Buzz Lightyear Vs The Vacuum Tubes!

Re-watched it during the weekend...
By Jeebus, it is awful! It didn't age well... At all.
Suspension of disbelief was at warp speed on this one...

First & Last (Hoperfully)

So it happened...
Once again... First time since I've upgraded to Qiana...
The lappie simply refused to Sleep/ Suspend, it turned on by itself.
Not a new thing around here, I'm afraid:

The current Linux Mint MATE desktop

MATE's actual look.
One of the stock Qiana wallpapers, with a customized (by me) version of CobiBird, and the über trendy Moka icon set.

Saturday Night Frost

So to speak, actually...
This has been, I dare to anticipate, the coldest of our winter season.
From now, I'm afraid it'll be up & up till we hit summer.

Winter At Full Blast

(For local standards, that is...)
Nevertheless, it is more than welcomed around here.

Movies 'Til You Drop

Movies and more movies till I crash every night after work...
The last few days I've been covered by work, no time at all for my beloved Oesediez... And no time at all for anything actually.
Only thing I did was watch a lot of movies before sleeping...

The Time Machine
Watched it on HD, the use of colour was amazing, a real eye opener to see it after many years.

The Legend of Billie Jean
Oh man! Time flies...

Where the Wild Things Are
As in Her, I was expecting a lot more.

Murph The Protector
An Ok doc,

One of the best and more entertaining movies I've seen in my life, never get tired of re-watching it.

Didn't know what to expect,  pretty much what I got in the end.

Galaxy Quest
Lovely movie. Entertaining, and the premise is hilarious.
I can watch it over and over.

A total and complete piece of crap... Who goes to the cinema to watch this shit???

Recommended by a friend.
Dystopia on the tracks.

IMHO, to date the worst Aronofsky movie I've seen.

Mad Dog and Glory
An all time classic and favourite of mine.

The current Linux Mint desktop

 Or Flatland Über Alles!
Also, this one marks the return of the Fuzzy Eco Wallpaper, this one is a stock one from the Qiana collection.

An almost complete flat look this time:
Cinnamon theme: Discreet Flat 0.9.1
Icon theme: Moka (as well as Faba, Faba Colors & Faba Mono Icons)

The GTK theme is Qiana's default Mint-X, it is simply perfect, except for the check buttons, with those damn Xs instead of the classier tildes that the Mint-Z used to have... Anyway, progress they call it ;)

My hometown WOEID

Well, maybe, not my hometown ID, but actually my home.
Incidentally, installing the applet on Mint Qiana was a piece of cake.

From ADC To Eternity!

Yes, ADC, in 2014 and still rockin'!
A DVI to miniDiplayPort adapter in the middle, and the venerable ADC to DVI Apple adapter underneath the table.
Everything working flawlessly on Mint Qiana.

Thursday, July 03, 2014 plugin on Rhythmbox 3.0.2: Fail!

The newest Rhythmbox comes without any plugin, zilch, cero.
So my beloved activity of scrobbling is on pause, at least from the lappie (still doing it at full blast on the Nexus 7, tho...).

Tried to install the plugin by hand, got the package here specifically this one.
Untarred the package and then...

Created the directories:

sudo mkdir /usr/lib/rhythmbox/plugins/lastfm_extension
sudo mkdir /usr/share/rhythmbox/plugins/lastfm_extension

And then copied the files:

cd ~/Desktop/rhythmbox-plugin-lastfm-extension_0.2.orig/lib
sudo cp * /usr/lib/rhythmbox/plugins/lastfm_extension/
cd ~/Desktop/rhythmbox-plugin-lastfm-extension_0.2.orig/share
sudo cp -R * /usr/share/rhythmbox/plugins/lastfm_extension/

But it failed... Will keep testing.

The current Linux Mint desktop

It's been a while...
But Oesediez is not Oesediez without its regular desktop screen shot.
On this case, the first one from Linux Mint 17, I'm sure a lot will follow.
