Cap,
You have my deepest sympathy. We lost a very dear friend a few years ago. She was 43 and left her husband and 3 kids - 12, 15 and 17. Very sad indeed. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I remember you mentioning a while back that she was in the hospital, so my guess is that had something to do with it. While you're obviously devastated by this (as are we), what's important to remember is she's finally free from her suffering, and that you loved her.

@captain-sensible I'm sorry for your loss! Condolences and wish you and your family strength and peace in this difficult time.
Although I've been wanting to get into this for a while now (but work and other distractions keep getting in the way), I'm going to make myself draw cover art and submit it to job boards. Hopefully if I hit home runs with my clients, I'll have consistent business with them, and they'll refer me to anyone they know. (Wishful thinking) it'd be awesome if I was hired by big-name rockstars for one of their future albums.
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. Although I friendzoned her, hopefully she'll understand my opinion of her has changed.

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.

I have been a toy boy for 46 yrs, [the boss is 10 yrs older than me] age is a number on a bit of paper, understanding and maturity is the key... oh and our daughters husband is over 20 yrs older than she is, and they are happy with their lot... if you dont try you will never know.

Because the weekends have gotten busier lately, we haven't much time to have meaningful conversations like we used to. Also, because I've had a bad habit of engaging in Nice Guy Syndrome with other women in the past (I'm honest with myself to admit that), it seems as if I might've inadvertently caused her to become emotionally distant from me.
Because my gym shoes are starting to get beat up from work, I'm going to take myself shoe shopping on Tuesday and get a few pairs of casual shoes

Update: Because size 14 shoes (or "gunboats" as my grandmother would call them) are becoming harder to find in most shoe stores these days, I managed to find one pair at a big and tall shop. I wonder how hard it is for Bigfoot to find shoes in his size?

But at least they are "in the same week". With this set up, if you pull a system library update as a dependency for an AUR pkg, from AUR, you're broken.

I'm sorry Manjaro didn't work for you, but at least you found another distro you feel more comfortable with. I still want to try out the Plasma variant though. I'll keep this thread in-mind when doing that.
Also, when I was checking for notifications, I saw this link in the status section, and began to check out your website. While I was just skimming through everything, I'll admit it was interesting to look at.

It's not that it didn't work for me; it works pretty well. It's more about Manjaro's inconsistency when it comes to figure out what's their stand.

Manjaro it's a product that sells itself as a entry-level distribution, but then expects the user to make strong, seasoned judgements without enough warnings. I consider that a pretty bad decision and, honestly, a red flag.

Thanks for your comments re. the blog!
After watching DistroTube using Manjaro in his one video, I'm thinking about trying it out for myself to see what it's like. Wish me luck.
While I have faith in cybersecurity experts, I was thinking about how FontOnLake could be turned into ransomware in the sense of demanding control over the grid. If hackers or the elite can control that, and introduce a social credit score, they can therefore bring an uninformed and unprepared population to their knees. While I'm not crapping my pants in fear over that, it's still a realistic possibility.
To make myself not become a victim of this FontOnLake Linux malware in the coming times, I've decided to gradually start living an off-grid lifestyle, because it forced me to realize that centralized infrastructures can fail in situations like these. I've been spending a portion of the day looking into how to do that, and some of it sounds feasible so far, but there's a lot I'll need to learn.

Even though I've gotten comfortable with using SMTube to watch YouTube videos, I've been thinking about watching more videos on Odysee so I don't have to deal with YouTube's BS algorithm
With Halloween being a month away, I was talking with my neighbor across from me about going to their house and watching Young Frankenstein (I know, I know, Fronk-en-steen)

We don't recognise or celebrate Halloween its just a commercial con. My family celebrate Samhain and its ancient traditions, as we are all followers of the old ways.

I've come to see all holidays that way. However, I don't mind getting together with family and friends whenever a holiday rolls around again.
So because I ate small amount of fruit before taking my dad to the doctor this morning, Burger King decides to give me the finger by telling me that they stop serving breakfast around 11am. In other words, I can only have breakfast when THEY say I can. "Have it your way!" my anus!
