Is the human factor again proven to be the weakest link in the chain?

Backdrop is a screenshot of an screenshot (of an game i like)
But now, aren't we objectifying the robot??
Going out on a limb here, adding the WM sleep theme desktop. Any comments?
It's not my fault. I am so in trouble now...

BSPWM window manager

I'm ready to move away from the recent flame war.
Here's my first attempt at installing & configuring bspwm. I used the SlackBuilds for 14.2.
Note you need both the bspwm and sxhkd packages, as they each have configuration files that are necessary for this tiling window manager to operate.
I didn't make many changes in the default bspwmrc / sxhkdrc files (installed in ~/.config/bspwm and ~/.config/sxhkd folders respectively).
Just changed their default terminal to xfce4-terminal, and changed the default active window color and border width, and added a line to load a wallpaper file ("feh --bg-fill [selected.jpg]").
I've also installed dmenu, which is a program launcher called by the keybinding [WindowsKey]+Spacebar. You can see dmenu at the top of the screenshot.
One of the nice features of this tiling window managers, compared with i3, is the ability to have one large tile (in my case the left half of the screen) into which you can transfer any one of the other tile contents simply by activating that tile with the mouse and using [WidowsKey]+G.
You can see conky is running in a lower right tile. Note it has to be one of the conky configs that is NOT transparent; that is, it has its own window. Otherwise it will run on the root window but everything else will conceal it as they tiles automatically expand to fill the screen.
