Hi,

It's snowing and wet with wind. Overcast with no sunshine for the past few days. I like to walk at least twice daily since I no longer live on the farm. Hard work that I cannot due any longer because of my health. I walk to my iPod music to get a good cadence for cardiovascular workout for my heart. I could use my bicycle but the area is covered with snow & ice. In my younger days I delivered mourning & evening newspaper routes using my bike with riser bars along with...

ExTiX Linux Live DVD 64 bit is based on Debian Jessie/Ubuntu 14.10. The original system includes the Desktop Environment Unity (Ubuntu). After removing Unity I have installed Gnome 3.14 (in ExTiX 15.1, build 150104) respectively Razor-qt 0.5.2 (in ExTiX Light, build 141019). The system language is English in both versions of ExTiX.

I just bought a lenovo t410 off of ebay. I think it was used overseas or in Canada, as it has a wimax card and wimax is not very huge in the U.S. (the big isps need to squeeze as much money as possible out of us after all). Anyway, I had an old toshiba satelite p4 (3.2ghz I believe) that I had to put linux on as windows XP ran the fans underneath constantly (fans underneath!? This is what caused the overheat problems on many toshiba models. The brand now goes into my do not buy category along with...

Well, for work at least.

I use Debian Live (Jessie) to do my work, at work, rather than using Windows as installed. The boxes are unfortunately P4s, so not exactly modern and snappy.

For the past few months, I have been using a desktop which I replicated from Crunchbang. Openbox, tint2, a simple conky config and their keyboard shortcuts. I've been happy with it, and accessing the menu with <Super>-<Space> is great.

With a new live build, something...
