I'm either stupid or arrogant to say that this isn't particularly good. I'll have to re-read it yet again before I can either give a description or a proper opinion.

  1. 1942 - The Myth of Sisyphus

    • First translated into English in 1955.
  2. (other essays noted below) TODO

This may take me quite some time to read through.

A classic work combining classic works.

I bought this because it's considered one of the great works of literature and has survived into common culture. Though I can see why this would have been popular at the time, especially thanks to the forward saying that the brief writing style was rare, I don't yet see why this would appeal to today's person. Perhaps it's just me, but so far I find the writing style rather insulting.

Unabridged:

  1. 1887 - A Study in Scarlet
  2. 1890 - The Sign of the Four
  3. 1892 - The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes
  4. 1893 - The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
  5. 1902 - The Hound of the Baskervilles
  6. 1904 - The Return of Sherlock Holmes
  7. 1908 - The Adventure of Wisteria Lodge
  8. 1908 - The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans

TODO - tested and working, though my most recent Lubuntu experimentation has problems I'm still troubleshooting.

At best, my computer hangs when prompting for a password. I think this is related to the 4.4.14 kernel but have not confirmed this.

These instructions are a lot easier than they seem, and a smart and patient beginner will be able to follow them!

  • These notes were made from instructions from Slackware "current", as of 2016-11-05, and have been tested on Slackware 14.2, and 14.2 32bit.
  • These notes were made on an everyday system with one hard drive which I completely formatted for this purpose.

    • If you are a new user, it is strongly recommended that you remove all hard drive's your using and do this on a spare unused/empty drive.
  • This concept and these notes build a full-disk Slackware installation which also uses LVM. You can safely ignore the entire LVM post and just follow this one.

Two friends go on vacation, with one of them seriously ill and possibly dying, but a new illness progresses.

How do I describe this without spoiling it? I know a lot of people don't like found-footage movies, but this one is quite good as it actually shows everything.

Although having benefited using a time machine, three men travel again to save one of their lives.

A mediocre movie meant for a mediocre audience. Perfectly fine for not thinking too hard. Vulgar humour.

An archaeologist seeks an ancient Egyptian amulet to gain godlike powers.

A great fan film. I wish I had a better source than the 240p on YouTube, but I didn't actually look around at all.
