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.

Work on all-state music, write, and study.

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

Yeah. I would personally recommend using a website that you own, and then linking to in on Lemmy, but it is entirely possible to use Lemmy as a blog.

Pretty alright. Been super busy lately with the start of the school year, but apart from that, everything is going pretty good.

Arch Linux is not inherently more secure than other distros. Try Fedora, Debian, or even gasp Ubuntu.

I am both the tech conserverative and the FSF member. I use Ubuntu for my phone and desktop, Emacs with EXWM, Icecat, and Tails.

In most cases, you don’t have anything to fear, since the encryption on Android phones is pretty good these days. However if you really feel like it could compromise you in any way, I can’t imagine a hammer wouldn’t do the trick.

Don’t forget Freetube!!

Living a good life with my Alcatel Smartflip right now.

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?

Yee haw.

Have you ever donated to open sourced software? If so, who did you donate too and why?
I personally donate to Solus, but I would like to see just how many people give their money to FOSS projects.


Fuck cars

How can I force a terminal application to run in my preferred terminal emulator?
I run i3 and sometimes Openbox. I use the xfce4 terminal. However, when I use rofi to open up a terminal application like ranger, it always opens in Xterm, even though I don't have Xterm installed. I run OpenSUSE Leap btw.
