virt-manager (at last!)

It’s been quite a struggle to get virt-manager working (particularly using “qemu+ssh” transport as I do).

Even they admit it. Killing 1300 Palestinians (vs 10 Israelis) is disgusting. Bombing schools, children, UN buildings including during a ceasefire. Blocking humanitarian aid. Preventing journalists from seeing what is really going on. Using white [...]
