Xenial Wallpapers

Guess I could say that any of those, I mean the stock ones, are my cup of tea...
On Trusty at least, there was one wallpaper (see screenshot) that IMHO was rather good, and I've used it a lot.
Now on Xenial I don't get to stay on any of the stock wallpapers, all of them are sort of boring.

Movies During The Weekend

  • Legend
Boy was that a boring one or what...
Sort of a Goodfellas with fish and chips, but lousy.
The GF wanted to see this one...

  • Fright Night
Amazing one, a bit naive, maybe, but a wonderful movie to re-watch, guess I saw that one on VHS some 30 years ago.
The GF loved it too.

  • Christine
Another re-watch (obviously).
It aged quite well, entertaining to see it once again, after I don't know how many years.

The Unity Desktop

My trusty T60p, Stilgar, now with a new Xenial Xerus install on its SSD.
Running a long time icon companion here... The Moka icons, but this time with the OSX-Arc-Shadow theme.
I would say the thing looks rather nice.

Get Rid of (Notifications of) Updates, updates, updates & more updates...

So, it looks like I finally found the source of those annoying update Notifications I posted a couple of weeks ago...
Simply click on the Install button for the "OS Updates" entry (the other two will go away automagically later on) be done with.

Stilgar Got a Solid Drive

 Time to upgrade!
Yesterday got an SSD drive (the cheapest one I could find around here) for my old, trusty, clunky and beloved Thinkpad T60p.
Installed Ubuntu, Xenial Xerus, 32 bits of course.
Yeah, I know... I wanted to hold a minute or two until Xenial, but, what a hell, time for new things I guess!
