Various boozies that I acquired this holiday season. From Right to Left: Anteria and Rubinov, brandies from Serbia; Jelen, the national beer of Serbia; Driussi Grappa, a blueberry brandy(not actually a true grappa) from the Friuli region of Italy; McCarthy's Oregon single malt (I've had it before, but since it's a gift, I get to have it again); Authentic Whisky Alsace (AWA) single malt aged in Reisling barrels (Reisling barrels = mind blown - it's really good); and lastly a single malt and a rye from the Kinzig Brennerei distillery in Germany (included only for completeness, they're both... well, terrible). But not a bad take, overall, along with a German beer Advent calendar (24 half-liter bottles) I'm still working through.

The feature I was looking forward to the most in Plasma 5.8 was single meta key activation for the menu, and by extension, the application dashboard widget. It worked well for about 24 hrs... then stopped.

If anyone has a fix that is trivial (e.g. modifying a config file) and does not involve installing a third party package, compiling code, or changing my DE, I might be interested.

First rattlesnake removal of the season (the pic is after relocation and release- yes we did this at night). We bucketed and relocated a two-foot diamondback to a spot of scrub a few miles away from the house.

Tonight's operation was a little extra exciting because Crowley the one-eyed cat really wanted to tangle with the snake. We had to get him away before we could focus on capture and containment.

We've had a pretty good response so far, and this will be the last time I post about it in this space (I'll ask for a bit of help, but I won't be pushy). If you could help out even a little with this unexpected expense for one of our beloved four-legged family members, I would appreciate it. Thank you.
Hullo-- My name is Emryse Geye, and I have a wonderful dog named Langley. (That's her on the right next to my cat.) She is a rescue dog that was picked up in Mexico, and adopted by my family in Arizona in November 2014. We have tried to give her the best possible life we could. Last Thursday, J...

I currently have an interesting WiFi issue with my primary laptop, a Dell Latitude e6400 wit the the Intel 5300 WiFi chip. Whenever I connect or disconnect from AC power, my wifi connection briefly drops and then reconnects. I'm running Antergos, and everything's updated. It's not irritating, but it is a curiosity...

If you're able, please consider helping out the folks at Reglue. They do noble work, and this has been a really challenging year for them.
 
This isn't usually my way of doing this but we've got an opportunity to pick up some good small form factor desktops for relatively nothing. But in this case, even the "relatively" isn't available to us. Again, pardon my shameless use but this important to us, as we are down to our last 5 computers.

I have the opportunity to pick up 11 HP small form factor DC7900s at 35.00 a piece. The guy bought them at auction for us and didn't bother to mention it until this morning. I need to raise 385.00 so I can go get them.

I am extremely uncomfortable doing this in this manner, but with our resources being lower than they have been in a decade, I need to get this done and I'm coming to my friends for help. Should you be able to give us a hand our pp address is ken att reglue dott orgg.
And thank you. Thank you for helping us do what we do.

Actually, I use Linux. I don't have those problems with my computer.
Introduction
Just another devastatingly handsome geek.

If you're wondering about which G+ circles or communities to get for me as a gift, I like (in no particular order):
  • Linux
  • Whisk(e)y
  • Comic Books
  • Science and Technology
  • Science Fiction
  • Good Beer
  • Good Coffee
  • Good Food
As for posting, I tend to "listen" more than I "speak" because it's often better to lurk and be thought an idiot, than to post and remove all doubt.  However, when I do post or comment, I try to be helpful, constructive, and polite.  I do this because I like civility and harmony, and because it's just the right thing to do.

That said, I am not completely above the occasional silly share or some bone-dry sarcasm.  After all, sometimes the jokes just write themselves.
