This will be slightly geeky. Not a lot, just a bit, in the middle. And never again. Ever. I just want to show you some picture. Click for bigger image.
First, Lady has summarised the story I linked to in my last post. Her summary is as a comment there, and it is a very lucid one. 18 points and a complaint. Read that, at least.
Also, here is a screenshot of my desktop. Notice the transparent terminal windows, as though I am typing on air. That is a desktop environment commonly-used on Linux. It is called XFCE.
My background is a mural of You-Know-Who, which I modified in the GIMP to make it easier on the eyes. Shot taken in Brazil, I think. Got off the net.
My taskbar is up there. At the bottom, a quick panel, with the clock. There are four terminal sessions open: one is a text-only web-browser, surfing this blog (upper right). The other has GHC running interactive (lower right). They are all transparent. The one in the middle is me editing some text. (In Vim! Now you know my side!) The bottom-left one is an IRC session on #haskell. Many PDFs to read, there. I'm lazy!
That's how bland my days are. I need to get a life! At least I have a desktop I am proud to show off. I had the picture of some cute chic there, before, but I changed PCs, and it went with the old one. :´o(
Also, I saw a drunken, staggering lady, today in the morning. People, my heart cried. I had never seen anything as desperately desperate. It will take me a long time to forget it. Two days before, I had seen one who was dirty and all, from a fall in the mud, no shoes, dirty hair, and it seemed she was just recovering from a black-out, but I wasn't as shocked as I was, today.
I don't know if I am a sub-conscious misogynist, but I think it is more-excusable for guys. We love kicks. Even dangerous kicks like those. But a lady ... there are so many dangers lurking out there for a chic who has affected decision-making or, Jah forbid, who has lost consciousness! Them
