Saturday Night Asado

It was hot, it was messy, but somebody has to do it...
An amazing asado after the hellish heat we were having this afternoon.
A bife ancho steak, with side toppings of broiled carrots along with broiled potatoes.
The culmination of a terrifically hot, but amazingly good, last Saturday for 2017 with the GF.

(No) Movies During The Weekend

Well, actually it's been a while since we watched a movie.
The GF is away doing some errands, and the last weekend we have been terribly busy and had no time to watch anything.
During the holidays I got to see a couple of things, tho...

The Toys That Made Us
Fantastic documentary, the local Netflix released the first four episodes.
The episode dealing with Star Wars toys is fantastic, although it is recommended to also watch Plastic Galaxy.
He-Man's episode is fantastic, the thing looks like something Tom Wolfe might have written.

Most of all because, along with War Horse (which I saw a couple of week ago) this one was in the "to watch" list.
It was really good, interesting, but looooong.

A re-watch of course, these last couple of days I've been watching the (classic of course) Sagan's Cosmos before going to sleep.

The Great Timbuk2 Turkey Shoot

Actually more like the semi-mandatory annual wash of my bag, which was kinda gross, not on the outside, but on the insides.
Since it started to peel-off, its innards are full of small chips of grey plastic pieces.
What a hell, I have to take advantage of the insane amount of heat we'are having around here... The bag will be dry as a bone tomorrow.

Incidentally, the trusty bag is really starting to show its age.

Switch The Command with The Option Key

Damn! I've spent hours and hours researching how to fix this... And the answer is so damn simple!

Ever since I've started to use the little MacBook Pro, I was desperate with the placement of the Command (Super or Windows) key and the Option (Alt) key on it's lovely and sturdy keyboard, it turns out that on Apple is inverted compared to my Thinkpads and my Happy Hacking keyboard, so, muscle memory and all, and I was about to cut my fingers.

I've tried every trick, snippet and configuration option and recipe that both setxkbmp and xmodmap had in store, to no avail...

But the solution is as simple as executing this on a sudo su - Terminal:

echo "1" > /sys/module/hid_apple/parameters/swap_opt_cmd

That line changes everything and makes the little aluminum lappie completely and totally usable.

It was months since we had milanesas with the GF, we had a rainy Saturday, so no asado for us!

Nose Dive

Luckily Saturday night rained like Hell, and, as usual, after that temperature dropped -at least for local standards during December-.
May this weather Nirvana stays with us for the whole of the summer!

The current Linux Mint desktop

A lot of time since I've post a screenshot here on dear ole Oesediez...
This is the one I'm using on the new Macbook Pro, nothing fancy, a plain Adapta + Numix icons setup beauty.
Life is good.

Edibles During The (Past) Weekend

Saturday Night Asado followed by Sunday Night Pasta.
The meat with marvelous broiled potatoes and magnificent carrots pass thru the fire.
All glory to the GF's now mythic stew (on the pasta of course), on this case they were ravioli with a bit of dry pasta as a supplement.

American Made
What a fantastic movie, by Jeebus From The Underworld!
Both the GF and I enjoyed like monkeys while watching it.

FUBARed Spotify on Chrome

Started yesterday, accessing Spotify's webfront doesn't play/ reproduce anything at all.
Usually there was a rather similar problem, but a reload of the page used to fixed that.
No luck with the reloads for now, so, you know, maybe this is the end (for the time being) for Spotify... Hello Youtube.

Moday Night Movie(s)

Yesterday got to see some movies that I got sort of pilled up and waiting.

The Iron Giant
Had this one queued for more than a year... No time to watch it.
Nice, entertaining, it oblviuosly has a lot of E.T. on it.

Damn if I know what the hell the people see in Nolan.

War Horse
Mostly because its a Spielberg film and I wasn't even aware of that until I saw the Spielberg doc.

Movies During The Weekend

That is, during our previous weekend, not this one.
A bit of a mix selection, I guess...

The Captains
Nice one, Shatner is The King, no questions asked.
Avery Brooks is nuts, and the Bakula rules, Patrick Stewart looks like he is always mucking you, with a smirk smile flourishing.

Logan Lucky
Cool one, the opposite of Soderbergh's Ocean Eleven.

Chaos on The Bridge
I've already saw this one, but we perused a bit of it with the GF.

Zoolander 2
We enjoyed this one.
We had on queue for over a year, and finally got to see it, we found it funny like the first one, don't know why the critics panned it.

My Spotify Year

Almost 30 thousand minutes...
Quite a lot, considering that I only listen to Spotify thru its webfront, and also stopped using it for quite a while when scrobbling to went fubar.
That is, from around April to August 2017 I've stopped using Spotify to listen to music because scrobbling simply stopped working.
But, I've discovered Chrome's Scrobbler extension, and then jumped back onto Spotify.

The Apple Glitch Is Fixed

Or so its seems at the moment...
Well the thing is working now, I mean Suspend on the "new" MacBook Pro.
Turns out you need to run:

echo LID0 > /proc/acpi/wakeup
echo XHC1 > /proc/acpi/wakeup

And, on top of that, I've discovered that the MacBook Pro can't Suspend with the lid open, it is mandatory to close it once you suspended the lappie.

Sunday Night Past

And if you don't like it, deal with it.

Due to health considerations, the grilled cheese was intentionally left out of the picture, so, once again, deal with it, rock'n roll... Er, pasta!

A Little Glitch with The Apple

Well, Houston we have a problem.
The "new" MacBook Pro refuses to Suspend (and Hibernate)... This is a major PITA.
I'm researching what the hell is the problem, pretty certain I'll have to install from scratch.
