A lot of the things I’m doing lately is a repeat of things I already did on Manjaro. But now that it is dead I need to redo on Linux Mint…the Energizer distro that just keeps going and going. Installed python3-venv and the mimesis package on Linux Mint so I can use my createCustomer program. […]
Been also looking at Static Site Generators as a solution – 11ty in particular. It uses node.js. Node.js is something I could see myself getting into. The idea of a Static Site Generator, is interesting to me. So much bloat in WordPress. I found there are many choices. This caused me to look into a […]
Applied new grub update. So far screen resolution is my desired 1900×1080 resolution. Didn’t fix Manjaro kernel panic.
Well do you…punk? Mint is showing another Grub2 update. Will it fix any of my issues? Will it revive Manjaro from the dead? Of course I have documented how to get Mint working, at least if it’s the same problem. However I might not find it using WordPress’s search. Of course I’m kidding because I […]
It looks like I’ve been using WordPress for about a year! So I really should update my text logfile starting there. I have occasionally updated it, but it was hit & miss. Perhaps I should consider writing my own static site creator for my Log file, like I did for my judoplaces website. It uses […]
In this post I said “I was able to work around Mint’s resolution problem by adding GRUB_GFXMODE=1600×1200 in /etc/default/grub”. That wasn’t completely true. The command I actually used was “GRUB_GFXMODE=1920×1080,1600×1200”, specifying two resolutions, because I read it would fallback to the resolution on the right if unsuccessful. I didn’t mention it, because it selected 1600×1200. […]
Too much OS crap! I want to get back to using/learning stuff on my OS…not fixing the OS. In addition in this same time span, too much time looking for a simple WordPress replacement. I’ve been completely side tracked from my Udemy Pandas course. The last thing I did for my enjoyment was 9 days […]
I really don’t like this 4:3 aspect ratio in Linux Mint. I want’s me 16:9 back. Why can it install that way but it’s not even an option later? You type videoinfo at the grub console and it shows you what it will allow and 1900×1080 resolution isn’t there . So like I said it […]
Unbelievable! I just this very day commented that Linux Mint never screwed up Grub. Which was true. Then I applied some Mint updates that included a Grub update and now Grub is screwed up. However a slight defense of Mint, today it was reported that researchers discovered a serious vulnerability called BootHole, in grub, that […]
Although Grav is interesting, there’s no search. For the blog entries it’s a menu dropdown…not good when I already have 400-500 posts in WordPress.
