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 ?
