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.


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.


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.


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.


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.




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



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



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?
