200K and counting!

And without further ado... 200K, biotches!
Just a little shy of eight years on the making.

The Current Devuan ASCII Desktop

Another shot, this time, using the Mint-Y icons from Linux Mint 19.
The GTK theme, once again, is Victory
I love this theme, clean, light, a really nice one; it goes hand in hand with the Greybird xfcewm theme.

Damn Rodent & (another) Mighty Chocotorta

A relaxed, sort of cloudy and not too cold Saturday with some chores and a prize, or reward.
Had to fix GF's mouse, the little bugger stopped working... Snapped it open, juggle a little bit with the cables and it decided to work again... Go figure...

Good thing of all of this, I get a new chocotorta.

Fuck You, Dropbox!

Dropbox will become unusable for me in November.
There is no way I'll not use encryption on my laptops, so bye & bye and fuck off.
Back to local external HDD and custom made scripts to sync stuff between boxes.
What a fucking piece of shit move, man.

Linux Mint 19: The LightDM Got Thicker

And yet another problem with the "LightDM situation" on Linux Mint 19...
This whole thing with the hanged login window is really, really annoying; I´m not upgrading to LM 19 all of my boxes just because of it.

Sunday Night Pasta

Taken last Sunday.
And what a magnificent pasta it was!!!!
Mighty Sorrentinos Juveniles, glowing with melted mozzarella cheese!
The Juveniles denomination is made by the pasta place, and they are the opposite of the Sorrentinos Marplatenses, but either those are fucking delicious.

The Lows Are Still Amazing

Ok... Winter is still lowering the marks, but, maybe I'm wrong, but you can feel the end of this is near... Dam hot weather is lurking, waiting to send everything to fucking hell.

Movies During The Weekend

Three movies during this, sort of relaxed and cool, and quiet weekend. All of the movies were a first for me as well as the GF.

Mr. Smith Goes To Washington:
Man, that was a cool movie, as usual Capra delivers.
Unbelievable, I didn't see this one before.
Funniest part was the tugs attacking children, something as un PC as it can be, unseen & unheard on today's Hollywood.

Avenger Infinity War:
A piece of shit.
Who the hell goes to a cinema to see this piece of crap?

Ghost Stories:
The best of the bunch, and a really good one too. Scary, but scary good, bot the GF and I enjoyed this one a lot. Obviously, this one was a request of the GF and her eternal love for terror movies.
