The Viet Name War

At last!
Watching Ken Burns' The Vietnam War on Youtube (thanks a bunch to whoever uploaded those!!!) on the TV thru the Roku 3.
Guess I heard about this documentary for the first tine on 2012 or so, and after seeing his masterpiece The War, I wanted to see this one ever since.
Even tho I love Ken Burns docs, I think the flash forwards on the first episode were not really necessary... IMHO those were sort of a bait, something to assure audiences that the doc will be focusing more on the USA part soon.

Winter Dies (Unfortunately)

Winter, well, that thing that we had around here that should be winter it is about to end.
Of course, the MF leaves the room with an effing torrid day.
I'm afraid this summer is gonna suck big time.

154K and counting!

And, yes, you're right, another thousand up.
Listening to way too much music...
Right now I'm at an average of 72 tracks a day.

A Little Help with The Power (Button)

So, once again I had to replace (after doing a field repair on the power button) the keyboard of my beloved Thinkpad T420 with an old one I had around that it used to be originally from the X220.
This whole thing of swapping and swapping keyboards is due to the damn flapping 9 key, that I got on a keyboard (doh!) as a nice trade with some spare parts a while back.
The power button was a bit flaky, so I added a piece of tape to act as a kind of shin in order for the power button to actually reach and push the toggle to turn on/ off the lappie.
So far the thing seems to be working A Ok.

What can I say? I'm listening to music like a mean MF.
Another thousand up.

The current Linux Mint desktop

My Linux Mint setup these days...
This screenshot comes from the Opti, but I pretty much have the same thing on the other boxes as well.
The theme is the now mythic Adapta, while the icons are the famous Numix Circle, all flat and material like, long past are the days of the days of the fuzzy, out of focus, eco-friendly wallpapers.
