Barry's weekly wrap-up, June 25th
Hot, hot, and did I mention that it is hot? The Summer weather is doing it's thing in my little part of the world of Florida. My Sister has decided to take a vacation next week with plans for home renovation. Guess who will be her renovator? That's right. No rest for the wicked. I'll be spending a lot of time at her house next week.
I've reviewed "The Big Book of Spells" by Judika Illes on my Gnostalgia blog (link). It was excellent and I want to thank the folks at Weiser Books for the free review copy. Check out my review if you are interested in occult.
I've have been using Manjaro for almost eight months at this point. While I am writing this post, it is doing an update. What an outstanding bit of software. An OS is a matter of personal preference, but I really love the Arch-based Linux systems.
Recently, I have put Manjaro on my oldest computer and it is working perfectly. I've also given-up on Windows. From time to time, I have considered returning to Windows for some gaming but, all in all, I'm glad to be a Linux user. Eventually, I want to install Arch Linux the "Arch-way".
I have tweaked the "About", "Review Policy", and "Contact Barry" pages. Nothing too drastic. I've also added a video on the bottom of the page. I'm not sure that I am happy with it in that spot. I guess because it reminds me that I should shoot more videos. Oh well, maybe one day I will build a video set and Vlog.
Svengoolie tonight: "Island of Lost Souls" .... muwahahahahaha (link)
That's all for this week. Have a safe weekend. Hey the 4th of July is almost on us.
