Short Review Diary - Books and other Reading

An incomplete timeline of what I read - mostly contributions to various forum threads July 8 2020 Kim Gordon - Girl in a Band This was gifted to me. It's a better read than I thought it would be. Perceptive description of relations, but in an easy, direct language. A typical life story, it starts w...

TWM Window Manager

twm is historical. It dates back to 1987, and is still being developed (although I think "maintained" would be more appropriate). I simply 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 Installation It's in ...

The Fluxbox Windowmanager

This article is part of a series. I still managed to find the old Fluxbox web page (or here) from ~2002: How nice is that! What fascinates me about Fluxbox is its history. It has developed from blackbox around 2001, is still actively developed and has a devoted user base. In its early days it must ...

Just recently I noticed - again - how good most of them are. Differen...

An Open Letter To LinuxQuestions

...or maybe to myself. Introduction Two things first: 1. "This is a Linux Forum" - yes, it is. But wherever people come together to discuss whatever, the sociological, emotional and psychological aspects, and aspects of communication and language, are just as important as the (technical) topics. I h...

Baahubali

Baahubali (both parts) I have seen so many films, mostly Hollywood or American productions. One starts to tire of certain structures that seem to be repeating over and over, of getting force-fed the American (or in any case Western with a capital W) way of life (be it critically or appraisingly), an...
