Re: bones

I've been strangely satisfied with Gentoo, really. I think I came back to it because I had two (or was it three?) failed attempts to install it, previously, and stubbornly didn't want to leave it at that. I'm really happy with the results on the lappy, it's very lean and fast with fvwm, and everythi...

Re: bones

Somehow, everything's coming up Gentoo for me these days. Acquired a new ThinkPad T61 recently, and this happened:

And also a Dell Optiplex 980 desktop, and this happened:

I like it a lot. Blast from the past using Gnome 2! After I swap out the CD drive for a DVD drive, however, I will put OpenIndiana 2017.10.31 on the same box.

Re: Favorite browser

There's also neXT-browser https://next-browser.github.io/ I've been giving this one a try on the mac. It has promise, but right now it's painfully slow. Maybe I should try it on linux to compare. Otherwise I've been really happy with FF Quantum. Still keeping qutebrowser around, too; it seems to be...

Re: bones

bacon, it has been doing rather well. We had a stellar holiday season this year, even better than previous years. Alas, we still can't quit the day jobs just yet. We have to figure out how to sustain that kind of sales year-round, in order to do that. We'll get there one day!

I've been using qutebrowser and also Min browser on the Mac. Both make browsing on the Mac pretty tolerable.

Re: good morning, good night

Yes, it is May, so my seasonal allergies (hayfever) are kicking in as well. Typically lasts until about the first or second week of July. The Willamette Valley is the grass seed capitol of the world, so it can be hell for hayfever here. Looks like a great weekend ahead, though. Sunshine and low 80s°...

Re: IBM/Lenovo ThinkPads

Received the T420 yesterday. Booted it up just fine, poked around Win 7 for a bit, discovered that the DVD drive doesn't work. No big deal, install from thumb drive. Rebooted, and Win 7 decided to auto-update itself, which resulted in Win 7 being hosed. Haha, oh yeah, there's a reason I don't use Wi...

I just grabbed this very clean T420 for $150. The Windows 7 installation, however, won't last past the first hour in my hands. :)

Re: bones

OK, I admit it. I have become an unabashed fan of cinnamon since using it with Debian, and now Slackware. For a full-featured DE, it is my new choice.

Happy Walpurgisnacht, my friends! :P
