I want that Boba Fett and Stormtrooper. They're great.
 
Check out some images of amazing-looking Stormtrooper, Boba Fett, and Darth Vader action figures as designed by Square Enix.

#GNOME has astonished me again with how useless the devs have managed to make it. This Is Linux! Not kindergarten!

This time I just realized there's no way to right-click and Edit a desktop file in #Nautilus. Come on. Even Windows Explorer has more options than this.

you can probably hit properties and for that mime-type you can set it to gedit or gvim.  So that it opens it by default.

I have a useful tip for anyone who loses their mouse pointer on the desktop like I do.

I have a laptop with a high DPI screen and I use an external 4K monitor with it. The mouse pointer is very small and easy to lose. I needed a way to find it quickly.

Enter xdotool! This handy command-line tool lets you script mouse and keyboard events. I am using it to move the mouse pointer to a known position. The center of the screen, or close enough. It isn't the real center because it finds the center based on all the active displays.

So I went into the Gnome Settings, Keyboard, Shortcuts, Custom Shortcuts and made a new one called Center Mouse. I set the command to:
    xdotool mousemove --polar 0 0

Then hit Apply. Then set the shortcut keys. It took me a while to figure this out, but I needed to HOLD DOWN the mouse button on the event, and then press the shortcut I wanted to use. Control-Shift-Z in this case.

After I did that I can press Control-Shift-Z and the mouse jumps to where I can easily find it.

No more looking all around trying to find it!

Meter is the base unit of centimeter, millimeter, and kilometer. You all seem happy to use those.

So why do you have problems with using the full range of SI prefixes? Huh? Why!?

It is NOT 1,000 kilometers. That's a megameter. It is NOT 1,000,000 kilometers. THAT is a GIGAMETER.

Perfectly good SI prefixes. Use them.

It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.
It is by the beans of Java the thoughts acquire speed,
The hands acquire shaking,
The shaking becomes a warning.
It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion.

Sounds as though there could be a problem with the power inverter!

Darth Vader. Darth Sidious.

There is a pattern there. And I just thought of a new Darth name.

Darth Conceivable.

I guess I'm a pangolin. I'd never heard of one before. So that's new.

Gnome Boxes is a cheesy copy of virt-manager with less features and bigger buttons.

Why was it written and why is it some big feature of Fedora? It gets a big feature box on the Fedora Workstation page.

I tried it once. I wasn't impressed.

Boxes should give you a ready to use VM with fewer clicks, while virt-manager allows users to tweak configuration better. Virt-manager itself should not be used for more than 15-20 virtual machines. Choose the one that fits the best for you.

This is a late review. Some time in 2012 I brought my 2005 WRX STI in for a 125,000 mile service. The mechanics told me it needed replacement boots on the front CV joints. I had that double-checked and it turns out they were liars. The boots were fine. I had the rest of the work done at Flatirons Subaru in Boulder. They have never done me wrong. And the boots were still in good shape when I did a trade-in for a new STI in Boulder. I am going to be giving this AutoNation another shot with my 2013 Subaru. Maybe they have improved.

I come here with friends about once a month and love it every time. Sure, sometimes they have a problem and you get dry bread sticks or slow service. But in my experience it is almost always a good night.

I love the Efrain burrito. The green chili is hot and tasty. On the downside, the wait to get a table is awful and I don't think they have enough wait staff.
