Happy New Year!!!!

Posted 01-01-2017 at 09:45 AM by onebuck

Hi,

A new beginning for us to have more happy days throughout the new year. My wife informs me we are done for now with work on the winter home here in Florida. Amen!!

I have a few small things to get done that are necessary. So my task stack is FIFO for now. Playing Gardner and landscaper to improve the looks on the outside. Our HOA just covers the maintenance not improvements so we need to get things looking better. We need to rearrange since some of the floral has...

Run Raspberry Pi PIXEL Desktop on a PC or Mac – an Exton modified Build 161223 with Refracta Tools

Posted 12-24-2016 at 02:24 AM by exton (Exton's Blog)
Updated 12-24-2016 at 03:40 AM by exton (More INFO)

The kernel is compiled exactly the same way as Slackware’s latest kernel huge. “My” kernel 4.9-x86_64-exton has even more support for new hardware, etc. Kernel 4.9 is the latest kernel...
