After a disaster, a pleasure theme park re-opens with a new population of robots.

Although this one has held up well, it does show its age. It's still spectacularly well-made, and especially well-written.

A fantastic movie from every angle. A very strong mood throughout. Highly recommended.

A simple volume icon for your taskbar's tray.

Works great, no dependencies for me, and does more than what I want.

I got this working, because fbpanel's volume plugin decided to not show up again.

    • Even if set to not do so, clicking will mute: Click once for the popup volume slider, and click again to mute.
    • Fucking thing is compiled with notification enabled, and it can't be turned off. \apt-get remove notification-daemon

An asshole anchorman is sent to a little town to do a fluff story on Groundhog Day, but karma bites him in the ass when the town gets snowed-in.

A fantastic movie not just for the usual things, but for the execution of its idea. Unlike so many movies that have its elements, this one stays grounded and accessible. This movie is well-loved and highly recommended.
