Re: SJW's trying to take over Linux? What?!

I have been watching this debacle since I first heard about it, and I am quite concerned about this ... As soon as I saw the phrase "political correctness" you lost me. And "cry-bullies?" Really? They're just trying to get get people to act like grown-ups, which is apparently harder than it should ...

Re: Podcasting- what tools, technology and support do you use

[...] I record my stories and used to do it in stereo until I was advised that it was an unnecessary complication for the use case. Do you know if stereo is better for recording voice in your case? Maybe the music you play benefits from being 'cast in stereo. Do you hang blankets or anything to "qu...

Re: Podcasting- what tools, technology and support do you use

Big step, manyroads. I noticed that your recording quality improved over the first few 'casts. Good quality control. Tell us more about your equipment and your "studio." What do you use for acoustic dampening? Thank you @arjaybe. I have moved all my voice editing to audacity and run some simple Too...

Re: SJW's trying to take over Linux? What?!

It's specious. They can't "unlicense" the code any more than I can take the creative commons license off my books. I suggest they live by the code of conduct and stop blaming "social justice warriors."

Re: Writers - what tools / techniques do you use to write?

Re: Writers - what tools / techniques do you use to write?

I write with a fountain pen and transcribe it with LibreOffice, using a template. (You don't want to do carriage return-tab for paragraphs if you're going to make ePubs) You can check out my books on my website (free downloads) if you want to see how they turned out.

Re: LXQt and KDE respins - personal projects

The popup thumbnails on GTK apps are unreadable because the text is almost the same color as the background. I've encountered a similar problem when using Breeze-dark Plasma theme and GTK2 programs.
