    Missed an obvious mistake above:



    [ pgrep -x mc > /dev/null ] || /usr/bin/mc

    If I understood your requirements correctly, you can replace all of the above with just:

    Why not? His immediate reply to you on that thread seems to be already indicative of a certain level of hostility. Not saying he is. Just noting however it can't be ruled out. Could also be he was...

    Maybe not as much as you think.
    That kid and his argumentation in the whole thread reveals his ignorance of even the most basic design and coding principles. I'd take it more personally from a peer...

    I used i3status up until very recently so I'm not entirely sure. But I'm very confident the label field wasn't initially decoratable with markup. Pango only came later.

    In any case, it was a bad...

    When open source does not win

    You can get from Open Source the same type of frustrating experience you get from commercial software. Sometimes even more.

    geek@02 makes a valid point regardless. Donald Trump is indeed just the veil of human politics somewhat uncovered. He's more of the same in a different package and label. He is a tremendous...

    You want the politically correct opinion that currently has the movie rating 93% on Rotten Tomatoes?
    Or the opinion of someone that actually gives a damn about movies?
    I can deliver both. Your pick.

    Among my top 10 movies of all time. There's so much to hate about it, but it's hard to find a movie so atmospheric as Excalibur.

    I don't know what's more offensive. If the price, or Tim Cook treating everyone as an idiot.

    Anyways, I'm sure it will be a smashing success story of reinvention. Like the watch was.

    A similar artist to Dagul is Eluvium. These are ambient and experimental artists. Their "genre" is defined by the pair of these two genres. And the most influential being Ambience.

    For the same reason the Kardashians are popular.

    1. Someone says they are popular.
    2. They show up a lot even when they shouldn't.
