Saturday degunking

It was that time once again... I can't believe it, but the last time I did it was June of last year.
My beloved Stilgar was running hotter and hotter and noiser and noiser, so it was time to take it apart and to see what can be done about it, besides, I got a CPU thermal paste during my vacations, and what a better chance to use it?
Also there was the fucking creaking situation too... And oiling a bit the fan too...
The amount of gunk I found on the heat sink was amazing,
Stilgar is now assembled again, and working A Ok (Damn! You gotta love the Thinkpads...) I'm posting this crap from my beloved T60p.

Chromebook for the elite

I love the new Google VIP laptop.
I like the aluminum chassis, the shape of it, a perfect 90 degree angle box no frills whatsoever.

I hate the OS, but as expected, it can run Linux.
I hate the meager 64 GB for internal storage, I'm too old to get used to a cloud only solution.

Argo Night

I finally got to see Argo last night, it looks like it finally had a DVD release around here.
I simply fucking loved it, now I want to get my hands on Mark Bowden's Guests of the Ayatollah: The Iran Hostage Crisis: The First Battle in America's War with Militant Islam

Phone Phreak P0rn (2)

Another set of pictures I took last year.
I'm afraid there are not very good, I only had my BB at the moment.

Work && Work and more work

Lots & lots of work lately, not a single minute to post around here.
Been migrating a huge and mastodontic old Nagios setup from an ancient Fedora server to a new state of the art Ubuntu Server.
That, and also the amazing (and ultra ball breaking) heat wave around here left me with really not much strength to post crap on Oesediez.

A notch or two up

Couldn't stay without a proper TV for long... I love to fall sleep watching something.
I have to say that I fucking love the new one, obviously anything -literally anything- was destined to be better than the TV I was using, but this is ridiculous.
The best thing so far, is watching stuff from the USB key.

Just now that my TV went down I have these marvels to watch...
Got all of them on my favorite used DVDs joint, the world famous and sadly now dead Specs.

Sometime late in Dec 2012

Got lost on my BB and somehow I forgot to post it last year.

Got me a little BB 9900 yesterday.
In these times of Android, iPhones & Phablets you have to have balls to get a BB ;)
Or at least, little money or a good set of opposable thumbs.

My TV ist kaput

It died last night.
Out of the blue, the screen went vomit green, and then it simply shutdown.
Even tho it does turn back on (and it still looks like shit) it turns off automagically after a couple of minutes.
It has been with for approximately the last 14 years, so it does deserve a glorious rest.
Maybe got a virus? :P
Anyway, I was in the process of getting a newer, bigger one, so now I don't have any excuse to do so.

18K and counting!

It has been a while since the last 1K jump...
But during the summer I don't get to spend a lot of time in front of my boxes (luckily).

Whatever it takes.

Evolution: Gmail Calendar goes read-only

I hate this error, and, if the internet connection its a bit flaky it happens a lot, and I mean a lot.
So far, the only solution I found is closing Evolution, killing all remaining process (ironically usually dealing with its Calendar and the Alarm service) and then re-open it.
9 out of 10 times this fixes the problem right away.
