Short Review Diary ‑ Films, TV Series etc.

A timeline of what I watch (too much really) - mostly contributions to various forum threads June 29 2021 Sex Education, both seasons. I like the choice of characters, some of which I can genuinely identify with, even if they're all a little simplified. It's reality simplified, a story well told, an.....

Short Review Diary ‑ Music and other Audio

What I listen to & want to share online. Nina Hagen in Ekstase Ich bin die Mutter des Punk - na Gott sei Dank! Cardiacs II Cardiacs I wrote about them before... never actually saw them, but have been listening to this album up and down for years. I wish I'd been woke enough back then to see them.....

It has developed from blackbox around 2001, is still actively developed and has a devoted user base. In its early days it must have been the num.....

dwm window manager

I am interested in window managers that can do both tiling and floating layouts. I don't think I'll ever become a tiling purist, but trying out dwm for some longer time has been a good experience.

There And Back Again

Three Hour Hobbit re-edit This is not news anymore, it has been moved from my old site. This article talks about two different projects, both editing all three Hobbit films into a single one.
