Don't know if you have ever been in flood stage water before, but it's different. The power of it denies your ability to move across the water.  I'm a very strong swimmer, and felt damn near helpless.

I have, and I swear this is a true story. I was living in Buck's county, PA and commuted to my job via bicycle. It was a ten mile ride, down the steep hill, across the river and through the park to the street, done.

One night the river flooded, during winter, and I got caught trying to get back across the park to get home. I was drunk, I rolled up my pants, slung my bike over my shoulder and walked across the platform bridge, which was now 3 feet underwater. A tree was blocking the bridge, I caught my foot and my bike got sucked into the culvert. I then proceeded to jump into the raging, 10 foot deep and still uprising water and try and pull my bike out from the upriver side of the bridge/culverts. All that water was surging into a few culverts, less than a meter around in size each. I could have been sucked in, got stuck and drowned so easily. I gave up and walked home, a buddy and me retrieved the bike the next day, well downstream.

Your scenario with the culvert has killed sooo many people. Glad you made it out alive:)

Re: February 2021 Screenshots

My two distributions installed on a ThinkPad x40(date: 12/21/2006):

bl-lithium and nakeDeb

lightweight enough to be able to surf (without video), listen to music and email. Suitable for vacations (if that is possible again)  hmm

Changed I
- the onboard conky's
- set up a ~/.Xmodmap for the missing keyboard characters
- installed and set up thinkfan, because I have to control the annoying fan
- uninstalled Tor-Browser in nakeDeb, this computing power is too big
- both have the Firefox-esr with Flagfox, uBlock-Origin, uMatrix and SkipRedirect
- the music plays with audacious (radiostream with moc i haven't managed so far)
- tlp, preinstalled in nakeDeb, I can't use because of "dead" battery

Working is just "fluid" with both distri's.   smile

Imgur requires a phone number to make an account. So I'm trying postimages.

Using xfce for WM. The lake in the picture currently has just over 2 metres (6-7 feet) of ice on it. It warmed up to -26°C today.

I have had an imgur account since 2008 and never needed a phone number unless that changed.

You mean thickness? Nice, I love walking on it. But only where I can clearly see that others walked before.
Around here, we have around -10°C these days, enough to make the Baltic Sea freeze over along the shore after a while. And plenty of snow, glittering in the sun. It's nice to have a real winter again for a change, last year was decidedly "global warmish".

Re: February 2021 Screenshots

Wanted to make a light theme.  First did one that just barely changed the stark whites, and added a blue tinge, but didn't really like it.

This one is better I think.  I wanted to get rid of all the inverse (white) printing I could in the gtk theme itself.  All of the light themes just seem so stark.

So, in the image is Thunar at top, which reads from the gtk-3.0, and Pcmanfm below that, which reads from the gtk-2.0 (these can be fun to match up:)

And wanted a useable Geany theme to match. I made the main window for Geany just a tad lighter, and the colors need a little work still. Personally think I got lucky with my dark geany theme:) These are not so easy to theme it seems.

Also made the Openbox theme to match.  Made a dark one with gradients in the menu and titlebar, but like the flat better for Openbox!

I don't think this looks like the old #! theme at all.
I like it, like a modernised version of very old gray ui themes. I generally like light, but not too light themes.

How are you making all this? Manually in a text editor? yikes

Yep:)

When I started. I didn't even know there was a difference between what themes read which gtk file.  I kept trying to make changes that wouldn't work. (My base install had no gtk3.0 theming). I finally got frustrated enough to see how Bunsenlabs handles the theming for Thunar and found "Beam". Saw it was based from Greybird and started tinkering.

I've since figured out quite a bit through keeping notes and such.  If making changes directly to the theme, the options are endless. For instance, there are gradient options for damn near everything, and they are not being used.

So, I made up my own recipe.  Still a work in progress, but gives a good idea of where most things are based on common terms like THUNAR MAIN WINDOW instead of whatever the tech name of the window is.

Using this as a guide, and Greybird as the template, you can change many many specific options if your theme is Greybird based, or just make your own theme. 

I'm sure there are still items to be adjusted,(though none yet) but it works for me.  If I find a program that has theming issues, I just go fix it:)

I've since learned more about all of this, but my method is working well, and gives total control.

Here is the recipe I made up.

####### This is based off of the current Greybird theme, and could change in the future.
#### These are my notes, and as such, could be off here and there.  Ya never know.
### This is a reference for my notes but you can certainly make a nice theme following these items in order.
## A lot of items here are specific.  Need to change a single highlight color? Scroll bar Color?
# Some items may be redundant (listed as separate item later in the file) 
# Most items have a number after the item indicating how many there are to change. (61)
# References to JWM are important, as JWM handles things slightly different, 
# and you will have issues without adjusting these items as such.
# This only leaves a billion options not yet changed, so not everything may be groovy yet.
# Make your changes in Geany using the replace function. Test every change!

######## This is a very cool inspector.
## To get gtk inspector
# Install: 
libgtk-3-dev
###THEN
gsettings set org.gtk.Settings.Debug enable-inspector-keybinding true
Then: 
- control shift+d on object
or open directly with:
GTK_DEBUG=interactive <application>


### HERE ARE THE HINTS.
### USE GEANY'S REPLACE FUNCTION TO CHANGE ALL COLORS IN A GROUP TO WHATEVER YOU WISH.


### text widgets and the like base background color */   MAIN THUNAR WINDOW AND MOUSEPAD BACKGROUND
4486 Main thunar -thunderbird background window From #fcfcfc - (61)

4482 and 4510 -  and thunar headerbar background from #cecece - (151)

### Sidebar Background Color */  THUNAR SIDEBAR (Should match 4486)
3789 Changes whole sidebar background in thunar. #dae0e6 - (4?)

### Base stated background color */  TOP BAR to Thunar, Mousepad. (this needs inspection), may be just gradient hit.
23 & 26 (specific). #cecece - (2)

### Sidebar Background image */ (Should match 4489)  THUNARS SIDEBAR HIGHLIGHTED BAR BACKGROUND
3798 X 4 only (specific) from #dae0e6 - Should match 4489 (offbyone)

### TEXT IN SCREENSHOT TRIGGER BUTTON (WHITE) Careful here not to do the gradients, 
## print options, scrollbar options, or any of the "hovers" on first pass.

288
297
702
782
793
820
944

############# Feeling Lucky? No, really...##########################

1589 border color - was black rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.7)   (50) HUGE

########################################################################

Please remember that these are my notes, and may not be 100% accurate.

For those that want to make their own theme, to keep things simple, I would grab my Gray theme to adjust, or the Dark theme, as the basics are already set. (You can change literally everything if you want.) Don't forget to adjust the gtk2.0 to match when done making changes!
