Star Trek 50th Anniversary

Aside

Star Trek

As I said in earlier post, Star Trek is one of my favorite shows of all time. It influenced the way I live my life. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

The first version of Star Trek I saw as a kid was actually Star Trek: The Animated Series. I thought it was awesome as a kid. Eventually I found Star Trek: The Original Series and it became one of my favorite shows growing up. When the movies came, and I saw Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan I was hooked!๐Ÿ˜€

from my “Today is The 46th Anniversary of Star Trek” post.

When I was a kid I loved Star Trek, and Spock was a great influence on me growing up. I never wanted to be Kirk or Bones. They didnโ€™t have theย mental skill and control that Spock had. I was always attracted to characters that could carry out things by using mind over matter. This is the same reason I like Batman more than Superman or other superpower heroes.

from my “Leonard Nimoy 1931-2015” post.

Happy birthday Star Trek โ— I can’t way for the next 50 years! ๐Ÿ˜€

LXLE and SeaMonkey

seamonkey-banner LXLE to switch to SeaMonkey as a default browser in their distros! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

The decision to switch to SeaMonkey as the default web browser for LXLE is something not taken lightly.

The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to develop an all-in-one internet application suite. Such a software suite was previously made popular by Netscape and Mozilla, and the SeaMonkey project continues to develop and deliver high-quality updates to this concept. Containing a web browser, email & newsgroup client with a feed reader, HTML editor, IRC chat and an Address Book. SeaMonkey also has longevity under its belt plus a very close overall relationship with Mozilla. It uses much of the same source code which powers Firefox and Thunderbird while legal backing is provided by the Mozilla Foundation.

The LXLE Desktop

It’s nice to see another Linux distro choosing SeaMonkey as their default browser! ๐Ÿ˜Ž Specially, in this crazy era of stripped-down and bland browsers. ๐Ÿ™„

I think Linux can benefit greatly fromย suites because Linux doesn’t have a universal way to install or uninstall software across all the their distros. There is always a challenge when I want to find a specific app and install or compile it in my Puppy Linux machine. It just not as smooth as Mac OS or Windows. :/

Other cool power-users suites or browsers with rich features that I’m playing with are:

Just to name a few. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Vivaldi

Vivaldi Browser

It’s finally here! โ— Jon von Tetzchner one of the founders of Opera madeย the long-awaited Opera killer. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ He made a browser that will pick up where Opera-Presto left off. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

The browser Vivaldi, shares the same name as the community Vivaldi.net. A place where most ex-My Opera members spend time as their new home. ๐Ÿ˜‰

This browser is pretty slick! Vivaldi it’s build with the WebKit-based Chromium instead of their own original layout-engine. I guess due to the popularity of Google Chrome, they want to maximize on compatibility. Still, it would have been nice for them to have their own engine. :/ Or, why not use Gecko instead? โ“

Vivaldi browser

The integrated mail will be there in future builds. :mrgreen: I hope it has a smooth way to import from M2, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, etc…

Tabs change color to the colors of the website or favicon you are viewing. There is also Tab-Staking from the old Opera, Notes, and many other Opera-Presto goodies! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Here is a list of links with reviews and information about the Vivaldi browser:

I have been very happy using SeaMonkey as my main browser, and I don’t have plans to switch to Vivaldi any time soon. But now I have a second browser option from SeaMonkey. ๐Ÿ˜€

If you miss the old Opera, you should definitely try Vivaldi. ๐Ÿ™‚

Add-on Converter for SeaMonkey

Add-on Converterย is a fantastic useful tool that enable the conversion of Firefox and Thunderbird extensions to SeaMonkey. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Add-on Converter for SeaMonkeyFinally! :grin: I can make my browser compatible with almost every extension Firefox or Thunderbird have. ๐Ÿ˜Ž Now I have more extensions to play in my extension list! :mrgreen: Plus, pretty much I can make SeaMonkey behave like, or better than Presto-Opera. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ

I don’t miss Opera anymore. ๐Ÿ‘ฟ

I wish I had stayed all alone with Netscape โžก Mozilla Suite โžก SeaMonkey as the main default browser. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But at least it was always installed in all my computers as a second choice to Opera. ๐Ÿ™‚

ZeitGeist – Documentaries

ZeitGeistI have been watching these pretty cool documentaries for the past weeks. ๐Ÿ™‚

They might be controversial to some, but I think they are fantastic in the way they were produced. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

I don’t necessary agree with everything on it, but I find some things really close to the way I view things. ๐Ÿ˜ˆ It is pretty shocking to know that there are some people out there with the same screwed sense of thinking that I have! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’ll definitely recommend anyone interested in watching these types of gloom and doom political/environmental/anti-establishment, documentaries, to check them out. But keep things in perspective, don’t take everything as truth without question it first. ๐Ÿ˜

 

2007: Zeitgeist: The Movie

I played around linking the videos from different sources! ๐Ÿ˜‰ But you can also find these series on their official website.

8-bit Xmas Music

Here’s some cool and free holiday music in 8-bits for the geek in us all! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

I find it cool hearing the sounds of my favorite old video-game consoles. The Atari 2600, Nintendo (NES), Commodore 64, etc., even my old still working Mac โ— , were the sounds of childhood. :mrgreen: I never thought that you can make music like this with that. ๐Ÿ˜ฏ
