Peanut - an abstract in alabaster with a touch of color. I'm switching my art from abstract painting to stone. This is my first "experimental" piece.

I said I would share the results of my trigger job.... I bought the GHOST - TRIGGER CONNECTOR FOR GLOCK™ 42/43 from Brownells: http://www.brownells.com/handgun-parts/trigger-group-parts/connector-parts/g42-43-edge-drop-in-trigger-connector-sku100017381-78352-164062.aspx and had my local gunsmith install it. He also made sure everything was polished correctly. It didn't really lighten up the pull much, but it did shorten it. That long first part of the trigger pull is gone and it's a noticeably shorter pull. It feels a less of a pull, but the last part really isn't much less. The first part is gone so I don't have that 2 stage feel to the trigger. The result is a slightly lighter trigger pull that is significantly shorter. This makes much smoother overall pull and noticeably more accurate in overall firing. Highly recommended!

Does any one know of extended takedown levers for the 42? I've seen them for the double stack Glocks, but not the single stack ones.

I just got my new semi-custom pocket holster for my Glock 42 with Streamlight TRL-6 light/laser. It's from Nelson Holsters in North Carolina. He had never made a holster for a pistol using the TRL-6, so I shipped him mine and he made this very nice leather holster. It fits my G42 perfectly. It also fits my pocket perfectly and looks like I'm carrying just a wallet. The quality is top notch and looks and feels like it should last a lifetime. I'm VERY happy with it! BTW, the price is comparable to or less than most other semi-custom holsters I would find.

I've been using Netrunner Rolling for years and love it. However, the Netrunner owner has decided not to support it any more. In theory it's Manjaro with some Netrunner stuff on top. Therefore it should continue on just updating the Manjaro stuff.

However, the last several updates I have done have given me errors that stop the upgrade. It's mostly finding duplicates of files and stopping. I have been deleting the duplicates as root and the update works. However, this is a disturbing trend that at some point may not be fixable.

I'd like to know what why this is happening and if there is anything I can do to stabilize it. An alternative would be get rid of all the Netrunner stuff and be just pure Manjaro. (Ideally without starting from a clean install.) Any ideas?

Does anyone have any recommendations for a small light or laser that can fit in front of the trigger guard on a Glock 42?

Since I did post about the great deal on Sam's Club, I did buy one myself. It's actually my first Kershaw. I'm usually a Spyderco guy, but this "Speedsafe" it pretty cool. It just takes a light flick to open that blade. Of course, it takes a bit more than normal pressure to close it, but that's not the point. OK, I probably don't really need that extra speed, but it is nice to have. I've also never had a tanto blade as I'm really not a knife fighting kind of guy. We'll see how that works in everyday use. So far, I'm happy.

I don't usually do this, but I just bought a Kershaw Tanto Blur at Sam's Club for a really great price. It is the last day for the sale, but if you ever wanted one this may be time:

I just made a Chromebook. Kind of... I just downloaded and installed the free version of Neverware Cloudready on an old Gateway NV53A laptop. I had KaOS Linux on it, which is pretty small and fast to begin with. We use this pretty much as a backup computer for my Linux desktop and my wife's Chromebook. The beauty is that it now looks and works just like her Chromebook and that's important for a non-expert like her. As a backup, I just need to get to my web stuff and to be able to download my Linux distro if my desktop needs to be rebuilt. This work just fine. Even though it isn't an approved computer, everything seems to be working just perfectly and it's noticeably faster than the Chromebook. I'm very happy with it.
