Some Thoughts on Gratitude
Day 7 of being more grateful. Today is the Thanksgiving holiday here in the US. Historically this is a day to spend with extended family. Aunts, Uncles, and Grandparents when I was younger. Parents, Brothers, Sisters, Nephews, and Nieces now. I miss you guys, grateful you're safe and wish we could be together, hopefully next year.
ImageMagick being difficult
Day 2 of trying to have more gratitude. Today I'd like to say thank you to all the programmers, volunteer and paid who have made my career possible. Especially the open source ones, but we don't live in a perfect world, and I'm still thankful for the devices I use and enjoy that happen to be closed source.
@libreoffice 7 is awesome, I just wish they had actual repositories so I could get updates in my package manager (apt) automatically.
