SOS, with a sunset on the way to work today

I was tempted to try Sway the other day but I found Sway ultra… shit last time I tried it about 4-5 months ago.

^ Not sure how long Gnome will last. Nice user interface and all, but it’s tough to justify that memory use if you’re not using MATLAB or something like that.


#205

In fairness to GNOME, that was just after closing FF and I think the latest version lingers in the memory like a bad smell — the bare desktop + terminal just after boot runs in at ~550MiB, IIRC, which isn’t terrible but more than I can stomach.

Especially when I can get a very respectable desktop running (with a DNSSEC authenticated local nameserver, just like in *buntu) with less than a tenth of that:

The bike is Kawasaki’s insane 320bhp H2R, I think I may be having a mid-life crisis or something :roll_eyes:

Great looking scrot & Kawy out there @Head_on_a_Stick


#207

320bhp? Good grief, that’s got pain and a long recovery written all over it :stuck_out_tongue:

Meh, it happens to me all the time. One cannot simply ignore mechaporn :grin:


#208

Yep, not good on the wallet right ! lol


#209

Nope but we can’t take the cash with us, when we go.

Save some and spend it if ya got it. :wink:


#210

Basically that I think, good thinking @Glenn I guess.


#211

Nah, we bikers have an old saying:

The reason being that a 320bhp motorcycle demands respect and so the rider is far more likely to be behaving themselves and paying attention than if they were dicking around on something low-powered and docile.

Lots of power can also be a safety feature because it allows you to outrun other road users who may try to take you out (this has actually happened to me more than once); the argument for this is the same as for guns & condoms:

:smiley:

Gee , my ride has 260 HP & it s fairly quick @ 3300 lbs, I can t imagine a 320 HP on a bike, wonder its weight.


#213

The road version pushes out 238bhp and weighs 238kg with a full tank of fuel, the H2R (the track version in the scrot) is probably around the 220kg range (ish), IMO.

Wholly cow, F1 performances I guess.

Glad you been getting some mileage out of it. I’ve found some bugs in it the theme but it’s pretty dern usable.


#219

I did notice the cuffs of your skinny jeans were suspiciously tight.


#220

You update the theme on bitbucket? Nice dark theme, pretty easy on the eyeballs.

Got tired of Gnome real quick:
