@inktoca My recommended packages:

* Use-Package.
* Ivy + Swiper + Counsel.
* Magit + extensions as you like.
* Projectile.
* Treemacs.
* EditorConfig.
* Yasnippet + some snippet bundles.
* Flycheck.
* Specific language support for everything you think you'll write or read.

When new packages arrive in the ‘package-list-packages’ view, I can hit RET to view more info. Great!

Found this through a youtuber that I follow @switchedtolinux. Thought i'd check it out. I like the premise of Mastodon so far...

I am a Musician, Computer Geek, Woodworker and General Class Ham, among other things, i'm into a bit of Anime as well. Living in Maryland with my Wife and Daughter.

Hope to find like minded individuals, learn something new and maybe make a friend or two in the process.

We'll see what shakes out.

@libreoffice is doing some awesome stuff with documents. I've been using them for years now and their features are great and just plain work.

I've been pushing to move from O365 to LibreOffice at work and I really hope it happens soon.

I wonder how you make a living working on a #FOSS project?

I think that’s what I need to do next.
