Installation complete! Coming to you live from my new installation of Kubuntu. Which is exactly the same as my previous installation of KDE Neon, except Iwith a bigger partition space.

@withquieteyes David Revoy is an artist who uses Kubuntu because of KDE's support for his graphical tools and useful art-related features! He's got a write-up about it here:

It's what convinced me to try switching my Arch build to KDE.

(I did use Ubuntu for a while at the beginning, but I like the more hands-on and bleeding-edge features of Arch, so I switched. Kubuntu's very nice if you just want stability and out-of-the-box stuff, though!)

My only thing with Tusky is I kind of wish having a queue that I can stick things in to post over a long period of time
Because I kind of don't visit often, I just turn up when I remember this app exists

I've been on neon for ages now and I have to repartition my computer anyway, so I'm thinking of switching to Kubuntu. Anyone have opinions on it? Or suggestions, I'm open to ideas

Autofocus glasses!
What with the inexorable march of time etc, I find it harder to change focus from near to far.
These glasses have refocusable lenses (from some horrible cheap dial-eye specs), a couple of little linear servos to drive them, and a couple of endoscope camera modules to track my eyes.
The focus is adjusted based on where my eyes are converging.

americans love to say things like "drive to the store"

Getting out of bed is extra hard if you wake up with a stuffie friend like this one in your arms.

a computer is basically a weird animal, and when programmers touch it they get very distressed

Bunch of Our Flag Means Death doodles, because I'm still totally not over this show (never will be) #OurFlagMeansDeath #ofmd

One of the reasons I fell in love with writing fanfic (this time around anyway) is how the research deepens my experience of the canon.

I go through the story over and over: take screenshots, write down dialog, listen to tone and speech patterns. I see costumes, props, all the funny little details that I don't notice when I watch things the normal way. I research characters, I think about worldbuilding, I trace events. It's just so much more.

I am reading a book about probability. I, the reader, picked up your book, which has "probability" in the subtitle and math in the summary. I do not need to be convinced that math and probability are Important Actually. I AM ALREADY READING YOUR BOOK. Shut up about Plato and epistemology and actually talk about statistics!
