Not a Trashcan

A dialog for two actors.

The Bucket?

A bucket is set on the middle of the stage. Science and Poetry stand next to it.

Science
That’s a bucket!
Poetry
No, it’s clearly a trashcan.
Science
The difference should be obvious. A bucket has a handle. A trashcan does not.
Poetry
What about a portable trashcan?
Science
What the fuck is a portable trashcan?
Poetry
You know, for cleaners.
Science
Those are on wheels!
Poetry
They don’t need to be…
Science
Fine, use your bucket as a trashcan. I don’t care.

Steam Error: “invalid depot configuration”

I just had to share this mysterious error message.

A screenshot of a Steam error dialog that says invalid depot configuration.

Simply retrying made it go away.

Launcher with parameters in Xfce

Back in November I decided to try Aard 2 on my laptop. I followed the instructions and it worked. Then I created a launcher with the following command and suddenly it did not.

java -Dslobber.browse=true -jar ~/programs/aard2/aard2-web-0.7.jar ~/programs/aard2/slobs/*.slob

A different strategy, passing a command to Bash, did the trick.

bash -c "java -Dslobber.browse=true -jar ~/programs/aard2/aard2-web-0.7.jar ~/programs/aard2/slobs/*.slob"

Enjoy your fully functional launcher! 😉
