Winter Dies (Unfortunately)


Winter, well, that thing that we had around here that should be winter it is about to end.
Of course, the MF leaves the room with an effing torrid day.
I'm afraid this summer is gonna suck big time.

154K and counting!

And, yes, you're right, another thousand up.
Listening to way too much music...
Right now I'm at an average of 72 tracks a day.

A Little Help with The Power (Button)

So, once again I had to replace (after doing a field repair on the power button) the keyboard of my beloved Thinkpad T420 with an old one I had around that it used to be originally from the X220.
This whole thing of swapping and swapping keyboards is due to the damn flapping 9 key, that I got on a keyboard (doh!) as a nice trade with some spare parts a while back.
The power button was a bit flaky, so I added a piece of tape to act as a kind of shin in order for the power button to actually reach and push the toggle to turn on/ off the lappie.
So far the thing seems to be working A Ok.

The current Linux Mint desktop


My Linux Mint setup these days...
This screenshot comes from the Opti, but I pretty much have the same thing on the other boxes as well.
The theme is the now mythic Adapta, while the icons are the famous Numix Circle, all flat and material like, long past are the days of the days of the fuzzy, out of focus, eco-friendly wallpapers.

Un-Google Now on The Moto G4 Plus

So finally [!!!!] I was able to fix the Google Now crap on my Moto G4 Plus.
I was getting really, really mad at the mighty cell phone, the new panel, that appeared out of nowhere and that I was unable to remove drove me crazy, as I hate having more than one desktop on my phone.

This is what I did to delete the effing unwanted panel:

1- Go to 'Settings' on your phone > Apps.
2- Select the Google App > tap on the top right corner > Uninstall updates.

Removed updates for the Google App, and voila, the damn panel vanished, also a couple of icons from the cell's desktop, but aside from that, everything A Ok, didn't loose any data nor installed program.
After that, updated that damn Google App once again, rebooted the cell, added the missing icons on the mighty Moto G4 Plus desktop again, and things, at least so far, are kosher and running fine.

Followed (in part) the instructions from this Google Products Forum post:
How do I *TURN OFF* Google Now?
