Can anyone help me with an issue where my Ubuntu desktop changes resolutions when I switch my KVM? It's annoying to either have to close all windows before switching or resize them when I switch back.

It (always) bears repeating that the phrase "open source" is defined by the open source definition:
The OSI invented the term "open source" and it has always been defined by the OSD. There are systemmic gaslighting campaigns ongoing to convince you otherwise. Remember: the only people who are trying to convince you that the OSD does not define open source have ulterior motives, namely convincing you that their propreitary software is open.
Pulled the trigger.
Now supporting #sourcehut financially because this is exactly the kind of thing I want.

This evening I recommend you switch off the TV and social media, and do something to keep your mind busy.
Is it playing games? Reading a book? Binge-watching Netflix? Knitting a scarf? A spot of gardening?
Go do that. 🙂
It's good to be informed and do the right things, but it's not healthy to dwell on bad things outside of your own control.
If you're still feeling anxious, have a phone call with someone and talk things out.

In a TED talk, EFF Cybersecurity Director @evacide describes the horrifying realm of stalkerware, a type of software abusers use to spy on their victims’ devices: "Full access to a person's phone is the next best thing to full access to a person's mind.” https://www.ted.com/talks/eva_galperin_what_you_need_to_know_about_stalkerware
Personal least favorite UI design change in the last 10 years - elements that disappear when *they* decide you don't need them.
Scroll bars, selection highlights, and other similar items fall under this.
And it isn't trivial to turn this back on, it's usually a moderately evil hack (or just not possible, usually).
