CNN Rehab and revisting twm

[ #1022 ]

Some good friends of mine stongly urged me to stop watching CNN for a spell. Apparently, I'm becoming hysterical. How they isolated the cause of this hysteria to CNN is beyond my feeble powers to discern. Nevertheless, I going to avoid CNN and the Boston Globe for 5 days or so.

The effect of this isolation is that my journal entries will devolve into increasing esoteric topics. Hence, the following.

In this age of increasing complex X desktop environments, I've taking a courageous step back in time by tweaking my .xinitrc and .twmrc files. That's right, my current window manager of choice is the tab window manager. Take a second to try out these settings. (note: hard coded for 1028x768 screen resolution).
