One thing I have overlooked that could be a real possibility @lwfitz...

Dizzie might be ghosted somehow in the fibers of the net as a revenge for your teasing him eons ago on how superior your bandwidth is/was compared to his

 :-* ::) :P

Et in machina

Jed might be right that it was mate related but I can't confirm.

Use apt to see what dependencies mate hauls in; maybe get an idea of what messed you up.

Do you have a different laptop you can connect?

If you connect with just the VSIDO laptop, do you get the normal speed?

Does Google WiFi have a clause in their contract where your bandwidth is throttled once a certain number of devices are connected like some cell phone providers do?

Friday the 13th

kernel 4.13

2:13 second install

ISO's uploading

(13 is Magical tonight)

Indeed



I'll check them out tomorrow.

My first guess would be that I'm getting routed through the Charlotte-Washington DC-NYC urban corridor. I was downloading around 0830 EST so I would have been competing with the morning rush. Is nixnut actually hosted in Maine?

There are just times when I get erratic speeds - might just be Atlantic Broadband is a bit wonky here in rural SC.

Getting ready to set up Hyper V on the latest Windows 10 install. Going to be looing at installing VSIDO into a Windows 10 native VM.

Prepping the drive -



getting iso -

I have to say that this new version is much smoother and, dare I say, "awesome"?  :D

Yes, much smoother - and some pretty good new features. The lua is still the same though.

Adding some yad windows to click events on polybar. Clicking on the CPU brings up the output of sensors:

Downloaded the 64-bit for uefi and uefi lite - the sha256 checksums matched.

Took me a couple tries with the x64_uefi full version.

I always get erratic speeds with the nixnut site, so a reminder to users to get the sha256 file and verify the download - one of those "Linux best practices" things, should be done for all iso downloads.

rofi - run dialog, window switcher

Been tinkering around with rofi as dmenu replacement. Functions as run dialog, window switcher (screenshots), ssh launcher, and/or desktop file run dialog. Can be configured for all 4 with CTRL-TAB cycling through the options:



Run dialog provides a history list for commonly launched applications and works like dmenu if you start typing the name of the application.

Also supports transparency -



Very nice application.

@vastone -

Do you start fluxbox so that it keeps an event log?

in the $HOME/.fluxbox/startup:

Code: [Select]
# exec fluxbox
# or if you want to keep a log:
exec fluxbox -log "$HOME/.fluxbox/log"

Be interesting to see if something was generated for this. May be worth a bug report?
