Happy Easter and I Think It's My Birthday

 Hi Reese

The renovations of the bathroom and the kitchen continues through the
holy week. M Roger is making sure the wall plaster is smooth. He finished
putting the black marble tiles on the tabletop. He's going to put the doors
to the bathroom tomorrow. It's Easter, no work. Oh by the way, it's my 
birthday too, I think. 

I woke up with the Salubong passing the house. I could hear the band 
playing a march. The siren is wailing. When I got downstairs mom is washing
clothes and Imee is preparing pasta for the spaghetti. 

I've been tinkering with my phone's lock screen security. There was a point
when I couldn't open the screen anymore. I had to ask for help with a 'forgotten
password' issue. They asked for my google authentication credentials then google
sends me a code through sms. My sms app is locked too. I can't get to the code. 

The smartphone is a remarkable technology. What if a machine can handle millions 
of calculations per second and store pictures, documents and everything else that
can be reduced to zeros and ones, share information with other machines, and last 
but not the least, be portable enough so you can put it in your pocket. What's more
remarkable is I get to live long enough to see it for real.

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.
