How To Subscribe To Waldo’s Web

Waldo’s Web uses RSS feeds to publish blog articles and website activity updates.

Really Simple Syndication, or RSS, is a web feed that allows users and applications to access updates to the website in a standardized, computer-readable format. RSS feeds allow you to keep track of many different websites in a single news aggregator, called an RSS reader. The RSS reader will automatically check the RSS feed for new content, allowing the list to be automatically passed from website to website or from website to user. This passing of content is called web syndication.

Subscribing to Waldo’s Web removes the need for you to manually check the website for new content. Instead, your RSS reader constantly monitors the site and informs you of any blog posts or updates.

Waldo’s Web Is Back Online

Phew, I spend all of yesterday and half of today, but Waldo’s Web is a lot more responsive and seems to be fully back online.

I am now done with the amateur radio lectures I provided my local community this past month, so I finally had the time to update the server. It had been sluggish and unresponsive at times. I hope it’s good for years to come.

Now, it’s time to focus on mail servers…

I also hope this post will automatically go to my Twitter feed. I no longer use Twitter, but I’d like to be able to keep my followers informed.

Have a good day! 😀

Arch Linux org.plasma.private.kicker Module Not Installed

I updated my desktop PC yesterday, (# pacman -Syu) only to discover nothing would launch after login. I use KDE 5 on Arch Linux. Whenever I clicked the ‘K’ application menu, I received a message indicating that the org.plasma.private.kicker module was not installed.

What the heck is that?

I worked around it for a day (yesterday, 2017-01-23) by holding the shift key and typing the first letter of the application I wanted to run. [SHIFT+F] to bring up the run command and then finishing with ‘irefox’ would get my web browser running.

That got me through the day yesterday, but today, I decided to take a few minutes and try to resolve the issue. Since I didn’t know what the problem was, I simply decided to reinstall xorg-service and the plasma group.

# pacman -S xorg-server plasma

Did the trick, by reinstalling the packages from my cache. I’m now a happy desktop GUI using camper. 😀
