I've Got a Life / Re: Fishing appears to be popular with this group

Haven't fished from a kayak or conoe since leaving Minnesota - Lake Superior not exactly the ocean.

Do need to get something like a jon boat though. Clear the shore a bit and start hauling in the 5 lb or better bass.

Dragonflies are all over the place in South Carolina; don't need to do anything special to attract them. Could use some more sophisticated equipment to photograph them though. The SCDNR has an annual photo contest that would be nice to enter.

Pretty good day at the park swimming, and waiting for the eclipse -

R.I.P Jerry Lewis

Not just a comedic actor. Prolific director and a pioneer in the techniques used to film comedy.

Photographing dragonflies has definitely been the meme for this summer; good year for them.

Some nice Halloween pennants out today. Also some huge red saddlebags out as well, but they wouldn't land.

Waterfox project

Pretty smooth browser.

IceCat was way too slow and cranked up the cpu usage.

Is icecat in the debian repos (eldest is on the vsido/win7 machine right now)?

In paranoid mode today and went to this site today which is linked in the "secure firefox" thread on the Void forum. I'll check it out later when the Void repos are back online, maybe IceCat is more in tune with VSIDO philosophy?

The other articles in the "musings" section are a good read, the systemd rant is epic.

Re-visiting Brave browser -

pretty smooth these days, and it looks like they've made some changes as far as revenue goes -

I got bored with KDE as soon as I got it installed. Back on fluxbox

All roads lead back to fluxbox.  ;D



spam the screenshot thread today - fluxbox and matching tint2 theme (tint2 theme needs monochrome icons, or maybe ACYL):

That fix appears to be the solution. No keyboard issues for a week now.
