hi lwfitz 
If [a young person like you] likes Muddy Waters, then you will appreciate how special it was for me to shake hands with Sonny Terry and Brownie McGhee; in your area,, The Lighthouse at Hermosa Pier (Ave.)  I gave to Sonny Terry a harmonica. silly me.  I asked him why did he play the harmonica upside-down?  Mr. Terry said, "I just always did it that way."

Hey there!
Thats pretty cool! I was just on a job and my customer was listening to Sonny Terry. 
Spectacular musician!

Im a huge blues fan but, although I had heard John Mayer and knew he was good, his pop music kinda ruined it for me.
Now, I have two twenty year old musicians that are as close to children as I will probably ever have. They decided they wanted to see John Mayer and they talked me into going because it was three shows in one:

1) With his full band
2) John Mayer trio
3) Acoustic

I figured just seeing the trio would make it worth fighting the crowds so I handed over the $450 for three tickets as close as we could get.

While his pop music still isnt what I would listen to daily, I will listen to him live any chance I can get. That boy can play a guitar! I officially became a fan that night.

Between doing the usual Monday routine, it took me about 10 hours total to fix and upgrade Windows 10 today (there's a certain irony to that). So I took a screenshot to honor the event:

Welcome to my life.......... I feel for you buddy!



Been a while!

Thanks guys! The two smaller fish that I got were on my go to white/chartreuse spinner but that big one was caught on a fly lined live shad on 6# line and an ultralight rod.
I almost never fish live bait but the post spawn lmb bite can be tought out here. The fish get lockjaw and sometimes you just have to put crack in front of them   :D

Heres video after I hooked it. I was fishing with my buddy  Rich

You were spot on
Code: [Select]
luke@montech:~$ nitrogen -h
--force-setter=[arg]
Force setter engine: xwindows, xinerama, gnome, pcmanfm
--head=[arg]
Select xinerama/multihead display in GUI, 0..n, -1 for full
--help, -h
Prints this help text.
--no-recurse
Do not recurse into subdirectories
--random
Choose random background from config or given directory
--restore
Restore saved backgrounds
--save
Saves the background permanently
--set-auto
Sets the background to the given file (auto)
--set-centered
Sets the background to the given file (centered)
--set-color=[arg]
background color in hex, #000000 by default
--set-scaled
Sets the background to the given file (scaled)
--set-tiled
Sets the background to the given file (tiled)
--set-zoom
Sets the background to the given file (zoom)
--set-zoom-fill
Sets the background to the given file (zoom-fill)
--sort=[arg]
How to sort the backgrounds. Valid options are:
* alpha, for alphanumeric sort
* ralpha, for reverse alphanumeric sort

worked perfect

General Support / (SOLVED) Nitrogen and dual monitors

Please forgive me if this has been addressed but I couldnt find it anywhere

It appears, unless I have completely lost it, that I am unable to set a wallpaper for an individual monitor with nitrogen.



I have an nVidia 1060 card using the nVidia driver so maybe that is causing it?
