Debian Jessie - 3 weeks in

Tags 8.1, jessie

Well, I've been using Jessie for about 3 weeks now and after a rocky start, everything is going smoother. Samba was not a big all night process this time since I backed up my /etc folder before doing a fresh install (along with my home folder of course).

Cinlerra & Firefox installed without a hitch since as of right now they are just downloadable binaries. Audacity, and Avidemux would not install without first upgrading some libraries. I believe this might have been due to an...

Adding a "copy image to clipboard" editor (not really) to geeqie

But some people have come up with scripts that do that. I've copied one from somewhere that looks somewhat like those found here:

Hi,

Days before Labor Day holiday and the forecast is for July temps in September. In central Illinois when the temps get near 90 with the humidity above 80% it can be unbearable. Our golf league has moved our start times to 10:00 a.m. That helps a bit and we are not wasting time to get a round in. Today we got nine holes in 1 hr 20 minutes for a five-some. Consolidated the teams to get in before it got to hot.

My putting has gone to the pits lately. Practice, practice...
