Been reading _The Hoax_ by Clifford Irving - the author once wrote a fake autobiography about Howard Hughes, the reclusive billionaire. It's a bizarre tale, and so far very interesting.

Yazoo - Only You

Chaos Chaos - Do You Feel It?

No logic to these, just a couple that came up in mpd while I was working.

I have seen and tried a couple, finished a few pages. It's nice but I am overwhelmed by the feeling that we have run out of shit to do so now we're just colouring in.

Journey springs to mind, the game struck a real chord in me and it's in part due to the soundtrack.

Usage is like most tiling WMs, a little odd if you've never used one, but I quickly found myself addicted. Basically, when you open a window it opens full screen. Open a second, and it divides the screen exactly in half. You can then use keyboard shortcuts to move them around and resize them.

It's easy enough to set up and i3 is well documented. I have a minimal install so I can't speak for more complex setups.

I came from xmonad which I found really hard to configure... This is all plain text and lots of what I wanted comes out the box anyway.

Check out their official site and the Arch wiki - there's info on shortcuts and setup there.

If you have any questions fire away.

I'm in a similar boat, coupled with a dearth of excuses to write this in pen and ink.

I could not agree more, he also embraces the meaninglessness of life and uses it as motivation to continue.

I came up with the see-through toaster years before some knob really made it.

I don't think they are selling well so it's good I didn't sink lots of time and money into it.

They only want to whip out the Quadratank when the shit really hits the fan. One day, you'll see...

The comparison to When Doves Cry is inspired.
