  1. Finished reading the comic series "The Sixth Gun". It was a decent series. I started reading with no expectations, except having heard it was a good series, and all my non-existing expectations were toppled towards the end. The series knows how to raise the stakes. Even if you don't like Westerns there is enough supernatural fantasy in there to glance over the setting. Maybe the combination makes the flavor of this series. I'm glad I decided to step a bit outside of my comfort zone.
    Imagine a western with six supernatural guns, one that shoots bullets with the force of a cannon, the second shoots flames of perdition, the third shoots a flesh-rotting disease, the fourth summons the souls of the victims the gun has killed, the fifth gives its bearer the ability to heal any wound (even fatal ones), and the sixth gives the power to see into the past, present, and future.

      • @adiwan I still kind of like the old Space Cadet sorts of experimental keyboards from the 60s and 70s. Fond memories from the library in the 80s and 90s. Man, we do not support our libraries here...

      • @scribus After some googling I see this keyboard for the first time. It's real funky. The oldest keyboard that I have in my household is a Cherry keyboard from the early 90's. I don't use it because I dislike how loud it is. Some people like it but I don't like the clickyness.

            • Be warned upgrading udisks2 to version 2.7.x on Debian. It took me painfully long to realize that it was the culprit of my misery. It provoked that my system was extremely slow on opening my file browser, file dialogs, and anything file system related. It took literally 5 minutes to open a stupid file dialog because of this. # #

                          • @scribus The teaser trailer left a worse impression than the show actually gives, when it comes to the art style. I had big reservations at first but I got quickly used to it. Story-wise and presentation was top notch in my opinion. I already ordered the comic.

                        • On my way to work (and back) I read digital comics on my tablet. I loaded the whole series of "Chew". It's about a cop/agent who can read the past of everything that he chews on (except for beet roots). It's bonkers. Bloody and bonkers.

What do we need to do to rescue your typical office drone from crapshack mediocrity? Does Amiga have a corporate line yet? Or can we convince Microsoft to stop resting on monopoly and actually release a competition worthy product for a change? Where does this slapdash halfass all-change-no-progress system have a weak point?
