Sharknado 5: Earth 0

Yes, that's right. Expect to see the fifth in the series of Sharknado movies in the Summer of 2017. In this version, a global-wide tornado threatens to destroy mankind. The Syfy channel has plans for 2 more Sharknado movies if the numbers from Sharknado 5 hold up.

Just between you and me, I think 5 was three too many...

Manjaro and the Cronograph Station BLK cronoconky

If you enjoy "Don't Call Me Lenny!" on Youtube, you've probably seen the Cronograph Station conky in the background of his videos. For those of you who are not familiar with conkys, they are a system monitoring script that is both functional and sometimes looks awesome. Here is the Cronconky on my desktop.

"Don't Call Me Lenny" takes you through step-by-step in setting up this conky for both Ubuntu and Arch systems. Since I use Manjaro, I used the Arch instructions and had no problems. After watching the CPU and Ram consumption, I may need to consider a more "lightweight" OS for this old Vista-era computer. This poor old beast is over 10 years-old.

Star Trek: Discovery delayed ... again

Well for those of you who expected to see Star Trek Discovery this month as hyped, you've probably realized that the show isn't on. Why you might ask? Delayed. May? Nope. Now, word has come down that there is an indefinite delay.
Put that into your photon torpedo and shoot it.
