Just Type: Chrome's Address Bar

I don't know why you like Chrome, the browser Google gave us but a lot of people like it. If I tell you back in 2008 what features I want to see in a browser, you'd probably give me your reasons not to do that feature. A lot of people praised the way Chrome updates. Now that most browsers do the same, people are letting their annoyance known for the constant updating.

You can't satisfy all the people all the time.

My favorite feature in Chrome or Chromium (if you prefer the open source browser) is the super address bar. I think they call it the omnibar. I like it that I can navigate to the address bar with a keyboard shortcut (CTRL+L). I like it that I can just start typing a character and it tries to guess what I want. Is it your bookmarks or your history? It even offers me a site search on the site before it loads it. How cool is that?



Type "imd-" and this image shows up. Punch the tab key and you go into search mode in the imdb site. This browser knows the web better than any browser I know.

It isn't the fast paced development, although that's cool. It isn't the web store that sold me although that is very welcome.

Chrome tells you to "hold my hand" and like instantly you're going.

America Must Evolve Fast Or Die

This was a music festival concert venue in Las Vegas, Nevada. A shooter in the 32nd floor of a nearby hotel across the general area opened fire then shot himself. He killed 59 people in what reports call the biggest mass shooting in modern American history to date.
America must learn from the lessons of previous mass shootings otherwise this tragedy will happen again. Reasonable animals evolve when their lives and the life of the pack or group are threatened. They change how they face the problem and not just move on. They don't dismiss reality. They recognize the problem and listen to reason. For those who say nothing can be done, you're wrong. There is something America can do. It is not premature to talk about gun control. This is the time to talk about it.

GnuCash In Arch Linux

I updated a number of packages today and Gnucash won't start. I immediately went to the Archlinux website to see what's happening. I can't seem to find the package in the community repo. There's a thread in AUR on how to compile Gnucash by hand no AUR helpers.

But I tried to compile goffice and webkit2, needed packages for Gnucash-git. No. It doesn't work for me.

Funny but I'm now using my Android Tablet with Gnucash app to record transactions. This is working. We need to have the stable GnuCash back. This is a stop gap on my part. Transactions don't stop when computers stop. Please don't make me go back to paper.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Poster

The Last Jedi is coming this December 2017. I can't wait. My guess is we can watch it later in the Christmas season or even later than the New Year 2018. The Filipino Film Festival season usually starts the 15th December up to January 7th. Only Filipino films are shown in theaters. Unless there's a special run, we would see it much later.
