This is my notifications pane right now.

Because the only recent notifications I have are notifications that I have filtered out.

Okay, Dillo works!

But when I exit dillo my keyboard stops working.

Any DOS users have the same problem or should I put this down to an issue with qemu?

Okay, I gotta take a break for a minute, and go to the store and stuf before I have to be at work tonight.


I got networking working!

Base system installed. I rebooted, started the package manager, and told it to Install all the things.

This is going to take a while.

And we’re off! (And I don’t have a screenshot tool installed in this chroot, and no print screen button on my keyboard!)

In a bit, I'll start writing about how to turn a JVC Videosphere or a philco predicta(or other much more common, power efficient, and easy to find TV) in to a video phone, because of course if you have a TV that looks like this you make it a video phone.

This was the best book I read in 2016.

Has a comic book made you cry? This one might.

@ajroach42 it’s my mom’s place, so the decorations are a bit... well, nothing I would have ever chosen.

One more popcorn gif, because I've seen this movie a lot and I still don't understand this scene.
