The issue with the upcoming regarding the citizenship question is overblown.

There are only *two* things that *must* be answered on the census form: The physical address in question (which is usually pre-filled), and the number of alive & born humans in the address on April 1st.

All other questions are optional.

'Marking tires with chalk to track how long a car has been parked violates the Constitution, an appeals court found'

While I'm a big fan of Plasma, the PIM suite (Kontact et al) is still an inferior solution to what offers.

Of course, is still the best.

This is an ad from a 1998 issue of Macworld, and I feel like it could be a meme template.

@uranther what's wrong with 1080p? It's just the right resolution for a 24" monitor

I decided it was time to distro . Plasma 5.15 was to enticing, as is the Kubuntu PPA.

Besides, I want better Vulkan and DXVK support with my Nvidia drivers, something Debian is going to lack for awhile.

Boy do I have a story to tell about this, though. Maybe later.

I have a surprise for ScreenShotSunday tomorrow, really going against the grain this time


If you use , it takes over the functions of /etc/crypttab and /etc/fstab during boot.

Also if you have multiple encrypted drives, with the same LUKS password that you mount at boot, SystemD will automatically pass that password on to all remaining drives after entering the first drive's password.

So it has been awhile since I looked at this support thread for Solus, I gotta say, people were helpful!

The web browser Brave is marketed as a privacy-friendly ad-free alternative, but that's pretty disingenuous.

Brave exists not to protect privacy, but to make money from selling ads.

Brave is a commercial company funded by venture capital. Its business model is selling advertising and cryptocurrency investment.

One of Brave's owners is Peter Thiel's Founders Fund. Thiel is also the head of Palantir ( and on the board of Facebook.

I do not recommend using Brave.
