This is awesome! Who wouldn’t want a radio hat like this one?

None of these pique mine interest enough to try them, but I was surprised that the oil shell didn’t make an appearance. Besides fish and nushell, it was the only alternative shell I’d heard of.

New Features in Linux Mint 21.1 'Vera' Cinnamon Edition - Linux Mint
While many on the related blog post for the [_21.1 BETA release_ announcement page]( laud the new look of several applications, I cannot help but feel such changes rob Linux Mint of its distinctive look and charm, taking Mint from its instantly recognizable desktop to something decidedly more generic and bland. I cannot fathom the reason for new sounds, either. I'm not certain the goals of making Mint more _trendy_ and _beautiful_ were achieved. Unless these refer to making it look more akin to Windows 11, which nemo's new manila folders with blue highlighting echoes. The new, more vibrant colors of Windows 11 icons were also rightfully criticized as being poor choices, but Mint seems determined to follow in its footsteps. Good defaults matter, and I believe these UI changes are not. That notwithstanding, the non-UI improvements everywhere are well justified and should make Linux Mint more comfortable for all to use. Flatpaks were rather inconvenient to use, and much work has gone into making those easier to manage. Especially exciting is the new _ISO Verification Tool_!

As an addendum, stations often offer Android apps, if that is desired.

There is likely a way to stream local (public) radio stations using a browser, granted one likes the music of at least one station that does so. I find this provides excellent recommendations and tons of helpful information about the picks for the playlist, which itself is typically logged by time.

This provides no built-in download option, though if great recommendations are the focus, nothing beats public radio.

I recently began playing Doom (1993) and StarCraft: Brood War (1998). The soundtracks for both are fantastic.

They run their fingers across the lines to read the patterns by touch.

Thanks for sharing! Finally, a real reason to use XFCE.

xsetroot -solid black was about as much effort as I wanted to put into how my desktop looks. And besides, I couldn’t be a 1337 hax0r if I used something more friendly looking :P

Is this fvwm, or something similar? It’s a great looking desktop! :D

Linux Mint endeavors to stay snap-free. Might be of interest, even if it doesn’t ship with KDE by default.

It should re-direct one to a creepy video with the mark of the devil, vi vi vi, all over it.

I find incorrect verb tenses to be more annoying, which is unfortunately becoming the norm in places for which this is not a variation due to dialect. Things such as, could have ran, drank, sang, or swore, and so on, in the stead of the correct could have run, drunk, sung, and sworn.

Is that so? I often* say such things as coulda, musta, gotta, thinkin’, 'bout and s’pose, all of which feature word shortening or changed pronunciation, yet produce negligible effect 'pon mine orthography.

*pronounced without the t sound, you heathens! Unless you also say soften and fasten

Yes, that is precisely what it does.

Once I get 90% of my MVP (minimum viable product) finished and have to polish it up and fix minor things. The devil is in the details.

It’s already difficult enough for me to use keyboards that don’t have Caps Lock act as another Control, not to mention all the changed special character locations on a German QWERTZ keyboard (cf. US standard layout), that I don’t wish to make my life any more painful by moving the letters around too.

What sort of forum are you looking for? By which I mean to ask, what topics and level of knowledge do you seek?

Imagepipe (available in F-Droid) is what I use to decrease image size.

"The north-German state of Schleswig-Holstein plans to switch to open source software, including LibreOffice, in its administration and schools. In doing so, the state wants to reduce its dependence on proprietary software, and eventually end it altogether. By the end of 2026, Microsoft Office is to be replaced by LibreOffice on all 25,000 computers used by civil servants and employees (including teachers), and the Windows operating system is to be replaced by GNU/Linux." This article by Mike Saunders shows several photos from the Open Source conference, also linking to an interview with the Digital Minister Jan Philipp Albrecht and a PDF of the Parliment's Planning. (both in German)
