  • In response to the interviewer’s question about how we can live with “a sense of the individual’s impotence to affect events, to improve or even influence our own welfare, let alone that of society,” Fuller offers his magnificent metaphor:


    Something hit me very hard once, thinking about what one little man could do. Think of the Queen Elizabeth — the whole ship goes by and then comes the rudder. And there’s a tiny thing at the edge of the rudder called a trim tab. It’s a miniature rudder. Just moving the little trim tab builds a low pressure that pulls the rudder around. Takes almost no effort at all. So I said that the little individual can be a trim tab. Society thinks it’s going right by you, that it’s left you altogether. But if you’re doing dynamic things mentally, the fact is that you can just put your foot out like that and the whole big ship of state is going to go.

  • rather than getting on the other side and trying to push the bow of the ship around. And you build that low pressure by getting rid of a little nonsense, getting rid of things that don’t work and aren’t true until you start to get that trim-tab motion.

modifying skin

cp -r /usr/share/kodi/addons/skin.confluence /storage/.kodi/addons/skin.confluence.bigfont

nano /storage/.kodi/addons/skin.confluence.bigfont720p/Font.xml

  • you have to do it via ssh.
    cp -r /usr/share/xbmc/addons/skin.confluence /storage/.xbmc/addons/skin.confluence.edit
    then you need to edit the addon ID so it looks different then the original confluence, do this my opening the addon.xml and adjusting the value.
    nano /storage/.xbmc/addons/skin.confluence.edit/addon.xml
    you will see something like this
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <addon   id="skin.confluence"   version="2.1.0"   name="Confluence"
    change "skin.confluence" to whatever you name the containing folder as (you may also want to edit the name value as well so it shows up different from within the XBMC GUI. In our case I would use.
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <addon   id="skin.confluence.edit"   version="2.1.0"   name="Confluence (Edit)"
    then it should be available after a reboot in the appearance settings.
     You can the edit this skin however you want from SSH (unless you create a SMB share for it but that is more work then it is worth)
