Re: /dev/null

I have read some of the crap about the "hostile takeover" and I still have no clue.

Arch is moving from Freenode to libera.chat.

Re: Something to celebrate? Do it here!

^^ Of course you know that if those shoes were on clearance, they are probably discontinued and whatever they replaced them with won't fit you. If they had more than one pair, I'd buy another now while you still can. Not really a celebration, more like an event I guess. I euthanized my last cat righ...

Re: EDC, gadgets and gear stuff

Re: show us your iron

I can understand two monitors, but eight? You can't look at more than two at a time, and the rest would seem like just noise to me. But I have a smallish 4x3 monitor and don't even see the need for a bigger wider monitor. I just run everything full screen and switch screens when I want to see someth...

Question -- I see the two-monitor setup, and I get that, but there is someone on the Arch forum trying to set up a single machine with 8 monitors. What kind of setup needs 8 monitors?

Re: neofetch LinuxBBQ

Can't help with the colors, but what do you get when you try this in a terminal? cat /etc/os-release Most utilities use /etc/os-release to determine the running distro. From what I can tell in the incredibly complex neofetch code, it uses this and then does some fancy crap to make what it thinks is ...

Re: TV series

^ Opinions vary widely. If you enjoy Kiefer Sutherland being a constant pissed-off badass and lots of scenes of torture, you will like it. Personally, I hated it and could not watch more than a few episodes. But I am not a series expert and hate most network TV.

Re: Upgrading kernel on accident, lol.

I am not currently running a BBQ spin, but for Debian stable, the most recent previous kernel is still available to boot in the grub "Advanced Options" submenu. If this is not the case for your spin, check your /boot directory -- the old kernel may still be there. If it is, you should be a...

It has absolutely nothing extra installed or running on it right now. Well, maybe tmux counts, but that's not really extra for me on a console system. When you build everything from source on a box this slow you ask yourself "do I really need this?" every time you install something. If hto...
