Lost My Google Account; Recovered My Google Account

I lost my passwords for everything that needs a login last Sunday. I was
reinstalling my operating system and deleted my data partition in the
process. I have a backup for the core files in Dropbox. I also lost my
password for Dropbox.

So if I want a password reset for my Dropbox account, they'll send it to
my emails, right. Except I can't open any of my emails because i lost
all my passwords.

I keep all my passwords in an encrypted file in the data partition and I
keep a synchronized link to Dropbox.

I filled up the Google Account Recovery form page. It asked me some
questions about my account so I can prove or provide proof that I own
that email. I had to create a new email account so they can communicate
with me.

It took 2 days for the Google team to provide a reset link in this email
that I can access.

So thank you Google team, this story ended happily.

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.
