I am keeping it simple with the theme: Flatabulous

Icon Pack: Ultra Flat Orange

I like the overall appearance of the combination, it is pleasing to my eyes and makes working rather easy.

I love the amount of effort the Aire Design put into this theme [aire] Incafe. The lockscreen has a bit of animation, the character waves at you while you unlock your device. While it is a fairly simple design, I enjoy the attention to detail and the level of charming polish on the art. It is hosted on the Samsung Theme Store, which is absolutely something Stock Android could use.

So I have disabled Google Document Suite and now I am going to use Microsoft 365 for all my online Word Processing needs. Mainly because I discovered that the Minuum Keyboard (a keyboard that I am fond of) works smoothly like it usually does in other apps that require text entry.

When using Minuum in Google Docs, the experience is horrible both laggy and Minuum would often crash. This really annoyed me, not being able to use it while creating documents was a pain. As I have calibrated Minuum to function fluidly in regards to word correction, using another keyboard hampered my creative pursuits on mobile.

Now that I know reliable performance with Minuum is possible with Microsoft 365, I won't use Google Document Suite but I shall maintain my Google Drive for cloud saves of my favorite games but nothing more. I have even mostly switched my Chromebook over to Microsoft 365.

+Aaron Meyer Well I already have in a sense as I am using OneDrive over Google Drive to store all of my literary works. It is only a matter of time before I fully switch over.

I am currently using this very serene theme as my previous one was cute and cheerful. I long for the blooming flora and cool weather of spring, this theme suits that desire.

I had been talking about it on Twitter but... Majora's Mask is really fun so far. The opening tutorial was really harrowing but once you understand what is required of you, it is simply engaging. You learn that masks, songs, dungeon items, bottles will persist after starting a cycle over again. Consumables like bombs, Deku nuts, and Rupees will not. Thankfully you can cheekily store Rupees in a bank... Withdrawing at will and build up an impressive amount of wealth.

I love how you have to pick and choose what you do during the 72 hour cycle. Event chains with NPCs that you discover are recorded in the Bomber Journal, so talking with people on each day and catching them at different times records more of their schedule.

Knowing more of their schedule makes it easier to plan what your goals are and allows for better time management. Knowing what you need to do and sticking to accomplishing that goal is of vital importance. Starting NPC events that are required to unlock paths that are needed to progress. I am on my first dungeon and have a plan on beating that today.

+Paulo Navarro There are a lot of convenient changes that make the game a bit easier while still maintaining the pressure. I was reading about it on a few sites.

So this place was suppose to be 30 minutes away from my current location... It is almost 15 minutes at best I will be super early to my appointment to see my new temporary place, dammit. Oh well I can look at tech at Radio Shack for a bit.

Pixel Quest is another great theme that Aire Design has done, all of their work is is quite appealing. This company really has a way of making icons, wallpapers and lockscreens flow beautifully together. Though I wish all the Samsung Apps were themed, this is one glaring omission that needs to be solved in the future.

+John M Just search the Samsung Theme Store for Pixel Quest. It's a paid theme but really cheap.

So recently I got a Steam Controller, and so far I am loving the little guy. However, since I am not on a recent version of Ubuntu (15.10 to be precise) I had a minor issue of not being able to plug and connect the Steam Controller. Thankfully someone had already discovered the reason for the issue and proposed a quick file creation via nano in the terminal. After saving the file and rebooting, the Steam Controller was then able to connect, updated its firmware, and is now ready to use.

This is why I love Ubuntu and Linux in general, a fix to an issue can be found with a little bit of research! As other users pave the path for those who are able to troubleshoot but not do any complex testing to figure out a solution.

I am have assembled my new desk and gotten Ubuntu 14.04.3 installed on my Desktop. This is something to tide me over until I can get the computer from ZaReason, a vendor that doesn't overcharge for pre-installed Linux PCs. With luck I will have a console or two by the time I can purchase a ZaReason configured PC.

