Krita, Tablets, Rick Gervais, and Facemasks Oh My :-)
Making banana bread for my dad since apparently he's like me and really doesn't need or want anything for Fathers Day. Except a visit from his granddaughter and possibly some banana bread. 😀
Learning three new things at the same time isn't wise. In fact it's frustrating, tedious, maddening... and fun. :-) Hooray for YouTube and #Krita !! This is so frickin' horrible but I'm proud of it anyway. LOL
You hear that Google? Bring back G+! ;-)
Well it's about fucking time.
On a roll during this pandemic. Already more blog posts written in the last two or three months than in all of either 2018 or 2019. :-)

RSS never disappeared, it just became a bit forgotten about as people got sucked into proprietary platforms. I have used many different RSS apps and services and have come back to hosting my own (https://apps.nextcloud.com/apps/news) but Feedly, Inoreader and Tiny Tiny RSS are all good alternatives.

I had an issue with snap-packaged software a while ago (related to sandboxing) and now the more I read about it, the more I want to just stick with .deb files.
