@thegibson I feel dumb. I've got two monitors and I've never thought of placing one directly in front of me, the second off to the side. Thanks.

Besides has anyone examples or can point me into the right direction for eye-candy for Linux desktops (XFCE preferably)? I know that @vinzv did a "My Linux Desktop" post 2 years ago and I still love it.

I'm pretty much looking for exact that kind of "Look my desktop looks beautiful" kind of thing. And no I am lazy as shit and won't go through all the xfce-look.org/ entries. Is there a hashtag for this maybe?

Boosts welcome.

Your wish is granted: Equifax is destroyed.

The market forces that brought it to this state have not gone away. Presumably a smarter, leaner, organization will take it's place.

Now what?


"A/B testing showed that no one clicks 'no' so we removed it."


All good, thanks.

Note - for a second I thought you mis-spelled 'beretta' and thought maybe priests are packing heat and I didn't know it.

I work for a managed hosting provider. When customers decide to terminate our contractual relationship, there are tells ..

* 'We need to be able to login' after years of not caring about that at all

* 'Can you export our DNS zone.'

Thing is .. we're [1] cool with it. You don't have to be secret squirrel. I'll even *help* you and tell you stuff you don't know to ask.


What do I say? I say 'I'm going home to work because a co-working space is terrible."


I've only converted a few years ago, and I only really know my home church. What are the red flags you have noticed?

Hello to all the people - like me - driven back to Mastodon because the twitter ui change is terrible.


Depends on you, really. It works for some people. Most of us would end up looking like Moe, from 'The Three Stooges'.
