Debian is very good indeed, plasma 5 and Gnome 3 are very good too, I can't really choice one of them.

Pwrite(2) has an interesting (manpage documented) bug; it ignores the offset if the file was opened O_APPEND. I won't get that bit of debug time back.

Fundamental wheelie bin design flaw: the bin should open on the same size as the handles. Otherwise, when I park it against a wall, I have to choose between ease of opening and ease of retrieval

So long Nikki Lauder.

Watched S08E06 last night. Talking about it afterwards and the wife kept saying: "We'll I'm glad Salsa is queen. I like that Salsa." My daughter explained that her name is Sansa not Salsa. I just stood up and started dancing to ♫ ♪ "Everybody Salsa" ♬ ♩
