I may hate Joe, but I love that he’s making the Limeys mad.

Happiness comes from goals, love, and expression. I strive to do as much of all three as possible.

Live a happy life with people that I love.

Can an animal create sugar from sunlight and carbon dioxide?

“Man, I was really feeling shitty about this useless war. But now that I heard a Russian propaganda song from the Drum & Bugle Corp, I’m feeling a lot better. Thanks Putin.”

1 year later.

“Huh, South America’s been getting real authoritarian lately. Wonder why that is?”

Writing, listening to music, learning Stenogrophy, and practicing Euphonium.

Nice. I currently don’t use it, but I oughta start. It seems pretty great.

I’ve been using a P2P sharing application called Nicotine+, and it’s been working wonders for me so far in terms of music.

They’re slow, and I don’t need them.

There never was a utopia. There never will me. Humans are so flawed, greedy, and hateful that we will never have anything close to a utopia.

Expect a blog on how to do this soon.

I’m gonna be honest, I may know how to manage Linux, servers, and the like, but I don’t know shit about coding actual applications. But that doesn’t mean I still don’t benefit from Linux’s open source nature. When an application doesn’t work, or I feel the need to change something, there’s always someone smarter than me who has a patch or a change that I can use.

Nice. I use Teeline, but I’ve always wanted to learn a phonetic shorthand system.

I play baritone too! I’m actually in the process of auditioning for all state with Euphonium right now.

Alright. Working on so many things lately. Studying Stenography, writing, playing Euphonium, and getting all A’s is not an easy task, but so far I seem to be doing pretty well.

My Dell Latitude 3400 broke about a week ago after a fellow student accidentally knocked it off the table. Wasn't worth repairing, so I decided to buy the cheapest computer I could get my hands on while I give the guy some time to pay me back. Looking forward to writing on this Ancient 2014 netbook.

The EU already burns 42% of its waste to generate power.

Fedora Silverblue. I really like the stability of having a base image that you slap a bunch of Flatpaks on to.

“Remembering You”. It’s the closing theme of the TV show, “All In The Family”.

Ubuntu is not bad, but there are better options. It’s unstable, a little slow, and I don’t much like their take on GNOME. Plus, they are attempting to replace many of the system apps with Snap packages, which are slower and worse in general.

PopOS is pretty great. The Cosmic desktop is super nice, and it seems to be pretty stable. It’s got a lot of hardware support and is very beginner friendly.

Linux Mint is probably your best bet. It’s extremely stable, simple, and functional. Cinnamon is an amazing desktop environment, and their takes on XFCE & Mate are good too. Plus, they’ve got a version based directly on Debian.

Xonotic. I’d die almost immediately because I fucking suck.

I still read newspapers. My town has a free newspaper delivered to anyone and everyone. Most people don’t read them. However, I really enjoy it. We have pretty good writers and they cover news that I actually care about. Plus, having a flip phone, newspapers are a nice distraction on the bus.

The complete season is available on the Pirate Bay in 1080p and 360p.

Getting out. I know it doesn’t work all the time, and can in fact make things work, but just going outside and talking to people can be a real mood booster.

No. It’s Void Linux with a custom Neofetch. That’s SlStatus on the regular DWM bar.

Learn an instrument. Met a lot of amazing people and had a lot of amazing experiences in band.

Linux. It started with bash scripts, and then I wanted to branch out, then I started learning HTML, Javascript, CSS, and Ruby because of Jeckyl.

Yeah, but I’m talking about Florida. Everyone here has air conditioning. The people that don’t have the money to power air conditioning usually north to some place cheaper.

Yeah. Tourists are annoying, and can kill your culture. But they pay the bills.

Depends. I’m in Florida, and we’re so used to heat waves that it doesn’t effect us much. We just stay inside if we can, drink tons of water, cover up, and we’re all fine. Cold spells are much worse for us, because many people don’t have heat in their homes, and we don’t own very many cold clothes.

I feel like a lot of these are non issues. It’s not like we have any shortage of land, and for the most part, we don’t have a shortage of water, especially considering that many farmers are using well or rain water. And while veggies do have significant amounts of protein for a small amount of carbon, you have to eat much more to get the same amount of protein. I don’t mean to shit on vegetarians, and I understand some of their logic, but I think it’s gonna be a while before the economic and environmental benefits of plant-based protein can even come close to the health benefits of meat.

Wallpapers on workspace thumbnails in GNOME 42?
When using GNOME, I really like using workspace thumbnails. But, I would like to add the desktop wallpaper instead of the gray background. I couldn't find anything in the settings, just perfection, or on any forums. How do you enable it?
