Wow, I just realized I haven't used Linux on the desktop since Unity was the graphical shell for Ubuntu. I haven't used anything since they switched back to Gnome.

Related: I'm super glad they switched back to Gnome.

Gah... having only run Ubuntu on servers for the last few years, I had forgotten how *nice* the desktop was. I can't wait to blog about this. Just gotta wait until the next podcast recording.

Can we talk about how awesome the default Disco Dingo wallpaper is? I feel like this is my spirit animal. One of the rare times I install a new OS and have zero inclination to change the wallpaper.

I'm using tmux for the first time in legit months and I've forgotten so many basic commands. This will be a fun re-learning experience. Luckily it's all super simple.

Installing snaps from the software center = mad jank.

Installing snaps from the command line = no issues.

I should've known, right?

Well... my system just completely crashed. Not saying it was Ubuntu's fault, but it's an ominous start.

If it were smarter/less apathetic I'd look at log files to find out. Instead I'll just keep using it and see if it happens again first.

I only listened to 14 hours of music last week. That's awful.

Decided that since I rarely play games anymore, it didn't make sense to keep my "gaming" desktop on Windows 10 for them. Windows 10 is just too painful to use for anything else. I just installed the new Ubuntu 19.04 release instead.

Recorded the first two episodes of my new podcast with my friend and cohost tonight! I'll share links after they get some minor edits and go live. 🎆 🎙️

We got the final versions of the logos for our website yesterday. Spending the morning fighting with a little bit of CSS to (hopefully) make something that doesn't look like utter trash across both desktop and mobile.

Debating if there's any point in my checking out Visual Studio 2019. I don't really do anything in .NET, but it could be useful for my job if I learned a bit.

I'll write another blog post one of these days... 🤔

Waiting for DNS changes to propagate is not fun.

Time to see if I have any self control or if I end up buying ALL THE THINGS during GOG's spring sale...

Yas, I got tickets to see The Accidentals! 🎶

ssh sdf@tty.livingcomputers.org and login as visitor. It is time to put the old SDF 3B2 back online to celebrate part of SDF’s past. The machine is running now and through March 23rd and 24th in

A great friend of mine is coming back from retirement to work with us again. Pretty hype for his first day today.

After a solid month of playing Overwatch with some friends... I've determined that I'm really, really, REALLY bad at Overwatch.
