So you know how internet/phone companies often bring out better plans for the same price as what you're already paying, but they don't automatically upgrade you? Apparently start.ca isn't like that... just got an e-mail saying I'm getting bumped up to 250 mbps at no cost!

Ok no... Gnome HAS TO GO! Only been using it a day and I already want i3 back...

There are certain features I like about the Gnome desktop environment, maybe I can look into customizing them into i3 or modding i3 some day...

It seems like I ran out of ram from having too many things open (browser, two instances of intellij)

And it slowed down and evenntually froze before I could close some apps...

It also happened to be running an update when it froze, rebooted and got thrown into some emergency shell, said something about a UUID missing

So I managed to bork my desktop and need to reinstall linux (well there's probably a way to fix it, but I don't care to learn it, reinstalling is faster)

And I'm at a crossroads, do I reinstall manjaro with i3, or give gnome another go and go with either manjaro gnome, or give pop os a go...

As much as I like i3 there are still some things I haven't bothered figuring out yet and having a launcher is kind of nice to see what's installed on my system...

Thoughts on sublime text editor? Worth the money? Or just stick with vscode?

I have a really bad habit of saying I want to sit down and spend some snuggle time with my wife, and then realizing I have to leave for work in an hour by the time I'm ready to do it...

I've been back in school for two days, using windows on my laptop... and I'm already missing i3WM from my linux desktop...

New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.

Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.

It will take some work.

If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.

Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.

then again if I can rope some classmates into it, maybe I can try to use this idea/project for my project management class, and just pretend that i'm starting completely from scratch (I mean it's barely started as is, just got a few django templates and what not made...)

Feeling somewhat accomplished for finally working on my django project after weeks of finding reasons to put it off... blah gotta figure out all my thoughts again...

Is this a fruitless endeavor since I'll be starting my final semester next week and I won't have any time to work on it? Like would it just be better to wait till after I graduate and I'm in a more stable space in terms of time/schedule?

All this stuff about the amazon rainforest is filling me with anxiety :(

Any suggestions for Linux friendly printers that also support 11x17 inch printing?

I feel like so often in video games I get caught up in tasks and goals, rather than just enjoying the moment... Like I'd probably enjoy breath of the wild more if I just played it without thinking about what the next thing I need to do, and just have fun with it... Same thing with minecraft, instead of thinking "I need to finish this task now, and this task" just have fun exploring and experiencing the world...

Decided to take some time today, and just appreciate the intricate worlds that Minecraft generates, and the fact that they're all procedurally generated, it's pretty awesome...

Feeling saddened, joined a buddhist group on facebook hoping to find some inspiration/learn some new things... and while I've found a few good things, I've also found a bunch of quackery...

Very little upsets me more than when I see someone claim that you can cure "insert condition" with "insert diet/lifestyle"

Like I just had someone try and tell me that someone who is deathly allergic to nuts and legumes would have their allergy go away if they switched to a vegan diet...

I mean, I guess it would go away since the vegan diet would probably kill them...

You may have three wishes.

- I wish that wish counts were represented as unsigned 64-bit integers.
- I wish that no underflow checks were performed on wish counts.
- I wish to have three fewer wishes.

Thoughts for a home timeline feature, custom filters!

Basically you could assign people you follow to specific groups, and then filter by which groups you want to view in the home timeline. So I might put Persona A, B, and C into a category for linux news, and B D, and E into a category for programming info. And then I could toggle which filter I want to see in the home timeline. That way if I'm eventually following 500 people there can be some order.

Thoughts @Gargron ???

Did I really just buy 2 books on kindle so I could read their table of contents, then return them to get my money back so I can buy them again later when I'm actually ready to read them (after I finish the first book in the series of 3)...

i should have screenshotted the table of contents... oh well
