HOLY SHIT JOB PHONE INTERVIEW

I feel negative about my chances, but I am a self-critical pessimist with a perfectionist streak. I reviewed the interview with someone less critical, and they seem to think I did alright.

Add Ubuntu power options to the Openbox menu

I have no idea how I managed six fucking years going to the console in order to do this. Edit (as root), /etc/sudoers/ and add the following three lines:

YOUR_USERNAME ALL = NOPASSWD: /sbin/poweroff
YOUR_USERNAME ALL = NOPASSWD: /sbin/reboot
YOUR_USERNAME ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/sbin/pm-suspend

Then call a given command as normal with sudo reboot/poweroff/pm-suspend. Like, fuck, I feel dumb. Grumble. Add these entries to $HOME/.config/openbox/menu.xml:

<separator/>
<item label="Suspend">
    <action name="Execute">
        <execute>sudo pm-suspend</execute>
    </action>
</item>
<item label="Restart">
    <action name="Execute">
        <execute>sudo reboot</execute>
    </action>
</item>
<item label="Poweroff">
    <action name="Execute">
        <execute>sudo poweroff</execute>
    </action>
</item>
<item label="Exit">
    <action name="Exit"/>
</item>

Neighborhood tuxedos

They’ve proven to be remarkably friendly cats: both have let me pick them up and sit them in my lap, which is good because they have filthy ears that need to be cleaned. I am not a crazy cat lady. Shut up.
