Revamped Mint-X icons

A couple of day ago the Mint-X icon got an update on Linux Mint Maya.
The old ones are above, with the newer incarnation below...
The new icons look rather cool, they are, following the current trend, more squarish than they used to be. The Nautilus icon left behind the brown nautilus for a grey file cabinet, I'm gonna miss the brownish icon :) It wasn't specially pretty, but it was original, and the little brown square was easy to recognize at once.
Also, they tray icons got a bump as well, specially the volume icon when Rhythmbox is running, and the Ethernet connection one.

Past the 5 times mark

It has been quite a while... Be the struggle continues...
Yesterday crossed the "5 times played" notch on all of my Rhythmbox music files.

An old hang stops by

Last night I had another one of those nasty nasty hangs on my T430.
It was the first one since I've jumped up the kernel to 3.9... Needles to say, a total piece of crap.

Twilight of the Timbuk2

The battered, weathered and peeled-off Timbuk2 Messenger bag; 7 years of hauling it form here to there and back again are starting to show up.
On the bright side (if you can call it that way) missing the inner layer has rubbed off the stiffness of the flap or cover;  ITOH the (major) drawback, besides the scruffy looks, its the fact that the bag it is no longer water resistant.
For serious business meetings I'm using a backpack, the peeled looks are definitively out this season.

And yet another Bowden...

Spannungsbogen and all, I finally got it, and I've just finished reading it.
This might be, IIRC, the fourth Bowden book I read, still find his books well written, entertaining and interesting.
Not quite sure what to read now, I have a huge queue waiting on the Kindle.

Winter is not dead yet

After the crazy summer last week, things really cooled down...
On top of that, it has been raining for the last three days straight.
A truly magnificent end of winter we have, I just wish this would go on and on...

It was movie week!

Some movies I've been watching lately...

Star Trek Into Darkness
What a huge disappointment it was...
I did love the other Star Trek flick that Abrams directed, but this one is a tank, and it sinks fast without much fanfare.

This is 40
The best of the bunch... By far the best one of the whole bunch I got to see last week.

War, Inc
Another disappointment, apparently the continuing saga of Martin Q. Blank gun-slinging and murdering adventures, but the current incarnation pretty much fails right from the get go.
Grosse Point Blank was way better.

Soylent Green is Heston!!!!1111!!!

I've just finished watching "Soylent Green" after don't know how many years.
Read the original book about a month ago, so I was sort of forced to see the film.
I still love it as the first time I saw it.

Happy Otterberry Box

Last Tuesday got me a nice, rubbery and bulky (in the good sense, because it protects and offers a hell of a lot of grip) Otterbox Defender for my Blackberry.
I've been using an Otterbox silicone shell on the BB for about six months now, and I was tempted to get one of those hard shells with the belt clip et all for quite some time...
I have to say that I simply love the Defender, feels mighty, mighty sturdy.
Pretty sure this might be the only post on the whole of Blogpost that actually deals with anything related Blackberry in a lot of time...

Summer, who needs Spring?

Being pretty busy lately, but I can't let this crap go by...
We are royally fucked.
34 degrees today, and we haven't even started Spring.
It looks like a long crappy summer around here.

A Subtle Mouse Theme

I love this mouse theme called Basic. There is certainly nothing basic nor goofy about it...
I specially love the set called "basic-goofy-black+" that has the inverted arrows, pointing toward the right.
The whole theme seems nice, and the icons are slightly smaller than the regular one, the one called DMZ-White or Black, which makes it look more elegant to me.
