Linux, Python, devops, etc

Now, I could just compile Gnome Do and package it as a TCZ extension... but then I've got a fancy tool that requires the entire Gnome stack when I'm using no other part of Gnome - My desktop environment is currently LXDE.

The initial download is only 11 MB, which is enough to get you into an X session with a window manager. Getting a basic basic set up running on a USB key was easy enough following the instructions on the wiki.
