Very much enjoying this documentary on Netflix: God. Brought to you all by my man Morgan Freeman.

What a long and crazy day. Curling up and passing out in 3...2...

We bought Purple Rain on vinyl and another ukulele today. My house is full of Prince right now and my son rocked out with me. Successful day!

My spouse and I celebrate Valentines Day on the 15th when everything is half price. Her view on it was "I want you to show me you love me everyday, not just one day a year because card companies told you to."

Came across this gem via #Reddit. #SolVItaire is a #solitaire game for your terminal. I'm assuming the "VI" means #Vi / #Vim bindings? πŸ˜‰

Man oh man that FreeBSD install was painless!

I finally have my Toshiba NB300 set up the same as my newer laptop. When the kids get home this weekend I'll set them up users and they can learn how to navigate .
I have already showed them on mine and they seemed ok with it. Their main question was "will we have to wait as much?" 😁
It's now much snappier and boots way faster than with Xubuntu.

Oh, and don't worry; the urxvt only gets used for updating at that transparency, it's not very usable πŸ˜†

You ever think about people you meet here, and how you find out they write books or play instruments or bake or make pottery or paint or speak multiple languages or write code or fix cars or make clothes or grow flowers or play baseball or train dogs or design graphics or mountain bike or teach nutrition or knit or build furniture or draw, and you can't believe you get to talk to these talented humans? Know what I mean?

@brad here it is currently. stumbled over the wallpaper on wallhaven.cc frontpage.
I like it, and merges the black of the into the black nicely.
, late maybe.

@brad Here's what I have so far, terminal colours set with pywal but I'l find something nice and put it in .Xresources instead of my teal and magenta "cyber" colour scheme lol.

I severely reduced the stuff displayed from what it does by default. I don't need the date or network displayed, nor time remaining on battery.

Also attached is how it was.
because.

@brad @rtwx Not much to show. The internet status is basically, if it's up it shows the message you see. It shows the free memory. My setup atm is that I use most programs on separate workspaces, like this rtv. I don't usually use wallpapers, since most of the time I never saw them. I use st terminal emulator, currently it serves me well. I use the Luke Smith version:

I use xdo for hiding polybar with a shortcut, here is a short how-to I wrote, I also linked to the reddit post:

I don't have my dot files uploaded anywhere, I don't really think it's public ready. I should probably clean up some of the configs too. :)

So Family Tree DNA has been working with the FBI.

I can't say I'm surprised, I suppose with things like the Patriot Act it was basically inevitable.

I wish people would think more critically before handing over their DNA to for-profit companies, or anybody for that matter.

So now I've booted back into and done an update already.

I'd like to say Linux updates fast because I do it most days (rolling release), but if I'm on Windows and check for updates every day it still takes a few hours each time.

What a horseshit cobbled together OS.
