And before anyone comments on it, no, I don't have the WinXP gaming laptop on the internet. It stays offline, for everyone's safety.

If you write a lot, I recommend you give the GhostWriter app a chance.
It's beautiful, distraction-free, lightweight, open-source and just works.
Has a dark theme, a focus mode and a Hemingway mode which disables the delete key so you cannot edit 😀
So you want to make it on the #fediverse, huh?
Here's some great advice, and a brilliant analogy from @yarmo.

After waking up this morning... Yeah, it's all allergies. No fever, throat's dry but not scratchy, and no other symptoms. I just really need a stronger allergy med.
You know... I like GNOME 3, but I have the same feelings for it that I have for KDE Plasma. I like Plasma 5, but I still like KDE 3 (Trinity) more. Likewise, I like GNOME 2 (Mate) more than I like GNOME 3.
And honestly, if I *had* to pick a GTK3-based DE, it'd be XFCE, not stock GNOME. I just find it to work a bit better without the intense memory needs that GNOME has now.
Had problems with my laptop all day, and even lost data, when the thing would suddenly power off while on battery. Battery was fine, voltages were fine, OS was fine...
Turns out there's a small switch just under the RAM/HDD panel. The panel itself has a rubber foot that keeps it pressed in, and if removed while on battery (and only on battery), it powers the system off instantly. The foot wasn't tight enough against it. I really wanna know why someone at Acer thought this design was a good idea
I swear, the Poradnik Uśmiechu (Smile Guide) OST has such an amazing 80s TV vibe that's just calming, despite how terrifying the actual web series can be. Wiktor Stribog did a damn good job on it.
So... Apparently, OBS Studio *really* doesn't like i3wm on my setup or something. It barely worked, and took multiple workarounds just to get it to accept a URXVT window as a target to display.
Mate? Mate-Terminal? Working just fine.
Now to figure out how to fix my sound system, so that launching Discord won't make my music sound like it's coming from a horror movie played in hell...
I just kinda do my own thing. Trying to get into programming, one step at a time.
