Movies During The Weekend

I haven't made one of these in quite some a while...
We had a couple of really active weekends, so not that many movies with the GF.

  • Secret Life On An International Assassin
It took the GF and me a couple of weeks to go thru this one...
Is not only kinda stupid, we are really beat this time of the year.

  • House Of Cards
Yeah! At last, we returned to our series as couple!
We left it dormant for quite some time.

  • War Dogs
Kinda cool, but not that much.

  • We Are Twisted Fucking Sister!
Mighty good, funny and entertaining.
I was convinced this was going to be a disaster, but it turned out mighty good.

Say Hello To 2003

So today I got to play a bit with the old (really old) Sony Vaio PCG FRV37...
Wanted to test a bit the whole "Ubuntu Minimal install thing" (once again and just for old time sakes...) and make me a nice, slow, over burned and noisy Openbox lappie.
Well, yeah, no problem at all during the install, pretty much stock setup for nowadays (Encrypted LVM & encrypted $HOME) all things honky dory.
That is until the installation finished and the WiFi driver nightmare started...

Back to 2004 or so stuff...
The dreaded ath5k refused to give an stable connection, not even a ping to my GW, not to mention 8.8.8.8... Drop packets all around, 70% to simply begin with...
And no matter what options I gave to the /etc/modprobe.d/ath5k.conf file and how many times I'd modprobed -r the module back and forth...
The same laptop with Linux Mint 17 works A Ok, will keep shitting with this, just because, since the hardware is way, way more than prehistoric...
Funny thing, once you enable the WiFi Card during the install, it works flawlessly...

Stupid crap that drives nut...

...  every time I re-install and configure a box to my likings...

  • Firefox favicons
Makes me go bananas... There used to be a Firefox extension that simply combed your Bookmarks, and dloaded every single favicon, as well as testing your Bookmarks for broken links...
But the developer got pissed off with Firefox and removed that extension.

  • Date column on Evolution
This one seems stupid enough, but nevertheless, it really fucks my workflow up, specially on tiny screens like on the X140e...
The Date column on Evolution is HUGE! It steals a huge amount of screen real estate just because, and AFAIK, there is no way of setting this on a global way, you have to change the width on every single directory you have.
