Tux Machines (TM)-specific
When Kororaa changed their name to Korora I wondered why? But today I think I've spotted the real reason.
We haven't had a donation drive since 2011 and now is a good time. As some of you know, I recently lost one of my gigs and I've yet to replace that income. After a protracted illness, I'm feeling much better these days and have tried to ramp up my work around here. If you'd like to help keep TM coming to you, please see my donation page for details how to help.
I've been playing Half-Life recently, something to which I've looked forward for quite some time. I did get it playing under Wine years ago, but I thought I only got a little ways. I'm stuck In the Rails right now, but I remember this level.
Even when I'm not able to update the site as much as I would like, please note the feeds Tuxmachines pulls in. In the side columns below the fold are Linux.com, LinuxToday.com, and more. On the news feed page is a wider variety.
Well, I hoped the hardware issue of earlier was just a scare, but apparently not. Now my machine locked up while idling. What do you think, motherboard?
Since I imported my mail into kmail 4.8.3, my old Mail folders haven't been updated. Where the heck is my mail stored?
That crazy puppy. He's such a nutball. Tonight he caught some kind of big *ss bug that started squawking when Fred chomped down on it and he ran all around the yard to try and get away from it. But it was in his mouth. It took him about 3 laps to figure it out. lol It was hilarious.
I don't usually do this, but:
My sister forwarded this to me and since things are so dismal in the world these days, I thought a few chuckles might be the order of the day.
I have this puppy and I discovered a couple of weeks ago that he is terrified of WD-40. Then I forgot his intense fear and used it again this evening. So, weird. Why would a little puppy be so scared of WD-40?
I just got my first traffic ticket in years and years. It's been so long that I can't even remember.
A bad thunderstorm is rolling in. Anyone wanna bet me how long before the lights go out?
Yep, there go the tornado warning sirens...
Hey, some may have noticed that we've been offline for a bit. We experienced some rather bad storms the other night and many lost electrical service. That includes me and tuxmachines. It's back on now and hopefully the predicted storms tonight won't knock us offline again.
Sorry for the delay in getting started today. I got up this morning and my work machine was not going to work no more. I'm back up now and will update the site as soon as I can.
