TWM Window Manager

twm is historical. It dates back to 1987, and is still maintained. I wanted to try it out and see what I can do with it, if I can customize it to my needs, both in functionality and looks. Screenshot Gallery click me! Installation It's in most Linux distros' repos. If it isn't, the source is availab.....

An incomplete timeline of what I read - mostly contributions to various forum threads Aug 29 2020 Not technically reading, this is an audiobook: Scaramouche by Raphael Sabatini (BTW I heartily recommend this podcast) It takes place during the French Revolution.

Short Review Diary ‑ Music and other Audio

A timeline of what I listen to - mostly contributions to various forum threads Aug 28 2020 J.K.Ihalainen / Sándor Vály - Laiminlyödyn maailman todistus - Remix It's not much if you don't understand the words.

I cannot find the first version anymore; the blog is gone. It's possible that the movie's torrent is still .....

An Open Letter To LinuxQuestions
