Thankful to be alive.

Thank god not a heart attack, but I did have a major health scare. Thanx for the help from a nurse friend, I am doing better.

Found an Arch linux floppy net boot install disk. Not played with Arch linux. Good to try new things.

Made a platform to go on a tripod to hold a small tablet and a keyboard.

Praying for West, Texas and the Boston Area.

UI font substitution in newer versions of LibreOffice

Posted 04-18-2013 at 02:29 PM by Yury_T
Updated Today at 03:44 AM by Yury_T

May be old news, but in the recent versions of LibreOffice the old recipe of changing the UI font by setting a substitution for the 'Andale Sans UI' face stopped working.
These days, for the 'generic' locales (for which there's no specially pre-formed list of fonts) you have to set a substitution face for the 'Segoe UI' instead.

December 2014 update: In 4.3.* series the menubar will still use the GTK default font, though (menus themselves will show in substituted face).

I wish I had all the Google articles to support this post but I did not make notes sorry but here is a summary as I see it. It appears that Intel "outsourced" the drivers for the Cedar Trail chipset and they are only...

Getting out of a dependency hell without reinstalling

Posted 04-18-2013 at 01:07 AM by the dsc (linux-related notes)
Updated 04-18-2013 at 10:44 PM by the dsc

I'm not suggesting it's really preferable in any situation or in any specific situation, I just found myself in a "what the hell" point and thought it worth a try, and it worked.

I was just thinking that it would be nice that for slideshow videos there was a variable frame rate, and turns out that it exist. I've found that the program handbrake can handle that easily, so I decided to install. Unfortunatelly it's only on Debians unnofficial multimedia repository, which can...

CISPA Resurfacing

Posted 04-17-2013 at 11:55 AM by hydraMax (Bits and Pixels)

next to the whole House for consideration. Bill summary:

While difficult to oppose in every aspect, it seems dubious to me in its
long term implications, particularly...
