AT Head shot

My name is Alexandar Tzanov, a full-stack LAMP web developer and a web server sys-admin. I started blogging shortly after the inception of WordPress in 2003, and I have not stopped posting. As a computer programmer, gamer, and film enthusiast, Titan Fusion is a place for me to share my experiences, thoughts, and to create memories.

  • Empty space is distracting

    Every once in a while, I see people on Twitter and YouTube show off their minimalist desks. Today I saw someone, on Twitter, show their big acrylic desk with just a PC, pair of speakers, io devices, clock and a water bottle. By my count, there were less than 10 objects on that big desk.…

As a user, with an established buying history, who regularly shops on the site, I shouldn’t have to keep seeing ads, including the in-house ones. Ads are always last to load, and…

  • Cloudflare, DKIM, and 1024 vs 2048-bit key length.

    I recently had to configure a domain in Google Workspace to process mail with Gmail. To authenticate messages and avoid SPAM filters I had to configure DKIM by generating a key and then creating a DNS record to store said key. The DNS record is of type TXT. The value of a TXT record has…

  • How to get the Windows drivers for Sony Inzone M9?

Without the drivers Windows simply shows the monitor as “generic display” and lists it as “HDR not certified”. To locate the drivers download page go to the Sony product support page and…

  • Happy Birthday Matt

    Happy birthday to my fellow Texan Matt Mullenweg. It is thanks to Matt and his inquisitive nature that I started blogging on Titan Fusion 20 years ago using the wonderful WordPress. Thanks Matt, happy birthday, and to many more!
