Binge Call Saul

So, binge watching "Better Call Saul" during some late, late night sessions these past week or so.
This was the first series I started to watch when got Netflix, but somehow I've lost interest on it; maybe I was expecting sort of a new "Breaking Bad", I don't know...
For the first time in  many, many years, if I keep watching this at this rate, I'll be forced to watch an episode a week, the regular "old school plain vanilla TV series way", since that's how Netflix is releasing the latest episodes of the series around here.

Elbow Grease Chrome

Installed Chrome.
Yep, it all started more than a month ago.
Got fed up with the problems with Firefox, Chromium and Netflix, so, in the end, installed Chrome, were things have to work A Ok.
Followed the instructions (once again) given here: How to install Google Chrome in Linux Mint 18 and had to delete the file "/etc/apt/sources.list.d/chrome.list" after the installation, see the second comment.

I'm starting the program like this:

/usr/bin/google-chrome-stable --disk-cache-dir=/tmp/cache-chrome %U

The current Linux Mint desktop

Yes!
Another screen shot post!
Once again, shamelessly pushing my own theme, this time with the lighter version of Linux Mint's Mint-Y, but borderless (or is it border-less?), appropriately called Mint-Y-Borderless.

Nullflix Is Shitting Me

Don't get this...
It seems like Netflix doesn't work Just Like That in Firefox On Linux...
Or rather, don't know why, but it looks like its working only on one lappie (X140e) on all the others, it goes down on flames miserably...
I thought that maybe it is 64 bits related, but none of the other 64 bits lappies I have around seem to be working...
Fucking strange, specially since I did all the testing on the T60p which is freaking 32 bits...

Movies During The Weekend

Sort of a slow weekend, when it comes to movies... A lot of physical work this time...

  • King Cobra
Sort of cool one, of course: Not that there's anything wrong with that, right?
The GF picked this one up!
It was cold!
I was swimming!
Enough with the Seinfeld quotes...

  • Hidden Figures
It was nice.
Perhaps a bit too Disneyesque, if you know what I mean.
The actor that plays John Glenn has to be ashamed, everybody knows Ed Harris is and was the only John Glenn on the silver screen.

A Darker Chromium

Well, I've been using a bit of dark themes lately and one thing I've noticed is that Firefox -by default- sucks when it comes to handle dark themes.... Solution?
Try Chromium!
Specially Chromium with the Arc dark chrome theme.
Only thing that seems a bit unnerving is that the selected tab is the actually the darkest one, sometimes I might find a bit lost at to what tab I should click to.
