This is my site. Cool, huh? If you don't like it, well, I guess it lives up to its name for you, then.

I have found a new window manager, and it brings me joy. Its name is OpenBox. I had been a long time BlackBox user, but always kinda wanted to get rid of the slit. OpenBox has no slit. I had tried fluxbox, but it just didn't appeal to me, you know? Probably the configuration in Debian was more pain than I was willing to deal with at the time.

Anyway, I have finally figured out how to use virtual desktops, or at least in a useful way. Most of my fiddling around with linux has been on laptops (installed on 3 different ones to date) and I therefore never had a scroll button. Well, at work it was decided to take the laptop mentioned below and use it as a floater for the entire office (oh, the humanity!) and buy me a desktop instead.