So I have been contemplating returning to Ubuntu for a long time now and doing most of my gaming on consoles. Mainly because I prefer Linux over Windows though it gives me access to more games.

I just love having more control over my OS, Linux offers that and potential for eventual growth. Consoles while they may be limited by the lack of hardware expansion, they are a gateway for me to indulge my passion. While I can game on Linux, I will still have a wide selection of games to play while enjoying the OS I enjoy. #Linux #gaming #console

+Che Dean​ I haven't but realistically this will be a media consumption and productivity machine.

It could run games like Don't Starve, Minecraft, or Unreal World with ease but nothing that would be to demanding however.

+Jordan Palmer I like the design of the web version as well, it is finally converted to Material Design. Though with Android I enjoy the fact all the things I need can easily be tapped and accessed. I have adjusted rather quickly.

Story
Tagline
A man who has geeky hobbies!
Introduction
I should use this section to introduce myself and lay down some guidelines. As you can see my name is Ben, my hobbies include:

 1.Gaming: My rig is currently running Windows 8.1. My favorite games/genres include: RPGs, Action, Platformers, Pokemon, Legend of Zelda, Strategy, Survival and Roguelikes. I use emulators to run a lot of older games from: SNES, Sega Genesis, GBC, GBA, and PSX. I recently acquired a Nintendo 3DSXL so my nick is: Wtrick, full name: wetryxtray, friend code: 1521-6170-3188

2. Writing: I casually write as a hobby mostly within the Fantasy Genre, with themes of Homoerotica, Adventure, Horror, and Coming of Age. You will likely never see any of my work because I think it sucks...It is just for fun.

3. Reading: I really love reading books and this is the types of books I read: Nonfiction (Relating to my interests like Science), Fantasy, Science Fiction, Murder Mysteries, Homoerotic Fanfiction, Original Homoerotica Fiction, Yaoi and Bara Manga, with typical Manga thrown in the mix.

4. Anime: I really enjoy anime and have a Crunchyroll Subscription so I can access my favorite Anime either on the go or at home. Some examples of my favorite anime: Psycho Pass, Ergo Proxy, Kill La Kill, Noein, Cowboy Bebop, The Slayers, Wolf's Rain, Texhnolyze.

My interests are: Linux, Technology, Android, Science, Biology, Delicious Food, Hot Dudes, Literature, Culture, Awesome Photos, Chrome OS, etc.


Guidelines-

1. I tend to have my circles nice and organized so that all the content I seek can be found in one handy spot. Keep in mind if you add me I will peruse your content and read your profile before deciding to add you. As I like to group people in appropriate circles. If your feed hasn't been updated in a year or your profile is blank I will likely pass on you. I am looking for active members to engage in jolly conversation, as well as people who have similar interests in the topics that I enjoy.

2. While I appreciate looking amazing pictures of Hot Dudes, Beautiful Scenery, Gaming Screenshots...Please don't spam these things for the amount of excessive notifications will likely cause me to unfollow you. Do however group these photos in appropriate albums so that the notifications are kept low but the content overflowing. An Example: Guys Who Have Butts I want to Touch Album, group all those cute butts in that. 

3. I don't mind varying viewpoints as not everyone will feel the same way about a particular subject. However, don't be a toxic person who insults, belittles, and attacks because of a different view on a matter. I don't mind disagreement because it is okay to disagree with someone. Be rational but true to yourself. This is something that I am working on myself to be honest. I can be an angry person sometimes as some of my followers who know me, have gathered.

Well that is all and if you have read this, jolly good and have a wonderful day!

While their subs are good, they do not deliver to my apartment which is 1.5 miles away from their store. That is actually quite irritating, as I would be ordering their food more often if they would deliver to my apartment.

The SmashChicken Sandwich I had was amazing, and served to me after a short wait. While the Smash fries are tasty, I had gotten a large order and sadly could not finish them. I am going back tonight to try and actual burger.
