Debian Sid Installation Tidbits (T60p & T43)

Some notes of the install process on both the T60p and the T43

After making a Debian net install from a Debian 9, choosing only the "SSH Server" and the "Standard System Utilities" options upon the Software Selection.
After the install is over (on an encrypted LVM, of course) installed:

sudo apt-get install sudo zile

Yes, sudo, I'm an old fart and I like to have a root account around, of course, closed to SSH, also I like to use Zile a lot, a minimal Emacs.
Then, with that installed, edited the "/etc/apt/sources.list" file, to look like this:

deb sid main
deb-src sid main

All the other entries are commented... If you are using proprietary drivers, the "/etc/apt/sources.list" file looks like this:

deb sid main
deb-src sid main

## Non Free
deb sid main contrib non-free
deb-src sid main contrib non-free

Again, all the other entries on the file are commented...
Proprietary drivers or not, after editing the file, issue a:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
sudo apt-get autoremove

Then reboot the box:

sudo reboot

Some other programs I've installed to complete the setup:

sudo apt install apt-listbugs apt-listchanges
sudo apt install alsa-utils
(alsamixer to unmute (m) and then speaker-test to check buttons)
sudo apt install xorg
sudo apt install i3
sudo apt install links2
sudo apt install pmount (to mount USB drives as regular user)

(No) Movies During The Weekend

Well, we couldn't watch a single movie this past weekend... Unbelievable, no matter we are on the verge of winter, we did not have time for it.
This weekend promises rain (a lot, and everyday) on top of that Monday is a holiday, so most likely we'll be able to watch some movies.

Dreadful Mirror

Man, what a magnificent way of destroying a franchise!
I loved Black Mirror right from the start (Link 1) and watched the following seasons (Link 2 & Link 3), but damn if the latest one is not a complete piece of stinking shit.
What a hell were they thinking? And only 3 episodes? I mean... C'mon, dudes! If you'are going to kill one of your best products, at least do it with some grandeur.
