One of the better articles I've seen on #polyamory.

It’s not always easy to define exactly what polyamory is, but it’s pretty easy to say what it isn’t. Poly isn’t cheating. It isn’t lying. It isn’t a disregard for the agreements you share with the people you love. And it certainly isn’t positioning monogamous people as more blindly traditional or less emotionally evolved than you.
At 19, Emer O’Toole had a boyfriend and a girlfriend – but no word for the arrangement. Now, like a growing number of people, she does: polyamory. She and her friends reveal what life is like with more than one lover

I prob'ly should have done this a looooong time ago...but I need some help to get all the way to my goal.

Then for the more technically minded, creating your own personal "userchrome.css" (google for that) can get rid of the rest of the wasted space. You do need to experiment with the options and personalise it for the way that you've customised your toolbars -- e.g.: my own userchrome.css contains this:

.toolbarbutton-1 { padding:1px 0px !important; }
toolbar { max-height: 32px !important; margin-top: -3px !important; }
#TabsToolbar { margin-top: -5px !important; }
#toolbar-menubar { margin-top: -5px !important; }

My menu bar and tabs are now blessedly small again.  Sadly, though, despite changing that second line to "toolbar { max-height: 28px !important; margin-top: -7px !important; }", the navigation toolbar is still significantly taller than the tabs and the menu bar, still has visible padding at its top, and the buttons are falling over its bottom edge.  This weirds me out, because I also have a couple of buttons placed on the menu bar, but those don't seem to suffer from this problem at all.

I think the solution most likely lies in that .toolbarbutton-1 line, but I don't speak CSS, and I'm failing to figure out how to get rid of all the padding there both completely and syntactically correctly.  :-/

Help?

I tell people all the time - if you're serious about learning Linux you need to become very comfortable with the command line interface (or CLI). I know what you're saying now - "Dave, if you're such a fan of the command line, why did you create a crontab GUI?" Good point.

Well, sometimes it helps to see how the sausage is made in the first place...  ;>

#linux #crontab
crontab gui to ensure proper crontab syntax and the correct format that is compatible with multiple Linux distributions

If the American people would be opposed to a trade agreement if they saw it, then that agreement should not become the law of the United States.
For more than two years now, giant corporations have had an enormous amount of access to see parts of the TPP trade agreement. But the doors stayed locked for the regular people whose jobs are on the line.

This gives some very good advice for people wanting to downsize, or simply do with less.

Of course as its still mobile and looks on target to drive 8000 miles this year living a in 40 year old gas guzzling (modern buses get approx 4-6 mpg so I doubt it gets any where near that that) oil dripping ecological holocaust on wheels may be minimalist but is hardly eco friendly.
it seems like the author is striving to gain accolades for his lifestyle while making his family live like nomads and throwing 2000 gallons worth of carbon pollution into the atmosphere.
Of course that's my opinion and like .....

“A Hoppy Brown Ale You’ll Drool Over”  LOL!  Anybody in Chicagoland?
Chicago’s Arcade Brewery has partnered with cartoonist Mike Norton to create Battlepug, a hoppy brown ale inspired by his Eisner Award-winning webcomic. The beer, which boasts a label drawn by Norton and the slogan “A Hoppy Brown Ale You’ll Drool Over,” will debut next week, just in time for the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo. …

I freely admit to having a very soft spot in my heart for emacs — it is, after all, the first second* fullscreen editor I ever used — but this made me giggle anyway:

"Emacs is a perfectly good operating system that still needs a text editor."

*No, you've never heard of the first, unless you used the Pr1me at William & Mary in the mid-'80s.  RIP SANE.

It's an interesting approach that makes sense to me.

Wow.  I was already opposed to fast-tracking the TPP just on general principles due to all the secrecy, but I had not realized just what a point of no return it would be for years and years to come!
 
I'm a fan of the President way more often than not, but I think his plan is way off base. Considering we're still living in the land that was hammered by NAFTA and the capital flight it enabled, I'm extremely leery of anyone asking me to say "trust me" to a "trade deal in a poke."
