The passing of FiftyOneFifty

It is with deep sadness we announce that another of our hosts and friends Donald Grier, known to us as FiftyOneFifty, has passed away.

FiftyOneFifty's frat brother Randy Hall has written an lovely piece. The team at Linuxlugcast are preparing our own tribute if you want to contribute an audio file you can email Honkeymagoo or join the show.

Our thoughts go out to his friends and family at this difficult time.

Part of the series: Apt Spelunking

"Apt spelunking" is a silly term I made up for the act of searching through your package manager, App Store, Code Repo, etc with vague terms, and trying out random applications therein.
A public series started by Windigo.

It's another exciting episode of Apt Spelunking! The fourth installation, which covers the following packages:

dunst - Lightweight notification daemon

Dunst is a lightweight, customizeable desktop notification daemon. Similar to Ubuntu's notify-osd, it displays passive notifications with very minimal resources. It has customizeable keystrokes, and its colors can be configured as well.

i3 - Lightweight tiling window manager

i3 is my window manager of choice; tiling, extremely customizeable, and absurdly light. With fantastic support for multiple monitors, and vim keybindings, it eventually finds its way onto every machine I use.

uqm - Ur-Quan Masters

Derived from Star Control II, Ur-Quan Masters is a fantastic retro game about spaceships and aliens. Earth has been seized, and is isolated from the rest of the galaxy. Luckily, you happen to have yourself a ship built with ancient mystic technology and whatnot.

Fun, funny, and dangerously addictive; make sure to stay away from this game if you have things to do.

Wasting shows again

Well if you must insist on wasting shows, then you get a series !

Also are you going to go back and rename the other shows ?
