Side-graded my (almost 10-year-old) ThinkPad X220 from Ubuntu 20.10 to Kubuntu 20.10. Great success. Not tweaked to my personal liking yet. Looking great already (needs a dark (breeze) theme tho). πŸ₯°

My lovely Mini EV arrived yesterday. I *love* it. Our home wall box charger arrives tomorrow. Meanwhile, I tried a couple of public chargers.
βœ”οΈ Instavolt - success
❌ GeniePoint - failure
Will check Zap-Map next time! Thankful to be able to have a charger at home!

I do enjoy that the most-viewed photo I've uploaded to Google Maps is a rather boring picture of a local dentist. Second is my local pub, which is cool too. The rest are random restaurants from holiday locations mostly.

Anyone got a good way to intentionally fragment a disk?
Formatted FAT, spinning rust, not SSD. Other than "use it for 10 years without defragging". I could write a script that creates, copies, and deletes files around repeatedly I suppose. Anyone got a quicker way? (on Linux)
