A while ago you answered a question about a lightweight keyring. Do you recall the name of it?

Giving another shot. I've hated it before, but I'm using less extensions than last time (about two and a half years ago) and it has gained functionality since. The only thing I would miss is a slideshow wallpaper. Some of those kind of extensions are (as far as I know from the comments) too old. Let's see how well it'll go.

I love duckduckgo I will not use google search again! I was trying to find a political article posted sometime ago for a friend. I searched google and all I saw was anti-Trump articles. What I was looking for was 8 pages deep. I used the same terms on duck duck go and it was the third link down. I am tired of companies like google trying to push specific view points and not giving me what I was actually looking for. Search engine should not be bios on either side.

@HexDSL What program do you use to lock your i3?

I've come back to i3, at least for the time being. I still use mostly GUI applications, but I like the orderliness of i3.

@ChrisWere Does Oblivion work on Steam Play?

I tried giving a try with Doom. I This is something I'll have to eat crow about the subject anyway. Doesn't work. A few people have the same problem, but no one has the fix. I refunded it.

I can see using for games you already own, but this will bite gaming in its ass. Now developers just won't target Linux when the game runs fine in Steam Play. "But buying games w/SP will count as a Linux purchase!" Doesn't negate what I've said, in fact it exacerbates it. "Some games will never be on Linux so this is acceptable." Well, now the chance is less than zero. Console gaming is going to kill itself with streaming and now Linux gaming is dead. Thanks, everyone.

Happy Birthday, Debian. 🎂 🎉 🎈
25 years old.

Ian Murdock announced #Debian on August 16th 1993. The first release, 0.01, was made the next month, on September 15th.

Congratulations & thanks to the Debian volunteers, past and present, for making it such a fantastic distro. Here's to the next 25 years.

Still screwy on my laptop.

Threw on my gaming rig. I miss having a wallpaper slideshow, but I still have installed.

I've been having problems with viewing on my Linux machines. Disabled uBlock Origin and lookie-lookie:

Decided on trying i3wm. I love how it keeps things orderly and auto-maximizing my blooming windows. I blame @HexDSL for this 😉

Playing with this week and it's rather neat and easy to get used to. Found solutions to brightness and a few other things. Don't know if I'll switch from .
