Yep, same stuff.
But peanut butter! It's the original butter!* And it's the best butter!**




*Not a fact.
**Factual when milk butter is excluded.

I buy a pair of shoes once every four or five years. Hate it with a passion.

It was rather amusing when the boss was trying to buy corks for the timber crew, I tried to explain that virtually no one makes a 13EEE, but nooooooo.

Unless it's called a-little-hazelnut-and-loads-of-chocolate butter then it doesn't fit in the spectrum.

Also, I bought an external monitor a while ago to use with my laptop and Raspberry Pi. The monitor's colors are fucking hideous, washed out, and bluish. I will have to adjust the RGB values to make it bearable. I had to do something similar with my Asus monitor on the desktop and it turned out beautifully rich and vibrant. I love the results for my Asus. Should be a cinch to do it with the new one, right?
But there are no on-monitor settings to adjust the colors with any fine level of control, just brightness and pre-selected profiles that are all shit. It came with a CD that gives you fine-grained control. But this CD only runs under Windows, and my laptop and RasPi run Linux.
I tried to make it run under WINE. This gave me some very insightful and language-inappropriate lessons on WINE's limitations.
I looked up a site that has ICC color profiles for specific monitors. They had my model! Now how do I load a color profile in Linux?
This is where I am now stuck. I had a few leads but they didn't pan out. I should document this process of failure and (eventual?) success so that others can learn from my mistake.

uh

yeah, that's what you need.

You can load it to your video card with xcalib.
You'll probably want to put the command to do that in something that loads at startup.

also you can make your own custom profiles with LPROF

I tried xcalib but it told me I was an idiot so I punched its stupid face.
Seriously though the documentation for that program is lacking. Even on the Arch wiki.

I wear a 4E. 3E in a 13 sounds kind of skinny.

Swiss heritage, I basically have built in snow shoes. They don't look particularly oddly shaped though, just fucking big.

I had forgotten just how irritating it is to write a CV that is both complete, and short enough to not make the reader's eyes bleed.

Now I want to take a picture of my feet. Because I like my feet. Most of the time.

But I have to change my toe polish first.

That makes me sad because I really like it and it's been a while.

Okay, we can trade, in the spirit of being GGG. For everyone of your toes you put in my mouth, I can put one of my penises in yours. Deal?
