Venture Out

I reinstalled my operating system many times before. I probably didn't
need to if i just knew what to do and if I didn't make mistakes trying
to undo previous mistakes. I reinstall because I'm in to deep into
trying out solutions to my original problem and digging myself out will
just take a lot more time than if I reinstall.

In any case, reinstalling seemed like a cop out for something as elegant
as the Linux operating system. I believe this enough that I dual boot
two linux distros, Ubuntu and Arch. I use Ubuntu because it follows a 6
month development cycle and then use the final version until the next
cycle produces the next version. This means it is stable and secure for
the set time. I dual boot it with Arch because I want to learn more of
linux by using a different distro.

Arch is a rolling distro which means it updates packages more
frequently. It tends to be less stable and prone to bugs. In fact it
feels like users are testing packages all the time. It has excellent
documentation. Users are expected to read a ton and fix their own
problems. I do look forward on learning linux this way.

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.
