    I knew that. I just felt it was awkward because I have more experience with being an adult than she does (she turned 20 back in August, and I turned 27 back in January). Granted, my grandparents on both sides were 10 years apart, but their generation was completely different.

    Some of my coworkers have been trying to push me to ask this one waitress out, and I told them that I'm not interested in her because of the age difference, among other reasons. However, the more I've gotten to know her, the more I realized that I hesitated expressing my feelings for her...

    Need suggestion buying laptop.

    Purism's Librem 14 comes to mind: https://puri.sm/products/librem-14/ It's $1,570, which is more expensive than what you asked for, but I did see they do accept coupons and other discounts. Other than that, the description of it sounds like it matches what you're looking for. Be aware that it's...

    I'm running Mint 20.1, and while I was able to download and run it in the Terminal, I encountered some weird glitch in the Software Manager where I could install it but it wouldn't run. I've encountered this issue very rarely in the past when installing things through SM.

    I tried doing that last night, but I saw it wasn't listed for some reason. If this helps knowing, I installed it as an appimage. I'm wondering if that has something to do with it?
