meh

What does "meh" mean?

re: meh

Usually it means like: "I don't know" or "I don't care" or "whatever" or "<shrugs>" ...something like that. In this case it probably means: I'm not impressed or it don't matter or it's okay.

re: Theme

I like it. Maybe a tad to simplistic/clean - but it loads fast. On a slightly different topic - who's Jose Rangel and why does he get the footer on every page?

re: jose

Cuz he made the penguin logo and header background for me that I've been using for ..how many years? He was a great graphic artist, made lots of wallpapers and stuff and posted them on kde-look.org, but then he just disappeared one day. poof...

you're always logged in, you could try one of the other themes listed on your account settings page if this one is too simplistic for your tastes. The one I had up this morning was kinda okay too, but I really like the clean look of this one for default I think.

re: new theme

The new theme should be called "whitefungus" since it seems to grow on ya.

Only "thing" that really bugs me is the difference between a "new link" and a "visited link".

For me (and my middle aged eyes) the difference between dark blue and black is very hard to tell apart.

re: visited links

Is that any better for ya Skip?

re: links

Yes - thanks for the quick theme mod work.

//unless you're just yanking my chain and didn't make any changes - but want me to THINK you made changes - so now I'm confused am I really seeing a change or should I just think I'm seeing a change. - it's budget prep month here so my minds firmly mired in bean counting muck.

re: links

lolol naw, I lightened the links and darkened the visited so they'd contrast against each other little more.

re: visited

Can you tell the difference now? Big Grin

I couldn't wait for you to come back to see it. Tongue

But I'll fudge around with em see if I can come up with something.

Your theme?

If anyone is missing a theme they used to use now, please let me know and I'll try to get it reinstalled. Thanks.

Linux 4.11-rc8

So originally I was just planning on releasing the final 4.11 today, but while we didn't have a *lot* of changes the last week, we had a couple of really annoying ones, so I'm doing another rc release instead. I did get fixes for the issues that popped up, so I could have released 4.11 as-is, but it just doesn't feel right. It's not like another week of letting this release mature will really hurt. The most noticeable of the issues is that we've quirked off some NVMe power management that apparently causes problems on some machines. It's not entirely clear what caused the issue (it wasn't just limited to some NVMe hardware, but also particular platforms), but let's test it. Read more Also: Linux 4.11 delayed for a week by NVMe glitches and 'oops fixes' Linux 4.11 Pushed Back: 4.11-rc8 Released

Themes for Ubuntu

  • Flattiance is a Flat Fork of Ubuntu’s Ambiance Theme
    Flattiance is pitched as a “semi-flat fork” of the Ubuntu Ambiance theme. You know, the one that ships out of the box and by default. On the whole Flattiance keeps to the same color palette, with dark browns and orange accents, but it ditches the gradient in app headers in favour of a solid block.
