Playing with my wife tonight for the first time... let me tell you, after an hour setting up the game I just want to take a nap... then wake up and design my own tabletop game that takes 5 minutes to setup.

Alright. I fiddled with the appearance and this is what I have now for my desktop. I am starting to not hate the colors and environment prettiness.

Oh, I also got Plank running and it works better on Slackware XFCE than it ever did on Debian Mate. I wonder what the difference is?

Here's my setup. I had such an issue getting ELILO working on my system with Slackware that I decided to keep Debian for a while. Maybe after I learn a little more I will get some in my life.

Thanks to @Strit forcommenting on my post and for my Mastodon Stalker syndrome for checking out his project! You do amazing work my good sir! I am running on my new shiny .

Also, thank you to @d4klutz for his suggestion to not be afraid of losing in the process. here I come!

Have you grabbed one of the desktop backgrounds that the peeps of Mastodon made?

Here's what my desktop looks like right now!

Today, my wife and I have been married for 1 year... Here's to another year with the best hiking buddy a guy could ask for!

Also, a sneak preview of an article I'm working on... don't tell anyone.

This was our final hike of vacation! It was probably the beautiful hike, and Aayla(one of my dogs) finally got to roll around in water!

Just hiked the North Loop with my wife. She and the dogs are exhausted, but it was fun! 6.97 miles

Apparently my two pups and my wife are artists now. Those blossoms are paw prints if you cant tell by my low-res image.

P.S. if you want an awesome phone camera, don't buy the Kyocera DuraForce Pro....
