Xmessage choice window in .xinitrc

Posted 04-10-2010 at 12:13 AM by William (Dthdealer) (Whaling the FOSS)

My Debian system is currently setup without a graphical login manager ( such as gdm or slim ) so the system boots to the console login screen. From here I enter and if I want to start Xorg manually with the 'startx' command.

My original window manager was Window Maker, a really lightweight wm based around some of the principals of the NextStep interface. Programs have 64x64 'tiles' to launch and manage them, and the whole window manager in my opinion is aesthetically pleasing....

Future-Proof journal

Template for a future-proof journal in HTML and CSS. Future proof for the file is practically plain text and if in the future W3C finally loses its grip and web browsers disappear as we know them, you can still extract your information.

This follows my comment on Penguinator's blog post on Plain Text

There are three basic files
  1. The index
  2. An example journal entry
  3. The CSS file handling all styles for the journal

Pop each into their filenames in the same directory...
