Had a fun day with Retropie and a bunch of SNES ROMs today. Jnr and I had a Street Fighter II turbo fest.

Oo the HDMI to VGA adaptor has arrived.
I suspect there will be a RPI test drive later today.

Jnr (9) was talking about an idea he had with test subjects and nanotech cyborgs.
Which segwayed nicely into a viewing of ST:TNG 'The Best of Both Worlds'. I think we'll be racking up 'First Contact' next.

Jnr is enthralled by 'The World According to Jeff Goldblum'.

It is a great series.

Very much enjoying 'Good Girls' on Netflix. Not quite sure how I missed it until now.

I know I have only been at work since 08:00.
I know that I had lunch around an hour ago.

But it distinctly feels like jam-on-toast-o'clock to me.

I didn't wait for the poll to end.

Installed Manjaro XFCE on the Thinkpad, and the RPI4 version on to a microSD, ready for when the HDMI to VGA adapter turns up.

I do like the look of Manjaro. It feels polished. Mmm new distro smell.

The difference between padding and margin is a bit of a quandary for CSS newcomers. This post explains the difference between them.

I'm not angry with Signal.

Just very disappointed.

The first day back after a non-working day, is always a write-off.

Both systems will be mostly used as desktop workstations.

Running probably nothing more demanding than GnuIMP.

I am looking at potential distros that I can install on both my Thinkpad T430 and a RPI4B (8GB).

I want something lightweight, and fairly light from an included apps perspective.

I have previously used Manjaro, but have mostly used Debian based distros historically.

I know it is subjective, but what are peoples thoughts on:

There's a 21" flat screen at work, that has been sat in the back of our filing room for at least 6 months.
This plays on my mind as I look at the 13" monitor I have put a side for the RPI4...

Really thought there would have been more love for MATE...

First day on this instance and I have to say it has been the most friendly and welcoming.

Thank you all.


XFCE races out of the blocks and takes an early lead!
