upon popular demand I have now put the code of my little project called 'PijamaClock' on github. It's just a basic Python script, really nothing fancy and it can be improved alot still, but I hope others may find it fun to play around with too.
Any comments, suggestions and (even better) Pull requests are more than welcome:

I had heard so much good comments on Digital Ocean, that I wanted to try it out myself. But my first impressions have been less than satisfactory: being stuck for more than two days on an initial account verification is not my idea of 'Get started in seconds' ...

Fun new game: count the number of 'We are rushing to avoid fines' emails in your inbox right now. I'm currently at 5. Who does better?

@DestinationLinux @BigDaddyLinux Hey guys: have you ever tried getting an interview with Clem of LinuxMint fame? would love to hear his views on upcoming releases now base LTS is out.

every year i am astonished and grateful for this beautiful healthy wad of Stuff that comes out of our compost; over the year, the four of us feed it our kitchen scraps, our broken eggshells, offerings of leaves and pine needles, tea bags, failed cooking experiments. once the last frost retreats, we pull out buckets and buckets of living dirt to spread over the earth once more, fill with seeds and hopes, and eat what comes from it.

don't forget to pay your respects to this land and sky.

so... lets say you have an 8x8 grid of programmable RGB color leds; How would one go about to visually represent a chess game? Just you know...wondering is all, not related at all to or or anything like that...

@omnipotens No apology necessary. No-one's ever died from a few days without social media. Thanks as always for your sterling work on this instance.

So in my quest to find the best 'rock-solid LTS debian-based KDE distro' I have now added the following distros to my test installs: Mageia Linux (RPM-based) and Manjaro, a rolling release arch-based distro... Does this mean I am listening too much to the guys @DestinationLinux hopping around every week or sumtin? ???

trying out KDE before the big 2018 system upgrade, deciding which distro 'll be my default for the next few years: I want to tell the installer to put GRUB into the root partition instead of the MBR, but I'm not seeing an option for that in the installer. Any experts here that could help me out with that?

just for my own reference: is there anybody here that hates Skype more than I do? If so, please do elaborate in the greatest detail possible.
