A Christmas-hating sociopath works to sabotage it as vengeance against the town that fears him.
An enforcer for the survivors of a ruined world learns that he lives in a utopia that stagnates population.
Although it got slow later on, it's quite nice even with its age.
Two strangers press a button and are whisked away to a capitalist dystopia.
It's alternately boring and stupid.
The world has been selectively-nuked somehow, an EMP is actually a virus or something, and people are being mind controlled somehow I think, and a man is an exception somehow. I don't get it.
It has a strange unevenness to it, where it's not light enough to be bubblegum and not serious enough to be.. serious. It does keep on going, with no pause to let you think about how stupid or strange things out.
TODO - add my notes, and scripts
I loved it, and used it regularly for sane scripting when trapped on Windows, via bash, as well as for git itself.
Not related to Windows Subsystem for Linux.
I've exported my dotfile management scripting.
A detailed explanation is hosted with my scripting for it: https://github.com/spiralofhope/shell-random/tree/master/live/dotfiles
Yeah, I haven't updated this in a while. I'll revisit this concept eventually.
I haven't really decided what I should focus on this July, August, September. I'll keep this post updated.
Continued from 2013 second-quarter immersion.
2014-08-04 - I've been using an offline downloading solution for some time, but haven't had the time to write up a proper HOWTO.
Archives are normally stored in
/var/cache/apt/archives/, but I wanted to know how to download an archive directly to a specified directory.
So I've been farting around after a long break from doing much of anything on Linux. I was prompted by my new hard drive arriving.
I spent some time migrating data from five separate hard drives and a stack of DVDs. One of my next goals was to get backups working, so that I can back up from my SSD to this new drive.
I have an old backup script, but I decided that I could spend this afternoon screwing around with it to optimize it a little.
Using the wonderful
mcedit which comes with Midnight Commander, I hacked away. Linux being what it is, there was a tangled horror of stuff I needed to try to remember, look up through my notes, get answers to and/or figure out.
