Nosediving Thru Winter

Yes, well, the nose dive goes on... A really mighty winter we are having around here.
Also, it looks like this is going to be another cold week.

It's a Celebration!

We had a little event around here...
Saturday night we had dined out, a late celebration for yet another anniversary.
She got a kraut chicken with sauvage potatoes on the side and I got patagonic chicken breasts with noisette potatoes and a fried chicken, for dessert vanilla ice cream on top of a brownie.
Damn the whole thing was good!

The O & L Are Dead!

On Friday tried, guess definitively for the last time, to fix the T60p keyboard.
This time went radical, so actually pulled the physical keys from the keyboard, to see if there was gunk underneath that prevented them to work.
Cleaned the hell out of it, even tho there wasn't any big shit down there, but, nonetheless, the damn "o" and the "l" don't work.
A real pity, that lappie has performed really well over the years but I guess this is it -got it since May 2012 and it was obviously already used then-.

The current Linux Mint desktop

What the MacBook Pro looks like as of today.
A bit of dark, with a slightly lighter background and colorful icons (Numix).

Getting really close to the 200K!

Sunday Night Pasta

Pasta, pasta and more pasta!
Only if Sunday, of course!
Mighty raviolis with boiled carrots and a two part sausage... The now mighty GF stew and on top of that, white sause (once again).

Movies During The Weekend

A long weekend around here, with a Holiday on Monday, and lots of rain and cold on Saturday, so that means lots of time to watch movies with the GF.

A cat documentary handpicked for the GF, what else could it be with that title, right???
We both loved it, actually. Lots and lots and lots and lots of small cats on this one.
Oh, yeah, not sure if I've mentioned before, the GF has a soft spot for cats.

Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets:
An incredible piece of shit, a total waste of time, and of course, the thing is eternal.

Isle Of Dogs:
The best of the bunch.
Really, really cool movie, even better than Fantastic Mr. Fox.

Thank You For Smoking:
Mighty good, really funny and entertaining, the GF loved this one, it was a first time for her, a re-watch for me.

Of Unknown Origin:
Mighty good, I've seen this one like 20 years ago.
Peter Weller is a genius.

Another re-watch for me, a first time for the GF.

Gone Girl:
A re-watch, the GF skipped this one this time. I just felt like watching this one again. Couple of days ago I've also re-watched The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo as well.

Embedded (e)links(2)

Got back to text browsers lately...
So, I've been using links2 (with the graphical mode) these last couple of days.
Chrome seems to be a bit too heavy -with a couple of tabs open- on the poor little Optiplex.
As a side note, when dealing with pure text, for my untrained eye, or at least, on the sites I browse, I see no difference between using elinks and links2.

194K and counting!

really, really close to the 200K, man... Who would thought that could be possible?
