I can tell ya, some days aren’t as bad as most. I mean, ok, Trump is still US prez and the USA wants to kill its own internet … and all other countries in the world because PROFIT! And all that shitty stuff.
😦 But, as I said, some days are good. Everything seems to fall in place, some good things are happening simultaneously, the sun is shining, the van is drivable, breakfast was lekker … so a good day to do a bit of computer maintenance. And now it becomes really good. Like for realsies!
You might remember I was just at Gigabyte and they kinda fixed my mobo. So, hmmm, hmm, I had an idea. Crazy, stupid or genius, doesn’t matter. It was an idea. Went like this:
Me thinking, hey, if the mobo is healed from stupidity maybe I could try to … very slowly, very carefully … delete that stupid Linux Mint and install my beloved Manjaro Linux again.
First a quick check of Manjaro’s homepage and all the available downloads. Whoohoo!
After months of neglecting, the Mate maintainer just published a brand new ISO. Whoa! Even a higher version number than most other spins. Heyyy, I’m the 50th fraggle to download the new version, WCGW*, right?
And indeed …
Just some small stuff to add/swap: Getting rid of the primitive Transmisson and replacing it with the hardened war horse Qbittorrent is done in a matter of seconds, putting my email addy into Thunderbird and populating Pale Moon with my extensive collection of bookmarks goes even faster. Now adding some add-ons (cookie destroyer, VPN, un-tracker, adblocker n shit) and I’m more or less done. As you can see I’m blogging already on the new system. And it feels soooo good, man. =^.^= Only thing left to do is finding the stupid Linux Gurujin and asking her another hole in the stomach. And then Ahoy SL!
Aaaand what can’t be missed under no circumstances, because we love to laugh danger in its menacing face:
Disclaimer: Fraggles, don’t feel bad about me boasting with my much much nicer Linux. Well, you could and you should feel a bit bad … but not too bad. Okay? I’m actually a yuge fan of Linux Mint and recommend it wholeheartedly. Not just for bloddy n00bs and toddlers but for everybody! It’s really a well-rounded software product. An environment to feel comfy in. I’m using it myself in various guises. So you shouldn’t feel ashamed to run Minty, quite contrary: It’s good for your computer and for you, and a reason to be proud of your fancy system!
*WCGW = What Could Go Wrong?
