Gnome 3.12 is due out later this month, but if you want to try it out now on Fedora you can use R Hughes’ COPR repository for a early peek. I’m currently using it and it’s pretty stable. I especially like the new updates to Gnome’s Epiphany browser.
For far too long I’ve settled with Twitter’s website when I was using my desktop computer. This is because the universal social programs for linux (e.g. Gwibber and Pidgin) always looked sloppy and cluttered to me. I put effort into maintaining a certain chi on my desktop and I wanted something that matched my theme. Eventually, I opted for Tweet Deck, which had more features and a clean look but it required me to use the Chrome web browser and to have Chrome open in order to access Twitter. I prefer to use the open-source Firefox browser. Read more…
These quick tweaks will give Firefox a nice facelift, making it look completely native to your GNOME 3 desktop. These tweaks are said to also work if you’re using GNOME 3’s ‘Global Dark Theme’ option found in Gnome Tweak, but I haven’t tested that claim.
This not only makes Firefox a little easier on the eyes, but it also reclaims some priceless real estate from Firefox’s toolbar and status bar. Many of the GUI design features that have kept me clinging onto Chrome have been relieved with these tweaks, allowing me to finally leave the botnet-infested Chrome for a real open-source browser.

A Libertarian Case for Net Neutrality
As a libertarian you may be uneasy with the concept of net neutrality. Like me, you feel inexplicably drawn to this neutrality but feel guilty for it. You think to yourself, “I’m a free-market libertarian, by God! Regulation is wrong! Why is my instinct betraying me?” It’s because we don’t live in perfect world. We live in an economy that is far from free and is infested with government regulations and corporate manipulation. The internet service industry is a picturesque example of this.
Searching for Mcgee and Me, the Classic Kids Movies
Something this Christmas season reminded me of this kid’s movie series I always watched when I was young called McGee and Me. My parents and grandma got me all the videos and I watched them a lot. Now I wanted to rewatch the old movies again in the worst way. But there was a problem: my old videos were long gone and I had absolutely no idea where they went.
In an apparent inspiration by McGee and Me’s moral themes, I detoured from my normal move of heading straight to The Pirate Bay. I tried Focus on the Family and Tyndale House Publishers’ websites and couldn’t find anything on the series. This was a pretty popular series so I don’t understand why it just faded into the darkness like this, but I couldn’t find anywhere to buy them on DVD. Read more…
