Nice thing about Window Maker is that I can tell it to arrange icons vertically on low-res 16:9 screens, like this Thinkpad T430s I usually keep in my kitchen.

It's a great little OpenBSD machine, but I switched it to Slackware so I could run #BOINC and participate in #ScienceUnited. It crunches numbers for various projects when not in use.

Nothing new from last year, not fancy but practical, games are from gog.com, and that script is for accessing internet. ( I am a big fan of stardew valley!)

No new desktop this week, so I'm digging into my archives. This is from 2012. It's Mint, prior to Cinnamon existing. Back then it was just a Gnome 3 distro. The clock on the wallpaper was functional, and was done using Conky.


Looks like we're getting this handled about 18 years before it becomes a problem, and after the fix is in place, we're going to be OK for the next 29 billion years. They'll have to handle that when it comes around.

Early as I'm occupied tomorrow morning....

It may not be immediately obvious, but is actually very usable (with a little effort) if you are not 100% free-software, but interested it for the idea of functional package management implemented in .

Here's a very nice desktop on , with apps added from - and using the non-libre kernel & firmware to have a working Radeon RX550 (from gitlab.com/nonguix/nonguix)

Premature then 😄

1 - when phone is unlocked and no app is open, launcher appears to the left
2 - one tap on the middle of the screen hides the launcher
3 - with the app drawer extended.

If apps were left active when the phone was last used, after unlock the app that was last used will be brought to the foreground and the launcher collapsed.
