Does System76 usually do a Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale? We need to buy my bf a new computer and would rather not delay if there are no sales but would also hate to miss out on a discount if there is one to come.

I would be a terrible parent for so many reasons.

I told my youngest cat that he would easily go from a 5.5 to a 5.7 if he would just give out kisses freely as his brothers.

And, yeah, I know cats use their tongues as toilet paper so their kisses are extra gross but I still want them!

My oldest is the only one who will give lip kisses.

On one hand, I feel bad for the good folks in Georgia who are going to be bombarded with endless campaigning for the heart of the Senate until the run offs.

On the other hand, if they would have done their job right the first time, they could have avoided this.

I think I've beat my habit of primarily drinking beverages with caffeine, coloring, and sweeteners (sugar or otherwise).

Years ago, I quit sugary sodas for diet colas. Earlier this year, I gradually switched from caffeinated diet colas to caffeine-free diet colas (I was worried about withdrawal headaches). I briefly switched to clear caffeine-free diet lemon-lime sodas. They were so awful, it was easy to switch to clear, sweetener-free, caffeine-free flavored sparkling wster.

Hopefully we don't get any Trick or Treaters but, if we do, it's their parents' faults they are out risking people's lives not theirs so we are prepared.

Oh, haha, my ProtonMail Plus subscription doesn't need to be renewed until the end of November 2021 so I definitely have time to look at some alternatives.

Anyone have any experience with ? I'm looking for a hosted IMAP email service for my domain. Right now I'm using Protonmail, and have been for a couple of years, and I still love the project... bbbbbuuuttttt... I'm sick of having to choose between using the web interface or the slow as crap bridge. Plus, I miss Roundcube and K-9 Mail. I have about a month before I have to renew. Any suggestions?

How do you pronounce GUI? I've always known it to be pronounced gooey since the 1980s

I'm considering starting a single user instance for myself*. What is the easiest fediverse compatible server to deploy and manage? No docker. I used to run a GNU Social instance.

*Zero problems with my beloved current home but I feel most of my posts are more than a little off topic so I thought a different primary account for that stuff would be good.


That being said, I do have a pretty involved skin care regimen for a cis guy who mostly wears plant themed tees, khaki shorts, and canvas shoes without socks.

My next birthday, which is still a good bit out, will be one of those major decade milestones. It's one a lot of people joke about dreading and fearing. I don't feel that at all. I feel... amazed. It used to seem impossibly far away and now it's nearly here. And how is this old meatsack still functioning so well considering its age and the mistreatment to which it has been subjected? Anyway, I'm grateful for all of my experience and my relatively good health. I welcome old age with open arms.


It seems to me that if there is a liberal bias to the media in a capitalistic society, the free market has spoken.

Not that I believe there is a liberal bias in the media or that a free market plays much of a role in the crony capitalism with which our society is currently stuck. It just seems like the people who do think our capitalism is functional and great tend to be the same ones complaining about an alleged media bias. 🤔
