I must admit that implementing btrfs (luks lvm) on 18.04 has worked much better than on . No crashes or infinite loops during shutdown.

Ok I have given up trying to do a bare metal install of on this laptop. Cant get the trackpad to work and a usb mouse is spotty at best.

Using it in a VM for the time being...

So this was my little 30min project before dinner tonight... Lets see how it goes!

You know what bugs me - Dumb people. Not intellectually but those who lack commonsense.

They are everywhere today. Grrr

Shakespeare by the Bow in Calgary. Nice night for a date night.

Best linux app for storing & organizing photos?

Anyone use btrfs on a distro other than OpenSUSE?

My 3 girls who don't like conventional sports took to archery, knife throwing and axe throwing today. Plus my 8 year old went off a cliff on a giant swing as well as the zipline while teenage boys were crying to get off...

At least my 6 year old won't starve when the apocalypse hits...

I've been using Linux for 18 years. Indeed the purity argument is as old as Linux itself. But the truth is, purity doesn't get the job done for everyone. Sometimes we have to compromise to get the perfect environment that works for each of us. Remember that Linux gives us freedom of choice. We have the FREEDOM to build the environment we want, not the one that's expected by the elitists. Software FREEDOM not software communism. If you don't like something, use something else. CHOOSE.

My rant of the day is over. Have a good day everyone! Got to pack for vacation

And cue the barbarians at the gates.... this week it's Manjaro under siege.

Nothing says linux and free software like the virtual lynch mob. Its a new thing every few days.

Nuked my Windows ssd on my desktop tonight and install Archlabs. Woohoo!

No longer needed Windows because the bios can be updated from within since the latest version came out...

Now I just have to remember pacman

If anyone is interested in U2F keys for login/sudo etc.... try Hypersecu keys. Canadian company and works well alongside my yubikeys.

Plus I only paid $8 CAD for a key as opposed to $25-45 for yubikey. Maybe not as robust as yubikeys but still decent

Wow my Xubuntu 18.04 setup just hit a 5.0 kernel with the latest update...

My kids and their friends have shown interest in Linux and other open source tech since I began my career change about 12 months ago.

And so in the spirit of what Dasgeek has been doing with his local linux group, we have decided to start a small replica for my kids and friends in our area.

The talented and awesome @ohyran made this awesome avatar/logo/mascot for our little group. Thanks Jens!

bad parenting?
