 8) No disloyalty here, just messing around with the Arch partition with the updated awesome wm.  Pretty nice bling for tiling.  Just when I thought I was out (of tiling again), "They Pull Me Back In!"   :'(



 ??? When you add in tmux to the mix, wow, you can get really lost in what you've opened...   ???

My first guess would be that I'm getting routed through the Charlotte-Washington DC-NYC urban corridor.

Is nixnut actually hosted in Maine?

No.  I'm told by them (IcdSoft located in Hong Kong) that the server is physically located somewhere in Boston MA. (actually a suburb called Waltham?) It's supposed to be pretty secure and should be serving those ISO's up at a pretty snappy  ??? uhhhhh  ???, I'm not sure exactly how fast.  I've been with them since about '07 or '08.  ;D It is their "Business Plan" account.  I started with a "Personal Plan" account, but there just wasn't the space. (1Gb) Also the 1TB of space and all the extra security features make the biz account way more sensible for the money.  Anybody decides to get their 'server' there should let me know first so I get a discount/referral break. Taint cheap!  And as an added plug for them, I've NEVER been down, and have always had support in less than 10 minutes.  (all trivial issues that they were happy and quick to fix!!)  I've also NEVER lost any data, and as far as I know and can tell NEVER been breached...
MOF it is pretty much like having an extra 1TB hdd for my personal cloud!  :D
I get (here at home in Presque Isle, Maine) on average about 6.4MB/sec when grabbing the ISO's.  I can UL to nixnut at 2.0MB/sec which is the upper limit of my home connection.
I actually have computers here at home hooked up that are slower than the internet connection!  8)

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 -

^ Thanks RatMan... interesting to hear you sometimes have issues with NixNut.. I upload there and pull stuff constantly and never have an issue..  I use Filezilla for the uploads and the speeds never waver

I wonder why you would see different throughput ,,,

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.

So I thought I saw a scrot of PackRat's depicting the awesomewm.  Rather than mess up my perfect goto of VSIDO, I booted into an Arch partition and installed the new version. (4.2?)  I've used 'awesome' before in the past just to mess with LUA.  I have to say that this new version is much smoother and, dare I say, "awesome"?  :D

Clean shot with a fairly simple setup...


Dirty shot showing some transparency!
