Stupid crap that drives nut...

...  every time I re-install and configure a box to my likings...

  • Firefox favicons
Makes me go bananas... There used to be a Firefox extension that simply combed your Bookmarks, and dloaded every single favicon, as well as testing your Bookmarks for broken links...
But the developer got pissed off with Firefox and removed that extension.

  • Date column on Evolution
This one seems stupid enough, but nevertheless, it really fucks my workflow up, specially on tiny screens like on the X140e...
The Date column on Evolution is HUGE! It steals a huge amount of screen real estate just because, and AFAIK, there is no way of setting this on a global way, you have to change the width on every single directory you have.

Lazy Sunday Afternoon (II)

Last week artists...
Like I said, the music is rate is slowing down... As we approach the end of the year, I have more and more work and shit to do.

Lazy Sunday Afternoon

I still don't know why there is a difference between the available packages to update if you do a:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

Than if you use Linux Mint's Update Manager...

Lots And Lots of Work

...Towards the end of the week... Forced me to neglect for a couple of days my beloved O Ese Diez...
This last quarter is booming with a lot of freakin' work...
"In The Future Computers Will Set You Free", yes... Unless you work maintaining those computers, in which case you'll work like a MOFO.

115K and counting!

Another thousand up...
Yes, I know the rate is somehow slowing, but I have a lot of offsite work, and really not much time for music these days.

Linux Mint 18 on the Thinkpad X140e

Got fed up of Unity... It is pretty nice, but, definitively not my cup of tea, besides, it is a bit too much of a heavy load for the little X140e...
So, today swapped SSD and installed LM 18 XFCE onto the little lappie.
The WiFi card isn't recognized upon installation, you have to either use Ethernet or, lucky me, a USB external one, that got recognized without an issue.
After making the actual install, and, just to be safe, installing the whole batch of the first updates, go to System > Driver Manager and enable the built in WiFi card, reboot, and presto, all is golden.

Lubuntu Minimal Installation

Yesterday the GF had a "Sunday Girls Out" so I took the time to play a bit with the Ubuntu Mini CD installation...
Pulled out the SSD from the T60p, loaded a plain vanilla SATA, and then the real fun started!
Choose the "Lubuntu Minimal Install" on the menu, and, after installing 697 files, a plain desktop showed itself...
A damn ugly one, sporting the Debian logo nonetheless...
I won't stay much on the LXDE land...

The Illustrated Mirror

During the last and part of this weekend I've been randomly binge watching "Black Mirror".
I've seeing the first season's episode one a couple of years ago and I wasn't that impressed, but being able to watch all the episodes at once helped me a lot to appreciate the show.
It reminds me a lot of what a modern mix of "The Twilight Zone" and "The Illustrated Man" might be.
"San Junipero" episode is the best 80's nostalgia movie I've seen in a while.

Buried By Work

Lots, and lots and lots of work...
No joy, not at all...
I wanted to test a lot of distros, but no luck this week...
Besides, I want to migrate must of the Linux distros I have installed on the Thinkpads T60 & T60p, but, again, no time this week...
Maybe next week?

Movies During The Weekend

Actually, just a movie.
  •  Star Trek Beyond
Another one of the reboot of the franchise.
Entertaining, by far, the best, at least IMHO, was the Enterprise's arrival to Yorktown, and of course, the whole Yorktown itself.
Even tho she is no trekkie, not even close, the GF liked it.

Last.FM is Lost

Don't know what the hell is going on with Last.FM, but scrobbling is failing miserably for me, for more than 24 hours now...
Their status page as of right now has an 11 hours old post.

I Simply Can't Live Without My Scrobblings

Got Temperature?

one liner to get the temperature... This one specifically from a Bs. As. source, the text only version of La NaciĆ³n Online newsparer.

    wget -q -O- | egrep --color=never Temperatura
    echo -e

The parsing is way simpler than the one used on the script I linked above, but the site seems to be a little a bit slower responding...
Anyway, plain and simple... It just works.
