Sunday Chores

Taken last Sunday, at the GF's house.
Mixing a tiny bit of cement -with the little plastic ice cream spoon- in order to make some little tiny minuscule repairs here and there.
The life of a Repo Man is always intense.

Binge Call Saul

So, binge watching "Better Call Saul" during some late, late night sessions these past week or so.
This was the first series I started to watch when got Netflix, but somehow I've lost interest on it; maybe I was expecting sort of a new "Breaking Bad", I don't know...
For the first time in  many, many years, if I keep watching this at this rate, I'll be forced to watch an episode a week, the regular "old school plain vanilla TV series way", since that's how Netflix is releasing the latest episodes of the series around here.

Elbow Grease Chrome

Installed Chrome.
Yep, it all started more than a month ago.
Got fed up with the problems with Firefox, Chromium and Netflix, so, in the end, installed Chrome, were things have to work A Ok.
Followed the instructions (once again) given here: How to install Google Chrome in Linux Mint 18 and had to delete the file "/etc/apt/sources.list.d/chrome.list" after the installation, see the second comment.

I'm starting the program like this:

/usr/bin/google-chrome-stable --disk-cache-dir=/tmp/cache-chrome %U

The current Linux Mint desktop

Yes!
Another screen shot post!
Once again, shamelessly pushing my own theme, this time with the lighter version of Linux Mint's Mint-Y, but borderless (or is it border-less?), appropriately called Mint-Y-Borderless.

Nullflix Is Shitting Me

Don't get this...
It seems like Netflix doesn't work Just Like That in Firefox On Linux...
Or rather, don't know why, but it looks like its working only on one lappie (X140e) on all the others, it goes down on flames miserably...
I thought that maybe it is 64 bits related, but none of the other 64 bits lappies I have around seem to be working...
Fucking strange, specially since I did all the testing on the T60p which is freaking 32 bits...
