A few weeks ago our downstairs heat pump failed. Cause? An earwig fell (or crawled?) into the space between the contacts on the 24 volt relay that send 240 volts AC to the heat pump. When it was zapped, it became stuck to the relay contact until cleaned.
It wasn’t easy for Molly being the only girl in Flight Academy, but getting expelled was even worse. Abandoned by her family when she was young and now tossed from the only home she’s ever known, her future looks bleak.
But then Molly hears that her father’s old starship has turned up halfway across the galaxy. Setting off to retrieve the old craft, she hopes it will hold clues to his disappearance.
My Dad asked me why I carry my 1911 in my house, I looked him dead in the eye and said with the most serious tone, and said “because of the goddamn decipticons!”. He laughed, I laughed, the toaster laughed. I shot the toaster.

To use Microsoft’s Remote Desktop to connect to a Lubuntu 14.04 machine, use xrdp. xrdp uses vnc4server to spin up LXDE sessions on your Lubuntu machine.
To begin, install xrdp:
sudo apt-get install xrdp
If you try connecting to your machine, you’re going to get a grey desktop. xrdp is trying to use the command “startx” to start a window manager. On Lubuntu, this will not work. You need xrdp to use the command “startlxde”.
To make this change, you need to edit /etc/xrdp/startwm.sh:
sudo nano /etc/xrdp/startwm.sh
…and make the following changes:
#!/bin/sh if [ -r /etc/default/locale ]; then . /etc/default/locale export LANG LANGUAGE fi #. /etc/X11/Xsession . /usr/bin/startlxde
Save startwm.sh and try connecting from your Remote Desktop client. Voilà!
