System upgrades incoming
As a new major version of Linux Mint just got released I'm currently preparing to fresh install tal with the new major version.
Meanwhile I take the opportunity to replace Ubuntu for Debian on petrosian. The reason for this is because Ubuntu is less stable as Debian. Also the pushing of Canonical towards snap-packages is, in my opinion, the wrong direction
Carlsen got revised
My shield TV tube died as a result of the recent bad updates nVidia released. Given Google's push towards Google TV and subsequent cutting off features Android TV offers I didn't feel replacing carlsen with a new Shield TV. Also my guess is that Nvidia will not release a new model anymore because of the troubles Google is causing.
Therefore I decided to buy a silent mini-pc with x86_64 processor capable of running Kodi for TV and RetroArch for gaming.
