90’s era Staedtler Mars-780 lead holder

Found this old friend while sorting through some old art supplies in my home office last night.

Probably purchased it between late ’96 and ’98 for a drafting course. Staedtler makes their carbon lead for this ranging from 4H to 4B and I forgot how much I loved sketching with this thing.

At closer inspection I rember the time it spent some time sitting in an ink spill in an old ‘Art Box.’

Debian 9 Stretch Desktop

Just a little show and tell from my stable Debian desktop. “Stretch” is installed on my 1TB HD and is the defacto long term storage archive for my system.

The SSD is running Peppermint 8 and my ancient 5400RPMĀ “distro hopping” drive is home to Ubuntu Mate 16.04.2 at the moment.

Tiled windows is a killer feature I’d like to see on Firefox.

For instance while editing this post I can make tweaks and reload the live page. When you work in WordPress all day like I do it’s a very practical feature.
