Content consumed: 2019 Edition

I tend to log most of the stuff that I read, play, and watch. So heres this years list!

Although not everything in this list came out this year, there has still been a lot of great content created this year. Some that I'd like to highlight are:

  • [TV Series] Chernobyl An absolute fantastic mini series which gives us a glimpse into what happened in the Chernobyl disaster.
  • [TV Series/Book Series] The Last Kingdom I love both the books and the TV series so I'm happy to see both get new content this year.
  • [Video Game] World of Warcraft Classic I'm having a lot of fun with Kat replaying one of my favourite games.
  • [TV Series] The Morning Show Despite its early criticism I really enjoyed this series.
  • [TV Series] Gentleman Jack Another small series from HBO/BBC.
  • [TV Series] Stranger Things This latest season has been on par with the first which was excellent.
  • [FIlm] Knives Out This may stand out as it came out pretty recently, but I really enjoyed in non the less.
  • [TV Series] Derry Girls An excellent comedy that continues to make me laugh.

My first impressions after installing Manjaro #linux

I recently switched my media server from Linux Mint to Manjaro (KDE) and after two days here are my first impressions.

  • This Operating System is full of surprises! I love that I can snap my windows to either side of the screen the same way Windows does (Take a hint Apple!).
  • There's a significant amount of customisation available in the settings, which I'm still running through.
  • The UI is great and easy to customise. I have a semi Mac-like setup running in under 15 mins with no additonal packages needed.
  • My favourite mini feature so far is dragging directories between two windows shows a little pop-up with options to "Move/Copy". I think this is a really nice touch and something I have not seen in a Desktop OS before. Dolphin seems like a great file manager in general.

That's all for now.
