS Always Asking for Email and 2FA Code

The default settings for Chrome OS will not require you to enter these additional details, but if you adjusted a few account settings, you may have unexpectedly disabled a feature and are now required to also enter your email address and the authorization code when signing in.

Remove Samsung SF350 Monitor Stand Hinge

Samsung’s SF350 monitor has one major design flaw for users who wish to mount their monitor to the wall or to a monitor arm using the VESA mount. The stand hinge that is attached to the back of the monitor where the default stand attaches to doesn’t have a way to be removed.
