New Computer

I have a new desktop computer. It's an Intel i5-4590 Quad Core, Asus Z97-K motherboard Personal Computer. I installed a 16 GB (2x8 Kingston HyperX sticks) RAM. I chose the Crucial 240 GB SSD for storage. Additionally, I purchased a 2 TB Seagate SATA 6 hard drive for media. The casing is black and lighter than the old one I have back in 2008. The casing is paired with a 730 watt power supply.

I recycled the dvd player and card reader from my old rig.

I thought the old 1 TB Seagate hard drive is finished but after reformatting, it passed the test. It's still okay.

I installed fedora 20 on the boot device.  I'm updating the system now.


output of the lsblk -f command for this computer.

I decided to encrypt the whole device after opting for an LVM.


I'm using the Linux kernel 3.16.6 coming from the updates channel in fedora 20.

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.
