give Lightning Launcher a try.
It is small, lightweight and fast, but has features out the ass. (I'm a poet and didn't know it)
A quick overview of the main features:
Instead of homescreen "pages", you have basically 1 giant desktop that stretches as far as you want in both directions. You ...

Pilot light won't stay lit. It will stay lit as long as I hold the button (I held it for about a minute), but it peters out once I let go. Does this mean the thermocouple is bad? I googled how to check it, and I'm not getting near the mV I think I should. But then I might not be doing it right.

There are only 12-14 days out of the year that you should not schedule events. Really it's only about 48 hours out of the 8760 in a year that your events should never interfere with. It almost has to be done intentionally seeing how often people frick this up....

I shoot mine in so I don't get them all over the street, so I can go over them again and further mulch, and so I don't sling shite at cars. But it seems like everyone that I drive by that's mowing is shooting that shite at my truck. ...

When people say "backslash" as part of a web address. Of the three slashes ('backslash', 'forward slash', and just plain 'slash'), you pick the only wrong one?

Creating an invoice is so slow you might as well write it by hand. There is about a 10 second wait on the computer the file is hosted on, and about a 30 second wait when accessed over the network. It's not hosted on a beast of a machine, but it's no slouch either.
I have done all the usual tricks...

Did we ever find out? Is it:
1. Cut the tape, open flaps and slide PC out of box
2. Cut a PC sized hole in the side of box, then slide PC out
3. Punch a hole in the box, rip box off of PC
4. Harlem Shake the PC out of box

1. Is the tonnage based on a duty cycle, or if it were to run 24 hours straight? In other words, if a 3 ton unit was designed to run for 8 hours total per day, does it do the equivalent cooling of 3 tons of ice in those 8 hours, or only 1 ton since it only ran 1/3rd of the time?
2. Sort of relate...
