that's nice, but are you missing a font? You have that "V" in your conky - looks like what happens when the openlogos font is missing.

I have already loaded heavier line on the reels. I have to fix my oldest's rod first - she got hung up on some rocks/dockwork fishing for bluegills and snapped the tip  :'( - learning process. She has clued into casting out into the lake for lunkers though. Knowing her luck, she will land a 40 lb striped bass next trip. I will never hear the end of it if she does - she is already a master of fishing tales.

Post by: PackRat on September 06, 2014, 11:33:57 PM
I can't listen to "A Boy Named Sue" without nearly busting a gut. A long time ago, on some TV variety show (Carol Burnett, maybe), Frank Gorshin did his impersonation of Kirk Douglas singing that song. I still think of that skit whenever I hear that song; go figure.

You actually in a band, vastone?

Oh right, screenshots - same old vsido, fluxbox, conky, but with a new kernel. Somehow I managed to bork the name of the kernel, but what the hell, it's working:

No RatMan my band days are a long and far away past... I go to parties or bars and do acoustic with my beloved Martin 12 string for people who love to hear my older raspy voice. Go figure.  What kernel?
Title: Re: September 2014 Screenshots
Post by: PackRat on September 07, 2014, 12:07:47 AM
I compiled 3.16.2 on my HP laptop. Takes about an hour to actually compile on the i3. Must have that muskie on the brain and borked the name to append to the kernel. Will compile it for the desktop VSIDO tomorrow. Takes about 4 hours to compile on the old single core AMD. Then I get to do the whole nvidia thing - smxi is so good for that!

some i3 -

I always forget there is an equalizer for alsamixer. Anyone use it much?
Title: Re: September 2014 Screenshots
Post by: VastOne on September 07, 2014, 11:26:52 PM
^ I do not and I will look into the alsa EQ... What I am finding in recording using rec/sox from direct output of pulse using either pithos or GMusicBrowser is to have no EQ going and soften the output and then use an EQ on the other end which is my Nexus and PowerAmp...  I will try the alsa EQ and let you know how it compares.  I have been recording a ton of music, getting that right mix for long bike rides and long walks/runs

Are/have you made the "migraine theme" (style?) available somewhere?
The screenshots are beautiful.
I'm pretty light sensitive, even though I stopped having migraines after rolling an SUV.
Title: Re: September 2014 Screenshots
Post by: jedi on September 09, 2014, 11:38:45 PM
@jeffreyC, no I haven't made a theme.  Basically I'm just using the "Black and Blue" theme with "Caviar Dreams" for the font.  Migraines suck, so yeah I've tried to make the computer as eye friendly as I possibly can.  Seems the dark grays - dark blues are best for me...

I would like an image of what is there now EXCEPT Username: and white login space to replace the current banner that is here now on the website

The current banner dimensions are 586*238

I also prefer RGB 1 layer gimp design... :D
