The blog is still alive   James - Saturday, August 19, 2017, 5:55 pm

Just realized it's been almost a year since I've written anything here. I haven't even checked it out in a long while. Regardless, I thought I'd give it a kick and see if all my RSS feeds and such are still working. I'm pretty sure that no one reads this. Maybe time to rewrite the blogging software. Again.

PCmanFM #3   James - Sunday, November 13, 2016, 11:15 am

I am still having issues with pcmanfm seems to have lost its mind. It could not find network shares. It seems to be working...again. Here's my solution:

sudo apt-get install fusesmb smbnetfs smbclient system-config-samba cifs-utils

Again, it didn't seem to take affect until I rebooted the system.
