I'd be happy with some refreshing chill, it's going to be 41C / 106F here today! :(

 :D  I'm thinking ozitraveller should consider inviting me to the abode where those temps are at!  I would be very quiet and you wouldn't even know I was there!  :-X This is exciting, let me know when you want me to arrive, and I'll get it set up!  ???

So as I was saying, we've really been hit hard by this latest blizzard weather over the course of the last 2 days and still one day to go.  We are down to one entrance/exit from our home at the moment.  We still haven't got out of the driveway yet.  My wonderful son came through in the clutch as I have bronchitis and he made two runs yesterday with the snow blower.  Not that you can tell.  We have an aprx 6 ft. high bank packed in at the end of the driveway thanks to the county plow trucks.  Makes it almost impossible to snow blow your way out of it.

So in the picture your seeing, I took this at sometime between 1:30 am and 2:00 am on Monday early morning in the dark so excuse the lack of real focus.  Couldn't use the flash so my hands might have been a little shaky.  :D

So if you look closely enough you'll see this was taken in the mud room of the house where we enter from the inside through the garage door which is directly to my left in the picture (not shown) and the outside entrance to the mudroom facing the street which is the focal point for the picture.  Your looking at at least 15 feet of snow drifted up against the house.  This runs all the way across the length of my driveway (3 cars wide) tapering down to about 5 feet.  These are like dunes with the lower ones hidden behind that first big drift that number about 4.

So hopefully this will be the last day of this blizzard.  Been a hard winter here so far.  Not looking for sympathy or anything, to the contrary, this is where we choose to live and love our lives!

Well I might accept a roommate offer in Bermuda or the Bahamas right now.  Maybe Aruba!   8)
(still haven't heard back from ozitraveller on the extended 2 or 3 month visit I could make!!!)

Oh yeah...

Happy New Year to you all!!!  I've been less chained to the computer than in the past, but with current weather the way it is that is about to change I think.  :)

Yes I know it isn't proof, however the winter warning calls for -30 by 10am EST.  -10F currently here in the frozen tundra.  The armpit of earth.  The end of the world.  (you can really see it from here)

If your wondering at my desktop look, if it aint broke don't fix it!  VSIDO is still indestructible...  Just lost my 109 day uptime status building new kernel.  Oh well.

Wow.  Supposed to see -30F tonight in windchill up here in the "Great White North".  (not sure what the real temp will be)  So much snow.  I can't believe I'm even alive at this point.   :D

Don't really use conky much anymore so no good weather displays to show you...  Take my word for it, it is bitter cold up here right now!

Definitely still a great looking setup!  Pretty sure VSIDO is indestructible!!!  :)

Could have sworn I posted this one...

The previous 'uptime' was 89 days.  This was our first real winter storm this year.  (Nov 4)
And with literally like minutes to spare, power came back on.  Still going strong, though long, long, long, overdue for an upgrade to the kernel.  I have been so uncomputered this year.   ???

Buried in snow up here of course!

Green and yellow are a such a pain to theme with; so I figured I try both at once:

Wow!  You're totally right about that for sure.  Looks really good so far!

Working on the winblows lappy.  Continuously crashes/bluescreens when appx 12 Gb's of RAM use happens.  Just not releasing memory when it is supposed to.  Nothing running and 8 Gb's + used?  Oh well.  Thank goodness for the stinkpad!

Lowest temp so far outside; 24 F.

Another Windows 10 shot.  Totally sucks.  I haven't used this laptop in months.  (The MSI)

I'll have a scrot shortly of my VSIDO lappy.  It is the stinkpad with 4 GB's of RAM, so VSIDO really screams on it.  Have had a terrible year so far!  Hope it's been good for all of you.  I haven't spoken (IRC or phone) to anyone in a long time.  Oh well, back to the goto lappy...

My goto since the wife is using the MSI...  Thankfully this little ole lappy just screams along with VSIDO!  All I need...

 :'(  Ok, so don't everyone faint or anything, but yes it is indeed a Windows 10 Pro scrot.  Now to get the dual boot working!  Never tried this before...

 :D I think maybe once I had a May-December uh well never mind.   ???

Wow.  Only a plus as a rescue CD?  This has been my OS since aprx. July/August of 2012.  Always a fix for any issue within 24 hours at the most, and a live IRC channel for support.  It's never broke unless I break it myself!  The dev is a good friend and has put years into this project, and also turned this into one of the friendliest Linux distros ever! (i.e. a really GREAT community who all want to help)

Nice professional youtube video.  Had never heard of distrotube before this.  Wish you all the best and hope your endeavor is successful.  The FOSS community needs all the help and promotion it can get.

Also we have never submitted anything to distrowatch on purpose.  The last few years, it is just a clicking contest to see which distro is most popular.  Not the greatest place for people to be looking for a dependable distro imo.

Aye, same here VastOne.  ;D Since summer of 2012 I believe!  Never broken unless, like PackRat, something I've broken myself...  8)

New mainline stable 4.16.7 seems pretty sharp.  Just a couple hours in so we'll see.
